I realized after 29 years of riding/racing that as much as I love motorcycles I had only tolerated ridding the bikes that I have owned. , untill I bought my GS now I have a hard time getting off the ramp to go to work.

Believe it or not, there was some riding at this years WARPED:
The Cannell Trail
My brother, Lasherman:
We got just a bit beyond where the Garmin showed a Y in the trail, but the snow was too deep to keep going without any knowledge of the trail ahead. There were no tracks in the fresh snow on the ground, so we knew there was nobody up ahead. The DR and XR in the snow on Cannell Trail:
On the way back down:
After riding the Cannell as far as we could we headed up the road and explored some of the offshoots we found. This was at the top of a jeep trail that dead ended at the military crest of the hill. Lasherman is at the bottom of the climb:
Bike porn, the XR showing off her CRF legs:
After several dead end's we found a trail called Rencon. We didn't have much time, but we wanted to explore a bit. We made the first couple climbs but, didn't want to get committed where we couldn't turn around and get out before it got dark, so we headed back.
Rain and snow not withstanding, it was a great time, with some great people! See you next year!

Great pics so far!
Gerg, thanks so much for making this thing happen. I had an absolute blast. Here are a few more pics (if I'm able to link them correctly):
Three of us began the ride. Here are Seavoyage and Bixu as we were getting ready to head out from Hollister.
It was a bit cold coming over Greenhorn on Friday. I was too busy trying to keep it upright (and repeatedly helping Seavoyage pick up his poor tiger) to take any pics in the nasty parts. This is on the Kernville side of the pass, in the sunny bits where the road was finally clear. That was one hell of an adventure!
Once at camp, the fun continued. Here are a bunch of other random pics from the weekend, in no particular order. If I get some time, I may go back in and add captions. Gotta get some work done right now, though.

What a great event
Three cheers to Gerg and everyone who helped to put this together..!!
I got lucky and had a chance to drive up Thursday afternoon and got there with daylight still in the sky.
I quickly set up camp and found alot of friendlies hanging around the keg of Blond Ale (which was excellent..!!)
The rain for me just added to the adventure...This area is always so hot... So it was cool to see the snow on the mountains and falling in camp for a short time friday early afternoon.
Well after the rain stopped on friday we thought we would give in a go..!!
Everything started out great it was paradise
Above 5000 feet the snow started to get pretty thick.
In this picture we were still having fun.
Higher up close to 6000 feet I couldn't even keep my bike on the trail.
and on a trail like cannel we came to a desent that we thought we wouldn't have been able to make it back up.
Snow at this time was between 12" an 24" and every tree you touched would just dump snow on your back.
So we headed back to camp.
Well Saturday we woke up and it was still raining. But we were ready to get our ride on rain or shine.
We hooked up with scott and John and headed for the lower elevations.
Perry's having fun
Hell yes I was having fun..!!!
Lunch break at the Kern river under an overpass. Shit where is the sun I cant feel my fingers or toes...
Later back at camp the sunny finally came out. So Kobe dog " Super Dog" and I went for a walk before dinner.
Kobe even went for a swim..!!
Kobe had a great time..!!
Sunday was post card perfect and so were the trails..!!
So I hooked up again with these to misfits and we hit it hard.
Thanks Scott for leading John and I through just about everything we could get through.
We had it all... Single track.. Steep hill climbs... Steep decents... Rock climbs... and Lots of snow
But all good things do come to an end.
When I got back to camp I realized I was the Last Man standing at the WARPED event...
By far the best day of riding was Sunday....
See ya all next year..!!!
