I'll let Tex fill in if he wants.

Nice little ~60 mile ride. Even with 8am start it warmed up fast. Very dusty on the ridge roads above Lytle Creek. No sign of yesterday's fire, other than some black patches near the summit of I15. Baldy Mesa is probly off limits for awhile.

See you guys monday

that sucks tex, but good to hear it's just superficial injury (i hope).

if tomorrow is not a good day, let's meet another time. will text you info.

mx boots, body armor, knee pads, etc., you probably have them already.

950 is not quite put back together yet, so i'll be on the 525. You know the routine, so no worries on your big-bike. Or maybe its time for you to dust off the 400?

Anybody else in for tomorrow?
8am at the Sierra Shell station.

I would love to. I haven't ride since KM and last two days I had the worst camping experience of my life with 50+ Argentinean. :( Every couple had a air mattress and the smallest tent was a 5 person one. They had yards and yards of extension cord for spot lights and loud music. :( I don't know if I can ever recover from this trauma. :(
I will try to be there, Shell station at Sierra exit of 15 Fwy, right???

You'd be surprised!

Too bad you missed Southern Utah. It was amazing! Sorry to hear about your bike though.
