    Don't worry Joel. The last time Scorpion did this ride with the LA Wknd Group, he went home too. Had a problem with his fuel pump. But he was back yesterday. If the guy wants to ride he'll fix his bike and be back. If not he'll stick with the KLR gang next time.

    Sorry, no pic's of the GS taking a nap :snore with its face in stuck in a drop-off when a drop off a big bolder didn't go as planned. It was too hot and by the time Sito helped me get her upright, we just wanted to get moving.

    Gotta love friends when they help ya get your heavy weight DS upright w/o more damage than need be. Love her dearly, but man!, I wish she would go on a diet!

    Great pics Joel. keep em coming!

    Joel, do you know Sito quite a bit better than the rest of us?

    and have you been reading your camera manual lately?

    Don't rule out rear brake seizure.

    Great pictures and nice report so far Joel. Keep it coming. It's helping me procrastinate.

    I am not part of the Harley bashing group....

    After all, how many KTM's, Husky's, or KLR's come with this accessory ??


    Seems like many Harley's do !

    Riding sand on slicks is usually a bad idea. Where is that? I don't remember sand on Cleghorn.

    I'm not either. I was just teasing. I like that accessory as well. Plus Harley riders make cars much more aware of motorcycles on the road. Not to mention, they are kind of like moses when you get behind them spitting lanes.

    I'm not a KLR basher either. But today I am playing one on this thread.

    I think any bike you ride is great, for whatever reason you ride it.

    just one of those days.....it ran out of juice.

    that's why it's nice to have a kickstarter on the side....:clap

    That's why I didn't do Cleghorn with the rest of the guys.... that's not the bike for that kind of stuff, & certainly not with those tires

    My plan was to ride out there, ride some roads... meet the guys for lunch, ride some roads back to McDs

    Lonestar decided to join me so we rode over to Big Bear while the guys were having their dirt adventure, decided to take in a dirt road (2N10 & 2N08) managed that bit without incident...

    After lunch we looked at a map & consulted with Sito... decided to head back to McDs via the 173 to the 138 rather than back the way we came.... the map I was looking at showed that road as being paved :eek1

    when we discovered that the road turned to dirt, we decided to go ahead & give it a try... wasn't too bad, except for that one bit of sand:rolleyes

    That sounds fun too. Sorry you fell, but at least you didn't go over the edge this time. Are you going to go with more aggressive tread on your next set of tires (soon)? Or are you going to keep that bike just for the road?

    Yes, I know I need new tires soon, & probably will be looking for something with a slightly more aggressive tread, but I did get that bike primarily for the road.... it just seems that there are these dirt roads sometimes :lol3
