Videos from Day 3

Now some videos from Day 3:

This is early in the morning. We just left Indian Hallow CG and decided to keep Joel in the middle of the group to prevent him getting lost, or I should say prevent his GPS die on him and get him to wrong places...




This one is a video at Point Sublime Vista. Amazing 300 degree view of Grand Canyon.




And these are famous forest trail.




I go down at the end of this one right when I catch up with Browneye. I see him at the end of the sand and loose concentration.

There were more miles out there than I had remembered. Seems like we just cruised through the forest for hours.
Maybe I'll go back in the fall.

Just in...
When we got to Lees Ferry it had been 3 full days of riding in dust and heat. We were tired and very very dirty. We needed a bath really bad. So we decided to go and take a dip into the cold Colorado River. It was cold indeed. I couldn't go in, just waist down and washed my hair. But someone didn't care about freezing cold water, or flyfishing strangers or even paparazzi...

day3 rr

sleeping in the ditch got rid of my problem falling off my bed...



morning temp



you got to love those jetboils






on our way out of camp



regrouping - the new word for waiting...



yeah, we're on our way to point sublime












emergency stop; someone's luggage was missing



john was glad to be reunited with his dufflel bag






at the end of point sublime is a cul-de-sac to park the bikes



there's also a vip parking spot



paul and a little piece of the gc






there ain't any better way to get to this place than riding with the real PPs.

The river was cold, but getting clean was worth it, especially after busting my ass for 2 days of picking up KTMs.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOh, i thought that was a bear!!! The funny thing is, I was looking for my board shorts forever complaining to Tim, who ended up being the wrong guy to complain to about not having swim attire- but he didn't say a fucking thing. Just waited patiently and then cruised down to the river with me when I decided I'd just wash off what I could. We find Ersin, Rich, Frank (i think), and couple fly fishermen down at the river. I find a nice rock, get my balance and start washing up.... seconds later Tim is buck ass naked wading into the water (I'm laughing out loud as I write this) like he does it every weekend. I just start busting up, realizing he sat there and listened to me whine about not having my board shorts. Hahahaha, aw man, Tim, you're a character. Consequently, we had the entire stretch of river (within view of this exceptional male specimen) to ourselves. Our guys were gone. The fishermen bolted. It was hilarious. Cheers Tim.

The water felt great. Not nearly as cold as I thought it'd be, but the whole trip actually went a lot better than I thought it would! I guess there were a lot of orange bikes on the ground... That first day was the most hiking I've ever done on a motorcycle trip, but somehow it was all absolutely enjoyable. That's a lot of work trekking up and down steep, rocky roads in full gear at high elevation. And I loved it. Strange.

Tim was a champion up there. Always upbeat, positive, on to the next situation helping the next fallen ktm. I got your number Tim! .....



...figuratively speaking, or I would have been rockin like a hurricane in Reno. It was cool spending an extended amount of time with you guys-- mostly guys I had ridden with before, but this trip was waaaaaaaaaay different. An awesome, free, wide-open kind of different. I like doing my own thing most of the time, but I definitely see the value in traveling with a group of guys like this. It'll be interesting to see you guys later and see what kinds of stories will be told from these rides. Alright, enough of that. Damn it Brownie you're starting to rub off on me!


My video is being sorted and labeled for editing.......
