Ah I see. That makes sense and why no one at camp knew who it was. Glad no one was hurt.

Friday I went out on my own, and by coincidence meet up with George, Charlie, and Jeff. we split from a larger group at the furnace creek visitors center and rode artists drive, over to Rhyolite, Titus canyon, and back to PSR. Jeff got the Vstrom properly initiated in Titus.
Saturday I went out with George and Charlie. the 3 of us, first time to DV, we had a torn visitors center map, extra gas for the KTM, and Georges GPS to help us find south pass, hunter mtn, teakettle, racetrack and lippencot.

I ate a lot of Charlies dust from the KTM. I think it was his way of saying "thanks" for the 200 miles of asphalt the day before. George had his big boy pants on as he took the beautiful GSA down lippencot. He may have lost his starbucks card along the way.........the last thing I saw as we exited lippencot was Georges 1 finger salute to what he left behind.

Saturday night BBQ was the bomb, and I took some cool swag at the Raffle. Everyone was cool, only found 1 KLR hater. My Ricor intimators just showed up, and I scored a Kenda big block from jimmy, so next year...."it's on".

thanks Joel & co.

Pickup fork springs for your weight and load to go with the Ricor valves. They make a great combo. Give the guys at Sonic a call.

I had the .54. You'd probably need the .56.

Are those progressives? I need to do fork seals (my LH fork probably had no damping at all judging by the oil slick on the trailer) and might as well swap springs when I do.

What makes this such a great ride is that everybody is so accepting, accommodating, and welcoming. We could all just go to DV by ourselves, but as a group it's much more fun.
Thanks again to all. Next year stop by the mobile man cave for refreshments.

DV NOOBS 9 in the books. Had another great weekend seeing lots of familiar faces but even more new ones. Seemed like half of this years participants were from No Cal. Those guys that rode down sure had a "hella' ride back. Must say this year's grub was the best yet. The BBQ on Sat was insane but the burgers Thurs were pretty good too.

Friday's ride was the epic sight seeing tour of the big spots that are easy to get to. Rob (FZcruzer) organized a great noob ride that I had offered to sweep. The ride pulled a good mix of guys on a mix of bikes (990, GS 800, 650, stroms, etc) looking to get out and see Death Valley.

The group ready to roll on Saline Valley Rd.



First stop, Boxcar cabin ... Rob's daughter riding 2 up ended up being our group mascot, she was game for anything.



Pulling out from Boxcar Cabin towards Hunter Mnt.



One of the thousands of views ... looking back into Pannamint Valley





Heading down from Hunter







One the more scenic areas, on the way into Hidden Valley







Half of our noob flock was falling behind a little bit so I rode out in front of some of the guys to get a couple shots of them rolling through Hidden Valley

















We successfully got everyone to Teakettle Junction with only 2 minor spills





From there it was off to the Race Track and lots and lots of washboard riding. The guys quickly learned to get up on the side of road where the softer sand was covering the washboard. Once at the Race Track, more amazing vistas





One of the noobs, Stoke, getting an up close study of the racing rocks





From the Race Track we all headed off for Urahebe Crater, as always, the wind was howling up there.



We were running a bit late after the crater and the plan to head to Scotty's Castle was dumped due to road paving and most of the crew were pretty tired after a long day of riding. Titus Canyon was still on the day's agenda. Rob led most of the group back to camp from the turnoff to Beaty and Titus. I led speedygee68 and shooby out to Titus to close out our day.

First a stop in Ryolite .. my favorite piece of art at the museum



shooby getting proof of the 30' tall naked blonde



The ride out to the beginning of Titus was pretty dusty and there were lots of SUV's slogging along but once we got to the crest ... it's always, WOW!



The late afternoon light was great







shooby cruising in on his GS800





speedygee on the 990 Dakar





A nice collection of big Adventure Bikes



Aaron and I for a selfie ending a great day
