Hey B you aren't going to see many action pics of the bike...the 690 was too far in front of the guys with the cameras....bwahahaha
The bike is perfect..the fi worked flawlessly at altitude and after the SE it felt like a 250

I am putting a 8" light on the front tomorrow for you

Day 1 Friday

Let me first start with a big thank you to Jeff (Tahoeacr) and his better half Marilyn (Mrs. Tahoeacr) You two did a great job this weekend.


This weekend was epic.


Day 1 for me was Friday. I rode with the first group only cause my pride wouldnt let me ride in the other group. There are some very good riders in this group and i was glad just to be along for the ride. The group rode so fast i didnt take many pics but i will post what i got. I had fun fellas meeting and riding with you all.

Friday the womens took the boat out on the lake.


High Desert






Jeff worked hard to get this sign posted by the DMV


You cant tell but crazy man Javier was doing a burn out for the camera

Day 2 Saturday

Into the woods for some single track.

We stopped here and Mike taped up the guys hand who broke it in a down hill spill.












Rest stop and repair












This is six foot seven 290lbs of Dale the bad ass from Oakland. He rode that 950 like a Mnt. bike. He made the 950 look so small like me on a Transalp.


















Emerald Bay

What is not shown in those hillclimb pics/videos is there is 0 run at that. Your going along the hill side track and it turns around a tree and goes up . Next year I will make it harder. Not enough carnage pictures.
