October Fall Colors Ride Oct 2012, GillaPunk Rules

UPDATED 11Oct12: VENUE CHANGE

Plan the fuck ahead for this shit!


2010 Fall Colors Ride Report
2011 Fall Colors Ride Report


Weather / Tree Color Dependent:
Primary: October: 19-21
Alternate: Oct 26-28


Camping will be :
VENUE CHANGE
Calaveras Big Trees State Park (Arnold, Calif)



Grover Hot Springs State Park, Alpine, Calif. <-- Campground probably closed


Foliage Report HERE (once its up)


The weather has been
and flakey as hell these past 2 years; hot, cold, rain dry. We will have a PRIMARY and ALTERNATE weekend for this event. IF Primary weekend weather is crap, will will go the ALTERNATE weekend.

This is 95% unorganized. It is a modified 'Farm Rules' event. No shirts, no pins, no food, no swag, no strippers.


This is not an ADV organized ride/event. I will not be there to greet you and hold your hand to set up your camp or your ride.


GillaPunk Rules:
No Trailers
No Mooching site Space

OMG. That ridiculous.

Shit. I havent touched the FJR (less oil changes) since her 36k service. That was about 13k miles ago. If I get 150k out of this bike before anything goes out I'm really going to have to question why I think BMW is so great.

Then again, without a doubt, the GS is the most amazing bike. EVER. No discussion.

Hey Gilli, May I make a suggestion. Ok, I will anyway. Groover Hot Springs at Markleville is a good spot. Great Camp ground, with Hot Springs, East side of the Sierras where the colors are much better, Hwy. 4, beautiful road.

interesting put me as a maybe, Ill have to request time off. Is this a street ride (do I need to put on street tires/gearing?) Im used to heading up around Nevada city for fall, but this sounds fun.

I remember at warped (2011) you said anything under 600cc was acceptable to trailer in, does that still count for this event?

Possibly in, if it gets bumped to the alternate date. I'll keep an eye on this thread and the weather.
