Thanks. I guess I was too busy hanging the back end to notice how smooth you were. I had the benefit of a fresh D908RR. I think you were using Pirelli Scorpion A/T tires.

I am envious of everyone saying how smooth you are. That is a high compliment. I guess I am more of a bull in a china shop type guy.

Thanks, but Ernie was being kind, I see myself as frantic, and jerky.

Take the compliments. Ernie wasn't the only one who said you were smooth.

Don't worry boys... I work with a bunch of girls and you ain't got nothing on our conversations...

Anyhoo back to Hells.... Took a few short, local rides on Thursday/Saturday and these are some of the things I saw:

Between Lostine and Enterprise

the other direction... gotta take BOTH sides!






Love these little babies... so cute when they play... Dark one bit the other:


Don't wanna play no more... you're mean!

Kiss and make up... let's play



Ya, that's about it from my repertoire !

Enjoyed this rally very much, accomplished a goal, met some cool people, interesting conversations (Fey/Jim/Leif)

GOOD TIMES and GREAT MEMORIES



...over and out.

Just screwing around on the way home, I setup the camera and took a little nap.

That's just your 950, doing it's "thing".

I follow you on gravel or worse, and you brake less, accelerate with less "enthusiasm", and yet.....
...you have a noticeably higher average speed than I.
On street oriented DS Scorpions you are, yet .
I can't catch you, when I want to try hard to catch you.
My non-brass balls won't let me catch you

As I said at the gas stop in Ass-town,
I look forward to riding like you, and with you, for the next 20-ish years,
and I can only hope to be as good as you someday

Maybe when you're 80-something,.... I'll get to PASS you

You have a lot of patients to stop mid journey and shoot a timelapse! Nicely done

Once I headed out of Enterprise it was non stop to Hooterville and I still managed an 8 hour day in the saddle. I really enjoy shooting TL's as well but I hate waiting around for'em to shoot.

That is where the nap comes in, 25 minutes and you feel like a million bucks.
