Rock solid reliable they are.

What the hell did I just do on a whim?

8pm now you see it.


8:30pm now you don't.


But I got cash in my pocket. So I guess I'm looking for a new scooter. Hope to have something before this ride.

HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!! Nah, I just put them on a while back to see what they would be like. TOO much fun! No, the 21 and 18 will be back on by then- I just don't like melting knobs on slab when I can put these on in a few minutes.

I rode this in some mild dirt a few weeks ago and they actually perform quite well, though.

I'm getting my plan together and did some very mild checking.

Wildrose is closed "due to flooding".

I've not checked the other stuff, but most of the guys are better at that than me anyway.

My rough plan right now is to leave as early as I can on Weds (do a couple calls from the road or stop and take them on the way, before I get out of cell reception) and stay at Panamint Springs on Weds. night. From there:

Thursday: I'll do Lippincott and that whole deal to possibly include Reward Mine

Thursday evening: Move camp to Furnace Creek.

Friday: Goler Wash and that whole loop

Saturday: Open to whatever

Sunday: Drone home

Anyone wanna stay at Panamint with me on Weds night and do the ride up there on Thursday?
