    Damn it rode thru there today and was trying to figure out where all the bikes came from. In fact I think I hit 75,000 on the Bandit just past there and stopped to take a few picks. Stuck in a Hotel in Bishop, gave up on making it to friends place in Sacramento (something about snow and ice ahead). Might just have to turn around and head back there tomorrow.:D

    Another great trip under my belt. Really good folks, as always. Lots of experienced FF's to ride with and learn from.

    Weather was a bit overcast and cool but not too bad. Got down to 35 at the pass and some guys rode up into a blizzard at Hunter.

    Dunerat and his old lady had a great spread of food for us all. We were serenaded nearly all night long by Val. Yeah. Thanks. :freaky

    So without further adieu...

    This man has mad ninja skills

    Got a bit of a late start. You know how it is; herding cats and all. Ten f'ing o'clock!

    Made our way out to Saline Valley. We went through the canyon leading down and experienced our first water crossing, which you'll see in video form shortly. Oh here it is now

    We decided to take a break.

    Herrhelmet and Dunerat. We pass Dunerat earlier and he's having a cold one and smoke. He says "don't worry, I'll catch up with you guys..." He sure did. Rides like a bat out of hell.

    Plenty of breaks to rest

    Let's see... I know my fender came off somewhere around here... Wait a sec... what are all those naken men doing in the middle of the desert?

    Had to stop at the hot springs.

    Wallywhirled and I were the only ones to drop trou' and hop in the pools. Trust me, you don't want any pictures of that nightmare. :eek1

    "Okay, Eric, point to the place on the doll where the naked man touched you..." I still didn't feel so good at this moment about the whole thing.

    [​IMG]

    Ers found Tex's license plate right about here. BT dubs, there was a hell of a lot of sand in that place. Not so much big bike friendly.

    Some roadside repair on my bike as well as others'
