    Falling is easy! Picking up the bike is the hard part for me.

    I wanted to thank Eloy for leading the B+ group. He did an excellent job keeping 17 people together. I had a blast trying to keep up with All the KTM's in the front of the group. By the way, Eloy carries an entire spare KTM bike in his vest:)

    Found this skull during a pee stop and it stayed on my dash the last 25 miles of Saturdays ride :norton

    Thanks to Chicken and Australian Pete, this has historically been the Sand Flea camp - right by the shitter!

    Look at all those Colemanvan fans. They all will agree that the van is much cooler than the operator. And yes the Premium Dirt bag travels with remote controlled candles and quality craft suds.

    I shot this before going to bed and by bed I mean passing out 38' out and 67' in thanks to the mini heater. It read 32' as an outside low in the morning but some reported 28'!!!:vardy

    We used these old tires as a jack stand (along with the kickstand) for a front tire flat fix.
    Always cool to see the group kick in to help a fellow rider - sorry we were not as sorted on Fridays rider.

    Good to meet you guys. I've got to get a better camping system worked out and give it another go.

    At least I got to ride the new-to-me-DRZ a bit.

    Looking forward to a do-over.

    Do you mind if I steal this pic of my flat front tire. And if you could tell me who was riding the KTM 6 days enduro and the guy in the Starline long sleeve shirt. I owe them for the bandana and the used good tube. Also owe Eloy for the air pump...and everyone else a beer for waiting on me and loaning tools!
