    Nice guys!

    Even though Echo was worse than I've seen in two years, its still easy peasy as long as you stay on the gas. You can go left middle or right, makes no difference, and don't let off the gas until you clear the upper corner. :freaky

    Hey Sally, nice to see you off that clown bike this year! Although I have to say the 450 still looks small under you.

    Day 1 for me, I stayed in Panamint Springs on Wednesday night so I could avoid an hour+ of pavement on the knobs as I did the Saline/Lippincott/Tea Kettle/etc deal.

    [​IMG]

    I originally wanted to do Hunter, but that was quickly squashed by my weak sauce snow skills.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Back out to Saline. I've got some good video going up Lippincott, but it will be a bit longer before I get that completed...

    [​IMG]

    Ultra redneck GoPro mount and new helmet since I forgot mine. :doh

    [​IMG]

    Top of the hard part of Lippincott. Wait till you see the group of GS guys heading up there fully loaded. :huh

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Some twit asked me at Ubehebe if it was dangerous to ride in all the wind in the area. :huh I just told her I'd rather be on a dirt bike than one of the silly cages...

    [​IMG]

    Typical crater shot.

    [​IMG]

    My goal was to make it to Eureka Dunes, but I started running out of daylight and the candle on the front of the 450 is utterly useless, so I stopped for lunch and then turned around. I love this type of solitude and these shots.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I'll get the video edited as soon as I can and get it here so you guys can laugh at me falling in the snow... :lol3

    Good to see so many of the guys I remember from the "aughts" still out there doing it! Parked up the KLR and been taking care of my non-motor human Twins for the last four years, but still like to peek in and get a sniff of dirt every once in a while.
