Talking See you guys there!

I will meet you guys at the truckstop at 9:30am. I am going to throw the bike in the bed of the truck and unload there. I got the bike essentially done today and took it for a quick spin to get gas. Boy those stock knobbies are soft! Only road about 6 miles and it wore the nipples off the tire! Anyway, see y'all tomorrow.

Once again I'd extend my thanks for allowing me to accompany you all on this, my first off road experience in Louisiana. You guys were great and although I feel I held you back, you all were very gracious and helpful. Here are some of the photos I took.
Our meet near St Francisville, LA..


Besides the usual meet and greet, I found the bikes very interesting and intimidating.

This bike was unusual and extremely nice and very effective. Enduro Rdr apparently is a very good mechanic and builder.


Motor ray brought a brand new WR450F out to play. Only had 7 or 8 mile on the speedo!!


I met with Dirty Sanchez in Baton Rouge and got my first in person look at the KTM 690R which was extremely nice. It sounded and proved to be fast and very effective in all road conditions. To be sure I was very impressed.

Then there was me and my old DL, almost 50,000 miles and still chugging along.....
I soon learned that my last few months had not done my technique very well...I felt like a virgin at the prom!! The variety of different soils and road surfaces soon had me thinking I needed to get back and start practicing.
But sooooo much fun!!!!


Altho the thick gravel made me slow down, the sand really had me going... every which way!!!


By lunchtime we were in Woodville, MS and I needed a bit of food. The companionship and conversations were awesome!

But like all good days, the time was getting short so we all split up with the idea that we would all do it again soon.

Deal! Is it wrong to covet machines with two spark plugs?

Another fine day with some fine friends, and awesome weather.

Yup great weather! Dirt was dry and dusty!

How dusty? take a look:



After reviewing I was surprised how well the microphone on the GoPro was able to pickup the talking while riding!
Kevin and I were using a pair of Scala Rider G4 to talk while we ride - I have to say having the ability to communicate with another rider just adds another level of enjoyment to riding. I strongly recommend those to others!
I think the newer G9 may be improved performance? But it has both boom and wired microphones in same kit.
We have a second pair of G4 and were able to have comunications with 4 riders together on our last Arkansas trip.
I think the G9 says it will allow you to connect up to 8 other riders, (hmmm I guess G9 means 9 riders total Doh!)

I'll post up some more pics after i get them off camera and phone together in one place.

Ok time to start thinking about next ride!

Somehow Glenn managed to stay out of the camera's eye

Cracker - Down!

Finally got around to unloading the GPS from the D/S ride Nov 25th:
It was fun riding with you guys - I'm looking forward to the next time we can do it!

Ray - did you get that Super Tenere home yet? Now we can log some long ride miles

Hopefully it'll cool off a bit by Saturday.

IF we make it through to the other side.
