Round The Bend 2018, Ride Reports,

Thanks for putting on a great meet up. Me and my father met up with some friends we had met riding earlier. My father rolled over 10,000miles on his 15 KLR650 and I have around 73,000 miles on my 08 KLR650. We rode Old Ore Rd., East & West River Rd, Maverick, Hen Egg, and Black Gap. I lost my rear break pads Thursday. So I over nighted some from California. So I was back up and going Friday evening. Had a small wreck on an easy part of Black Gap which slingshotted myself past my window which I caught with my foot and broke the window off. Other than that it was amazing riding and weekend.

This ride report doesn't make the fact that I missed it any easier. Glad everyone had fun and is still in one piece.

Re: Round The Bend 2018, Ride Reports,

Thanks JT & co. for putting together another amazing Big Bend trip, every year it gets better & better.

I had much fun with the no-pressure ride Friday although Pete said it best, "River Road Adventure Bike Carnage!" Saturday we did most of the old Uncle's Challenge route & arrived back hot, tired but very happy.

The meeting of the groups:


Proud new Papa:


Old Ore Road:


The 500 breeding program has been highly successful:

Re: Round The Bend 2018, Ride Reports,

I've abandoned the Leica D-Lux entirely for the camera in the Google Pixel II. The Leica has perhaps slightly stronger colors but not enough of an advantage to want to carry both anymore. There's also a somewhat flawed but very effective B&W app for Android called Lenka which I used to take these at the cemetery.

All cropped in the camera, no post-processing.

Re: Round The Bend 2018, Ride Reports,

I lent a bike to a friend, who dropped it many, many, many times. When back on tarmac after riding River Road/ Black Gap/ Glen Springs, I noticed the tool tube was missing.

If anyone picked up my PVC tool tube with tool roll inside, please PM me! Thanks.

I called the Presidio County Sheriff's office today to get clarification on this road. From what the woman who answered the phone told me, the road beyond the gate is in fact private property and the road is a private not public road.

The creates a problem for anyone wanting to do ride along the river from Presidio up to Chispa road and loop back down through Valentine and Marfa and then down Pinto Canyon. That's too bad - it was a really nice loop ride.
