    Excellent posts' Steve!

    Ironic your posts with the Anza Borrego, that I don't know off too well, and Moab, that I've ridden many times now over the past 5 years since joining in on Imu's group(@simbaboy)in 2014.


    BTW, here's how you're suppose to cross Mussleman Arch. Yes, that's yours truly, the great big whussy that I am,

    So I heard the Klaviator is going to Moab next year with you Sam. Tell him to bring some training wheels and show us this wheelie!. If I remember, it's a LONG way down! Ha Ha.

    yep , it's a long way down.

    You should be fine, relax your wrist enough to untwist that gas. Wish I had done that at Long beach,WA. I grabbed a handful, bike shot up in the air, I fell off and bike spiraled back down towards me. I just rolled out of the way as it landed on the front wheel with such force it bent the forks.

    Me and the Original Curios George looking down on SAND.
    Laptop Pictures-Misc 582.JPG

    He rode everywhere with me for a year, then I took him back to the area he was first found. I bet the kid was wondering where he was all that time!
    Now we are up the hills of Lost Valley.

    We left there and headed to High Point ,which climbs forever to Palomar mountain.

    Further up. Laptop Pictures-Misc 662.JPG

    OK, that's high enough, I'm getting a headache. ( only 6220 ft) It was 10 miles of views.
    Laptop Pictures-Misc 667.JPG

    We take the ridge route east to get down. More cool views.
