    Home. Great ride. Awesome weather. Since I didn't have my camera I'll leave it for others to write the RR.

    Home... tired... dirty... but can't stop smiling.:D
    Wow guys, I'm sorry I waited so long to finally get out and ride with everyone here. Guess I was just a little too timid.
    Well, I'm hooked now and hope to be a regular.:clap
    It was a wonderful day today and a great group of riders, it was very nice to meet all of you and I'm looking forward to riding with y'all again.

    Thanks again everyone for all the fun today.:ricky

    12 showed up, 10 finished. Good day, no flats. Nobody got hurt too bad, got some hill climbs in. My GPS is acting up, for me something breaking or me losing something is routine. Had a good time! Took some videos with the camera of a hill climb and some water crossings, will upload those later. Also, here is a link to the pictures from Mojave a few weeks back.

    WAIT - Joel, You were doing that on the last ride!
    Just loosen up all the bolts on the triple trees and everything will straighten up on its own..
    I know as I had to do the same thing at a gas station after my water bar altercation in Idaho
