You should write all your emergency information on the bottom of your skid plate

The wee jumps quite well, now landing is a different story

Moe.Ron, don't you know you are supposed to pick soft places to land? I chose a nice soft silt bed or two to land in after crossing hunter mountain. As far as that hill to Darwin I made it almost to the top before I chose the wrong line and stalled the bike. I knew those rocks were hard and begged for someone with longer legs and stronger arms to ride my bike through the few hundred yards of nasty rock garden. It sounds like you fell into the rock garden I wimped out of riding through. Darwin was worth the effort to get to though.

I'm glad you and your bike are OK for the most part and I hope even though you got banged up that you had a good time.

Moe.ron goes to Death Valley

After months of prep, riding, practicing, farkeling, talking it over, himming and hawing we were headed to Death Valley



I was sick with some nasty crud for the weeks prior, walking pneumonia the doc said Gave me a pack of strong anti-biotics and I felt much better, but the morning of our ride out to DV I was feeling quite fucked up Seeing double, feeling pukey in my helmet, hugging the white line of the slow lane for the first 50 miles I never do that





A stop somewhere on Antelope Highway to thrown down some granola bars and sip a blue monster...a quick call to the wife and we are off again...feeling better, but still sickly







Running fast through Red Rock Canyon State Park

After 250 quick paced miles we made it into Death Valley and straight to Panamint Springs Resort for the big nOOb Ralley

We lucked out being neighbors with the legendary Lost Rider Clan I've admired their postings from the beginning, great to finally meet ya Finn and Nancy

Off to explore

mornin



Friday morning we hooked with Lost Rider for nOOb friendly ride to Darwin, Olancha Dunes OHV, lunch in Ridge Crest, Trona Pinnacles, Ballarat and home....that was the plan

Mornin Muster









First stop..Darwin...the jeep trail leading there was a good wake up work out, especially on a big bike..loose rock, sorta steep climb. Momentom and line selection were your friend for sure. Lookin where I wanted to end up instead of where I was going or worse yet, where I didn't want to be worked for me too...I stood the whole way too, way more control over the big bike this way.

Riders were helping riders, one big team getting through the tricky spots ..lots of experience and lots of nOObs

This guy stole Nancy's bike for a bit


Then Finn tried to steal Moe ron's bike?! Look at him trying to pull him off balance
