Black rims with red hubs on your desert sled… Nice choice, T2.

Thanks Bryan looks like your crf is running the same set up. When I picked up my XR she was totally stock except for the over size tank. She had been crashed and neglected but had a strong motor. I got her for a song and a dance then droped about $3500 into her. The wheel set was originally more than I wanted to put back into the bike but I am so glad I did now.

My girlfriend has a plated 2001 XR250R

I had an MV Agusta. Awesome road bike. I got it at a police auction for 300 bucks. I wish I had it still! Now its four wheels only.

I just added this Trail tech Voyager GPS dash board unit on big red. The thing is bad ass. I now have a temp gage, tach, speedo and altimeter. You can import gpx ride tracks I love this unit.

Sharp looking supermoto Pud!

Dee ee:

The first pic of the XR is at Corral Canyon OHV area. It is located east of San Diego near Lake Morena and Pine Valley off Hwy 8.
The first 2 pics in my second post are in the Big Bear area. The 2nd one is on a trail that drops from Crab flats campground to I believe Deep Creek eventually ending at lake Arrowhead. The 3rd is in Bishop. I glanced at your above link to your trip report on adventureriders.com I look forward to actually read it. I just bought my XR back in August and it took me a liitle bit to get her dialed in. She needed some love! I am all about this dualsport riding thing and want to do some bigger, longer rides like the one you did. I am constantly looking at maps, roads and places to ride with my new buddy Big Red. Going to explore Ocotillo and Anza Borrego for a few days over Thanksgiving with my girlfriend. If you ever are putting together a local (SO CAL) day ride or even a bigger ride and have room for another rider please let me know.

Zoom Splats. they go zoomin down the road then they go splat. I love bikes and I love watching Moto GP but I do not think I will ever seriously ride again. there really are only two kinds of motorcyclists. Those who have been down and those who are going down.
Rideing at all fast at night is complete russian roulette. You really do outrun your headlights pretty quick. An owl swooped down and picked a mouse off the road in front of me once. Only going 70 but would never have had a chance to avoid that one. We simply missed each other by luck. I have dumped it at 110 when I burned a hole in a piston and high sided. walked away with a broken collarbone and two sprained ankles. Hitch hiked to the hospital. I thought it was a pretty cool crash. My best friend crashed, burned and died a few weeks later....

Some folks are lucky, some ain't.

Motorcycle horror stories are a joke on the tellers imo.

Fear is the real crippler.

Willow Springs, first weekend of June 1983, ARRA Box Stock qualifyer, going into turn 7 wide open on my Katana 750D and booom! The front tire blows. No SHET!... at around 120 or so.... what a slide. Bike went flying into the desert and I all the way down some 200' almost into turn 8. Luckily there was no one along side or behind me.


Got many other slide for life at over 80+ stories on GPZ550's and my other Katana, the 1000, PUD. But as you posted, gotta be luck or just fate.

My Katana 83' 750 was soooooooooo bad ass...
(Borrowed from the web!)


As were my three GPZ 550's...

Maybe if we lived near a real track my friend would still be alive? Street raceing is real bad but even if you are a conservative old fuddy dudy your going to get squeezed out by a truck sooner or later. if you ride a Harly you will most likly end up obease and croak from a heart attack..

I had to look twice, but that woman doesn't seem to be wearing a helmet and I'm wondering if she ever crashed riding in that position.

Ah.... Bullshet!
Jay Springsteen still going strong at 55.




The dude is still a legend at the track, whether on the VR1000 or XR750.

Let us not forget old Scott Russell running the HD (Prod # 36) VR1000:
