    Much like a beautiful woman, the Husaberg FI is fussy, expensive and when you're really hot to go,
    she just won't turn over. . .

    Good times this year, thanks to all the hospitality folks offered to us riding in, mucho gracias to Jimmy, Roy, Charles and Rob and the rest of you that were very accommodating. It was great meeting some of the folks I did and seeing some old friends, looking forward to the next time. Stand by for the LOST Rally in March... :evil

    Here's some visuals of mine from the ride, more to come.

    Good stuff, Finn! You are getting me to step up my game for post production in Light Room.

    Speaking of which, I'm about halfway through my junk...

    Thanks to everyone who helped make this happen. We met some great people and hope to ride with you all soon. Fog, rain, and then the wind kicked up on Sunday. Did anyone get caught in that on the way back? Those crosswinds were crazy and riding out was fight against it. There was a sandstorm somewhere between Trona and 58 I could not stop to take photos or the bike would have tipped. The Racetrack and then Titus Canyon both for the first time, was nothing short of amazing. Thanks for the route planning. Pictures to come.

    It was a great weekend, the rain Friday night made riding conditions for Saturday perfect.
    We were carving up the dunes with knobbies...

    Thanks RAZR for organizing the event, thank you Windrat for the campsite, my RR and pics soon.
