    You guys missed FR143 from Patagonia over to Amado. Too bad, but gives you an excuse to go back down there:clap.

    hey charlie, stopped by and got my trailer this a.m. it WAS rather depressing - knowing my desert retreat was coming to an end.
    And, well, dam gone it, its fricken cold up top. And, well, DAM GONE IT, nobody cleared out my road and driveway while i was basking in the desert sun. So, after getting home, I was fortunate enough to run the snow blower for 30 minutes, hook up the snow plow to the truck and push my drive way and road out!!!!!!! @#$$%&* snow

    I wanna retire and ride the desert all winter. brought both bikes back for a little maintenance so they are ready to go for another round of desert abuse.

    Maybe our next ride won't involve 20 degrees f, highs of 45, and snow.

    That was the best 4 days on a moto in awhile, lets dot it again

    I've done the exact same ride except we ventured off into Sonoita for some wine testing. :evil It's beautiful country down there but right now, it's freakin' cold. It's single track season, not 950 WOT season.:deal

    as much as people like to rib on Cycle Gear they sure do an excellent job of getting riders back on the road when in a bind.

    For our next ride we will go to death valley in the summer. It cools off as you get closer to the ocean, right?

    :lol3

    It was fun.

    Thanks Guys,

    Loved the writing, loved the pics. Big-E how's the shoulder coming along? And DOD every time I see your bike I think I need one :bluduh Maybe they actually are nicer than my KLR.

    These reports get me through the tough months. This was yesterday, and yes, I live in Alamosa :lol3
