Hey Arny(sp) you got the spelling perfect, great riding with you as well.

You were fast on that KRL, and I thought they were slow, I'm not going to believe anything I read on the internet any more

Waiting for the sun to rise on sunday morning


The fog conveniently stayed on the other side of the mountains


Wasn't paying attention yesterday and missed my 65k mile mark

(I've got every 5k since she was 'new')

All packed up and ready to roll


Getting off to a fairly relaxed start ~9am


A quick couple miles up S2 to Oriflamme


Got mixed in with another group in the first sand wash section


Lost track of the guys I was with so adopted the sweep position


This GS8 rider (Ron?) was moving along steady until the dirt turned to marbles

He soon after turned back towards pavement. Did he make it out?

browneye (?) on a cheater bike made it look easy


FuzzyNugs (?) had circled back to check on the holdup ... or maybe he just wanted to ride the marbles again

(My first street legal bike was a KLR250. Lots of fun until I killed it.)

spafxr cleaned it with smooth and steady throttle control


Did my best to keep an eye on the final four until they made it to the top. Ride ahead a bit, then take pics as they worked their way up the grade. In the end, they all made it up without assistance

Looking back down the canyon


There they are


The pillion on the two-up Tiger was a trooper and walked/jogged most of the way up


Very cold and windy hanging out at the switchback, also starting to sprinkle a bit


This rocky section looked intimidating, but I think actually easier than the marbles down below


Just where does this road go?


The BMW Xcountry found a rut and needed Xtraction


FuzzyNugs (?) rounding the last bend and powering to the top


Once everyone was in the clear, I bid farewell and hustled north down Chariot Canyon. Didn't see anyone else the entire way.

Fun road


Chariot Mine


Rainbow over Banner


Nearly 11am by the time I got out to the Hwy78. Looked cold and wet up around Julian. Needed to make tracks towards home anyhow, so turned right towards friendlier skies.

Cool


Skipped S2 and took Grapevine Canyon (again) instead


Turned right up Jasper Trail just before the ranch


Fun, but probly a good thing it had not been used on saturday's route. Tighter, sandier, and a couple washed out climbs.

Made up some time on Hwy79 around to Chihuahua Valley where I pickedup the Cooper-Cienega TT


A blade had been run thru since last I was here (~1yr ago) making for a quick pace


Heading for Anza


Detour thru Terwilliger around the Cahuilla Indian Res


Bautista Canyon on the way to Valle Vista


Skirted around Hemet, then took one last break on Jack Rabbit Trail before 'hopping' on the highway for home

Great shots!!!

Where those the harder sections of Oriflamme? If so I'm totally kicking myself for opting out.

My GPS data for the weekend.



I think my GPS is malfunctioning...no way I hit 96mph, no way, not me.

Nice pics Matt. Thanks for getting one of me...I don't think I have any with me actually riding my bikes! And yeah, I was feeling a bit of sympathy for some of those guys, what with being on my 'cheater' and all. It sure made it easy.

Oroflame Canyon was the best riding track of the entire weekend. Now that's some kind of dualsport route!!

Good times and nice to put names with faces. I haven't found my camera since I got home but once I do I'll add some of the few pics that I took.

Rode with Group #5 and took off early and got to the Hideout for some Chilly and beverages. Had a great group of skilled riders and it was impressive to see guys handling their big bikes in the sand and rocks. Lior came buy us on his BMW flyin through the sand and it was a sight to see...very impressive. Then at the stop at Stagecoach for a few supplies he buys a bundle of wood and straps it onto the side case, and proceeds back into the dirt once again, hehe. (That Garmin Montana also looked like a really nice item)

Caleb gets the hard core award for sleeping on the ground, under a tarp, with a wool blanket.

Btw, that JetBoil is the coolest piece of camping gear I've ever purchased! Thanks to Scott for giving me the first timer schooling on getting it all going.

Note to self, don't forget the tent stakes again.

Back to school

Many thanks to Craig and Blake for coordinating this ride, and also to my Saturday bros for not only schooling me in the dirt but especially to Caleb for being patient with me holding him back as sweep. When he did pass me on his 800gs he was always seen semi-controlled sliding thru the next sandy turn ahead. Pretty impressive. Thanks also to Jeremy for leading our group 4, which included Arny and Mike.

I bailed Saturday afternoon into Blair Valley where I had my camper set up. I felt for all you Butternut tent campers......it was plenty cold and windy to be bagging it. Sunday morning looked mighty stormy looking up in the mountains so I stayed "home" around Blair Valley for the day. I took a run down thru The Narrows and picked up a nice RV sewer hose with all the fittings I had spotted the day before when we rode thru there after Grapevine Canyon. Then I headed up Pinyon Mountain turnoff that is a pretty fun 7 miles of dirt up to The Squeeze. Took a couple of pics and then turned back the way I came. A loop thru Blair Valley and back to camp to catch up on my reading, eating, napping, and wine consumption. Cheers to all. HomemadeBob

Wool blanket?! I saw a flask out there... I hope this was included with your equipment if you're on the ground in a blanket!

My Aunt lives up in Aguanga and I have been contemplating trying some of this route up to her place. How is this section on a big bike? It looks fairly tame, but you've got a fresh perspective.
