    and end up 8 pages behind, WTF. I was caught up Friday night.
    And thank you littlewan for bringing back the Boobie clip. I thouroughly enjoyed it again. Makes me :lol3.

    Hey redog1,
    I don't know how you knew, I sure didn't
    :lol3

    I knew because I've been reading your reports since 2009, The TAT trip, Summer of stupid (I think) I have never been disappointed. You guys do awesome RR's

    Thanks Matt and Kelly for the awesome RR! Your riding skills are eclipsed only by your ability to produce the most magnificent Ride Reports. Other reporters get all caught up in beautiful vistas and culture while you tell the tale of the ride itself. I somehow felt I was there too. If you were a novelists, these reports would be Best Sellers!

    Great report. :clap:clap:clap

    I don't read a lot of ride reports anymore. I'm glad I found yours and stayed with it the whole way. Makes me miss riding with others who enjoy both riding and writing (Gaspipe - you reading along???)

    Great report as usual. Looks like way to much fun. :ricky:ricky:ricky

    Your reports have been a major factor in trying the orange koolaid. Mmmm is it good. Now if you can pass along the paperwork I'll get it filled out so you guys can get your usual commission. :D

    Helluva trip, helluva report, helluva group.

    One question (well the only one I'm going to ask right now) have you folks tried the Tubliss system under these conditions?

    I've put it on both ends of my XR650R and it seems to work pretty well. Obviously not for BIG tears in a tire but not much will. And the little ones are super simple and quick to fix.

    thanx,

    4r

    It wouldn't be a Wan report without Little Wan cracking the jokes! I did think this report was a little light on the Ron Swanson references, but then you pulled out the big guns with the Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead clip above! :rofl

    Awesome report! Already looking forward to the next one!

    I'll add my thanks. You guys are awesome riders and Matt (with a little help) did a great job on the report and videos. I'll definitely keep my eye out for the next great ride. :clap

    Thank you all so much for the kind words and praise, it's a little overwhelming, but very appreciated.

    Thanks also to all the lurkers who read along. I know there were a bunch, the views on this RR were pretty crazy for a Baja RR.
    I am a lurker at heart, I understand.:lol3

    Thank you LittleWan for making me do this RR and for your help with maps and editing. :clap:clap

    As for what's next, I don't know, but it probably won't be a RR. :rofl
