From today. I'm trying to compile a number of videos for people cross shopping bikes. I already did the CRF250L against the WR250R. Today we did the KLX250R.

Video from yesterdays ride. I made a video of my wrecks, but it uploaded all messed up on Youtube so I'm trying to get it fixed somehow before I share.

Wrecks from yesterday. Last one was by far the worst I have wrecked my bike so far.

Teenagers...... Aaaaarrgh!

Well isn't this special.

8 days ago my favorite nephew left for his 7 day senior beach week in Myrtle Beach. Has yet to show back up at home. Is not answering my texts. Has not finished prepping his bike, nor ever done a pre-trip load-out. Our schedule is to depart on Monday, but ?????

Grrrr. I can handle it. I'm cool with knuckle headed teenagers who don't have a clue about responsibility to others. His Dad on the other hand, is ready to tear his head off..... as I would be if he were mine.

So I'll just sit back and bide my time. We may, or we may not be going. I'm not the one calling the shots. If he punts the trip thru stupidity, I'll just head to Labrador and finally ride that new section of the Trans-Labrador Highway they opened in 2010. It's all good. Namaste'

My ride this weekend

Hey Jeff .....
Sorry to hear about your situation. I know you worked hard putting everything together. Im guessing you will hear from him soon and the trip will begin as planned. Im thinking positive for you.

Maybe I can cheer you up for a moment. I had a very interesting overnight last night. Long story short ..... I accidently filled the GS with diesel fuel. Because it took so long to fix the problem we had to ride Alhambra at night to find a campground. On the way to Alhambra I dropped the GS in Shoe Creek fully loaded and on the way home I had a flat tire. That should put a smile on your face.
