Johnny_5, Walley Whirled, tbarstow & me in the Desert

After recently being thoroughly impressed with the riding skills of Arizona inmate fuggy, Johnny_5 came out to California for a ride.





I'm starting to notice an AZ trend. She also is a really good rider as demonstrated here.



She was riding the biggest bike of the group, a 690 with a full Safari tank!

This was Walley Whirld's first ride aboard his brand new 2011 Beta 450RS.



Sorry about your head Wally...too much zoom.





tbarstow was riding his highly modified 650 Beemer,



which was not without a slight problem....or two. But he never stopped smiling.



I was on my NOS '09 Beta 450...duh!

Johnny_5 liked her new Klim helmet so much, she wouldn't take it off.





Flats or no flats, it was a great day for a ride plus it gave us a chance to sample that new Beta.





Come to think of it, Megan had more than one test ride on the Beta.





Good thing Wally knows how to handle a 690.





They switched back for the singletrack.







Tim rockin' the BMW on S-track.





Wally loves the new scoot.





Then all of the sudden Tim's bike sheers a bar mount but he knew what to do.





This made Wally sad





We rode Tim back to the staging area but it was gonna cost him!....GAS





Newly gassed we told Tim we'd meet him at the saloon later, and hit the trail again to enjoy the remaining daylight.






Good ride gang. Thanks for including me. What else can I say but...

'ZONERS ROCK!

Brent - Thank you so much for taking us out in your stomping grounds for an excellent ride!

We did a little more of it today and had a blast!

Looks like a great day!

I'll be looking forward to seeing how that Beta does in "the Event".



How did you manage to pull a break like that Tim?

This has to be #6. I did replace both of them this morning before we went riding again. As much as shearing one off sucks, I think breaking your bars (like Ben did) sucks more than riding with a tie strap holding your bars on. I'm contemplating getting some spacers made that will get rid of the rubber mounts and allow me to run a steering damper below the bars.

Something must be wierd on your set up....as you know you probably have the most sheared off handlebar bolts of all X owners. 13k miles for me and 0.....please please please don't jinx myself.

Ok, back to the report. Talk soon Tim.

Wally loves the new scoot.







Perhaps it is I who should apologize for riding so fast you couldn't capture all of me in the photo.

Yes, Wally loves his new scoot. It's a Beta 520 RS. A bit more umph than the 450. Lots of power everywhere, especially after removing the carb tube plug. Doh.

Johnny5 opted to take out my Trusty Husky TE 610 on Sunday after shearing a couple of subframe bolts on her KTM 690 on Saturday. Much fun was had by all. No photos allowed.

The Beta started coming into it's own on Sunday after a couple of post-ride adjustments. That Beta is one seriously fast bike that's super easy to ride. Me Likey.

Here's some video I shot of our ride with Brent. It take us up through my tire change. I forgot to turn it on when we hit the hard stuff, not to mention that I was concentrating too much to worry about shooting video.




No sound, gotta find some new music to put with it.


FIXED

It 'bout squashed me!
