    Looking at this burned up hulk, my mind can't help but wander as it develops a crazy tale of drugs, guns, hookers, Vegas, ........

    or maybe it was simple recall defect

    or a car theft, drunken, wild ride through the desert that ended in a burning celebration of all things wild.....

    Glad to report that yes, I talked with the Rangers when I was re-entering the park and they knew about the breakdown. The folks had gotten out alright, although a bit dehydrated they were fine.

    Great Pics! Thanks for sharing.

    What tires are you running? Pressures - same on and off road or do you air down?

    Thanks,
    Ken

    You're having toooo much fun out there. I am always tempted to take the rental car out on the OHV trails. So tempted but only make it far enough to park, walk a few yards and dream. It is two days of straight riding. ne day again.

    A friend of mine loved lentils. I thought they tasted like dirt. Lentils are dirt. :lol3

    Hey Ken :wave the front is a TKC 80 and the rear is a Mitas E07, I normally run around 30psi and don't air down unless I plan to ride nothing but dirt for days. I haven't played around much with tire pressures.

    Plan was to do Camino Cielo to Refugio to Solvang's motorycle museum and of course grab some food along the way

    Wild flowers were blooming, dirt wasn't too dry and the weather was about perfect
