Just a little time to get the ball rolling. A good turnout with 10 riders. Lots of good times packed into a sub-100 mi. ride.  More picks & to come......

Unfortunately, Daniel was the first casualty with a rock that had eyes, finding the gap between the skid plate and bars and connecting with the case.

Jim saved the day with his 'Johnny Weld' kit.

Great times, thanks for posting up this ride Uncle Champ, thanks for sweeping Wildwood ( right after you passed us I almost lost it ). Good seeing and meeting everyone. I'll post some more photos later.

Another thank you to Uncle Champ for posting this ride.  It's been so long since the last time I went on a SDAR club ride, I forgot how much fun it was.  I should get out on these more often.^_^

So you made it back, I guess the air stayed in your tires. You sure rode the hell out the V-ster today, nicely done!  I know those little sand patches are tricky, especially when you catch one in a blind corner. Big bikes are so much work, but they can get the job done. :dance2: Glad everyone made it through.  More good times

I would like to thank everyone for showing. What a good group, no supermen trying to impress, no bikes that broke due to lack of maintenance, just a good group of friendly folks.

To the big bikes I did not know the road was as rough as it was but it wasn't terrible, even if I had prerun it the day before I probably would have still gone that way.

The post ride at my house was good too, cold beverages, getting to know new people.

Just a great day, again thanks for coming everyone.

Charlie

Really great ride.  Gate open at bottom of Fred Canyon.  Don't give up on the African Twin, Daniel.  I see that alternator cover for $118 on Rocky Mountain ATV.  Thanks for organizing Charlie!

Damn, I missed the cold beverages. 😥

How was Deer Park?

Deer Park was loose & rutted on the switchbacks when you first start in from the top at Pioneer Mail. Susie launched her newish KTM into the Buckwheat off the side of the road & the bike ended up on her leg. No pic's darn it, minor rescue required. Lucky soft landing.

The way you and Daniel were riding it, I think you would have gotten through. That was about the worst of it.

Maybe when the weather cools down, Uncle Champ will host some more rides out in his neck of the woods!B)
