    NSFW TO NSF....:clap

    thanks jeff.


    i plan to do a saturday ride to goler, mengle and as far as to the cabin to meet larry. anyone able to sweep? intermediate pace with opportunities to take pics.

    riders joining can continue on beyond the cabins and all the way to west side road (fun road) and to furnace creek. meantime, once i meet larry, we will proceed west (reverse route) and towards ballarat. sorry, but i have to be back in camp before 5pm.

    if you haven't done this route, it's one of the popular favorites. lots of things to see, some challenges and varying terrains.

    DV is experiencing some rain now...this is going to be interesting.

    thanks rob....love to have you in the kitchen.

    probably we can do 6 or 8 riders, excluding the 2 of us. minimum fuel range @ 160 miles. if we can talk to rocky at ballarat to hold 12 gals for us, that will be perfect.

    Finn is camped at Striped Butte tonight. He went over the Escape Route, Goler, and Mengal today so we will have a first hand report.

    He's also doing some touring in the area so since the storm is moving out the condition report will be up to date.

    Well, I broke my leg. And I wasn't even riding!
    I was rolling the bike up the ramp into the van to drive up to ride in the desert and I was having a hard time with the last oomph over the lip so I did what I did last time, carefully snuck around to the front. This time instead of pulling in the bike I got almost to the front and I think the front wheel turned right and that caused the bike to start going over. I tried to save it :huh and the next thing I knew I heard this horrible noise as my right knee went SIDEWAYS.....

    Finished dropping the bike to end up laying in the back of the van thinking I had torn an acl and dislocated my knee. After my neighbors got my bike put away, locked up my house and then called for an ambulance. Got xrayed at the er and my tibia is broken in 2 places right below my knee.:puke1

    I'm laying here with ice feeling very sorry for myself. Getting taken care of by friends and my uncle. Off to Kaiser in Riverside for Otho appt and to see if surgery is in the cards.

    I am sooooooo going to miss riding with you all and meeting new people from the forum.

    Ride on folks and have a great time!:D
