Wow- can you imagine driving or riding when that big boulder came across the road?? That would be a high pucker and undies change moment for sure!

Always enjoy your vids and pics Ken! Keep em coming.

Hope to have my RZ back up in about 2 months. Engine is out and rebuild will soon be underway.

Ken, you should put a fairing on that bike. It looks cold.

Well, I don't know about the bike, but the ride was a little cool that day (for here). Mostly due to the wind.

I actually have the Spec2 fiberglass full fairing for that bike but I don't think it will ever go back on. Someday it will get a facelift (maybe :smt012 ).

I was chuckling a bit on on the ride up to The Junction today because it was cold, and I was expecting to be cold, but...grip heaters (never really used them before, turned them off after a short bit), and I wore my first gear suit (first time) with freeze out under and I was extremely comfortable. A little too warm when I stopped at The Junction.

The Junction.

Mines Road on the way back saw deer and a bobcat on video if I get to it.

McKean and Bailey

Out in Timbukfukntu by Calero where my son got left turned last Fall. He was going the direction of the Goldwing. There's a car going the opposite direction stopped on McKean waiting to make a left on to Bailey. My son thought since the car was stopped he saw him. Nope. As he got closer to the car it took off right in front of my boy. He had to turn hard left to avoid the car, clipped it a bit, and laid it down. Bike was totaled. He had full gear on and slid quite a bit with no major injuries. The bike and gear was all paid for. He is still "settling" some medical and pain and suffering. Scared enough to stay off bikes maybe forever.
