I'll be by around 8:30 am. If'n I ain't there by 8:45 I'm not making it. Also, I'm stuck with the KLR tomorrow so no real trail riding for me.

If you guys go off in search of sand, good luck. I'll be hitting some hardpack.

You guys need proper sand bikes. And unbreakable shift levers.

If I'm riding it nothing is unbreakable. It was good meeting you, sorry we didn't get to ride.

Pictures

So myself and Juno met up in Jupiter on Friday afternoon and added his bike to the bed of my gas guzzlin Ford and proceeded a couple hundred miles North, Kibo rode up on his GS800 and was already set up when we arrived.

We collected firewood and then went for a quick evening ride with only a couple spills, and had a fine dinner at one of the local establishments. DirtSailor made it sometime during the night and we arose to a shiny, touratech covered GSA in our camp which everyone carefully admired before it got dirty.






First breather on Saturday Morning. This is the area where Kibo allowed me to ride his GS800, that is a sweet machine and despite the extra weight I would take it anywhere that I take my KLR. Thanks Kibo!



As we were leaving our lunch stop we met Travis on a DR650, he led dirtsailor and myself through some nice trails. The others opted to find a watering hole and relax during the hot afternoon.



Breaking Camp on Sunday Morning.


EX250Mike Showed up at the campground and we decided to hit a few trails. As we pull out of the campsite I miss a shift and then realize that my shift lever is badly bent, it was actually broken.

But it broke leaving camp instead of way back in the woods

Dang that works? Wish you had told me before I ordered a moose shifter to replace it

Poor Mishka got ripped on all weekend. I was outnumbered by people riding those fancy European bikes.
