    Gery, I was on the red Honda XR650L.

    You ride that XT225 well, I was impressed by your skill, and hearing that engine constantly "screaming!" :clap

    I don't think there's much that can be done with that bike, your only real alternative is to get a larger displacement bike and have it lowered for you.

    That rock strewn stream crossing was very tough, the darn rocks would just move under the tires and the bike just bucked and wobbled unpredictably in every direction possible.
    I was wishing I had a much lighter bike, that's for sure:knary
    I'm lucky I didn't have an Austrian U-Boat!

    That water was the perfect temp.

    BTW, I noticed that I was the only one throwing a roost/wake from the entry point. What's up with that? Oh yeah, I guess this picture shows the result :lol3

    I'm so proud of this pic that I already cross posted it over in Thumpers.

    First off thanks to everyone in the advance group.....really good group of riders that played well together - great leading Sito :clap Thanks Joel for putting it together, and to Dunerat for providing support and laughs.

    Unfortunately I only had my camera phone with me on this ride so very few pictures.

    This is the river crossing. Really nice and clear. Kind of hides how deep it is but at least you can see the some of the boulders.

    After the river crossing there's some more boulders you have to negotiate. Long legs help.

    Here's Wally looking for a line.

    Sometimes over the big rocks is easier then around them :evil

    [​IMG]

    Tada! :clap

    After that it was a nice goat trail on an exposed cliff :huh but fortunately we didn't have to air lift anyone's bike out.

    Hey Rob, looks like you might still be back at McDonalds. Did you not have it running after that? I would had thought it would had sent out a signal of where it last was...several in fact, unless of course it ran out of batteries.

    Made it back safe and almost sound. Very swollen calf from one of my 4? incidents! Best one was where for no apparent reason my bike went bouldering. Sito chased for miles screaming while I rode comfortably totally tuned out listening to Italian classical music. WTF was Sito carrying on about when we finally had to stop for another rider? Could it be the flaming Husky? Ripped a fuel line off while bouldering. Only spewed a few gallons. Who would have thought Sito was such an environemtalist?

    Other than a few dropped bolts and one sheared faring mount bolt it was going pretty OK. That is until the bike stopped turning left?? One dropped bolt managed to wedge itself very securely in the steering lock. Took a while to sort that one out. Thanks again Tim.

    CDub and I missed the dirt turnoff after lunch. We rode back up to past where we knew Rob had last been seen with us. Didn't see anyone so we both took pavement back. I finished the day off getting thoroughly lost in Riverdino.
