Man we had a heck of a ride.

I hope our first timers (Mr. Twisty, Uncle Jessie, Dillon and Devon) had a BLAST.

Out of 8 riders and 496 miles the only problems we had were a bike sunk in a mud hole, a thrown chain and two flats

I really got to hand it to Devon and Dillon (BajaDoug's sons) for their first "big" ride.....they rode like CHAMPS. At times you would have thought they've been riding for years. Super cool to see them have such a good time and ride so many cool places .

I didn't take a ton of pics, but I'll get them online this weekend. IT was a GREAT ride. Hot, but a ton of fun, lots of great food, and lots of ice cream! I cooked the battery on Wednesday and had to bump start it Wednesday Thursday and today. Had ZERO problems other than that, and had a great great ride.

Owwww! That sounded painful when the "..shit.." was several octaves higher than normal! Did you dent the tank with the "boys"?

That episode must have sent you guys packing earlier than expected. No wonder I did not see your truck over there at the parking lot when I rode through there last weekend.

The crack is the front of the motor where it mounts to the frame and it also bent the kickstand.. I was real lucky it could have been real bad if that tree was still in the road. This was a lesson .

Treemuncher i didn't get hurt at all it just scared me and i scream like a little girl

This one gets boring at 1:00








We met these boys out in the middle of NOWHERE.
After they pulled that tree out of the way they gave us an ice cold Bud-Light
