Rick is an impressive rider if he can just keep air in his tires and his wheels remain true.
Aw shucks, I'm going to give you about 30 more posts to quit that talk.

(My ego needs to get a copy of any frisky S10 shots you may have.)

I'm up at the lake for the weekend.....I think a quad wheelie is about as good as it's gonna git.
I'll haul bikes next trip up.

Well, it's all true. You really impressed me during that trip.

I kept thinking, "Judas, for a guy with an AARP card, he can really ball that jack."


Anyway, have fun at the lake.

My nephew's viewing is today and the funeral tomorrow. So I got that stuff going for me, which is nice. I still have to put together a slideshow for him--one of the many days I'm happy to have a Mac.

Drove the family back from Vegas last night (spent part of spring break down there with in-laws) and didn't get into Bountiful until 12:30am and then mother nature took a dump on us. Living the dream . . .

Speaking of Rick and Baja, he took this picture of me. I almost look like I know what I'm doing.

Looking at this chart posted a few pages back pavement shouldn't be muddy.

I took off on the Rhino to play in the Sweetwater hills today, blue skies but cold. Half hour later
I'm in a wind driven blizzard. Damn that was cold!

I doubt that took much arm twisting.

Anyone looking for an XR650R? With my new Super Tenere I am looking to sell the 650 and get a 450 or small bike. It runs great with a lot of extras on it. I want to sell it fast to make room for the new bike.

I have a WR250X I am probably going to sell or trade in too.

Any one try out a 350 EXC-F? I am thinking of that or plating a WR450F.

Took a quick 4 day solo trip to the Moab area. Got in about 450 miles of riding of various sorts. Decided to experiment with the timed photo option on my Go Pro. Shot the White Rim every ten seconds and here is the result, a crash (failure to pay attention) a user error and the battery dying prevented getting the whole thing, but here is three quarters of it condensed into nine minutes...

I've got an electric staple gun you can barrow. I probably even have some 3/16" staples. Give me a call. Eight oh one, five five eight, two six four three.

I've got an old school manual staple shooter I've used for seats in the past.

Trust Todd-squad to have the most Gizmoishus item you could own.

But they have been putting that dirt treatment shit on in salt gulch so its pretty hard, about like pavement.
I think its some kind of chloride mix.
If its wet it sticks to your bike and can leave marks. It sucks.
