Luckily The Mighty 950 fixed itself. Just needed a little break.
Dave enjoyed the hill
It was getting hot so we found some shade at the Japanese Camp arroyo.
Then up to higher/cooler elevations via The Switchbacks. Dave says," I don't need no Stinking Swithchbacks!"
We rode some more fun stuff after that but all my energy was reserved for riding.
I did document some sampling of the Orange Koolaid.
I think I heard one of them use the term "Goldwing" in his description of the experience.
Different strokes for different folks.
I on the other hand liked the Beta alot. They were both 450s. One in race trim the other more trail oriented in set up. Both Fast. I hope to get a chance to sample them again on some technical terrain. Thanks for riding with me today fellas.
We split up at Pappy & Harriet's and as I rolled over the last saddle and dropped into the valley I live in, I thought to myself
everybody says only a Fool would do a hundred mile loop in the desert in August! And I say to that... "Uhhhh, what's yer point?"
Besides, it's still July.
