Hell Yeah!!

What a kick ass weekend!
I'll sort through the pics and post them tonight.
I had my first flat tire on this trip. I was in the middle of Titus Canyon when it happened.
Good thing BigJohnBundy (the Sultan of Spam) was there to lend a hand and some tools. Dude, I owe you my first born.
Note, my first born will be returning from Iraq soon and I gave him your address so he has a place to stay

Thank you to those who put it all together and also for the unofficial memorabilia that I can not confirm or deny the existence of.

It was good to see all you FF's and I'm already looking forward to the next one.

RR coming soon.

since smug is still down, let me bore you with words.....

the weather was just perfect in the 3 days many of us were there. mid 60s in the daytime and in the 50s at night. the wet or damp dirt we're expecting is pretty much gone, except in some places in the canyons and higher elevations. this nOOb ate a lot of dust and dirt on one occasion...

lots of riders showed up, and let me see if i can remember everyone... 8)h (me), traveltoad, trailtrick, rsc450, sito, dsm8, rider914, hugo, dannyg, amit, rebarman, itsatdm, eggroll, stu_fl, broken spoke, the austrian, gratis, jab, jason, spafxer, wotevah, galacticgs, vern, bic, 60z, yzlvr, nowwhat, terranova, klrwoody, bigjohnbundy, natethenOOb, joefromsf, purelick, rhinoeater and riverrat. all of the guys on the camping list showed up except for 1 whom i trustingly reserved a campsite... , don't worry....1 incident won't ruin my trust to you FFs

i appreciate all the kind words for organizing the event and for handling the 2 nights of meal deal. sorry the chili didn't get served sat night cuz the event planner was wondering in another planet....

there were like 15 FFs in the meal deal and you guys ate a total of 44 pieces of foot long hotdogs... , hell yeah, i was planning to bring home the rest and have it for my lunch this week, and all i got are slices of cold spam..thanks bigjohn..

lucky bastards...not only got a good deal on the camp site and meal, they also brought home a nice memoriblia of a drinking glass with the commemorative design....don't dare post a pic ...cuz you will be banned...

My Report

This trip was a blast! Met up with DannyG and Amit in the valley for the ride up. Got to Panamint around 6:00 on Friday.

For Saturday it was myself, DannyG, Amit, and Whotevah (LC) We left Panamint and headed for Dante's View.








From there we headed to Furnace Creek Wash Rd through Greenwater.

Freeway


We then came across an offshoot that led to some mines. DannyG assured us that it would still be wide and grated, and it was for awhile

Then it turned into a tight up hill two track with lots of whoops and loose rocks and gravel.

taking a break after the carnage.



No photos of the downed bikes, but here's one of some unusual markings in the dirt


I believe Amit has some video of this one...

The guys coming down the trail





We then headed down Furnace Creek Wash rd to the 178, then looped back up through furnace creek and home. 260 miles total, 40 in the dirt.

On the way home:

Gotta learn how to pack lighter for only two days of camping....

Thanks again Joel, for putting together a great one

I'll be back for sure!

the drive up to death valley was smooth and fast. but not for this guy who got his share of friday the 13th


driving past jawbone



doing 75 on the 14 seems to be reasonable to this chpg


whenever getting fuel in trona, the pump price at this station is much cheaper than the name brand gas in town


trona/wildrose rd



rsc450 and i made it to psr at 11:30 am after stopping at mojave for more groceries.

soon sito greeted us with his new to him wr400 sporting new plastics


here's rsc450 unloading his brand new spanking 990S from ebay


another rider (stu) with a fireman's jacket..


bigjohn showed up right after


then the speedracers appeared out of the blue.. ; nice job there mark on an almost all black se...


eventually the girls were able to get ready to do the chloride and titus loop


although it's a straight pavement, the ride wasn't boring at all; come on rsc450 sit down...you're blocking my view...



dsm8 and stu


a little curve made it more exciting...


stopped at stovepipe for more fuel




roger looking good..besides from not being orange crazy; i wonder for how long he can resist not to buy ktm uniforms....





more pavement and dsm8 saying hello


so was stu...


eggroll could not wait to stand on the pegs; if he only knows having a barn door his mileage may vary...


here's spafxer with a windshield on top of a windshield



wotevah spent a good fortune on his outfit.


enough of the fashion show...after i eat my dinner, we will get dirty...
