TONY "Remember last week with the napping DRZ? Well, It's like yawning....Chad and Darin getting up from thier naps. Yes the bike are damaged!"

When I nap, Chad naps, we both nap, it's only a matter of time.....
The ONLY thing that save the side of my nice new orange tank from any damage was the 14mm clear film I applied when the bike was new. The film was torn, and gouged to heck. I peeled it off the next day and applied a new pre-cut sheet --good to go Oh and the forks "appeared" to be tweaked a little, and when we returned back to camp, they popped right back into place when the triple clamps were loosened --thanks Tony for the heads-up

This dam hole was DEEP, I wasn't expecting this...the rear tire popped up about 2 feet when the front tire fell in. This bike doesn't need to go swimming, I already know they float, well my 01 did anyway. thanks for the moment of truth photo Tony

That hill is still pissing me off!!!

Damn 525lb bike.......oh yeah and dry clutch.(Smelly & Smokey) Are they supposed to smoke?
I will admit that was a hell of a hill and if I would have been closer to home I probably would have tried the steep run again. But now I will go down as not being able to climb that damn hill..I have been humbled, for now!


Great pics Tony. Next time we need to get people the actual experience. I'll have to mount an old digital on the dash and take film through some of the holes.

Anyone see my post on trying to put a snorkel on the bike, that mud hole was a little close for comfort.

Shite mate, cant you see my mojo in the pic??? Probably not...half is stuck in the root/embankment obscured by the orange rider and the other half is under the bike I havent picked up yet.



slicker than snail snot....



I believe Mr. Stosh said that jungle warfare sucked because of the little monkeys....

Well,

They are lucky that the wire wasnt neck high across the trail. It is better to stay tree line if you must travel this open.

I like the fact that Darin went down behind cover from the downed stuff to cover Chad from sniper sights.

Monkeys are real and they are thiefs !!!

Enjoy

Navy SEAL issued Ka- Bar. While we didn't "gut" them - the butt cap to the noggin sure had them crying.

Yeah well I weigh more than your bike dammit But yeas mad skills, I agree...

That's it! I didn't have my glasses on maybe that's why I couldn't make it up that hill!

And just to set the record straight, the guy on the GS1150 only fell once (outside my hill attemps!) And I can safely say there probably haven't been many 1150 back in much of those places from the response of the other riders that day.
