    still waiting for some side view pics of moe.runs new tires he mounted on his f700 and a report how his cast wheels and tires did offroad. Said he may have some this past weekend, figured I'd post on here maybe I'd get lucky and you'd have some, thanks.

    All we had this weekend were flat dirt roads, and they did far better than the street tires.

    Rode on some interesting stuff at the beginning of this thread and the cast wheels did great.

    I posted pics of the tires on the bike in another thread around here somewhere.

    Hi :wave

    I did sign up for one ride at Death Valley although I'm probably going to change that. Right now I'm signed up for the Rhyolite and Titus Canyon ride on Fri. I signed up for it when it first posted and there's a lot more to choose from now so I'll go through all the options and decide if I want to do any of them or not.

    Since I'm taking my DR200 I figured the sidecar ride would be my speed.:lol3

    I'm going to be there all week riding so I hope to get the chance to see the things I really want to see before the rally starts. After that then I can take rides to be social. :D

    Really enjoying watching you two get out and ride some fun stuff! (my bike is snowbound for another month or two :cry )

    So how fast have you been getting on those dirt roads like Pine Canyon road?

    I was not on Pine Canyon with UpST8 that day. However, I do know I need to pick up the pace a bit or I will get left in the dust! I get a little faster and a little more confident each time out.

    I can't get the thought of how much I owe on that bike out of the back of my mind while riding, slows me down a bit. Don't care nearly as much now as I did before seeing it on its side a couple times!

    Who has an old, beat up, street legal dirt bike they want to sell?

    Went out for a ride Sunday (no moe.) The weather was questionable all day, looked like rain and did for a small time..

    Went out to Lockwood Valley to explore some roads I never hit, but unfortunately they were all closed for the winter...

    Head was kind of loopy today and for whatever reason I really didn't feel like riding. It's wierd, but I get like that from time to time. Look forward to riding all week and then get out there to not really be into it, but do I stop??? Hell No!! Go faster, go farther :eek1 Wrestle that fucking happiness out of this day :lol3

    Anyway...I did some sand riding practice in the dry river bed by Dry Canyon Road, nothing too crazy
