Home safe and now at work, another great day at Rowher!
Thanks to Bahamaben and jamin_mathis for coming out. Those climbs and decends are alot more intimidating when you can see farther than 50 feet!
We had one flat and had to taste gas once.(note to self- need better sipon) Thanks jamin for the axle wrench!

Rowher flats ride 1-6-09

had a nice ride today at Rowher Flats. it was a beautiful day and i rode with Jamin Mathis and Klammer. there was not too much dust and only a few other riders were out. it was a little tight getting to work at 2 in Ventura (i was a little late) but well worth it to meet some new ridin' buddies. i have a few photos and i will try to post them and one short video. klammer said something about photobucket and i have an account but i have not figured out how to transfer the video to ADV.
lookin' forward to more rides!!
Ben

PS
i tried to upload the pictures directly, but it said upload of file failed. maybe the picture is too big. suggestions??

Cry

Ride report: I got up, loaded up the truck and said "see you later" to my dog Junkyard



When I got there and meet bahamaben who was already there and I got to check out his sweet KTM450 and Klammer got there shortly after me



It was a really nice day for a ride a little hazy for photography



We hit the trail



Dr. Ben killing that corner



soon after starting Klammer got a flat, he pumped it up and rode back to his truck to fix it and told Ben and I to do a loop and check back with him.



once we were all back up and running we got back out there




Toward the end of the day I had to switch to my reserve witch usualy gives me 30 miles or so but it was gone after less than 5 and I ran out of gas Klammer gave me some gas (Thanks dude) and we both got to taste gasoline in the process.

Over all another great ride

i was up there around 1, rode around a bit, then decided to try my look up lookout from the front side. my little wr did well, zipped up the first hillclimb but on the second one i made it almost to the top. once i stalled i decided just to turn around. i was really only about 20 meters from the top but it was pretty loose to start on. i wiggle-turned and set the wr down to take these pics:





you know the drill, steeper than it looks, yadda yadda.

this was fine, picked the bike up, continued to turn around however when i got about 3/4 around i shifted my weight to my left foot, which unfortunately was waay off the ground as it was on the downhill side.

that was a bit of a whack as the bike threw me off downhill... dumb dumb dumb.

anyway i met a guy on an old dr650 who provided me with a rolling rock or two and everything felt better. i made it back down the way i had come, although i was pretty much sliding the whole way on the last (first) one. seemed looser than it was when i came up!

putted around a bit more but was losing light so that was it... good thing this wr is so light to pick up.
