Sidecars in the Carrizo Plain Nov 16, 17 & 18

Setting up a trip to the Carrizo Plain the weekend of November 16 thru 18, 2012.

I'm trying to get a bunch of sidecar riders together for this, though two wheeled ADV riders are welcome.

Camping at the KCL campground. Farm rules. You bring your own shit, eat your own food, drink your own booze and keep your own junk running.

Please reply here if you are interested. I will be posting this on Soviet Steeds too for the local Ural guys.

If I get my rig back together by then, I might ride out. I love it out there.

I did. I sold two this last year & blew the tranny in my GS in June. Got a new-to-me tranny a couple of weeks ago & am going to start the install today.

Mr G.

THANKS for the heads up!

After Griffith Park Rally I took my bike to a VW car show locally and my clutch is TOAST! Just got in some of the parts. But probably wont have time to work on the bike much in the next month. I am dealing with some of those once in a lifetime family issues that has taken over my life for the time being. Plus my first Grandchild is due,
So Momma has made it clear what I can and can't do for a couple weeks. 99% of the time is my time. Well at least I like to think so.

Should be like last time, though more rigs and lots of 2WD Urals (including mine)

From the last hack camping trip to the Plains, June 2011

That is the same weekend as the Baja 1000 and I'm committed to be crew for Terrible Herbst Motorsports.

Where are you getting your weather info Don?

National Weather Svc. now says high 40's at night and low to mid 60's during the day.

They are now calling for 40% rain all weekend which may be a game changer for me. I don't have rain gear that fits and I don't enjoy riding in the rain.
