Here are some pics I snapped, hoping not to duplicate any already posted
Looks like another great day of riding. You guys are racking up the miles and you picked a perfect day! Thanks for the picks!
Great pics and ride reports fellas!
One of these days I'll make it out to the husky monument!
Great camera, Isaac. Great photo too. Front page material.
Caption contest? "The only dirt most GSA's will ever see"
Looks like a great ride guys. Wish I was there...

Great video! You had the same reaction I did when I heard those double sonic booms "WTF was that?!!!" It was too loud to be guns. I thought it was artillery or something.
Great shot of me relaxing and waiting for some assistance lifting that pig. My feet were just digging into the sand trying to do it by myself.
You chuckled as Todd got slowed by the sand, then again when I was stuck in it, then it got you too finally.
Good practice for LAB2V ... LATER THIS WEEK! :eek1
Yea I think it's funny how I talk to myself when I ride. My bike is too quiet.
Do we have a shuttle up? If so did it land at Edwards, most of the time that is why we heard the double sonic booms. It could have been either AF or USN jets breaking the sound barrier.
9 PPs woke up early, braved the cold at 40F and took a chance of getting rained on. thanks to all and if it wasn't for you guys, your love for adventure, this thread is dead.... let me know when you want to go riding and we'll organize another similar outing
who would be dumb enough to go riding in this weather....:eek1 i made it through, the gsa riders who were like 15 minutes behind me were not as lucky.....
dannyG as he passed me on the way to mojave
we planned the ride
yeah, we rode the plan and more...........nice job here isaac.
by 9:01 am, all riders are there at the mcDs. did i say it's fat bike friendly ride....
adam showed us on this ride that the gs8 is the best bike; same with lior, they ruled the sandwash.....
Joel, where is your HP2? That would have been a perfect ride.
thanks for the pics lior. love those 4 season rally outfits, but i noticed someone bike does not match..... :huh
great to meet you todd and gerd. you guys + eric did the right thing and get a preview of the la2b2lv by simply following dannyG......
i think the 950 ruled!
There are no more shuttle flights
lots of good pics there isaac. thanks. the last time i remember seeing so many BMWs was when we did the carrizo plain a few years back. i see they're not extinct yet....
good job sean capturing the ride after we left the monument. first i hated dannyG, so many woops and deep sand combined. can't go blasting away because of the 2 - 3 foot deep woops.
but then i later realized it was a good exercise to develop our sand skills...
u can open club with Tomer
what stop u from blasting???
from mojave, it's a 8 mile pavement ride to the nearest dirt. uhmm...not exactly, cuz one "rider" could not wait and went crazy and rode the soft shoulder and made all the motorist around inhale his dust...:ddog
airing down where randsburg-mojave and 20mule splits
we started on easy dirt so everyone gets to warm up and make their adjustments
the super enduro caught up with me quickly and here i can tell what this rider is thinking.....
eric still looking very fresh at this moment; those riders in the background looked amazed seeing us
from start to end, i think this stretch is about 40 miles. the road was so smooth, one can easily go balls out.
close up of the road
topping off in johannesburg. i put in 1 gal and assumed that i can do 45mpg or about 130 miles in one full tank...big mistake which i will find out later.
the little mining town of randburg. we ended up not hanging out there since it was only 10:30am
only several dirt bike and atv riders that morning
back at the gas station, someone has a bigger toy
I'm guessing 1 was an f-15 and 1 was an f-16. Edwards was right over the hill from us. Just a couple of fighter jocks doing some hot laps over the desert.
