4-10-15 Christmas Valley Ride.

Post by Sandblaster » Mon Apr 13, 2015 4:07 am

It's a little early in the season for a Oregon desert ride as you never know what the weather will be doing.
But, sometimes you gotta roll the dice and see what you get.
Headed over the pass Friday morning..

Loved my new fat tire set up.
Can't wait for some really loose sand..
Over all I had a good time.
I think next month will be better...

Time to head home..
