So it begins. After a quick break-in to a few of the local haunts with some friends that I enjoy to ride with on a regular basis. I find myself wanting, fantasizing, obsessing over an adventure ride of a longer nature.

The guys that I drank & smoked my way through school with are having the annual fishing trip in the eastern sierras. I'm IN!, but I'm not taking a pole.

So we sit around the camp fire and catch up......some are married, some are divorced, some buying houses, some losing houses, some kids in college, some kids in prison...you know life. Sometimes you just feel blessed hearing the stories of others. Anyway tomorrow they will be on a boat and I will be on a bike.

To the west the mountains are beautiful, steep and the snow is low.
I want to ride my new bike not wrestle it so I head for the other side of the 395.

,but first a little hillclimbing


The big girl can climb!

The heavy bike will find traction, you just have to stay on!

Now this is riding! It's a beautiful place to be and I have 3 more days.

God that bike looks good, can I get 10 minutes with her in private?

The misses keeps mentioning, "when are you going to sell that other motorcycle?"

Other, I was thinking about adding one more....

I just had to explain that 525 EXC in the garage too! That makes 4. A nice round number I think.

Wives aren't good at math, must be the problem...

I love the desert, but I'm thinkn' when the temp goes up this high elevation stuff is where it's at. Guess that's a no brainer.

Hey what's up.............? I start a RR and Smugmug goes on the blink. I got pictures to post Damit!
