yep, the desert from Mammoth Mt ski resort to Nevada n back in a favorite, lots of riding out there, but seasonal snow is now the issue, Death valley would be a place for the winter

No but really I hope it heals properly to prevent permanent problems ya no.... My right foot still gives me problems from hitting a rock years ssss. ago.

I definitely need to go riding!...I didn't ride 2 weeks before LAB2V & then only rode 3 hours of the whole thing & havent ridden since...I contacted Milla Jovovich & got the anti virus to the T-virus and so my zombie foot looks like human foot again.lol...then in my dreams we rode off into sunset on her beemer from the 3rd movie and lived happily ever after.

Easy ride saturday

Looking at the forecast, Saturday looks good for an easy dirt ride......I'm just thinking of riding around pine flat, big creek rd, sycamore springs, maybe nutmeg saddle to see where the snow line is......leave late, home early 10am-4pm'ish....anyone?

Your zombie foot may make it easier for me to keep up!

Yes, mileage estimate?

Have fun on Sat, I'll be at work. If the weather forecast holds I'm thinking you will find snow.

Went for a ride today to break-in the new front tire and my new handlebars before the snow comes. Rode up Jose Basin rd. to the Old R-R Grade road just past the penstock. The road was closed due to a crew replacing a large culvert. Turned around and rode up Musick farm rd. and then down old Tollhouse rd. Nice 72 mile loop to clear the cobwebs.
