Sonoran Desert Ride - Photos

Took a hot ride out to Bartlett Lake today (see photo link below) to try out my Dunlop D606's on pavement. If it "cools" down at least 5-degree's I'll do a desert dirt ride with the gang in the next week or two. Stay frosty!

Yep, nothing like playing T.E. Lawrence in the desert!

"All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, to make it possible."

- T. E. Lawrence, "The Seven Pillars of Wisdom"

and more T.E....

"To explain the lure of speed you would have to explain human nature; but it is easier understood than explained. All men in all ages have beggared themselves for fast horses or camels or ships or cars or bikes or aeroplanes: all men have strained themselves dry to run or walk or swim faster. Speed is the second oldest animal craving in our nature, and our generation is fortunate in being able to indulge it more cheaply and generally than our ancestors. Every natural man cultivates the speed that appeals to him. I have a motor-bike income."

Sweet. I miss the AZ dez, but not the temps!!!
