        Fun day...18 hours and 1044 miles in the books.

        A little sore, but no worse for wear today. Additional details to write up, possibly tomorrow.

            So....

            Submitted the application & photos for the Atomic 1000 today. That task is done.

            I'll get cranking on the blog update next. Yes, we were only there about an hour...but just driving in and out of that place - and seeing the stuff they tell you to NOT take photographs of...

            Heh.

            Yeah, I *know* what that stuff is there for.

            Neat ride - glad I was able to ride from New Mexico back home with zero drama. My wife is a trooper, and my whining (remember, no whining in LD riding, damnit!) didn't start until passing the 900 mile mark.

            I have *got* to get my wife used to hearing protection. After leaving the range, it was just the earpieces in the helmets, and I didn't find my earplugs (grrr!) Yesterday was a bit of wind noise in my head while -not- moving.

                I've *never* been a fan of the waxed ones. The last bag I bought (which is what I can't find...grrrr!) from W-M, and they were pink.

                Review: M6 Pro 2 In-Ear Monitors
                by kwthom
                Thanks to another rider on another forum for the idea.

                A couple of months ago, I'd posed a question on the LDRiders mail list about what the experienced riders do with ear irritation while...

                California "Five Passes" Ride?

                California Five Passes Ride


                I thought many moons ago, there was a 'designated' California Five Passes ride out there...might be five, might be seven - I just don't recall.
