    hey razr, good job for leading the rest of the guys to newcomb's and giving them a taste of a night ride......:eek1 . we waited as much as we can, but good we ran onto you guys as we were heading back to the camp.

    just wondering if septic every made it home last night. last time i saw him was with tim as they were heading south on the 15. clayton lead us to some brand new trails for me. basically, we came up from the north side and riding down from the front side, which was cool.

    i post the pics of the weekend ride when i get home this afternoon.

    We made it back okay. We thought about heading up Indian truck trail and over CNF, but the heat drained us too much, we took Ortega. Showered, ate, and passed out.

    not at all at Horse Flats, but if someone hadn't already got space for us at Holcomb Valley, we'd have been SOL

    we got started late, so we didn't make the meeting at the 7-11, so we opted to meet RAZR at the Shell on ACH at 6:00 or so, RAZR got a pic........


    it was me on the DRZ, my son on the TW, & sospelotudo & his wife 2up on a big new KTM.......RAZR had talked to tbarstow & told him we'd wait, so we die, till 7:00....& then cuz RAZR just came out for the Friday night portion of the festivities & wanted to do Lynx, that's what we did.......

    I had a little trouble at the last bit of Lynx

    [​IMG]

    (I know RAZR has more pix)

    that & my general slowness delayed us to the point that we arrived at Newcomb's too late for dinner, somewhat to the worriement of my daughter. who was waiting for us there. (Fortunately, she had ordered us some dinner, so we didn't have to go to bed hungry)

    Most distressing, after i fell, I lost most of my rear braking, so I did Pacifico in the dark with almost no brake........

    I need to hugely thank schlim66, & his friend, who happened to be at Newcomb's for repairing the fitting & replacing my brake fluid, so I could continueon the weekend's adventure

    Following Sospelotudo and Sopascat on Cleghorn. Its not too dusty because its hard packed.

    Right about the 4:15 mark I eat it. Thank to Sospelotudo for helping me extract my bike from the chapparral and haul it back up to the trail.
