My pansyass cant handle cold so am hotelin if weather looks bad. I have a volunteer to haul camp gear but now hes telling me 30% chance he cant make it. Just checkin to see how dependent we are.....I assume we can handle it if he bails.

Added another trip to my "Backyard Trek's, Day Trippin link.
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=889018
Another day... Weather is nice here for this time of year so... I'm ride'n every chance I get.
Trailered to Hwy 71 & headed towards Alamo... Some exploration on the way but normal route back. Still working with the GoPro... Used it exclusively on still shots, sometimes on 30 second intervals other time on every 5 seconds. A few shots from my other cameras also.
Meeter says 93 miles with average speed of 23mph, although the way back was fast so the exploration was really slow. Max speed was 56 on the Alamo/Wickenburg road, just graded and really nice .

Big thank you to Clay and Eddie for getting my bike back to town after my spill last Sunday! Clay was kind enough to drag the big out to the east side today and park it in my garage. You guys rock! I have the best time hanging with my fellow inmates. Counting the days till I get to ride again, hopefully in time for dual sport daze!
Thanks fellas!
Jeff

Well, two more weeks until doc says I can ride the big boy rides. Unfortunately boss says no time off and probably overtimed will b scheduled starting next month. And I have two ride weekend requests in!!!!
Anybody know of someone looking to hire an ambitious, intelligent, and good looking employee?? Maybe I can do yardwork for that guy full time once he gets hired.

Whoooa... Damn quiet here. I'm gone for a few days and everyone moves. No one left on the West Side?

Anyway I was caught in Phx on Sunday with a couple hours to kill. Made a quick spin through the International Motorcycle exhibit at the University of Phx. Stadium. There were several DS bikes in the parking area perhaps some of the ADV crew was there.
Really enjoyed seeing the full BMW GS line. KLR's in every color. Yamaha & Suzuki had there DS on display. Some of the old classic bikes were there also. As well as some gear vendors.
Then I had to hit Cabela's for some fishing/boating stuff. These warm days will really have the Bass & Crappie excited.

Did I look like an escaped convict? Getting away as fast as possible? Probly me.
I think I just seen your friend on the Dakar ride by. I always presume someone by their ride around here because I cant imagine more than one of anything in Wicky. Especially not a Dakar. What was his name?

I was there with the family. I think we got there about 10:30 and left a little after the 1:00 stunt show. My boys especially enjoyed all the crazy tricks they were doing. I kept telling 'em... sheesh I do half that stuff on my KLR! We also stood in line several times for the Progressive slot car track race.

A favor please...

Heya guys, do me a favor would ya? Post a comment to our video. My boys (especially the 11 year old) are chomping at the bit waiting for fellow riders to comment and so far only Eric has and they are a bit disappointed. You don't even have to watch the video if'n you don't wanna... just give 'em a positive comment!
I'd sure appreciate it. Thanks guys!

His name is John, can't remember what color his helmet is!
Yes, his is the only Dakar in the area I know of.
