    Yamaha XSR 900

    This is the Tribute version of the 900. If I ever got a Street bike again, it would be on my " Don't know where I'm goin', But I'm goin' in style List ". Not exactly an Interstate bike. Enjoy the Ride
  2. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Lion_and_the_Mouse The fable in literature[edit] In the oldest versions, a lion threatens a mouse that wakes him from sleep. The mouse begs forgiveness and makes the point that such unworthy prey would bring the lion no honour. The lion then agrees and sets the mouse free. Later, the lion is netted by hunters. Hearing it roaring, the mouse remembers its clemency and frees it by gnawing through the ropes. The moral of the story is that mercy brings its reward and that there is no being so small that it cannot help a greater. Later English versions reinforce this by having the mouse promise to return the lion's favor, to its sceptical amusement.
  3. We never know what will stand out on our cruise through the park. Always something new. And so it was Thursday. Quite a sight as CID approached a smooth, hard left turn covered in a few small rocks, flanked by numerous cholla plants in full prickly bloom. One flaw in the setting must have disturbed the Dusty Man. One apple sized cholla digit lay in the middle of the otherwise perfect scene. A beautiful sight as CID laid the bike over, carefully sliding Both wheels across the hard-pack surface. The cholla located itself in strategic position. Undisturbed, CID simply continued his slide to a full 180 and reached with his throttle hand; having such control that he no longer needed the throttle. Lower and lower as he reached out to remove the troublesome cholla. Gracefully he scoped up the digit to push it away. Beautiful. These chollas have seen many pass by thinking to control or remove their troublesome needles. They are resilient, they fight back; they usually win the battle. None the less, a beautiful sight.

    Picked up a new leftover 19 CRF450L

    TMD Skid Plate with about 8k miles off-road. Also consider that the non-metal are silent compared to aluminum rattle cans.

    Antenna Upgrade for Baofeng UV-5R Radio

    https://www.hamradio.com/detail.cfm?pid=H0-011332 THIS OR SIMILAR - Will be better than the shorties . About 15 inches. Just go by Ham Radio Outlet and they will have a Diamond or Comet equal. Take your radio with you. I am assuming your antenna attaches the same as a Yaesu.
  6. With the Monster Tail Box handicap.

    Happy Birthday Rigger!

    Quite Celebration alone in the corner of a dark bar with Rhythm a Blues playing. 🎂 We are wishing you the Best
  9. BP619 YES, Diablo is ridable by bikes. Civics will not fare so well. See above with PMB on top of pile ( wall to wall )
  10. Thanks to PMB, SCM and Dwreck . For making the drive. Hard to decide what was best; All the Dead End Washes or the 30 minutes of Chill, Post Ride. No Traffic, No Drama - 78 miles
  11. SCM, you bet. We will just follow the magnetic impulses from Known Knowns to known unknowns. I will bring my mallet. Yep, Air in the tires and charging the radio. Showing up 0800 or earlier if possible. Finished planting two more umbrella shades: there are no fires or a drought, gotta go.
  12. Nice Moto Camp set-up. This is a guy out of Purgatory, Colorado.
  13. MacD tells us that Arroyo Diablo has a major Wall Fall, so we better go check that out at some point. I see photos of Conquerers at the top of the pile. Also, It has been a looong time since we have seen the rocky trail upstream ( beyond the highway ) of the Carrizo Canyon. If we survive the canyon, Hueso and View of the Badlands may serve as a distraction.. Hiking opportunities to stand in the middle of the Badlands and be amazed at how you got there. Other opportunities to include practice deep sand at walking pace.
