What a great idea for a thread!
Now, what NSFW doesn't tell here is that he is the ride master guru for hundreds of noob and experienced riders alike. He puts together the best tracks and ride adventures in So-Cal.
On this particular ride I got aced out at work and had to stay late so didn't get to leave the city 'till 7pm for a four hour ride to the first campsite. I'm old and don't see so well at night so it was a real adventure to cover a couple of hundred miles after dark. The 20 miles of dirt road into camp in the dark I made about 35 miles an hour. The next day in the daylight 65 was no problem. What a contrast. Some of the peeps were still up when I got there and I got the kings welcome. A beautiful night on the plains.
I just got a new bike and this trip was the maiden voyage. What a trip indeed.
Carrizo Plain National Monument was our first stop.
