    Bubbles had the best idea to get the HECK out of the city madness for a couple days, so we tossed a couple dirt bikes in the shop truck (thank you Club Eagle Rider) and disappeared to California City. It's a short drive from home, so we took very minimal stuff (and beers)

    Found a big fire pit to call home:


    Is was a perfect high 80's with a cool breeze:


    After riding around for awhile it became clear these were our only neigh-----bors Thank you thank you I'll be here all week!

    Cal City is an old defunct housing community development so there are a ton of graded roads. They suck because they're sandy but because of the desert bloom we had to go see if theres any occupants in the turtle sanctuary:

    Didn't see any turtles So we got off the road and got back to camp in time for the first of some FANTASTIC sunsets!



    Ya, I know they aren't Buells The WR250 is the one I'd get though. Super light and torquey enough to get this old man going up some hills. The TTR125 was a little small for Bubbles, she's a little new to 2 wheels in the dirt, but she took to it really really well!

    Technically Mojave desert. This whole dang place would be a desert NJ, if we didn't steal so much water from Colorado haha

    It's a truck Sdrxb12s, LOL Just a beater for hauling bikes, but it does burn out really well!
    You need a passport to get into the states from Canada? I thought just a DL would do it? You Canucks don't start **** like us Americans do

    Holy amazing riding, batman!...I mean, Cooter! Wow, thanks for sharing! Just when I thought riding in Illinois couldn't be more depressing I got to see all those lovely roads & scenes. uhg. I'm looking forward to taking my XB back to Wisconsin, at least a step in the right direction!

    That LED lit airbox looks pretty damn cool, man!

    My friend is selling his El Camino, it is in perfect condition with no rust, I am pretty sure the milage is in the 20K area, it's not going cheap, I think it's a 1987, so here is your chance.

    FINALLY! Cooler heads prevailed and realized that riding solo on a motorcycle, in full gear, on a race track, in the middle of the bloody desert, is pretty safe from virus madness. They opened Chuckwalla so 3 of us went to shake off the cobwebs

    The Elco-illenuim Falcon does such a fantastic job of hauling these around and it sure turns heads when the bikes in the back are worth twice what it is, LOL. #Priorities
    I hadn't ridden the EBR in anger on a track since the low-side/high-side so I was a little slow to start

    Very happily got to chase my buddy around on his new R-6 Is there really anything better than this?
