Random Pic of the Day (2)

I figured it was time to start a new thread. The original thread is just about 2.5 years old has 966 posts is 17 pages and has 32,128 views.

I like this shot of Kevin this past weekend so I will start off the new Random Pic of the Day.




Here is the link to the original thread.

Re: Random Pic of the Day (2)

Took this shot up at the upper parking area at Craggy Gardens (BRPW) earlier today... It was a steaming 90 degrees at the house... a cool 72 at this spot... The clouds were moving fast and the air was crystal clear and humidity-free.. Heaven... I sat on this wall for about 20 minutes taking it all in. a great day for riding except for the following...

Had a close encounter with a moron on the way home... I had gotten behind a string of 6 slow moving cars and they were so close to each other that I couldn't pick them off one-by-one so I was forced to wait for one of the few straights to make a blazing 6 car pass.. As we came up to the straight I backed off just enough to pick-up some serious roll-on speed rather than just punch it .. I rolled it on and just as I was about to pass the last car in line at about 65-70mph in 3rd .. he saw what I was doing, pulled out as if he was going to pass, then locked up his brakes to block me.... He actually came to a full screeching stop in my pass lane and just sat there looking in his rear view mirror. Fooking bastage. I had to utilize the bike's full breaking potential to avoid contact.... It was close... I came within 2 feet of his bumper...

After I was sure we we're going to touch vehicles I laid on my air horn and he just sat there a few seconds then proceeded on in a snail-like pace...I could see his wife or girlfriend slapping the shit out of him.. A few seconds later I successfully passed him and awaited for him to do something else stupid.. He never did.. In fact he backed off...

This type occurrence is the reason we'll never have a lane-splitting law here. These locals really take it personal if they are stuck in traffic and you make an attempt to leave them behind... I've seen these citizen implemented "forced blocks" a dozen or more times on the parkway and it's never pleasant... Getting angry doesn't help the situation so I just let it go... Ride on.

Yeah Jerry, I sympathize...we have some really stupid cagers around here, although I've never had a close call in 5 years until this last couple days, and I had two!

Another one from the archives, during an extended trip up into Oregon and Crater Lake in July '83, this one taken overlooking Usal Bay on California's "Lost Coast", a terrific destination north of San Francisco for the hot summer months,

Re: Random Pic of the Day (2)

Spooky times in the So-California high desert. A couple shots of the Blue Cut fire that devastated the Cajon Pass and neighboring desert mountain communities.



Western evening sky/sun blocked by smoke.


There could be some serious "mud-slides" should rain return this winter. Those hills are like a blackened moonscape.



I'm not the ghoulish type and have not yet rolled "Wrightwood". The spooky thing is I've often mused about the feasibility of living there while riding to or from SR-2/Newcomb"s Ranch.

Been riding the logging roads and kayaked some bogs looking for a moose.
This is as close as it gets so far.

Was a good day yesterday, saw a Bald Eagle and a moose.
Picture of the eagle will come later when I can get it loaded.
Not a bull but she was pretty big.

I rolled it on and just as I was about to pass the last car in line at about 65-70mph in 3rd .. he saw what I was doing, pulled out as if he was going to pass, then locked up his brakes to block me.... He actually came to a full screeching stop in my pass lane and just sat there looking in his rear view mirror. Fooking bastage. I had to utilize the bike's full breaking potential to avoid contact.... It was close... I came within 2 feet of his bumper..

This type occurrence is the reason we'll never have a lane-splitting law here. These locals really take it personal if they are stuck in traffic and you make an attempt to leave them behind... I've seen these citizen implemented "forced blocks" a dozen or more times on the parkway and it's never pleasant... Getting angry doesn't help the situation so I just let it go... Ride on.

It does not say much for the general level of socialization and grasp of pragmatic logic by your indigenous. This is the kind of reptilian brained, good for goose & gander, myopic minded, mule-headed stupid that gives such a stigma of boorish ignorance to southern and rural States.

Re: Random Pic of the Day (2)

Just going through some old pics and stumbled upon this one. The bikes are both Suzuki DR650SE. You can just make them out in the bottom of the pic. We were lost in a Karri Forest somewhere between the Yeagarup Dunes and Callcup. The track we came up from was supposed to have a bridge across a creek. Well it was there, looking up at us from the bottom of a blackwater creek, rotten to the core, and the track so overgrown it was swallowed up by the forest. Anyway, you know when you stop at a spot and you instantly feel you could stay there forever? Well, this is the place that did it for me. Its a very special, tranquil place.

Just returned from the Palm Springs area from seeing the big concert event out there referred to as "Old-chella" and saw Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Neal Young, Paul McCartney, The Who, and Roger Waters of Pink Floyd fame, a great show, and I was talking to a guy from New Zealand who handed me an election button I thought I'd share,

Go Keith!!!!

Love seeing all those beautiful fall riding shots. Here's what it looked like this morning in Helena. Apparently, 18 inches of snow fell just north of here. ......and so it begins. (This will melt off in time for our club ride this weekend)

Craig:

If you look real carefully you can see my zip tie in this pic it looks like it is right above the reflector. The zip tie is about 3/4 of an inch from the bottom of the fork. When the bike is parked me not on it there is about 3 1/2 inches of travel.

In this picture I would guess the forks are compressed about an inch - and most likely I was on the brakes - I trail brake through many turns to do just what you are seeing settle the suspension and yes scrub off ever so slightly speed.
