[QUOTE=Cpt. Ron]Yup, that was me. The only oilhead, and the only guy in a one-piece Aerostitch on a GS ride. But a hotdog? I was thinking more of a noob.....



I don't know about noob-CJ and I were both pretty impressed with you getting the oilhead through the ride.

I think I spent about 2 weekends, and rode about 200 miles of trail to decide on which routes to take the RCB group on. It's always hard to know who will show up and what their skill level will be. There was a lot more riding around Bridgeport/Bodie that we didn't include. We'll have to all get together with L2L and do another weekend. How about we do a remote campout?? Not only do you have to ride all the jeep trails we can find, but also have to carry tents/stoves,food,SNPA, etc.?

Well thank you for the compliment. Now that I've got an airhead, there's no Let's-bring-a-Dakar-race-truck-to-run-the-Sheetiron-Syndrome.

Screw SNPA. Not that I don't like it, mind you. It's just that bottles break and they're heavy, and then you gotta haul them out. I can brew up 2 5-gal batches of my homebrew. And, I've made racks to carry the corny kegs. I just might need someone to carry my underwear and toothebrush. Rough roads might not be too kind to the beer or bike, however. That's a lot of weight for an airhead (especially with my lard-ass on it).

Or, have someone truck the beer in.....

That sounds good to me as long as I get a king size bed and 3 pillows - motels are cheap in them there parts!

A week after our 2-up dual sport adventure I thought things would be back to normal. As the wife and I are discussing where to ride this past weekend, I assume we're going somewhere on the R11RT as usual, but she says ... we could take the KTM and find some new dirt roads.
Hmmm, I think she likes it!!

2-up ride for Mrs. L2L?

Judy and I rode up to Downieville for breakfast this morning. Decided to ride from Goodyear's Bar back up to Allegheny and take the GS hard-way ride from last year's RCB outing. Ran into snow drifts trying to get up Henness Pass Road so after pushing through a couple, but finding our way blocked, retreated to Forest City and then took pavement to Allegheny. Went down Kanaka Creek Rd and crossed old bridge near 16:1 mine. The next steep uphill was rutted and muddy, but was able to go around outsides and get to top of the ridge.

Headed down to German Bar, much more rutted and muddy than last year. The last 1/4 mile or so was covered in water running from a spring or something. At the Yuba River, what were calm pools last year is a rushing torrrent this year. Looked like the river had been over the rocky section of road before you start back up to Graniteville Rd. Quite a bit of deep standing water around the rocks. Luckily the long uphill climb out of the river is mostly exposed rock, so with 25 psi in rear and two-person load, GS climbs like a goat. The upper sections were muddy and rutted in places this year.

After seeing the Yuba, I didn't want to try the crossing at Poorman's Creek in to Washington, as it was washing over cylinders last year and there's gotta be twice as much water this year. So went down past Malakoff to Edward's and home.

Beautiful day, didn't pass a single vehicle anywhere.

Hi L2L, my mother in-law lives in Yerington right around that cluster of trees in the for ground post #16. I was down that way a couple of years ago and I was wondering where the hell that trail went thanks for the write up.

We went throught that cluster of trees to get to Mickey Pass. It's called Weed Heights if were on the same page. Next time your out there, Mickey Pass is worth a look.
