    Wohoooooooo!

    Great riding, lots of good guys, beautiful weather, and more dirt than I want to ride! I'm not sure how many miles but I would guess we did around 200.

    It's true, Sito carry a ju-ju, 2 riders ended up turning around cuz of bike breakdown.

    John and I ended up slabbing it out on the 5FW from north of Templin to home.

    Lots of nice pics and will post them tonight.

    Thanks to the 10 other riders who came and joined the ride. :clap



    FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO FIND OUT ABOUT THE OLD RIDGE ROUTE......IT IS STILL CLOSED :deal And so we didn't bother breaking through or going around the gate, since that will put a BIG BLACK EYE to the ADV Community.

    We ended up turning around and found the highway to get home.

    checking in. Home now. Bike completely died just after getting back on Lake Hughes Rd. Coasted a while and then waited for someone to stop to call home and get the truck. In the meantime, met a Shawn from Frazier Park on a 950 KTM.

    Those KTM's tow real nice. :cry

    Hooo boy...who dressed you this morning?

    [​IMG]

    :lol3 Just kidding! Only reason I mentioned it was your earlier post about the colors.

    Most of us guys use the sniff method of getting dressed for a ride. If we can sniff it without wrinkling our noses...it's good!:krusty :umph :D:lol3

    I think you both will be ready for some more challenging trails soon! :thumb

    Yeah...at least cars can see me...and :puke2

    Two trails...let me get some more seat time before we tackle goat tracks. I'm still making some really bone head moves. Switchbacks are my enemy for some reason. I also have issues with those boots. Upshifting is a PITA. Half the time I can't find the shifter. If I do find it I can't get my toe under it or the edge of my boot doesn't catch the edge of the shifter. It's like trying to shift with a large cast on my foot. Anything I can do about this? Who else has Alpinestars Tech 6 boots? :confused

    The more you ride, the quicker you will get used to those boots....or try to bring the shifter lever up by a notch.:freaky

    Familiar background...we meet here almost every Saturday. First time we had 2 rides in the same day...the nOObs did SCD, while the experts and wanna bees (me) went to Lake Elizabeth. There were 13 ADV inmates went riding in the near perfect weather today.

    Lots of bikes in front of 7-11...it seems that this is becoming a favorite meeting place

    Ok I'm back....still with a big grin from yesterday's ride..:D


    After hooking up with the renegades, we took Tule Ridge. A few of us took the dirt trail on the left side of the picture, but the expert ffs decided to ride the ridge literally...a single track, you won't see me taking pics on that one :lol3 . Billy will give the complete details, not just one but 4 versions..:rofl

    sito our trail leader led the assault

    sorry richK, no pic of you doing the hill climb on the gs1200, next time give me a clue...i would love to show that to the 950 guys.

    the trail you see is what i and a couple of us did, but for the rest of the ffs, they actually took the ridge. this ride put tule ridge as one of the difficult trails around here. ask billy :cry

    [​IMG]


    we waited for the rest of the "expert ffs" which showed up 30 minutes later :ddog
    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    some riders showed up but not ours, and they told me the ffs were held up because one of them got stuck :lol3
    [​IMG]


    javier asked me to post this to send a message to dr and rob
    [​IMG]


    finally sito showed up with the rest of the ffs
