Erg Chebbi - Morocco, this October

My friend riding the LC8 in a strange way



Sand: 1
Me: 0



My other friend:





Sand is so fun



The LC8 is a natural sand dune climber





Well, it happens to the best of us



Let's dig some sand holes





This is going to give some work to dig out



Me and my friends at the top of a dune



Eat my dust!





What can i say?
Riding in the sand dunes of Erg Chebbi was fantastic, one of the best things i've done with my LC8.
This motorcycle is a real beast and is so easy to ride on the sand. Love it!!!

Crossing this year's Baja 1000 course...



Was luckily invited by Chris Parker to attend a CPR/ Rottweiler shakedown ride in Northern Baja.



Baja Locale



Patron parking at Mike's Sky Rancho, a remote Baja adventure resort.



Lonely beach palapa bar.



View beyond a cold beer.



Sunset over Baja.



Totally stoked to ride the 950 in Baja with Chris and crew!!! Not so stoked grossly overpacking for the wrong terrain... Dooohh.

Ran out of coffee this morning, so I volunteered to go get some....

Ended up above Britannia Mines on the way to forest service road in Squamish - returned 4 hours later. Never did get that coffee....

You are! Come ride through California's Redwood Hwy. I love NZ, but California is a real close second place.

Amazing photo. Belongs on the intro page.

Can you send me a high resolution image. I'd like to make it my desktop at work.

Nice ride Saturday. The bald rear scorpion kind of sucked in the snow. We let a GS and 640 Adventure tag along.

Freak'n things have an appetite for rubber, eh? I'm running the stock tire which isn't too aggressive, & I still don't think I got more than ~3k miles out of it. A spirited pace on the wide open stretches in WY pretty much eliminated the remaining tread.
