    What? Burp the fuel tank. Charge on the trickle charger. Maybe try some octane booster??

    “Mrs.motochefarwi” and I made the trek down from the East Bay on Friday. It’s always a battle of endurance on the I 5. 447 miles one way to Panamint Springs Resort. I guess it is one way to wear in the fresh rear tractionator. It behaved nicely on the tarmac without a hitch. Yup they are noisy, but that’s what you are going to get in an ADV tire. I was wondering how it would hook up in the dirt. It was @jasonr fist visit to DeathValley. So it was pretty cool to take him on a route. Jason rode up from Yuma and I think he trailered up about the same distance as us? We decided on riding through Hunter Mountain, Tea Kettle Junction, Race Track, and Ubehebe Crater. It made for a nice loop and then lunch in Furnace Creek. Jason,Eric, Richard and Warren were a fun bunch. Weather and conditions were perfect, can’t ask for more. Check out my tracks in Rever below. I highly recommend it if you like to use your phone. I have been using it for some time now and it keeps getting better. I joined up as a Premium member and use it for every ride. You can post up pics and share your adventures. Just another tool to make our rides more interactive. Enjoy the video, it has been some time since I put one together. Hope to see you out there next year if you haven’t been! Special thanks to XLADV, CORVA, and all the sponsors.

    It was a great ride Eric and we had a blast didn’t we! It felt really good riding this weekend. We all have these moments where it just feels good. Company was good, plenty of rest, weather was impeccable, and the Bike felt good. A bit dusty at times, but the trails were really good. I’m flattered at your comment. I’ve been very fortunate to ride with a lot of good riders and learn from them and they have helped me get better. The cool thing is you never really stop learning when you come out to these events.

    I finally have the Motoz rear tractinator installed on "Oden" an R1100GS 96' with about 96200miles on her. Well let me tell you this ol beast sure loves "new shoes". I commute daily and it has been a blast on the tarmac and twisties on with these new Motoz tires. The rear has such a large foot print for a 17" and it really feels good on the corners. I guess my next question will be how well it hooks up in the dirt in DV. I am a big fan of the Kenda Big Blocks and also the D606's so i'm curious how well they will behave on different terrain. Maybe I should be posting this on the review section later! All this bike prep is part of the the Adventure right? Last night a complete gearbox, final drive and Mineral oil change has been completed. Now to pack my tools, food and essentials.

    Yup, lots of folks may not see all the “pre-work” that goes into your events. “Hats off”to you and harvesting sponsors AND for a good cause!!!

    Hi Eric, interesting point. I have heard some other fellas are heading down to Baja later in the month so I’m guessing time off is a premium. May I ask is there a breakdown of where each dollar is going to? Ie. Accommodations, CRVA, etc. I know the original included meals. Maybe everyone is not clear? Just a thought.
