    I went up the hill and immediately turned north to fall in behind you all on the dirt road. Less than a minute later the bike stalled and the kicker wouldn't turn the engine over. I rolled it in gear, kicked it, and it started, only to die a moment later. Then the kicker was then stuck for good. I'll have to tear it apart.

    Bummer about your bike. Any further thoughts on what happened?
    It was good to meet the rest of you guys, as brief as it was. Hopefully we can try it again sometime.
    So, plusone, what did you think of the desert?

    Patrick Smage is out at San Ysidro today. If you want to see the current National Trials Champ ride, the upper classes will be riding from about 1:00-4:00. :clap

    I hear that most sections are pretty close to the pits too.

    Thanks everybody for taking me out Saturday. It was a good ride with lots of different terrain. Star Wars Canyon, the ridge tops and the little technical bits in the rocks were my favorites. There was of course plenty of sand and whoops on the way back, I was warned... Let's do it again:freaky
