    I got off early on thur and headed for the high country after noon. Time was short, (dinner downtown at 5:30) and I took the XR600 on the freeway all the way up and back. I got in a good run exploring some previouly traveled roads and some new too.
    Yankee Jim's, shirtail canyon, sugar pine, finning mill and such.
    Lost power to the accessories and had to stop and fix a wire. This caused me to have to run back as fast as I could. I could have gone to dinner in MX gear, but had just enough time to get home, change clothes, change bike, (XS650), and make it without being late!

    ^^^

    Could it be a ADV front page photo candidate?

    Here's a vid from that day...
    There are no action shots!!! There is a tasty blues jam over it!
    Got the camcorder out at different places I stopped.
