MLK weekend 2019 Trip Report

Recommended Posts

MLK weekend was great trip. Although the sand was a little damp, it was still pretty good duning conditions. We got a bunch of fun rides in and had a blast. The weather was perfect all weekend except for Sunday night. It got WINDY. 

 

Friday night smudge pot action

Sunday morning we had quite an epic run going until I found out my rear hub bearings decided to go south. We stopped out near the south end and hung out for a bit and then I limped it back to camp.

Luckily I brought my dirtbike. When the buggy is down, it's always good to have a backup ride.

That night our friends, Steve & Becky, cooked up amazing dutch oven feast. We grubbed and celebrated Steve's 60th birthday. They had lots of good dune stories from back in the day.

Later in the night, we sat out in the dark taking pics of the eclipse and listening to space themed songs on Spotify. haha It was pretty damn cool! I grabbed a handful of moon pics and put them into a sequence photo collage. It was a perfect cap to the night and badass weekend.

So @dunefreak I figured out the issue with my bike and why I couldn't turn worth a sh*t!

 

Checking everything. Bearings, brakes, bar position and just a full once over.  Pulled the front wheel off and went why was I able to squeeze that tire so easy. Ahhhhh fk I never checked the front tire air pressure. Checked the rear but straight up forgot the front. Was rolling on a flat front all day like a n00b!!!!!

 

Dee Dee deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!

That was night time at Comp right?   I'd love to see the video from when they were coming back in to park and your man said "keep goin!"  And they blasted through and went back for more.  That was so great!
