Welp, another long time no update…oh well not like anyone reads this thing anways eh? haha

Went for a nice ride on Saturday (7/19/08) afternoon/evening. Went out to go visit the leftovers of the GAP Fire….it definitely did some damage to the landscape =(

Here are a few photos that I took right off of West Camino Del Cielo:

Lots of charred territory….no bueno

I soon got kicked out of the area by the USFS, thanks guys! >.<

I then proceeded to ride out to Pendola ranger station, never made it though….’le sigh…about 7/8ths of the way there I took a turn going a tad too fast and slid out. I had it in a controlled slide for a bit and was about to recover, but wouldn’t you know it….a rock decided to pop out of no where! The rear tire hit the rock and I lost control of the slide, bike went down on top of my left leg and slid for like 10 ft. I was PISSED! As the bike went down i was saying “No No NO!” as i knew the handle bars were going to get all bent up. Well, they did….during my fit of rage and large doses of adrenaline I was actually able to bend the handle bars back into position about 1 1/2 inches. Couldn’t get it any further than that….damnit! Needless to say I rode back with a whack left side of my motorcycle, which facilitated the following list of repairs:
