No problem at all. I was wondering how it went from a carb Issue to hanging Xmas tree lights

I got a really late start @ 2:30pm so I did a shorter/closer loop. From Golden on 14 across Madera rd to San Felipe Casino/I25. Down 25 to 550, to San Ysidro, up 4 into the Jemez to the Caldera, FR36 to Dome Road, to 22, to 16 to I25, then finished on Waldo Road back to 14.

The temp was 65 when I left, 70 in Bernalillo, low of 32 up in the Jemez around 5 pm. I had to ride Dome road in the dark which was good because it allowed me to thaw out my hands I normally avoid riding in the dark but I grossly underestimated the time it would take to do this ride.

Overall I had a good time, Dome road was actually really fun in the dark.

If it's alright I may ride with you guys tomorrow too. I have a nagging shoulder injury that I don't want to make worse by riding trials tomorrow so I might skip the event.

Awesome ride Ron! I've done Dome Rd. in the dark many years ago...fun ride! Glad to see you're still digging the 990!

Ron, I wish I could have joined you as yesterday was an awesome day for a ride, but alas my brother had agreed that yesterday was the day that would be best for him to help me rebuild my motorcycle ramp.

Glad to hear you might be joining in today. Been awhile since we rode together.

Curtis I first injured my shoulder on a Green River ride the weekend before I saw you at San Ysidro. The magura clutch I put on my YZ250 was leaking at the lever plunger so it wasn't disengaging all the way when pulled in with one finger. Running across the desert I came across a rain rut and hit the brakes to check my speed then planned to blip the throttle to wheelie over the rut. Right when I hit my brakes the bike stalled so instead of wheeling the rut with the power on I lawn darted my front wheel right into the near vertical wall of the rut. All the force went right into my shoulder, a day later I had no pain.

The next weekend I rode trials with you guys and did a few drops that were higher and less smooth than I would have like and after riding my shoulder was killing me (not while riding though). Now my shoulder is really painful and difficult to lift things after 2 weeks of rest. I've never had a shoulder injury before but I think I have a problem here

Good luck at the comp today, if you podium please tell everyone you are dedicating your podium to Ron and his shouler recovery, thanks.

Interesting, that is exactly what I was thinking as it was getting dark in the Jemez, the temp said 32, and I couldn't feel my thumb

It's all good Ron! I knew your shoulder was hurting you. Didn't realize it was still sore though. I hope it's nothing serious...maybe some more adventure riding will take care of it!

I think you would have actually liked the Semi sections today...fun with great flow. There was one big drop though that was a jarring down that certainly would not have been good on your shoulder. Hopefully you'll be back in the game in a few weeks...until then, enjoy the 990! Hope someone got some pics of the ride today...

I guess I screwed up with my camera, only got two pictures, one of my face setting up the camera and one of the highway so no luck here .

Good ride, but very dusty. It is super dry right now.

A great ride over incredible country.
I learned many new things about adventure riding to include that this is really not the best track for a Triumph 800 XC.
I see a KTM 690 in the future.
I have a few pictures and some GoPro video to process. I may need to help getting it posted though.

Thanks for hanging out after the tire/tube finally gave up the ghost gents!

Hope everyone made it home to loved ones safe.
