Thanks for the Great report.
Great RR, thanks! Congratulations on recovering for that ride home.
I spent a week north of Kingston last summer, christening our newly built cedar strip canoe on Mazinaw Lake. There is some really pretty riding up in that area. Enjoy it for the two weeks of summer. (I grew up in Winnipeg; I know whereof I speak! )
Great ride report!
I too am a fellow DR350 rider!
You were out and about in my backyard
It is a shame that West Camino Cielo was gated up after the Gap fire, and now from the recent Tea fire Gibraltar is closed up....a sad affair
If I would've known you were out and about in this area I may have joined up with you
Holy cow that was a great read.......
Great RR. Thanks for posting it.
Really nice ride! I'm so jealous! Glad you took the time for the second post.
Thanks for weighing in. I didn't want to speak for your experience, and you've done so very well indeed. I don't remember much _actual_ bravado either, just intimations of it. Partly to try and psych myself up, partly to try and give you a boost, though it was evident after the first few hills, you didn't need any boost from me. I just about lost my lunch (oh wait, we didn't eat that day!) trying to keep up with you on the way back
The ADVRider salute to each of the hills was classic.
Acerbis 4 gal tank. Great addition to the bike. I get about 150 miles before reserve kicks in, which is about 3.5L. My fuel mileage averaged in the mid-40's, but keep in mind I was WFO most of the trip, and my main jet is a bit rich.
Wes had D606's front and rear on his DRZ. I am running a TKC80 front and Kenda 270 rear, and I'm happy with the combo. After 2500 miles of hard dual-sporting, both tires still look great, while the D606's are seriously worn.
Is it only me that is a bit upset about these guys ignoring closed road signs? Or did I miss something here where they have an exemption from laws? This hurts our image. Just another thing wrong with our society. Flame me I am old and rich and dont give a damn.
some great pics here
hey, thanks Esteban!
Nice to meet ya' at Rockhound. Looking forward to the next one!
I realize that this is an old thread but I had to chime in (better late than never). I recently did a ride in this area on my DR350. it was my first off road in 15 years. It was an awesome ride. W also had ate at the Rock Inn. Delicious breakfast. I had a great time and I hope to go back soon.
It is an awesome area, and the Rock Inn was excellent for sure.
Can't wait for my next California ride. You guys are awfully lucky to have this as your backyard.
Great ride and great pics!
My first bike was a DR 250S, I still have it and it works fine with more than 100.000km.
