    Joel, if you have a 220 volt dry plug I can bring my flux wire mig welder /100ft extension cord.

    I would hate to see your electricty bill the following month if KLR pegs failure is that previlent.

    Joel, this is with it just pasted in. IT gets to google but then I get an error message saying my IP is not allowed. dunno what's happening after that, I guess it might be a limitation of adv. Can anyone else see the map below?

    the email link works though

    does anyone know if it's possible to embed a map from google on adv?

    Save it as an image and upload to Photobucket. Then add teh IMG link to the post. Click on the little A's in the upper right corner before posting the link. This is what works for me. I also sprinkle some magic phoo phoo dust on it .

    WTF? the google link I posted doesn't work.
    but then you quote it and it works perfectly in the quoted text.
    I looked at the page source and I sure don't see where you changed anything to photobucket.

    The recent storm in the last couple of weeks brought a lot of snow in the local mountains and dampen our riding at our favorite stumping grounds. No where else to go but the High Desert


    Today finally came to ride the much awaited Randsburg Mojave Brewery Run. Total of 18 riders showed up, yeah, it's unusually big and Rob aka notmybikemodelname did a good job organizing the ride and keeping us intact as much as possible.

    The original plan was to to start from Lytle Creek, ride north to Randsburg and to the Mojave Brewery approximately 150 miles mostly dirt. Then another storm hit socal last week and dump more snow; which was a concern that it will be icy and dicy. Many chickened out, including myself and opted to start the ride from a lower elevation at Phelan.

    Rob, Punkenduro, and TBarstow stuck to the plan and proved to all the good condition at Lytle Creek...:D and they had a good and an uneventful ride.

    We were just half hour off from the schedule when we all met in Phelan.

    the rain made the road perfect for desert riding...minimal dust and great traction
    [​IMG]

    the desert was pretty deserted...just us throughout the morning
    [​IMG]

    we stayed below the powerlines most of the time and we got bombarded with EMFs which could had influence today's ride....:dog

    even though it was a straight shot, the hill climbs and downhills made the dirt interesting
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    it wasn't peachy all the time....:D
    [​IMG]

    That's just tragic. How about a hopholster?

    It even comes in KTM orange, I guess they understand their target demographic.:freaky
