LOTS "O" FUN
Just walked in! what a great day of riding!! 310 miles today.
John thanks for leading us on a fun ride, Castaic, Cal City, Ransburg Lot of great roads! Weather was perfect and the company was great too!
Sorry I didn't get a chance to say good bye, I though you guys were going to split off in Atlanto? I waited but it looks like you guys must have hit the fire road?
Home from a day in the desert. Thanks John, had a great time. Pics later
It was great seeing you guys today...
In safe...great day...thanks guys....
At least 370+ miles. A hell of a lot of dirt, thanks to JGil's expert knowledge of the desert and navigational skills.
A snake saved, a horse spooked, found a missing WindRat, paid homage at the Husky Monument, and saw very few riders out today. They must be waiting for the crazy Memorial Day weekend??
Made a Toast to TT & NW in Randsburg. Had Phø in Reseda. If they had only turned off those damned Tehachapi wind machines, the weather would have been perfect all day!
Thanks to all involved!
A little over 300 miles. Saw lots of cool things and stayed off the pavement as much as possible.
Pretty good impromptu ride. Sorry we missed you Bob. Sounds like it was close.
I didn't take too many photos because our pro photographer CCer was on the job.
Vietnamese food for dinner ended things up nicely. I bought Jim some food as a peace offering for the sand dune he and Dale followed me up. Got a couple of one finger salutes over that. The brokeback beemer motored right up.
Great to meet up w/ the 3 amigos in Randsburg. They looked like they were having a good day.
Sorry I was late to the meeting I was trying a new way out to castaic
found a short dirt road that comes out at lake hughes road.
sounds like you had a great ride I'll leave earlier next time.
I did 200 miles around the hills and headed home.
meetup in castaic, windrat apparently took the scenic route and missed the launch. it's a big bike kinda day
overlooking the antelope valley on the powerline road between lake elizabeth and the aquaduct. this was just after i learned how heavy the 800 is to pick up, twice
i screwed up a bunch of photos with the camera dial moving to the manual setting and me not checking prior to every shot. I salvaged a few by making them artsy b&w. this shot has the aqueduct in the background, trust me
i didn't see it (wasn't keeping up with john and sito) but this snake escaped death when the hawk carrying it off was startled by the bikes and dropped the snake. he found the nearest hole and disappeared
here's another salvaged photo but turned out kind of cool. crossing over the 58 there was a truck on it's side, a victim of the wind we think. mr chp approaching on the right of the truck asked what was i doing and why am i there and why did i ignore the road closed sign. i explained we just came off a powerline road, he paused, frowned, and told me to move on
and one more salvaged pic that works well for gritty little randsburg. ran into nowwhat, traveltoad and toast. good seeing you guys. good video of hill climbs should be coming from toast.
we met again at the husky memorial. this place is better in person than in pics
the travel could be better on these forks
some photos in b&w, on purpose this time
rip fallen bikers
sito was having trouble all day with the engine cutting out. finally stopped and the boys put their heads together to figure it out.
black and orange were the colors of the day
late in the day we're in the middle of nowhere. this 70 mph super highway eventually turned into a rough 2 track, then hit a paved road. a stop for gas in lake los angeles and then home. thanks again guys - it was good times
Wow! Great pictures. Looks like a fantastic ride. Not to windy I hope? What? Sito has his bike in the shop numerous times to have the stalling fixed...........and a few ADVriders iron it out in the desert? :huh Way-to-go!
nice RR,looks like you guys had a blast.still havent been to the monument next time,i need to retire ...this work thingy is becoming a real drag
It was not really that windy... as long as you were riding in a certain direction.
It was my first time to the monument... it is much more impressive in person.
thanx for that yuos guys need to drop me note for the next ride out there,just not this weekend ,GFs Bday cheers
Wish yur Hottie HAPPY B-DAY from the OC :slurp
Great riding. Turned out to be only four of us.
My camera is dead for the most part. Too many dusty roads. Did snap a few shots.
Out of the dirt and onto San Fransiquito Cyn.
One of the coolest things I've seen was a fairly large hawk flying off w/ this "snack". I think the bikes scared the bird and the snake fell from about twenty feet up. This was no small snake.
Nice rig spotted in Randsburg.
Spafxer pointing out my lunch.
I would have had to be pretty fast to get a shot of the Red Racer that crossed in front of me on Randsburg-Mojave Rd.. Fast is an understatement. I've never seen one one those before.
Like I said, camera is near death. That's all I got.
Nice Report! I didnt make it back in town early enough for the ride but lent a bike to my nephew to take his riders test. A new DS'er is born!
Great RR! I love the pictures, especially the salvaged ones.
That snake looks alive and well. I guess it was his lucky day!
