Pahrump, NV. West of the town, dry bed lake and plenty of sand dunes.

He was teaching us how to get the front end up and turn the bike around. That was one lesson I didn't learn though...

P.S: I kept it up all the way...
Looks like the crash bars got a little work out too.

I hope some day I get the nerve to push my baby like that.

That's about the time when one uses the center stand and spins it on location.
