  1. Looks like a fun trip for me and Lisa.......RZR or bike (easy terrain for newbie rider?)
  2. Unfortunately I'll be attending a wedding back in VA........I'll be there in spirit
  3. Weekends only for me.......could possibly be talked into a shortish morning jaunt either Sat or Sunday........though we're scheduled to hit bars/bands on both Friday and Saturday nights so......
  4. It was a heavy afternoon yesterday as I was made aware of Arnie's passing and another motorcycle buddy, Morgan Langley, within an hour of each other (Morgan was taken out by an SUV on Palomar Mtn on Saturday). Passed on my condolences to both families and remain numb. We all think we're invincible. Sobering reminders that life is short/fickle. "Plan for tomorrow but live for today". Both of these gentlemen did just that. God speed and RIP Arnie and Morgan.
  5. Smart. That's why I dropped Lisa off at Motoventures and literally left the facility......no added pressure...... In terms of bikes, I wish I'd never sold the dualsported 230F I bought for my daughter........perfect height/weight/power with magic button.......we'll see if the 350 works out......it's a bit much for Lisa's comfort level at the moment......
  6. "Anyway, it's always nice to have your best friend interested in the some of the same things as you are." I agree with Tom..... I put my wife through Gary LaPlante's Motoventures course in Anza on a 125L. Borrowed a 125L from The Oracle so she could get a few more miles under her belt. She rode the 125L over to Oatman and back from our place in Bullhead City (~40 mile out and back). Then lowered my 350F-XCW for her to ride. She's intimidated by the size/power/weight of the 350 vs. the little 125L........we haven't made much progress since she "whiskey'd it" into my neighbors fence last Fall when riding around cones in the backyard.......waiting for temps to drop so we can get back out in open terrain (promised her we'd leave the constraints of the back yard)........she's had sufficient time to shake off the "fence kiss" and seems genuinely interested in giving it another shot........that said, I don't anticipate ever taking her on anything other than a fire road........which is fine.......plenty of great sights to see from easy two track.......
  7. Ha! I had planned to come over but it was pretty toasty and we were both a bit run down from attending the Padres game the night before......
  8. Wrinkles are straight lines that have been detoured/bent up into twisty fun lines
  9. I interned on a Dairy Farm in Tillamook in the late 70's (my B.S. degree from Oregon State is in Animal Science). Back then I was riding a 77' GT550 triple cylinder two stroke street bike.......very cool area.......haven't been back in ~30+ years........now I have even more incentive to return.........hope to spend at least a month or more tooling around in Oregon once I retire.......lots of friends to see/places to ride......just need the available time to take it all in.....
  10. Catch ya later Mtn Man
  11. Hated the Hybrid......couldn't stop it from spinning despite rim locks.......after breaking off two valve stems on ~$30 Ultra Heavy Duty tubes I moved away from it........prefer MT43 if using a trials tire.......I think a rear MT43 at ~8lbs would be the best choice for Moab......any knobby will work up front but the Fatty Golden would be my first choice....... Congrats on retirement........soooooooo envious..........I have ~4-6 years then I'll be taking those same long trips/rides........the beauty of those trips is they don't take a lot of $$.........just the luxury of available time
  12. Thanks for hosting us Mike/SDAR. We had a great time.....didn't realize I moved my fat head right in front of Lisa's in this photo.........guess I'd better not send her the link Great view/ seats
  13. Lisa and I will likely be there.......
