    And Now for Something Completely Different

    i took #ItalianMistressNo4 into the desert for the first time .... 6 hours of non-stop spills and thrills through the sandy washes, hard pack gravel, loose DG, mud bog tracks, and rocky crags of the Mojave Desert

    everyone went down (except for william), and/or got stuck in the deep, soft sand

    one fella had to pull out of the ride as he crashed and injured his elbow or collarbone and could not continue on, I hope he's okay

    i rode with a great group of guys, on the infamous "Beyond Starbucks Ride"!!! ✌❤️

    enjoy the pix i enjoyed taking them!

    absolutely no wind (this is a total rarity for this part of the desert)

    I mean half of that was freeway getting there and back but in between it was awesome!!!

    so you know this loop? it's pretty great out there .... it was my first-timer and it was pretty amazed and got lost as fuck when I got separated .... being on the back I pulled over to take a photo-op at the crumbling adobe house in the pictures above....so ... I'll never do that again without a proper garment GPS.... got separated and lost as fuck!!!

    just curious if you know that area .....that decaying adobe structure in the pix, is right next to some greenhouses which when riding by I thought a skunk sprayed/road kill but there are no skunks out there is that a pot farm?
