    And cops from even closer :lol3. They just wanted to make sure that we were staying on trails and that we had our permit to ride off pavement in the Indian Reservation.

    That might work for me, but I won't know for a few weeks. Send me an email via Enduro360. Thanks

    Thanks Mike!
    This ride proved that the Rally Navigator software works really well. I only rode Saturday, but the roadbook was certainly more accurate than the ones we got on the Tuareg Rallye in March.

    I'm not sure about that. I rode the Classic in NH a few weeks ago and it was epic. You've got some great riding there too! I'm lucky, I have a brother with 2 bikes in NH. (He's lucky too, I guess. I keep 2 bikes here.) But, check with Dave at RMS the next time one of these things comes up. He usually has some rental bikes with all the navigation equipment. We'd love to see some of you East Coasters out in the desert.

    fun fun

    Thanks Mike! I could certainly not get the "Rider Award" :wink:

    A few last ones...

    Another example of Mike choice of small detours to allow us to enjoy beautiful scenery...
    [​IMG]

    OK, so... 8 riders were before us... apparently they were more racy than we are since all tracks were super straight :D

    [​IMG]

    For us, the opportunity to mess around was too good to pass...
    [​IMG]

    ... and do doughnuts over and over
