Hey Cosmo - It was good meeting you in Valley T. And thanks for entertaining me with Irondud (no spelling error) stories. Oops, gotta run out to the shop, lock-down my helmet and tighten my handlebars... :applause:

PowerCell,same here.The one thing I always seem to forget is my camera(s).We own three of them! If I could capture the images of the race,the people I meet and remeet I could fill up a room! It sure was cold out there! After that pit I went back out to rm390 on the dry lake bed to help out friends in a car.Then we went back up to rm530 just above Valley T.Stayed there till 5:00 am.Got into Ojos and waited till 8:30am then onto the finish.Wouldn't have missed any of it for anything! As for those pesky handlebar bolts,you may need TWO different size wrenchs!!

p.s. didn't see a husky all week...

A nice husky was rolled into paris on thursday and was put on stage so the adult entertainers could "ride" it...good times in mexico is all I can say!

The truck i was chasing finished at 5pm on about a long race for us but they wrapped up the championship so it was worth it.

Hey, if anyone wants to take me on a riding tour of the Baja course over the next four or five months or so, let me know. You can send a quote through a PM. I can't bring my bike from here, but I can bring some gear.

Cool. Looks like Baja Bound is for me! Maybe I can ride a Husaberg with an adult film star on the back.....

Just got home from the 1000... #307x finished 1st class 30, 3rd overall motorcycle.

Thanks to all our Sponsors-- Temecula Motorsports, O'neal, Precision Concepts, Maxxis, Baja Designs, FMF, there's more, thanks again...

We had a pretty clean ride, one little crash on the Mike's loop. We actually battled with 6x (pastrana-Grider-Johnson) for most of the race. They crossed the finish line ahead of me, but on adjusted time, we were ahead by about 2 minutes. The bad news is Pastrana's team was later DQ'd because their "rally tracker" (GPS unit that monitors highway speed, course cutting etc..) was missing.

This was my 10th time racing the 1000. By far this was the roughest, toughest course. Rocks, whoops, silty uphills, spectator traffic, cows, booby traps, spectators shining spotlights in my face for the last 200 miles to the finish, water hazard on the backside of a whoop, (hidden in the dark), I hit it doing about 75-80mph...lifted the front wheel, pointed my toes and held on..Soaked my right hand, boot, goggles...had to ride another hour and a half to the finish, cold wet tired....

Sounds like fun huh? It was... Everyone should try it...

p.s. didn't see a husky all week...

Thanks again to my teammates, Scott Meyers, Taber Murphy, Brian Pinard :applause:

p.s. congrats bajaboundmoto---4th OA motorcycle

Ron Wilson ---AKA surfnride

That sounds about right...

Just got back this morning. Watched the race around mile marker 255. Bell was still in the lead but 1X was clearly hauling azz trying to catch up. Saw 307X go by after 1X and was thinking &%$#@!?? How the hell could he be so far ahead of all the other 30 class. I think that was Brian Pinard (guy who dialed in my old 650R before I sold it). Awesome time and all you guys who raced you have my absolute respect. Tough tough course. I'll try to download some of the pics I got later.

BTW if any of you guys surf you should have headed to Baja Malibu after the race. 8-10 foot perfect throwing barrels all morning Sunday. Sick :applause:

Thanks for the picture...that's Brian..he got in near San Felipe...
as for Taber being 30, he's actually 32..

As for the sick barrels, I was very bummed driving home Sunday without a board....goin off everywhere, blowing offshore...
