Looks like an Acerbis Cyclops to me.

I don't want to rib you about your propensity for get-offs on this trip, but I will say ... Be careful out there.

Out of 8 riders I was tied for best with having no crashes compared to everyone else's 2 or 3.

But then I had a spectacular 50 mph almost-an-endo where I went over the bars and the bike went to the side.

I put (another) crack in the Shoei, and when they asked me my name I could not answer them...

So darn

So from Tecate we hit the road


I missed a great shot, here we were a bunch of guys in full gear on dirt bikes riding on the highway, and then we pass these guys riding 2 up on a street bike in the dirt.
We pulled over so the ladies in the truck could start riding and theses "real" bikers passed us on the highway


The guys got to work lifting bikes, while I stayed back 'documenting" the work.





A short time later these two ADVer's rolled up and chatter for a bit


Finally we hit the dirt and took off toward Rancho Santa Veronica

I had a few technical glitches with my gear this trip! We had a quick bite at Rancho Santa Veronica.


I was mistaken thinking it would ALL be on dirt. we did connect the dots with some pavement runs.


Anyway the ride turned rough when we hit the goat trail.




These are the easy parts because I just could not stop for pics in the hard bits.

Got my first taste of night riding ever, IT was BITTER cold, and my heated gear controller crapped out on me. I have mixed feelings about heated gear. It sure is nice, but it's one more thing to fail. Fleece don't break.
If I was alone I would have taken the fairing apart and wired up the jaket direct. But we were on a schedule so I froze with the others.


our only stops were for others to catch up...


On the dry lake we had the first wipeout as John hit a rut and had a bit of a wipeout. He might have fractured a thumb but he pushed on.


Then we crossed a dry lake and a lot of deep sand, at night. Many complained but I have to say the Lynx HID was fantasic and I really enjoyed my first night run, even though it was COLD!!

We got to San Felipe and I broke out the beers I'd been carrying with me all day. These FF's never stopped to take a beer break all day so I decided I didn;t need to carry that much weight no more!

We hit the restaurant and had a proper dinner:




We locked up the bikes in the courtyard and hit the hay


Septic Skeptic got odd man out and vollunteered to sleep on the floor. Fortunately I'd brought some camping gear so he had to go to work.
