It was good meeting everyone. It got a little damp on the way home, but not bad.
Count me in for next meet.

Weekend with woodschick and friends

Here's how I spent my weekend...


Tami and Eric invited me along on a birthday dual sport ride that their friend, David, has every year. I was far and away the least-experienced rider of the bunch, but I held my own and learned a lot.

Tami with her mean 610.


Beautiful Sonora Pass


Our group gathered next to the Benjava plaque


See daylight under that rear tire? Maybe...


Here's how guys with more experience and a bigger set of balls handle that... [yes, that's a Super Tenere]


On the way home through the delta, I found an open gate and went exploring some corn fields. Cool network of tractor trails.

Weekend

I had an equally nice weekend ride out in Mammoth Lakes area. Took Tioga over, rode 2 days, then back. JustPaul, and Nathan B. Weather was fantastic, riding was fantastic, and a really great place to get diverse experience.

Great pics Chris! Thanks for sharing. I'm taking my bike up to the logging trails near Donner next week. I'll post some photo's when I get back. Hope to visit Carnegie again with you in early November.

That's great, thanks for the update.

The hills will always be there, enjoy your time with the family.
