Far out - it looks like you had a great time! You've definitely made me put the park on my 'must-ride-one-day' list

I just noticed the forks on your bike, Chris.

In this photo, it looks, at first, like it's got USD's on it, and I was writing for details wondering which ones they were, whether you swapped them yourself, etc.
BUT, after a closer look while I was writing this message, it looks now like it's reflective tape? great illusion!

Pack it up, get home, wash up, recover on Sunday, have a long work week ahead of me



back out on the long, lonely roads





dumped the fuel I was carrying to get me into Ridgecrest, fuel there would get the rest of the way home

a stop for some much needed chain maintenance



again it was massive winds from Mojave until LA..

ahhhh Welcome back to "Civilization"





1062 miles in 3 days...500 of that transit to and from, 562 around DV

You done good Wee...you done good



The End...thanks for coming along! Until next time...ride fast and take chances

The Park puts this out every morning. Temps aren't too bad right now, but lots of torrential rains have screwed up (or made more interesting) lots of the back country roads.

Would I go right now? Fuck yeah

Orange Font is all I can afford
