Is KJ the guy who rode his bike home? He pulled over and let me by(I was in the yellow Ford if your reading this) on the way out. I watched in my mirror and thought that guy is tough! If he kept going out to 395 I was going to pull over and throw his bike in my truck. He turned south.

I would give KJ on a TW200 (San Bernardino) and Punkenduro on a KLX250(Murrieta) the 2 most determined adv nOOb riders we ever met!

These 2 young men rode they bikes through the entire event in the rain, wind, and snow!

Good job....

some more pix:





On Friday almost everyone was getting their stuff together and getting that extra gas:




I was with the first group to go out to Ballarat:






The plan was to ride pleasant canyon and then catch up with the 11am group for Goller and Mengal. It was going great. I was riding towards the back of the pack when I come to a corner and see this.





I wonder what could be the hold up??

It turnd out to be a set of steps with water and a right hand turn just for good measure.

Here is rammer on the big 950:



I have to admit that I was skeered and wanted my momma. If it wasn't for rammer who said he would take his 950 through there, I probably woulnd't have tried. Thanks Rammer!

Here is another shot of scruffy going through. It shows how steep it is and it shows the turn:






I have to say that the 950 would have been so much easier to ride that section with better gearing.

The other hard section was a hill climb with a sharp right hand turn and lots and lots of loose rocks. I actually lost control and ended up dumping it. It was rammer and scruffy who walked down about 400 feet and helped me get going again. I have to say that without them giving me a push, my 950 would still be up there


now for the ride down. again the 950 gearing was the wrong choice. there was this long constant rocky downhill and steps in the mix.

here is scruffy with some of the steps. what I didn't get in the picture is a 300 foot drop to the left. This was not a turn to screw up on:




We aslo pased a wood bridge but I didn't get any pictures.


Pictures from one of the look outs:







Then it was back down to Wingate Rd. where we went back to Ballarat to get our gas stash. There must have been 30+ motorcycles going the other way. It was crazy. We got gas and spent 20-30 minutes just shooting the shit.


Stay tuned. Next up Mengal.


Nate
