That looked like a killer ride. I'm going to do something like that soon. Not sure when or where, but it's coming. Gonna be one of those "going riding" and five days later "that was fun, check out these pics..."

Michael, did you end up racing last weekend?

yep .. I got like 5-6th overall... next year you guys should try these races.. http://www.altavistaevents.com/
A great way to race..they are held out in Cal city cost under 100.00 for a tleast 3 hrs of desert racing on marked course similar to BITD ..plus it can be done in one day by getting up REAL early driving down, racing then back or take two days and pre run the friday before..and a run to randsburg or something... I like em, it keeps me sharp in the prep, butterfly and pace department...

Our ride was a blast but next time no fishing gear or fishing unless its done with and by a guide.. too hard to combine both fishing and hauling ass and I get to fish a hell of a lot anyways !! We may do something toward santa barbara this winterin like february/march. also we are planning to do the Norra Mexican 1000 in May

Very nice, know much of the trails myself, but do not know much of it as well,I really need to get a true dual sport, 525 just is too harsh for this kind of riding.

North Fork area sounds good. I'm in as long as I get off duty tomorrow morning. The Elk snack sticks are ready to go.

Redwave or JP name the place and time.

Hi Josh, sorry to get back to you so late, looks like Chip is out for the ride & I wasn't able to get my bike prep done in time. I may be looking to find some dirt tomorrow though if you are still interested.

Lmao no worries.

No money to spend on goodies, no time to ride, the 530 really is turning into a garage trophy.

One man's garage trophy is another man's daily ride. My DR was a garage trophy, now it's your commuter bike. You might decide to sell the 530 (you'll get a better price in the spring} and use money left over to finish farkling the DR so it handles dirt better (rear shock). Hmmmmmm....
