    West Harrison ride last weekend. Took a wrong turn at the log sort. Great fun. C5D0B816-2860-459B-99C7-7D5A921F259C.jpeg 68F0565B-3716-4C34-8E59-886BD13A5546.jpeg 849C7A12-60C1-4BA3-8241-3179869AD41B.jpeg D73AB56C-04CC-4760-A5C4-AEEB8F9CAB94.jpeg

    I've spent a bit of time into the last few weekends hanging out with some side-by-sides. At times it reminded my how lacking I am in talent. But managed to make it to most of the places they did. This weekend I was stopped at a long climb that was really loose shale. I managed to do a real number to my clutch so I guess it's time for a new one.

    The burnt clutch is nothing compared to what happened the ride a couple weeks before. I went on a really muddy rocky run with these guys and managed to dent my header, damaged my LH footpeg mount, lost my kickstand spring and cracked a crash bar. I'm sure there's a couple small things I'm forgetting, but that's the way she goes. It was an expensive few weeks.

    Last summers one day out and back to my favorite part of the high Sierra in CA 600 miles in the saddle. Worth every moment 009343AB-7AF9-4F10-B870-F8997F26FC57.jpeg

    The loader guy was laughing his face off and taking pics. If you stuck to the loader wheel tracks it wasn't too bad...
    Yes, beautiful country. IMG_3591.jpeg IMG_3606.jpeg

    A sight for sore eyes for some of us stuck in the dry, desert summer.

    Highlight of a fun dirt road in the Texas hill country. Ridden on my AT DCT.

    I was riding a back road in the Texas hill country on Saturday when I spotted this fellow eating grass next to the fence . Of course I had to stop for a photo. While taking the picture I thought to myself, "I hope he doesn't take exception to this 'cause he can probably knock that fence down without much effort." Luckily, he just ignored me and continued eating breakfast.

    That scene with the buffalo reminds me of an incident of a motorcycle and a brahma bull. My '72 Kawasaki H2-750 triple was parked next to the fence at a local outdoor rodeo. During the bull riding session the brahma bull had bucked off his passenger and was running around the arena looking for something to stomp while the pickup men tried to chase the bull back to the pens. The bull came to a screeching halt at the fence by my bike...hoofed up the ground and did a couple of mock charges at my bike...then was chased back to the pens by the pickup men. The crowd went wild as the bull appeared to want to mix it up with my bike.

    Beware, Trail Boss...your Africa Twin handlebars may fool that buff into thinking he's encountered a challenger...LOL! But your guy there looks pretty peaceful. My bucking bull was already pissed when he saw my bike.:lol3
