So due to no panguich ride I got a phone call thursday from BrianT asking If i wanted to ride to Cali. Sorry I didn;t post, it was kinda last minute. Slejor ended up going because he was at my house thursday night. Anyway we left Vegas at 945 Fri and headed to Barstow. Slejor rode I had the GIxx in the back of the truck with TMAC. We met Brian and took off. We were going to Cambria and the Wind was horrible. After we got through the freeway stuff we were looking forward to HWY 58 through the mountain. UNfortunately 2 turns in Slejor hit some loose gravel and lost his bike over a maybe 15-30 hill. Thankfully he stayed on the road, just the bike went over the hill. It looks lilke mostly cosmetic damage at first glance. Anyway we called TMAC who was taking a different route to the coast and had her back track to come load the bike. All said and done an hour or so later it was getting too dark and cold to go through the mountain. So we went a different way. Anyway Saturday Brian and I Rode up HWY 1 to MOnterey and then back to Cambria. About 120 miles took us almost 3 hours. It was beautiful though. Riding with the ocean on one side of you and the mountain on the other is Frackin sweet. That rode is awesome as long as you dont get stuck behind drivers that dont let you pass when the oportunity presents itself. Anway Slejor hung out with TMAC on Sat and we rode back today. All in ALL a good trip, no injuries which is the most important thing. Unfortunatly Slejor has some work to do on his bike but that is easier to fix than body parts. Pics to come when BrianT gets them in his COMP. Again sorry I didnt make any phone calls but it was extremely short notice.

"2 turns in" sounds pretty lame. But yeah, that's pretty much what happened. 250 miles of a side wind that knock our bikes all over the place, and I drop my bike when the fun starts.

I'm completely fine. Not a scratch on me.

That happened to be my inaugural run of a new pair of Alpinestars SMX Plus boots and a pair of Joe Rocket leather pants.

Maybe I should apply to test gear and destroy bikes for a living.
