If I can get the supermoto fired up I'll be there. Unless someone wants to borrow me their 990R for a test ride. I have to be back by noon though, gotta go to work at two.

Looking like it'll be a total loss. I'll find out for sure Monday. If so, I'll probably just end up buying the white '13.

Nope. Figured we'd do the loop thru the pass over to Parker Canyon Lake and then come back in thru the west gate. But I can be swayed to deviate from that loop if someone wants to go elsewhere.

I would want them to total it if I were in your situation. I would not want it back after that crash. Start from scratch with a nice new one.

Yep. Not to mention every black motorcycle I've ever owned has tried to kill me. I have yet to crash a bike of any other color.

Well then, the answer is no, you can't borrow the 990R

Did some looking around the in the northern part of the county today.
Winchester range.





Bass canyon.





The southern Galiuro, with the Rincons and the Santa Catalina high country.





These guys looked content.









Explored the western foothills of the Winchesters, then carried it on home on a new route.



The 650 is working very well in this type of country!
