    Just rolled in, so until I (or anyone else) am/is back around & can compose a proper narration, here's several thousand words worth of photos...

    Nice!

    Thought I'd have to wait til tomorrow morning at work to hear about the weekend from ZenSlug.

    I was hoping to get there, but not this time.

    Looks like it was a blast.

    FYI, this was [SIZE=-1]extracurricular activit[/SIZE]y after the course and exercises were over. Graham was one of the last three students standing when neduro and crew finally broke for camp, so hats off to him!!!

    decides he's got the slow exercise down pat and goes for the launch sequence!

    Don't judge the performance of KTM's vs. DRZ's soley on the basis of this next photo only... :lol3

    [​IMG]

    I took a quick spin on Zen Slug's Orange and it was a blast!! His bike definitely outperforms the DRZ hands down, but then again if I had to pick which one to ride 100 miles home... that's where the utility of the DRZ wins out...

    As neduro narrates, surfphoto plays the lead role in, "I Fall Down on a Slope"

    Good demo, terrible acting. Here surfphoto reaches for the Oscar, trying to look upset at his 'mishap' :1drink

    For those of you who missed the course, study these four gestures and I guarantee your riding will improve 100%...

    However do not under any circumstances attempt this next move without proper supervision. This is the centerstand chicken dance I think... :lol3

    This weekend was a blast! It was great meeting all of you that showed up. We are going to have to make more group rides out there this year.

    For those of you that have a chance to go to one of Neds clinics all I can say is don't miss it. You will learn more in one day then from several years of riding.

    Thanks to all that made the camp experiance great. And thanks to Ned, Inte, Surfphoto and Motomike for passing on your experiance.

    I'll try to get up some of my photos later of the camp area, but Baja calls and I might not get them up till after the 1000.

    Let's do this again!!!!:clap

    If a bike falls over in the desert and only surfphoto notices it, does it make a sound?
    [​IMG]

    I think this is the only man in the world that can flat foot an 950 S.
    [​IMG]

    The idea is to go up the hill very slow and use the clutch for traction.
    [​IMG]

    Here is what you do if you can't make it.

    Ned showing how it's done.
    [​IMG]

    Now you go. Yes we have spotter, but they are just to take photos.
    [​IMG]

    Not sure who, but someone got stuck.
    [​IMG]

    To make the hill even more fun, there is a big pit of soft sand right at the top.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The trick is to go down the hill as slow as you can.
    [​IMG]

    Not an easy task on the big bikes.

    Saturday's clinic was about the most fun that I've had with my pants still on. Can't wait for the next group ride with you wonderful bunch of bastards.

    Ned's class is great. If he ever makes his way back East again, I'll take his clinic for a 2nd time. :D I see you guys didn't work on water crossings though. :scratch

    So where was the clinic held?
