Panamint Springs Resort.......So a guy walks into a bar.....

This is my second visit to PSR....both thanks to Mr. Hall...   I just wanted to share how awesome the team at PSR is.   The photo above is a Tiger 1200 laying down with a holed oil pan, somewhere near the bottom of Saline Valley....see the close up below of a "bash-plate-fail".   The crinkled corner of the bash plate damaged the oil pan....and hopefully not the crank case.   So....these guys roll in around 8pm
....they've had a long haul back to PSR (couple hours), and need to go back with a truck,
....they explain their dilemma to the PSR folks and what additional tools they need for a long night of repairs,
....a few minutes later, a nice bearded gentleman shows up with a grinder, hacksaw, and extension cord,
....and says, just bring them back when you are done, let me know if you need anything else.   I look forward to going back.




RawHyde California Adventure Rally in Panamint Valley, California

I dropped in on RawHyde's California Adventure Rally this weekend in Panamint Valley, CA. The camp looked like a great group of people and a nice variety of bikes. This was the first time I've rode 2-up on the dirt...needless to say I was a bit nervous.   After a couple hours of riding and getting used to the weight and getting a feel for the bike, 2-up was actually more fun than I expected.....I was planning to be a nervous wreck the entire time riding 2-up. I was able to cruise quite comfortably, passing Jeeps and kept pace with solo folks riding at a nice easy pace. The worst part was not being able to stand up freely, but it was fine. I just stopped and took a stretch brake more often than I normally would.   We had a great time, no spills, the Tiger 800 performed great, and my girlfriend didn't have to sit at home wondering what I was up to.   A few photos of the rally are below:
