You guys are too funny!  So the Donkey made that?

 I have to say, though, those beach pictures look pretty enticing and I'm lucky to have been to that very spot.

Good times with Larry!

And a bit of a story... A few months ago I posted on TT asking if someone local to San Diego had done the Triplett fork mods and the Fox shock upgrade so I could test them out before I jumped in. A few members suggested I see Larry and so I did. Twice. I returned last night from two days of riding about 130 miles with Larry, Armando, and Rich.

Now, you should know that I rode a motorcycle once about 35 years ago and then a year ago Rich convinced me to give dirt bike riding a try. A few months into it I wasn't sure if I was ready for either a ride in baja or the fork/shock upgrades. After spending time with Larry on the first trip I ordered a shock through him (he did the prototyping for the shock and is a dealer) and then I also sent the forks to Bruce. Both guys were/are incredibly accommodating, especially considering I know beans about suspension. As a novice rider I did not think I would notice a difference. WOW was I wrong! The bike handles so much better! I no longer have to slow down and/or avoid every hole and obstacle! Its what dirt bike riding should be, for me at least. I also upgraded the seat to a Seat Concepts no-slip, extra comfy seat. I highly recommend all three upgrades for anyone seeking a smooth ride with tractor-like ability. Thanks to Larry, Bruce and the fellas I was able to hold my own through the basics of middle-of-nowhere riding and loved it!

Some pics...the first one is Larry with the shock install at his place. The terrain varied a bit but I don't have pictures of the single track bushwhacking which was was pretty cool. Next time!
