I'm a free agent, no nibbles on the bait in the water yet, brother in AZ says come on out and let's do some target practice.

Weather looks decent - anybody want to talk me out of it? I figure out on Tuesday, there Wednesday and Thursday, home on Friday.

Anybody want to talk me out of this one?
That's the combustion chamber of the turbo shaft. It is supposed to be on fire. You just don't usually see it but the case and fairing fell off.

 - Wildcat Canyon
 - 78 East
 - 86 North
 - Box Canyon (from Mecca)
 - Joshua Tree National Park
 - 62 East

In case it's not obvious, I am not trying to talk you out of it. Joshua Tree will be gorgeous this time of year. Watch out for moving boulders (aka tortoises) in the road.

I'm thinking the wildflowers are about to pop in Anza Borrego due to the rain.  Should make for a scenic ride.  I was out around Campo today and everything is really green.  :thumb:

That is a rather strange post dated four (4) years ago...???  Did he go?  How was the trip? 

Is this all just "Deja-Vu?!?" :rolleyes: :shocked: :huh: :laugh: :grin: :wink:

Wow, talk about flashbacks - I don't even remember back that far!

But while I know I did not make '21 or '22, I think I made every ride before that. I did my once a year "before it gets too hot/cold run to AZ to see family out there.

When I find my logbook I'll let you folks know.
