I was quite happy when moe.ron said he would take on some dirt roads with me, originally I was under the impression this would be an all hard ball ride. I was also a bit nervous with my choice of Bates Canyon to Sierra Madre. I knew the road had some washed out sections and some loose, big rocks. Guess I figured we had done enough super simple dirt riding that a little challenge was called for.



Onward and Upward we go!



moe.ron rode brilliantly and the road was no problemo, perhaps he is ready for more difficult stuff after all

Coming down is better than going up in some respects...the view for one is killer



The speed on the other hand is little bit harder to control

The visor at the bottom of the videos is pretty cool.

Packing for another trip



Short little stabs out into the wonderlands around me. Usually within a few hundred miles and a couple nights.

This one would be to Joshua Tree National Park, solo.
