I have been into the Total Wreak Mine and south on the power line - indeed it does get rough - we turned around - due to the heat of the day - but still a rough road.

Hey guys, I won't be able to make it to DiD tomorrow, I couldn't finish my rack today, and would like to finish it tomorrow so I can take a test ride during the week before Desert Daze.

You guys have fun!

Okay folks - I WILL have a truck to truck things out to Triangle T. If some of y'all need to throw things in the truck, get it to me by Thursday morning.


I'll probably head out around 1ish on Thursday.

Haha, I should but I also want to take a test ride before DD. So, I'll probably ditch school to ride wednesday (or i'll go thursday). Plus I have some evil stuff called homework that I didn't do because I was working on the rack (it's taking 3 times longer then I thought it would).

Bull Springs - Flux Canyon Ride

The weather forecast said 70% POP today, so we rode in the 30% that had no POP .

Storms all around us, except when we stopped for lunch in Patagonia.

Started dry and sunny, finished dry and sunny.

For those who don't mind an extra click, here's some pictures.

Fun Ride

This is more of a car ride report (covering 300yds) so I will just put it here.

Yesterday, at the closed rest area at MM183, I10W, I had a mini side-swipe me, spin, slide off the road, and roll-over.
Shouldn't be too much of an issue, I was in the left lane and he passed on the left before hitting me trying to come back over.
The sad part is, he told the cop I cut him off so I got a ticket for improper lane usage and all he got was a ticket for speeding.
I think the cop was surprised at the incident, he said it was very obvious the guy was still accelerating past me when he hit my car. His young daughter may never want to ride with him again...

So, after a crappy night of sleep and needing to contact insurance people this morning, I decided to skip the ride today

Passing on the left shoulder?

I decided I was just getting hurt to much riding the KTM, so I got a new rig...much more docile. Do you like my new riding gear as well?

sucks you got side swiped man, you missed a good ride. i managed to break my clutch lever completely off while mud racing brian... i was shifting so hard that it snapped off- so then i threw my bike down and jumped off to grab the back of his bike to try and keep him from winning... there are pics from our audience that i'm sure will be posted.
