Sorry to hear of your mech troubles. Maybe next time.
A tree limb got my visor on the way up. Thankfully my neck was stronger than the limb, this time anyway.
I know who cribaby is (he followed us up the single track) and who geoffster is (he was riding the x-country). Still working on matching all the rest of the names with the handles.
Glad we split from you guys and headed to Beek's place, sounds like we would have ended up with flats otherwise.
Tall bike + tall rider and we could not get him to run the tunnel in reverse met back up near the top of Saddleback where the trail started.
Fun ride today guys. it was nice to be able to put faces to names. i split off at the peak to head back to Silverado and on my way down i lost my rear brake (no bueno in the dirt) and ran into notmybikemodelname and herrhelmet on the side of the road...herrhelmet actually coasted down faster then i rode my bike back down...those fast F'ers
what bastards would have done that to your van
If it was a "fun ride" and a "good time" with three flats, just think what it would have been without the flats! (Although the flats gave you plenty of male-bonding time ... I am so thinking of "Wild Hogs"!)
It was great meeting all of you, although I'll fail to remember everyone's name except Randy -- he took a photo of me. I now have exactly ONE photo of my sorry self riding my Xcountry.
At every flat tire bonding session the main conversation was can't you fix a flat without pinching another tube, and I hope Rob comes by soon as we were out of BEER. All we got was another flat and empty beer cans at the end of the ride.
Had I known you guys were going to change more flats, I would have ridden back with you. Maybe next time. Had a great time anyway.
Looks like a good ride with a # of "trailside flat fixin classes".
Mike, my legs are still burning from friday, tough not surprised to see you made it! Looking forward to some of that singletrack.
Nice pics Randy, I love it when your above the clouds.
That was the general idea, but hard to ride up hills with boiling hot water blowing all over your balls.
We'll see you next time.
i guess this makes 2 now,
and i was totally going to leave tube and compresser at home, good thing i didnt. good riding with you all, well have to do one of these again some time. now a few pics to take up some space.
couple of ff's at hells
i have one question though, howed you get the flats after hells?
Mike picked up a nail thrown down from a Sierra Clubber, and I'm just fat
Hey, I think I blew by that dude on the Husky getting off the 55 onto Chapman as he was pulling into the g-station.
I was the FF'er at HK with Darin B. No wonder you guys looked so tired after changing tires all morning.....
HK and the Overlook were pretty much empty of bikes. I was surprised to see so few bikes on such a great day to ride.
Take care and next time I'll join you on my Plated Yamaha WR 426 if you don't mind riding with a slow guy.
I think it's time to pull the XR400 out of the shed and make a trip up the mountain. I've been waiting for the gates to be all opened up.
I know that trail well. My Brother and I must have been one of the first to take that trail after the gates opened one year and I had a low hanging branch knock me off my bike. It's a nice single track.
Rob had to use some of his beer to fill up my radiator after I ran out of my Camelback water, so he would have disappointed guys hoping for a beer resupply.
Is that a legal trail??
I thought I new the area, butt ,, where is it at??
As far as I know it's legal, every trail up there has signs stating no-motorcycles etc so this one in not marked with any signage at either end and starts off as a road on one side.
PM me as to directions, so I do not wrack a good thing for those in the know.
Someone blew by me right at the light. Thanks for yielding so I could pull into the station. I had already stopped on the wrong side of the lane before remembering to get gas. Sorry about the overheating issues. Geoffster and I saw another dude overheat in a roadrage sort of way on the way home.
Looks like a great ride everyone, I will keep watching this thread/forum for then next ride.
I decided that I was hurting too bad from my biff the week before on the same ride. I also decided that I biffed due to my 70/30 street/dirt treads and noob braking technique. Before my next serious off road ride I want to get some DOT knobs. Still thinking about which ones to get, see here
