    So I have been looking forward to this ride for about 2 months & boy was I happy when the day came to load up the pig(DR650) & set off for another adventure.

    I left Thursday night about 7PM from Sherman Oaks to Lake Arrowhead with my new front sproket & new rear Dunlop 606- yeah. What a difference with the new one tooth less sprocket on the FWY. The engine is now working to maintain indicated 70mph. I saw that Rich carries both the 14 tooth & the 15 tooth sprocket just for that reason & swaps them out as needed... I think I will do the same from here on out. View attachment 167934

    Adding more than one photo to a ride report!!!
    After attaching a photo file, "it" tells me That is the max amount of photos that I can load.
    What should I do to be able to load more photos so that I can complete my ride report???:huh

    All you can do is submit one less... or break the report in two. Either of those options kinda suck:splat

    Hey Bob, it only took you 2 minutes to decide! :clap



    I'm sure the rest can do quicker, but their response will be "I'm OUT"! :lol3



    Never been on this trail and I'm very interested.

    I have a feeling this one is not going to be a V-strom approved trail. I may have to appropriate another bike by then.

    Great to see you again Luke. Pretty crazy that we met last year in Julian when I stopped for fuel and then we ran into each other again at the Big Bear Ride.

    Small world...
