Reno-'rump-Reno...Solo

Heading out tomorrow, start riding on Friday. I'll post up pics and start the "actual" ride report when I make it to Pahrump on Sunday. Returning a week from Saturday.

Here's a snapshot of the probable route. Cyan is southbound and yellow is northbound, although the two may intermingle a little in either direction. Red is an alternate route. There's a little "Cabin in the Rock" diversion outside of Mina not shown on this map that I might take too.



Riding right by the Flying M ranch where Fossett took off from. Should be interesting.

Wish me luck!

And thanks to all of you that have helped with the routes.

Keep us posted on your return trip times. Might come meet up with you and ride a day back up(if you don't mind a little company). Plus, I'll be in Bend for the AMA supermoto race at the end of the month. Might need your profession services .

Made it to the Rump. One flat (nail 7 miles from town) and 177 pictures. Epic ride. Working on a spotty internet connection here but will try to upload some pics and get the report started.

Planning the return trip on Saturday/Sunday/Monday.

Nice RR, recognize a lot of those places. That fenced dry lake is a bombing range I believe, some defense contractors had a couple jets and they would test systems out there.
