    I'm waiting for the Death Valley report and why moe.ron has hurting bones. :deal

    Sorry I missed you guys at DV, I didn't know which campsite you were in and the wifi in camp didn't seem to work very well to check. I wandered a little Thurs. night and Fri. morning before heading for home but didn't spot you.

    I know there's a good story coming up. :lurk

    What did happen to moe at DV? Is anyone talking?
    He posts, so we know he's alive... and at least two fingers still work :lol3

    Hope you and the bike are not too banged up moe.

    I am OK, just beat up a bit. Was out sight seeing and having a great day after applying a couple pointers Jimmy Lewis shared during a brief demo, it was actually one of my best days ever. Got a little smoother, more confident, and didn't seem to tire as easily. The bike is beat up a bit too but will heal nicely after a couple weeks at the dealer and a call to the insurance company.

    Glad you are OK moe.ron, you may not have talent, brains, looks or money, but you've got heart! :D and heart is more important than any of that other shit :nod :super

    After a topple over on the jeep trail leading to Darwin on Friday, Lost Rider says "Hey man, let me just ride it to the top of the hill for you" to which moe. replies "Fuck that! I'm going to ride it out of here!!" and then he crashed shortly there after. :lol3

    Heart of a lion, proud of your efforts this weekend...it was painful to watch, but good stuff at the same time.

    Moe.Ron, don't you know you are supposed to pick soft places to land? I chose a nice soft silt bed or two to land in after crossing hunter mountain. As far as that hill to Darwin I made it almost to the top before I chose the wrong line and stalled the bike. I knew those rocks were hard and begged for someone with longer legs and stronger arms to ride my bike through the few hundred yards of nasty rock garden. It sounds like you fell into the rock garden I wimped out of riding through. Darwin was worth the effort to get to though. :clap

    I'm glad you and your bike are OK for the most part and I hope even though you got banged up that you had a good time.

    :D Moe.ron goes to Death Valley :D

    After months of prep, riding, practicing, farkeling, talking it over, himming and hawing we were headed to Death Valley

    I was sick with some nasty crud for the weeks prior, walking pneumonia the doc said :cry:huh Gave me a pack of strong anti-biotics and I felt much better, but the morning of our ride out to DV I was feeling quite fucked up :eek1 Seeing double, feeling pukey in my helmet, hugging the white line of the slow lane for the first 50 miles :huh I never do that :huh
