She's teal and white. When I get an EXC, I'm going to paint it the same colors :)
that was my first thought....hahaha.
the poor bike without the rack
heading back down from wmrs
up and over that hill will take us back
on silver canyon...the easy part
we were looking for water to play, but not this one
rich found it, the last one on the way down
rich likes it wet and nice air
my best effort got me 6 inches............
the big ktm likes it big
the bmw rider after taking wyman canyon (long but fun way) finally showing up
we rested in the shade by the law's train museum
bob and ersin
found this dead bike on the road
i couldn't believe i ran out of gas after less than 100 miles after the fill up (normally i get 140 miles, but that's on flat ground)....
have to lay the bike down and let some of the gas in the other side of the tank to cross over and rode for another 8 miles.
back in camp, we watched the vids
sunday night dinner was hosted by rich and ersin. the burger was a special kind, that was good.
the camp fire courtesy of spafxer. thanks jim for donating 7 bundles of firewood....
the evening was quiet, and we were all tired. went to bed around 11pm.
monday morning was labor day, so everyone took another hour of sleep
being a holiday weekend, brown's is strangely quiet
check out the truck and rv......:eek1
part of the breakfast
there was no rush to get home, made it to my house around 6pm. lorie and i were glad to do this trip. she also got the chance to meet the PPs, and all good things to say.

Are you guys on comms? Trying to figure out who Rich is talking to in the first vid.
Nope, you know him. He is just crazy... :)
Yes we are using Sena intercom.
good job ersin capturing this one. people will now have an idea what silver canyon looks like (downhill).
the ride up to me i think is easier, just that one section we have to make a sharp right turn and a tight switchback at the top. the rest can be done by an intermediate rider on a big bike.
i've seen a few riders in the past lost their front brake due to the fluid was boiling.
You used your brakes??
Seriously, that damn husky I have to shift up a gear or I have to keep adding throttle, it has so much compression braking.
I thought it was easier going down. Took me about 40 minutes from WMRS to Bishop.
Stopped at the Law's Museum. Very nice, they have a LOT of period stuff there that has been donated and assembled over many years. Want to go back and take the wifey. She would like the original house that is all setup, early century authentic.
From there went by the VAGABOND INN to see if our other inmates were there...nope, trucks but no bikes. Then on up to Sabrina Lake, North Lake, and South Lake. Found a nice pond off the road going to South Lake and got some good dry-fly action for trout.
Laws is great. My family liked the agents house and the old Catholic church converted to their library. The train house was neat too.
Hey did the guy on the 990 have any over heating problemes going up silver canyon. I went up there last weekend and it got hot twice going up. I was all loaded down with my camping gear and a tail wind.
I don't recall Erisn saying anything about overheating on Silver Canyon but I can tell you my GSA did fine going up. It did overheat a couple days earlier going up to Coyote Flats. I had to stop in some shade and let it sit for about 30 mins.
I had overheating problem last year. It was my first year and I was a SIlver Canyon n00b. Bike overheated and I had to wait for it to cool down, twice.
This year I was OK. I got a flat right about bike was getting hot and had to stop and fix it half way to the top. :)
Im not the only one thats good to know. Cooling off. I cant wait to go back silver canyon, wmrs,one of my new favorite rides.
joe, that's a nicely set up 990. glad to see it's being put to use.
yeah, wmrs is a great ride and at 12k, it's scarce to be find a riding place in ca like it.
another plus, lots more riding areas in the area.
los burros rd
that's the one....
all i remember is this road to get up to the ridgeline
pics from last year, the road was in great shape, not so much this time, lots of silt
New sneakers finally mounted. . Ready for some riding in Cuyamaca.
Leaving Rancho San Diego around 7:00... Home around 1:00.
Trails and back roads....all big bike friendly.
Post up if you're interested in heading out with me or meeting up.
