Official "Behind the Redwood Curtain" BARF Fall Rally Picture Thread!

Here it is folks! Post up your pics. If you're in the rally contest, post all your entry pics - up to three of the locations - here, and we'll announce the winners next week. If you don't post your pics, you'll miss out.

For the rest of us, just post 'em up and tell the story.

Friday morning at Hattar, the group gathered. Adeeb and the crew at Hattar were incredibly generous and hospitable - and it's a great looking shop!



The Zen House in Point Arena, one of the location in the BARF rally photo contest. Note the Versys in front with the official BARF rally towel on the seat.

A closer look.



Don't have a rally towel? Ah, that's because you didn't come to the start at Hattar. Oh welll.......

The group gathering up to go riding Saturday AM after breakfast at the Samoa Cookhouse. Check out the LSMFT paint job on Lonny gixxer! Also note the LSL bar conversion. A man after Louemc's heart.



A BARF salute from the locals while Kyle looks on obliviously, dazed by the presence of a camera.



The crowd convenes at a scenic overlook on the way to Willow Creek. The place should have been kite flying central. The wind was howling!



The next time the camera came out was on Forks of Salmon. I saw a place to stop and grab a few pics as the group moved on. This road rocks! Miles and miles of incredibly exposed goat trail leading to about 20 miles of completely empty road that some say is, "better than Skaggs".



The road is barely perched above the river on a cliff side.



A look back at the road from a rock outcropping.



Fernando stopped to grab a pic too.



Definitely an intersection you want to visit.



Versys shows the way.



Tom getting artistic.



To be continued.

Crappy shot of Butch and Sara.



Mr. Cautionary Tale himself.



Duncan tipping it in.



Kyle searching for a shrubbery.



Lonny sharing his opinion of the photographer.



Once more for effect!



Bud and Barbara weaving through the woods.



Steve takes aim at the photographer.



And lets fly with both barrels!



Ian riding it like a rental!



There's always one. Every year we make a point of telling people to be sure their tires are ready for the rally. It's so tempting to think, "The rally is only a thousand miles. Surely I can get another thousand miles out of these tires." WRONG!!! A BARF rally will shred your tires. Count on it. Like the sun rising in the east, some things you can count on. Below, we see a tire about 150 miles from the closest possible replacement, and by the way, there's no cellphone service for the next 50 miles or so.



Better than Skaggs?! What is this heresy!?!?



Ian enjoying it.



Kyle and George.



George - who rode all three 2010 BARF rallies!

Saturday night at dinner, joined by many of the locals (no, I didn't bring my camera to the restaurant Friday night, and if I had and I posted the photos, I'd have to suspend myself! ).







Lookout Mountain vista point on hwy 36. BTW, hwy 36 still rocks the house!

Local hosts with Butch interloping.



Local hosts (Duncan, Rebecca, Keith and Sara) with Butch "disappeared" like a purged politburo member.

Rebecca's snorty Drizz (that thing sounds nice!)



Sara's rockin' Ruby.



Provide your own caption.



No, I'm not going home with Kyle!



Chrome, California? Oh, hell yes!



Planegray may be the greatest person in history, and his outstanding performance of the BARF salute supports that claim!



Buffalo!?!? Fuckin' A, bubba! Dave didn't believe me when I said I saw a two hump camel on Friday, so this time I stopped to take a photo.



Or two.

I arrived in Eureka.


Friday evening, the BARFers assemble.



Find the moto! This was off the Bigfoot Hwy (96) just outside of Willow Creek.



It was nice here. I found some shade and had a nap.
