Currently chilling at Rio Grande Village with dead electrics. No good deed goes unpunished!

We had a blast yesterday at Santa Elena Canyon. Man, I can't imagine being in the same spot again in August with the heat.

:sun:

I hope all is well.

Back home, painless journey except for the traffic jam on I30 10 minutes from the house. Thanks one & all for a great line, would have loved to spend more time riding and less time wrenching but I certainly put the A in ADV this weekend.

For some reason the edit button has gone...

Obviously that was "great time" not "great line" which was referring to one of my jokes at the Palupa last night!

Great meeting up with you guys at the Rio Grande village/tire repair station. I was the guy on the DRZ with the air pump.

Talked to Richard on the road today.

He will start a ride report thread either tonight or tomorrow.

I will include the tale of me leaving a tire spoon in the rear Maxxis tire and riding both the Desert Challenge and the Adventure Challenge with it in the rear tire until it flatted me in Marfa! :eek2::eek2::eek2::eek2:

Nice to meet you also. Come ride with us sometime....

I just want to thank Richard and everyone else who helped organize..i had a great time and met a bunch of good people. I also want to thank Charles for letting me tag along with him and Dawn Friday and showing me around the national park. I want to do it again next year and also participate in the adventure challenge. Only thing I will do different next year is trailer the bike. The last hour of my 500 mile ride home today was painful.
