    Thanks guys for spotting me 200 pounds of bike so I can keep up.... Barely :wink:


    Thanks John for guiding us out to the Husky, and Mike for taking us through that Ridge Route route.. :huh I'd never been on that before.

    So when I get home and shower, it is lights out for me. Didn't get enough sleep the night before to properly ride the big bike. 5 SEs, 1 525 and a husky.

    Eating at my favorite breakfast place, Tommies in Castaic.
    [​IMG]

    Best part of the breakfast is those onions cooked in with the hash browns.
    [​IMG]

    Final staging area where we find out that Ktami wasn't going to make it.
    [​IMG]

    We stopped for gas, noticed by bag was loose, turns out the front nuts on the bracket had come loose.
    15 minutes later and we were moving again.
    [​IMG]

    We knew this day would be good & lucky and all that when Nowwhat was blessed by this...
    [​IMG]

    About to hit the power line road.

    The fairing on this bike actually doubles the speed of the 950SE, proof provided later.
    [​IMG]

    We were the only customers in this entire strip mall.
    [​IMG]

    Besides drinking more than the usual amount of gas at $4.50/gallon, the Super Enduro also eats one of these every 5 days.

    Finally made it to the Husky Monument.

    Guys coming out of a fun sand wash. I had an experience in there that may have been caught on video, will have to check that soon........

    I somehow managed to get 2 pictures at this jump...
    [​IMG]

    Ok, give Nowwhat a hard time about not having a center-stand.....his bike seems to fly higher than the others.
    [​IMG]

    Final stop for gas and Spafixer is off to look for his iPod that fell off just a little bit earlier and we notice Dunerat has a rear flat.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Nowwhat also noticed the top speed on the GPS (so it is official and all). This speed was no doubt obtained on the dry lake bed.
    [​IMG]

    Great group of guys, 1 flat out in the dez and 1 at the most convenient spot ever.
    Congrats TravelToad on your 10th anniversay of riding, glad I was part of it.
