So, are you going to let us know how your trip is going? Where you are posting your ride report and photos? We have been worried sick, wondering how you are doing!

As it was, I rode up to Pozo and hung out til about 3:30 and decided you guys musta headed back the other way or something. Looks like it was an ideal day!
walt, put a hole in your kayak and you'll see yourself on your bike more often.....

sorry we missed you, blame it on ddennis....just like the CEDRIC ride, he did his 30K maintenance service on the side of the dirt road ...

It's a tradition, and ya just don't mess with tradition.


And Joel you have the most uncanny ability to bore any motorcycle to sleep. I am most impressed. Glad nothing got hurt or rehurt.


Bummed I could make it, work sucks stuff, looks like it was a good day.

fools get rewarded

it was foolish to get up at 5 in a very cold and dark morning, while a strong storm advisory is in effect...

i constantly comforted myself, by hoping all the weather forecaster are wrong.




rode with tom and jon from my house to roxford; few guys were there up and early...





check out the threatening clouds...and we refused to look up...

aussie rider daz&shy and his yellow gs...


techtown, rruugger, and sopascat



my good bud artboy and his grey gs.., almost missed this one; great he got the doc's clearance before the ride


the roxford gang starting to get bigger






buenfeelings and artboy; in a matter of 15 minutes, the sky started to look good...



this rider caught my eye; turned out it's sospelotudo who in the last minutes wants to ride...

good to see you guys (and girl) for our annual Ojai to Pozo ride-- what a beautiful day in the Carrizo wilderness! Next time i want to motel it somewhere in SLO to be able to explore the Pozo area without having to rush back home the same day . . .

Btw, i rode 34 miles after hitting reserve on my 4 gallon IMS tank coming back through Soda Lake Rd last night, and still have a lot of fuel left in those shrouds hanging below the petcock!

yeah, good day and a perfect weather with lots of FFs... mike, we should get together and do another big bike ride again.

i was just trying to see what's the underbelly of the pig so i put it to sleep. it was uphill and didn't put my weight on the front (after 3 months of rehab, i forgot how to ride... ), then as i try to make the turn, the front tire washed out.

really lucky i didn't get hurt, but dang bmw, everytime it get's dropped even a gentle one, it cost $200 in parts...

My 610 is as big as I want. Next bike will be very, very small

My lust list so far.

Gas-Gas 450 Desert for a one and only. 11k though

Or keep the 610 for Baja and get a Husky 250txc or te310 for LA

Or maybe a older trials bike just for fun/learning
