What, was your jet engine in the shop? Holy crap!
Please explain that picture, that is good.
I was a local fuel hauler out of Bako heading up to bishop and there was this peculiar trail that would allways catch my eye just off the 14 about 8 miles south of jawbone...... So one day my best friend and I loaded up our bike to go do some exploring ........ My bike had no skid plate , no hd tubes , no aluminum hand guards and geared to the moon..... And so we took off and climbed up the mountain and down the mountain to another mountain and seen things we could only dream and we road trails that were so knarly we never wanted to go back threw them....... I was getting cocky by this time and climbed a mountain while my friend filmed me........he couldn't make it on his DRZ 400 so we pressed on deeper into uncharted territory and seen traile only moto gods were capable of doing....... It was around this time I fell and busted my clutch lever off and back then the guy who invented the rekluse
was still in college riding his moms outo clutch LT300 with his plywood top on the rear rack for his wheenie dog..... So I busted my clutch lever and now with a bike that idled at 20mph I had to bomb rock and switch backs and pretty soon I realized my front tire was flat....... My budy was having a hard time keeping up with me and fell a bunch and when I had a chance to yell to him from one mountain to the next I encouraged him to go back the way we came...... I decided to take a shortcut to a sand wash that opened up to jawbone canyon road........ Bad mistake !
But years later I returned with better skills to the area and is one of my favorite areas to ride ! Still very challenging and dangerous ! Going to do the special loop this Sunday ! Some like it and some think there going to die ! 36 mile loop, 2 hrs for me but have seen it take 10 hrs and road many bikes that day !
