Just got home had a great time, didn't see any of you. Did see some of the airplane crash sites and the husky memorial! Oh and the petroglyphs!! Very cool stuff! Ate a cheeseburger and fries at TT's on the 395 and headed home.

Hope you all had a great time and had fun!

2nd day..

Saturday morning the plan was Haski and B1A crash Ransburg for lunch and back to camp.... in theory easy 80 miles

left the camp with Alon on his 950SE, Vern on his DR400Z on 2 of his friends which i cna't remember there names at the moment (need to stop with the candy) 950A and 990.


since this ride was Dezert Skills... we did some practice:






work out in the sand



and after long day my 650 wanted to take a power nap...



another gr8 weekend... next weekend WARP

Vicky and I decided to drive out sat morning. I'm still nursing the collarbone back to health and she's new to the dirt (and pretty new to motorcycles in general), so we're a good pair.

Met a lot of new folks. Here's Frank's boys.



and they find a big kid to play with








Vicky on her new XT225, a 2000 bought with 147 miles on it. My new toy in the background.


Jeff starts his skills instruction, an excellent session. Thanks Jeff for doing this, I learned a lot and I wasn't even riding.


first topic - good cornering technique. Jeff demo's it.
Hard down the straight


Hard on both brakes before the turn


Look ahead around the corner


Weight forward, head over the triple clamp, look further down the trail, bike follows where the eyes look.


get on it!
