Aussie is coming over!

Hi guys,

Just booked our first trip to the US for January 2014!

We are in California for about 3 weeks to do the usual tourist thing but have tickets to A1, Phoenix and A2!

Can hardly wait!

 

Cheers Aussie

Nice, should be a lot of fun!

Lock up your pet Kangaroos.....

Thanks afc, yes I plan on having heaps of fun! 

Krannie, I love kangaroos, actually ran over a little one with my CRF a few years ago.

 

Guys,

what is the go with tipping? Are there rules or is it unwritten? I dont want to get abused or people think we are rude sobs, We don't do it here in Oz

 

Cheers Aussie

15% for good service and 20% for exceptional. But, if the service sucks, don't tip. Have fun! If you come to Vegas, drop me a line. I'll share a "beeuh" (beer) with you.

Aussie...bring your gear and have Krannie take you out for a local Mojave Desert ride with the boys...you are welcome to use my bike. :ride:

Sweet

You guys are awesome!!

 

Thanks Bryan for the tips on tipping - I will use your advice.

 

CRF DOC - what an amazing suggestion, that would be absolutely sensational!! I don't think my wife would let me.

 

Very exciting!

 

Cheers Aussie

You need to convince your wife , I would not refuse that offer .

Yup, we have extra riding gear and everything.

Let me know what works for you and we will show you some CA dirt. 

Send your wife to the spa- a full days treatment. She'll love it, and you'll love your time in the dez. Once in a lifetime chance- don't miss it.

Guys,

I am humbled and a bit lost for words but as MorganM says its a once in a lifetime chance -

I would love to meet some TT boys and ride with them!!

Of course I would repay the offer and show them some Queensland dirt if they came here - I have a spare 450X in my garage

PM me, or others if you want to move forward, and still keep it reasonably private. 

 

It's still very dry out here, and mostly hot, so we have to pick the ride spot pretty much at the last minute, a day or two before, to find us the best weather.

 

What do you expect from the ride?

 

The California City area might be a good place to go to, cause there is a wide variety of terrain and distance choices.

Certainly not the most challenging riding area, but I like it cause there are two different gas stations about 50 miles apart from each other, so you can create a riding loop up to 140 miles and beyond, if you want.  We usually do 50-70 mile loops.....but we can do what every makes you comfortable.

 

What kind of distance / pace / terrain , etc are looking for, ...or are used to?

 

The California desert is either flat with whoops, or steep with loose rocks....and everything in between.

 

We have the 'Misfits' group of somewhere around 20+ riders, that allows us to have at least one or two (or 20..) riders willing to ride every weekend.
