    Summer is here-NIGHT RIDES ARE BACK

    Lets just say Mike can be a little.......................reckless? After fuel and beverages in Kearny, we headed back toward Florence. Lotsa dust, fast jeep roads, and only a few hazards. Mike found one. He went into a turn too hot(I'm speculating here) and locked up his back wheel just before launching off the road into an 8 foot deep 6 foot wide drainage. He landed downstream of his bike a few feet, on his back. Bike was upside down. It took 4 of us to hoist and heave it out. Although, in his state of confusion, he actually tried to ride it out! He was lucky to still be able to speak and move all 9 fingers, thats for sure......

    That must have been a spectacular get-off.......I will post the picture when I wake up. Still clearing the dust from my eyes/nose/ears/ass crack etc........You certainly were lucky to walk (limp) away from that with only minimal damage to you and the bike. It was fun and we will get another one in this summer, but a more technical ride this time......

    Looks like my son wants to ride as well. He is a c rider and he will be on a small enduro. So, that means no nasty rocky shit , just tame desert jeep trails and hopefully some monsoon action......meet at the minit mart in Florence. Dirt roads to Kearny and then maybe to winkleman and back across the desert via 96 ranch road. Bill, this is right up your alley,you in? How bout 7 PM meet? Aaron, if you like, you can buzz to my place earlier and stage from there......email me.

    Does that mean you will ride if we make it Sat? That may be better, because I am pretty sure Uranus is going to look as big as the moon that night.....I read it in an email forwarded to me.......

    back road to Crown King: mileage?

    Dude.....how ya been? I think it is about 20 miles from where we used to stage, somewhere back there by the west end of the lake. Going by yourself? Is wolfguy gonna join you? Bring a few ounces of oil in a small bottle and get a gallon up on top so you can explore a bit while in the pines....
