Read them all.....

Hi Dave,

I think I've read all of your RR's and have really enjoyed everything that I've read. Your photos are a real treat too. Thanks for taking an old man to places I'll never make it to on my own bikes!

It is an awesome view from there, that's for sure!!!
Hey Rob! I watched all 4 of your Lippencott Grade VIDEOS again last night to re-live that ride. Great Videos! I got scared all over again. I made the mistake of letting the wife watch Lippencott Grade 3. She cussed me out and declared I'll never get to leave the house again!

If you guys haven't seen Larryboy's Videos they start on this page of his RR: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...=calls&page=20

Don't let your mother see them.

Lippencott (Continued)

Ahem... Where were we? Dangling off the side of the mountains?










The Yamaha pitches down the next grade.





I round the corner to an unexpected obstacle and must rein the big beast in on the slippery slope.










I see a mine entrance!





Just when you think





All the fun is over





Lippencott Road





throws more rocks at you!




Saline Valley Road

Great pics and ride report Dave... All in my backyard too, fantastic!

A lot of folks don't realize what an amazing place the desert can be.

Saline Valley Road

That Yamaha has a beautiful patina, huh?














I rounded one corner and saw a dip ahead just like the thousands before. I didn't realized it was a water crossing until I was splashing across. Surprise! I whipped out the camera just in time to catch the Yamaha taking a bath.




Willi snapped some shots of me getting soaked from head to toe in this crossing. Brisk! I haven't heard from Willi yet, but I hope to have the pics he shot someday.



















The snow is almost gone.








The Bikes Admire the View













I just had to document the morning's top speed from a straight section of Saline Valley Road just before it turned to asphalt. Guess I'd better pull over a wait for the Yamaha. 78 MPH on DV Dirt!









Blue Yammy




Big Grin
