    Sweet! :clap Wish I could have made it. It's good to see a local 950 being abused again, since RWC got rid of his. Also good to see you are still abusing Casey. :rofl

    Bunch of pussies in this valley. :bore :pot

    What do you mean further up the hill? :dood Ya still need more power?

    Thanks for posting and I'll be waiting for the videos. :ddog

    Yup, Casey is sort of beat to shit. But kudos to him, street tires and all. He's no pussy :lol3

    I think I need more balls, not power. 2nd gear and 7k rpms weren't enough, I needed third I think

    I rode the DR out to the dunes today to scout out a spot to camp. Conditions are off the charts awesome!!! :thumb The sand is nice and damp and carvable. Even on the pig DR. We will be camped at the north end of the pond (dry now). GPS coordinates 44.303637,-117.212087. The easiest way to the camp spot is to go 3/4 of a mile past the main parking area/outhouse. Make a 180 degree left turn when the main road meets the railroad tracks. Camp is 1/2 mile down that road.

    Come on out and play! No excuses! All bikes and rider skills welcome. It's only 87 miles from Boise, the last 8 miles are hard packed gravel road. I expect to see some 950's out there throwing some monster rooster tails. I'll be throwing roost on my 450 and Bob will be roosting his 500. Roost there or be square. :D

    The extra 1/4 mile down, 180 degree turn around and 1/4 mile back to find camp is just for fun?:huh

    What happens if you make the 180 degree turn to the Right?

    It may be white out there. :clap The forecast calls for 1-3 inches of snow friday night and a low of 4° with NW winds 10-14 mph for Saturday night. That would be a windchill of -11° to -14°. :vardy:kumbaya Who's in?

    Sorry Omigo, 1-3" of white means I have to work. Or at least stay home, look out the window all night, and hope to work.


    However, I will wish I was there. When I thought I was going to be gone, I gave permission for a whole pile of 13 year old girls to have a slumber party. Maybe I'll sleep in the camper anyway.

    TR383 gets things going

    We have ignition :wink:

    [​IMG]

    Enjoyed a couple hours benchracing, the train operators seemed to enjoy the fire, they honked as they passed by.

    We hope to attend next months campfire, we won't be riding on two wheels for some time, but we have enjoyed exploring with the Suzuki two-up.

    Brrr! Woke up Sunday morning to 9 degrees, assume HB made it home safe, see TR383 has posted so he must be home safe and sound as well. Thanks for putting this together, was nice to see our friends out on two wheels! :clap

    Thanks for the pics Katy. :thumb I'm glad you two made it out to share the campfire and stories. I can't figure out why more people didn't show up on such a nice sunny weekend. :scratch Maybe it was the 20mph+ winds with 30mph+ gusts along with teens for a high and subzero for lows. Oh and the snow also. :rofl

    Bobs rig parked out on Cocklebur Flat. Or Cocklebur Camp? This is normally a pond when the reservoir is closer to full.

    [​IMG]

    Yes, it was a little breezy. :eek1

    [​IMG]

    Bob is ready to ride! I'm glad I have one reliable riding buddy. He is usually up for a ride most anytime. Even on some of my more harebrained ideas for a ride. See above. :lol3

    [​IMG]

    There he goes.
