No factory rider here. Far from it. Just can get a little competitive when stoked up, :lol: .

Sounds like that could be me too, as I am not in the greatest riding shape at this time. Riding for me has been very sporatic lately. So there you have it, :thumbsup:.


What, you ride an L?:ride:

Just for info.

Most of the 100% legal riding in the area of the camp site is very mild. Think dirt roads in the dez. There are tons of trails, but a lot of the more technical stuff is of doubtful legality.

There is the possibility of some long loops 100 mile + loops. There are a few gas stations that are 100% green sticker accessible, like Joburg. There are some others, like Hinkley, that I have never had a problem with. (note only 87 octane at Hinkley)

I have a plate and I plan on at least one really long ride.

Anyone not been to the Burro Schmidt tunnel? That would be a good long one, and it should be green sticker-able.

Pink baskets, snuggling, rock chucking??? OK, the Agent 2 camp will be located just outside of walking / stumbling distance from the main camp. No fraternizing with the main camp after sundown, weapons will be manditory (pellet rifles, paintball guns, wrist rockets will be acceptable). There will be NO snuggling allowed.


Apparently this is turning into every Thanksgiving dinner my family has. :eek:

Looks like I'll be sittin' at the kids table....as usual.

Fine, we have more fun anyway :thumbsup: :D

Oh trust me, I'll be the slowest one out there to be sure, no bones about it.:thumbsup: But I'll be grinnin' ear to ear 'cause I'm gonna be out in the dez and ridin' :lol: :eek:

Let's see, a weekend of riding, camping, exploring (never been to the Husky memorial), meeting new people, campfire BSing, grilling, eating, and drinking.

I won't need to be fast to have a good time.:ride:

Go here http://www.burroschmidttunnel.org/ It's a worthy destination.

As the crow flies it's only 35 or so miles from the camp spot. Perhaps a good 50 or so mile ride. We could get gas in Johannesburg and I'm about 95% sure that the entire route can be non plated. I'll check the maps.

Thats a very interesting story behind that. I wonder what he felt as the last swing of the hammer fell!

I want to see it now..:thumbsup:

No, when I ride with just 650L guys I normally leave the 650R & CR250 at home and ride the TW200. That's all that's needed. :eek:

Would my XR650R's IMS 3.2 tank give me enough mileage between fill ups? I think it will get me around 65 miles. I can't remember what guys get with them out in the desert. Maybe I should get my Clark 4.3. fitted up?

At least with the TW200 you have an excuse.:thumbsup:

Actually, even with having my ballsy bikes that I enjoy so much, that little thing provides me just as much fun in it's own different way. :ride: It's my do-it-all, dual sport/pitbike, heh,heh. :lol:

I must say, your 650L looks sharp. That tank and rear fender setup makes it look completely different than the norm. Nice, :thumbsup:

:D

Makes me wish I still had the Hodakas. I could have brought out one of the old dual-shocked 100/110cc smokers for kicks. They were heavy and low powered by today's standards, but still tons of fun. :thumbsup:

Maybe I'll get the old man to come out on an XL175......nah, he'd rather bring his X600 that is a leaky, overheating pile of crap. :eek:

  • Thumpage

Posted March 11, 2008 - 10:47 PM


Some of those old bikes are really cool. I also like the old trail bike dual sport numbers like the Yamaha DT1 100s, Yamaha LT1/2s 250s & Kawi F9 350s. Let's not get started, I might start looking for one, :thumbsup: :eek:

Dude, don't tempt me. :thumbsup:

I've seen a couple (okay - all ) of the episodes of Bunny Ranch on HBO, and they's a couple o' hoochies there that I'd bang like a 'tard on a drumset.
