    After months of planning a group of us got together for our annual group trip. This is one of those trips where I slow down and be nice because we're on "vacation". :lol3


    The group..Jim, Nancy, Andy, me, Ben and Nicky on one foot:

    I'm not the one to complain of bad dreams
    It's like disease, but without a life
    It's all a scene with this great directive

    [​IMG]


    That we're all lost and we're stuck in time
    We feel alone in a strange blue ocean

    [​IMG]


    And we're all scared as death to die...

    I'm not the one to admit it's helpless
    I have a sense that we will be alright
    I wish for peace with electric silence

    [​IMG]


    To keep our hearts beating on our minds
    And we will see that we're all connected
    When we awake to the tunnel's light

    [​IMG]


    Suit up, boys
    We're on vacation

    [​IMG]


    Suit up, boys
    Let's ride, it's the weekend

    [​IMG]


    Get down, girls
    And dance with your best friend
    Show yourselves, and take what you ask for
    Let it go, no fights on the garage floor

    [​IMG]


    The night gets better, but wait, so wonderful
    They move together and dance so colorful

    [​IMG]


    And kiss like flowers that breathe with pheromones
    Songs get louder, it feels so natural

    Hi guys!!

    I just switched the video from private to public. I have to hide it from a certain brad21 until I'm ready to post. :lol3 It might take a minute to switch.

    Nixels came over to my house because we needed to work on his bike before we could go. The carb boots had 25 years worth of cracks and enough air was getting in to make it run like crap. I let Nicky suffer for a bit, then I ripped all four carbs out of the boots at once, the screws in the clamps wouldn't come loose. To put the carbs into the new boots we used a ratchet strap. Should run good enough for 10,000 feet now.

    We rode out half an hour behind schedule to meet the rest of the group in Sonora, CA. Had an awesome lunch at the Diamondback Grill. This is the first time for some of us to ride together and I promptly got the entire group introduced to the Sonora Police Department. An ass chewing later we were on our way...some in the group were probably wondering what they had gotten themselves into. :lol3

    We stopped at the super cool overlook. It was closed, but we went for a look anyways.

    We picked plenty of re-group places so we didn't lose anybody.

    The needle stuck open near 10,000 feet on SFKLR's XRR, so I gave him a push down the hill to get it started. He ran the bowl dry, then refired it and it unstuck!!

    SenorPeligro had scouted a nice dirt diversion that cut out some pavement miles. We sent Nixels on ahead to Lee Vining on pavement for a nap.

    Benjava is getting pretty good at the dirt riding..time for a ride to Usal Beach I think.

    I'll give these slackers some time to post some pictures before I get too far ahead.

    Larry, was that Silver Creek Canyon? Where are the hard bits? TKC's would be nice for that.

    I don't think your bike with that almost bald tire would make it up. Fewer stream crossings and much steeper. Jim fell down once, pointed down the hill to bump start then came up with no further problems. It has one of those hills that messes with your head, it's steep...easily ridden. The 800 with some decent knobs would be fine.

    I was waiting for my side stand to tunnel into the sand taking you both down for a great comedy photo. :poser

    Yeah maybe that rear Anakee2 needs to be replaced soon. BMW told me it was the most aggressive tire available for the F800GS. Is that covered under my warranty? :deal
