Got up early this morning and raced out to Barstow to meet up with 2on2off and his buddy OldBMW.
They were out scouting routes for Jim's CANAL project > http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=932268
Covered ~100 miles of big open desert from Barstow to Red Mountain. I don't think we saw anybody until the Husky monument.























We split up at J-burg and I hustled powerlines and no-lines back towards the Cajon Pass









Arrived home just a sunset with 275 miles on the clock



Was a great day to ride

On a side note...

It was about halfway thru the day before I realized I had crossed paths with OldBMW (also Jim) before.
Over 3 years ago in northern Nevada on this little adventure > http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=603054
Shameless plug

Not uphill, but there was a little head wind.
Traction was limiting factor. Bike showed 117

Jim sent me some cell phone pics from yesterday...

Howdy!

Just took my new XT250 up to Rowher yesterday. I live next door to the place, so let me know of you want weather conditions. I've only been riding a year (ttr125l), but am looking forward to longer rides and more adventures now that I have the perfect bike.

Hoping that snow and ice will be not be a problem due to recent weather.

Arrowhead?
