No, its a 950. In you original post at the beginning of the ride report you had me listed as being on a 690...I can only dream of having a 690 someday.

So you're saying that there is still plenty life left in this one. Got it.

Here's are the 3 vids I've been able to upload.

This one is coming down that hill where we were gathered at the bottom.




In this one I'm following Reidy, AZRedline and 4Play as we harmoniously snake through the trails.




And here is one of me when I was trying to gtfo of the desert by myself. I don't know if it comes across in the video but it sure is clear to me, by the lines that I was taking, that I was desperate. At the end of the vid (it was over a 20 min. video before I pruned it) you can see the one and only time I took a spill on this whole trip. It's funny because as I was saying before, I didn't want the bike to shut off on me so I never let off the gas even though I was on the ground. You'll notice I had a death grip on the bars while I was on the ground. I wish the sound would have been captured better in the vids but I had the wrong setting set on the gopro.

May I suggest we not detail that on a public forum.

Suffice it to say one agency had called another agency regarding our (alleged) passing. We found out about it and plan to stay out of first agencies jurisdiction for a while...er, forever.

This is not us but we are pretty sure we were at least this high on the big jump we described earlier. Knarly Dude.

Maybe AZRedline can verify. He was the one that saw it in his mirror. What you say Steve?

Doesnt seem fair, after all the tires you helped change over the weekend, and none of us were there to help change yours. We owe you Mil !

That's about right! My angle was different but I definitely saw blue sky!

Disclaimer: Said incident took place on a closed course rather than a public road! No animals, farm or wild, were harmed, no natural resources were wasted and no way am I gonna be that close in front of you at the next jump opportunity!

the first jump start for Julio,s bike. getting warmed up for the cables later that would give the bike a new charge via body current. I hear it only worked when grabing the front brake. sorry Julio.

I think Monti went through four tubes on one fix hear. at least we had the helicopter to keep us entertained. at this point four riders are with chase truck. 1 rider fixing flat somewhere else by himself. and five other riders running around the desert on there phones lost and looking for each other. this was right after we went through border checkpoint and got news of some kind of detainment. good thing they were not talking about us. but a group of motorcycle riders instead. bad boy bad boys what you gonna do.
