    Well, you said something about bringing 2 bikes....one for trails and the 690 is what I assume you mean. I have a 4-7 day ride on the shelf for the 690....and a few days of local single track....so say a week at least for your truck to be parked in Kamloops....and there is WAY more riding than that....we should talk...I will give you a call.

    I will call the parole officer for your tel # :D:D

    Very hard to see, but aparently something very small is hidding behind you Ged. Wonder what could it be :deal. Could be alive ... :lol3 If I was that small, I too would swim very close to the shore :rofl

    Paul,
    That's Bobby from the East Coast.....cool dude who was on an XR 650....poor guys shin was hamburger after kicking that beast to life for 9 days,,,,and hitting the footpeg for days on end in the process.

    We had to medicate him at the end of each day :cry

    These guys may be doing a Continental Divide ride this summer.....I just want to go back to that beach...... :clap:D

    XR650 is actualy an excellent bike ... When you say medicate him, you mean with beer or scoth ??? Hope I understood wrong ...

    If you go back to that beach make sure is in the front of the picture ... So we could at least confirm what gender he is ... :deal

    His gender is even more subject to question when you see him ride. No offense to fast ladies out there.

    All manly men, fer sure.:D

    No whiners, great senses of ha ha and camaraderie, and boundless enthusiasm for long hot days.

    An epic ride that I am tempted to retrace parts of again...

    As for the Rx that Bobby required....an herbal poultice applied to the injured area seemed to serve him well....but rest assured that there were threats of moonshine made by Bobzilla....but standard spirits seemed to surface from Coyote bags on a regular schedule once the fire was underway....and regularly accompanied by BobZ saying, with a far-away look, "This sure beats the hell out of any motel room...".


    We all had to agree.:lol3

    I couldn't understand what you've written here. Asked google to translate it. Turns out: "Excuses from a well educated and articulated man to get drunk again !!! " ... Keeping in mind that the common name "Bobzilla" is in that paragraph, go figure the extend that this really translates to :deal:rofl

    Seriously ??? That's a treatment for reptilians !!! :huh

    Paul,
    As I believe in the notion that humans somehow miraculously developed from oceanic slime....we are sharing some genetic factors with reptiles....so the herbal treatment worked for Bobby :deal :clap :lol3

    Nice ride, Ged. The north rim is particularly nice riding. I need to get back there to work soon, and need to bring a bike with more legs (...in a small voice, I've been riding a CRF150F out there the last couple years...).

    Gaspipe,
    This ride was epic in several ways and has only left me wanting to return and do more of it. The guys (all new to me) were a great group....treated me well enough that I didn't have to stick a fork into anybody's eye :D

    Bobzilla came up here late August and we spent a week riding my favourite routes in BC....and we had a very good ride despite landslides and beaver-dam floods.

    Bob still conjured up that faraway look by the campfire saying, "This is WAY better than any motel...":nod

    Pretty much anywhere we can find that is light on people and fat on emptiness seems to make for good rides. Seems like we've chased each other all over Baja, but yet have crossed tracks. One day, it'll happen.

    Ride on!
