Idahosam Needed a winter break to Death Valley

Well I am finally getting around to throwing up some of February's little get away.

We had a particularly gloomy and gray cold winter this year, so a few of us guys whom happen to have free time decided to go play in Death Valley, cause.... just cause...... we can.

I have pondered over and over some witty narrative and story line to accompany and well, what can I add that hasn't already be said about DV.

Nothing, so in lieu I decided to present a Montage instead.


Part 1 Highlights of Death Valley and a big thinks to the Wan's and Steep $ Rocky for planting the seed.




I am working on Part II


It felt really good to get out of the cold.


Oh and you never know who you'll run into down there

Good to know I'm not the only one who thought this past winter (It is past, yes?) in Idaho was a particularly bleak one. And you live in the tropical part!

Now common, ID.S., break time is over ...

Dath Valley Sam

Hi Sam.
I'm totally jealous that you got some riding in this winter.
I didn't.

But I did get a lot of maintenance done on the KTM's.
- New steering head and swing arm bearings. (SE)
- New crankcase breather ventilated to atmosphere. (ADV)
- New Samco silicone cooling system hoses. (ADV)
- Oil change and Air filter cleaning on both bikes.

So NOW it's time to RIDE!
Want to try and put a ride together this summer?
Q~

Update: I just started watching all your other videos and it looks like I'm not going to get much work done today...

I think it was some music from Chips. Maybe the next installment will include some kind of big tanker truck crash footage. Or maybe a couple of cars will jump thru a truck full of explosives!

Nice video Idahosam! Looking good.

Hi'ya littlewan . I figured you guys were out playing. I am going out today myself to take advantage of the sun.

Well as for the music your close, same artist here's the information you may seek.

Part II will have to wait for a bit as I'm going riding.

I will be in California this summer, moving my daughter to LA, so I'll be querying you on good back roads to go visit her in the future.

Later gotta go ................
