...considering the weather right her in Helldale, my sentiments exactly Donkey dude...
I'm out too. Same deal as Donkey's...a pull down from northern Utah will cost me over $400.00 and 12 hours of round-trip drive time for questionable quality ride time.
Snow, ice and frog is not stopping everyone! Check out CBS 2 news
The two guys are Keith Rosendahl and Mark Ross. They are headed to DVDazes.
What are their screen names
Mark Ross I don't know his screen name.
Is Keith the ADV guy who built that ADV stove and tarp set up?
Yes, that is him.
Cold and wet outside, warm and dry inside! Ballsy too....
Arrived back "riding" from DV this morning after a night of rain and a morning full of mud, ice, gravel, sand, wind and ear to ear grins! Staying in Bakersfield tonight then a smooth twisty ride home tomorrow!
Never saw so many GS's & KLR's IN TRUCKS!!!!!!!:huh :huh :huh :huh
Some folks trucked down the small bikes (I understand that). Come on folks, I am a nOOb and I rode down it was not that bad! Well if snow/ice and high winds are not bad. The ride over was challenging and lots of "adventure" moments. Plus I almost crashed when I saw my first GS in a truck!
Anyway I took a metric shit ton of pics! Will start a ride report tomorrow or later this week!
Thank to all who bought stickers, I just recouped my costs, thanks! And I have a tiny bit left over for the playground here. I still have some stickers if you were not able to find me at camp.
I move to Maddbrit & Popey's site after a bunch of girls didn't make it
Cheer's to all and that was truly an adv ride! For some it was a ARV ride (adventure RV? should we start a site?)
Met cool people, eat good food, rode some amazing stuff, saw amazing views and laughed my big scottish butt off a number of times!
I just returned from a great trip. The weather was great all day Friday and Saturday. The rain came very late last night while we were sleeping and was nice this morning. Met a lot of new people and camped a bit with Mark and Keith. I even saw a couple more TE610s.
Hey now i may have trailered my KLR, but at least i didn't stay home with some lame excuse Next time i promise to ride... like a man should
Thanks for the great stickers
Come on let a wee scot have some fun!
Good to meet ya, glad you dig the stickers! It was a blast no matter how you got there!
Hey AngryScot and MaddBrit, thanks a lot for the early Friday morning ride to Stovepipe, it kicked off a great riding day despite the lackluster sunrise
I spent Sat morning driving the north road - many miles of thick fog, Scotty's was in fog but surprisingly Ubehebe was clear, but so windy I had to struggle to open the door and I left quicky for fear I'll start seeing raw metal if I stay longer in that sandblaster.
I think I busted a strut trailering the bike on the way back, I took a pothole in Barstow of all places, the bike was shaken violently on the trailer, and the strut became very soft, I could pull it down 3-4 more inches with one hand. Also uhaul trailers suck, the front wheel box does not have rolled edges and has eaten into my tire.
so did the photoshoot and raffle go off OK without me or Brian to ride herd on the turtles ?
Was great having you along! Every sunrise in DV is amazing in its own way, bit too cloudy that morning but I think we got some good pics.
:huh on the trailer...glad to hear you are back and safe...the fog was intesting for us too. made us ride faster as we couldn't see any scenery!
Not many folks but it seemed to go very well....I am now the proud owner of some wee metal gizmo for filling my GS in CA? cool wee reminder of the trip
Next time I think I am setting up a web cam and big foooken dish to beam the show live to all the poor folks that couldn't make it!
So I took off kinda early Sunday so I may have missed some folks for the decals!
PM me and I will get you sorted. Asking a bit to cover paypal and postage.
Those that attended get first dibs and if I have any left and anyone wants one I will sell off any remaining so you can look all tough and say you rode in the snow etc.......
Here's a little blues tune by Nixels.
