Damn. Check out the brand spanking new gear on you. Congrats Ben
Gooooooooooooooooood job girls! :eek1
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.
FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO FIND OUT ABOUT THE OLD RIDGE ROUTE......IT IS STILL CLOSED 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.
Joel. Cathy had to ride without you today. She is tired of you stocking her and taking Pictures of her ass. Ben
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.
sorry to hear about the trouble bro ,next time the orange one ,glad you made home ok
The only thing on my camera that came out good...
For some reason, my own camera hates me.
joel sorry for the turn back ,there was a easy way out just the old timer really had to justify his existance.then just past templin hwy before the dirt drop in we see you guys going down the 5.good ridethanks guys
174 miles on the G650X was fun.... at this time the bike is NOT 4 sale
change from 85psi to 105 made very big difference
and now you mad o me
Hooo boy...who dressed you this morning?
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!
I think you both will be ready for some more challenging trails soon!
WHERE ARE THE PICS PEOPLE!!!
Yeah...at least cars can see me...and
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?
The more you ride, the quicker you will get used to those boots....or try to bring the shifter lever up by a notch.
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
Sito's bike getting some attention
Plenty of good riders today, not enough nOObs :eek1
I got Cathy's .......nevermind again , not on the bike though
the color combo is not really that bad.....
danny, definitely you need a leatt brace
on the way to little t
the good part of the ride is taking the 35 miles of twisties on the way to the trail.
danny starting to like the x-challenge
Joel, you should be in bed by now!!
Keep those pics coming!
artboy and the rest of the crew
john got caught between a fallen branch and the source
we stopped by to see if texas canyon is opened
danny was telling us he did texas canyon on his gs :eek1 and boiled his brake fluids on the way down....same trail nowwhat, artboy and I did when we were noobs...that was fun sliding down the trail with locked wheels.
more canyon riding
screwing around in green valley
just another beautiful day in los angeles and an empty highway
sito placed a rock on top of sito's rock...
hanging out at the trailhead waiting for tt and bb
we're not the only guys with cool rides this morning
we decided to push on thinking the other group of ffs are waiting for us at the other stop.
not for long we got the salute
billy true to his promise...made it to the meeting place on time
richK...first time riding with us....very good rider on a sick bike
lots of oranges
the hottest bike around...a 690 Enduro
the army issued kawi
more pics coming
Ok I'm back....still with a big grin from yesterday's ride..
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 . Billy will give the complete details, not just one but 4 versions..
sito our trail leader led the assault
not sure, could be javier or jeffe with a nice tiny wheelie
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
we waited for the rest of the "expert ffs" which showed up 30 minutes later :ddog
some riders showed up but not ours, and they told me the ffs were held up because one of them got stuck
javier asked me to post this to send a message to dr and rob
finally sito showed up with the rest of the ffs
i think, at this point, dannyg decided that he will keep the bike
jeff is loyal to his color
trail side repair was needed before moving on, was that from the 1st attempt, or 2nd, or 3rd, or 4th....?
as we start moving, the richK's gs died , i will let him provide the story
after half an hour of securing connections and fuel lines, he's motoring again
javier asked me to post this to send a message to dr and rob
wrong finger dude
we got there before the parking lot get covered with chrome
i noticed the blue klr....
it's bob and he has been waiting for us inside
