  1. Hey To all SDAR's, I'm Old and Back to riding after 9 yrs. Just wanted to shout out to all the Great riders who helped me out, during the dark days of 'The Broken Leg Ride' by Alpine 13 yrs ago? Paul Bowers, Bikeslut and All. I can't remember all the names but Thanks again, you Guys and Girls were Great. So, Just purchased a dl650 V-Strom and I'm riding with a friend to La Paz and then to Cabo mostly street and very light trail. No more trail or single track for me , Wife put the 'Break's' on that 'so to speak'. We will be leaving around April 1st not sure of exact date but no later than the 5th. We will be going through Ensenada, 3-4 days down, La Paz then to Cabo. Not sure of return date yet, maybe leave bike in La Paz at Friends place there and fly home ? So If anyone can join in on any or all of the trip you are more than welcome. Oh, friend is very experienced rider and will be riding KTM 1190 adv Should be a Great Adventure lot's of Fun, Margaritas and tacos. Peace, walker1 - out

    Cabo or Pound Sand...April 1-2-? 2021

    Thanks, Good to Be Back and Blessed to still be alive. I can't remember who told me on the night I broke my leg, my life had just changed? I'll never forget those words, how true. When I get back from Cabo, maybe I will be able to meet up and do a little off road trail ride and meet some more Great Fellow Riders. That's only if my Beautiful Wife approves. Then I will need another Trail Bike šŸ˜„ Life Is Good...Riding a Moto... Makes it Even Better!

    Cabo or Pound Sand...April 1-2-? 2021

    Yep, Good to be on a bike again! I've had a few bikes since the "Alpine Break" mostly street, but hat was 9 yrs ago. But no off-road... or serious trail.. And That was the fun part! Good to hear from you. Is there any one of the old crew still riding? Paul, bikeslut, Dig Dug, Joliet , can't remember all their names? Hammer?
  4. Thanks Dig-Dug! Since our last adventure, I've Dreaming of a "Big Boys Bike" Analyzing my Veritical & Limited Skills advantages & options! BMW R1200GS ( to big & $) vs KTM 990SE ( to Tall & $) vs Buell Ulysses XB12XT (to heavy & $) vs ?

    Does anyone Remember?

    Yes THAT'S It..... Thanks Doug.. One video shows looking down through the arch all the way to the canyon bottom. I guess it's a bridge rather than an arch.

    Does anyone Remember?

    Looking for the video of some rider going over an arch, then he proceeds to ride around the whole bowl that feeds down under he arch. Utah? One of those videos that looks like if he stops he'll fall all the way down to the bottom of the canyon. Just want to show the Wife where I plan to ride as soon as my leg heals.... On my New BMW of course....
  10. What you talking about Doug Iā€™m unemployed? Yes.... Congratulations Roger You Did IT!!

    Talking with Phil Linskens one of the Salesmen at NCBMW yesterday he happened to mention that the F650 GS was the only BMW that could run on 87 oct or reg fuel? Have not been able to find a reference to that any where else? Also.... they have an 06 650x, I think.... I was a little excited and could not take it all in, for $5995. Must go Back Today and punish myself some more....
