Pics from riding in Ocotillo(Imperial county), CA. Got a good 100+ miles in today. Getting up at 4AM kinda sucked, but it was worth it.

It was about this narrow for several miles. I was really happy when we made it out of there.

Only a couple times that day. It was about 90-95 at noon and the air cooled monster didn't like it. Though, if I kept it out of those rocky crevices/canyons and above 30mph it was fine.

I want to reiterate this, a few of those crevices sucked. At several points we were forced to get off the bikes, put them at a 45* angle and push them through a tight spot with a rock jutting overhead.

I was kinda bummed when I lost my side panel. I hit a rock jutting out of one of those walls. I barely pulled my leg outta the way then the thing explodered. No more side panels for me.

funny thing is, my dads air cooled bikes never overheated, not even the 2 strokes, its just so much colder over here it never gets the engine hot, even at crawling speeds my xr ran perfect.

I used to love to putt around with my friend with my baja. Now with the YZF it's like impossible. It just always wants to go!

You've obviously never experienced all 350CCs of pure awesome that is my bike :P Also, it's 90-95 out, and it's on the verge of winter out there. I've only been out there one time during summer, and it sucked. It was at or above 120f.

You first have to sell your Mojave!!! Hell, why don't you just go out and buy every make and model out there?

I've ridden a KTM 125 2stroke. It was surprisingly easy to ride, and it was really fast. Remember though, parts and service is way more than other bikes.
