« on: September 06, 2015, 10:52:41 pm »
OK people, post 'em up. 2000 motorcycles, people are bound to be riding them interesting places. Where did you ride your Super X today? Post a picture, date and location. Eatery, national park, bike hangout, vista point, whatever. GO!

Here is 1989 catching some sun on the edge of the helipad at Los Angeles County Fire Camp 9, 3000 feet above the San Fernando Valley, this afternon, September 6th, 2015.

I am really looking forward to my first 'real' ride.  1989 is one beautiful machine.  Must be a thrilling ride to the top of that escarpment.

1973 is being prepped for now

Good enough. What are you doing to her that's keeping you from riding?

All required upgrades, and maintenance.  Not to mention I can't seem to get regular work at home

I took 741 back through the Twin Oaks area for lunch on Sunday.  We rolled through the Walker Basin and greeted may other riders this weekend. And of course, the Super-X attracts bikers everywhere it stops!
Greg, I still want to hook up with you one day, you're only 40 miles away. Even if it's for a short ride and a quick meal.

Mike? Jumper? Pictures? C'mon, I'm the last guy in the world riding a Super X? Nobody takes pictures of their bikes?

I cheated on fixing 1525 today. I rode the Jennie to lunch and thought I'd take a little detour on the way home. The little detour turned into 260 miles.

Here she is chasing the San Andreas Fault, along Cerro Noreste Road in Ventura County.


And climbing Highway 33, heading toward Pine Mountain Summit, then south to Ojai.


Looking back over the Carrizo Badlands, from Reyes Peak Road.

OK, you get a pass (temporarily) because of the computer, though "dirty" is not an excuse.  :)

A dirty X is just a ridden X.

Here is watching the last glimpse of sunlight, reflecting off of 333's tank, in the center of the Mojave National Preserve last night.



Here she is outside the local Habit Grill, tonight.

Just riding mine to work. That way I can be happy at least twice a day. ;-)

OK, here is 333 at the California Aqueduct, overlooking the Antelope Valley, on my way to work this morning. If you look really closely at those mountains in the distance, 2CoolWheels is waving.
