chris, i think "they" are trying to keep mammoth and june lake as 1 attraction. this sign is new, and according to a ranger, it is easy except for a few sections. i rode many of that sections and with my skill level, i can do it on the 640 with company. if you've done death valley, - south pass, goler, mengel and chloride cliffs are more difficult.

more areas to explore




a little bit of snow left
















think i reached the end of the road




97 miles in 1 fill up and with 1/2 gal still left (2.2 gal oem tank)



it was a nice ride, constantly moving on a steady leisure pace. there are sections that are tough, and certainly more challenging if i was on a bigger bike. the rekluse was a very good addition, it improved my riding significantly and gave me better confidence.

i would love to do this ride again with friends and new acquaintances. yes, mammoth and the surrounding area have a lot to offer; great destination in the spring, summer and fall. lots of campgrounds and next to the trails.


see you on the trail.

yes tom i would like to think that way. i'm still dealing with the lack of engine brake coming into a corner or going downhill. the first 2 rides were a nightmare, then my neighbor adjusted the play, it feels much better now, though i still need to take it for a ride and find a steep downhill section.

also thinking of adding a lh rear brake.

no sense of going back now....will have to adjust my riding style (or lack of it) to the new set up.

july 4th ride

today, can't work in the garage when it's 100F, anyway, cooler here in the den and what else to do....


july 4th ride to newcombs/wrightwood

the benefit of getting up early



obligatory pic - price of gas on a holiday



jim (spafxer) was on time for our 8am meet




this road just begging us to twist the throttle....







on angeles crest




taking a short break at the parking lot of newks




on our way to wrightwood




one of the 4 tunnels we went through








it has been years they're rebuilding that road. good short cut to san gabriel valley




without this gas station and with a small gas tank, i will never make it back




headstaller and spafxer in front of our favorite breakfast joint in wrightwood




happy birthday america!



at 10 AM @ 6K feet elevation.....kinda warm isn't; i could be worse at....home.







dammmmmnnnnn



more bikes showed up



take note: the mountain side often times is littered with rocks and debris



unless you're a professional, both hands on the handlebar at the corner and don't take pics.....







this place still empty








back to newks for much needed refreshment before we head down







leather jackets in the summertime......; but you can't beat good protection



to stay cool and still with decent protection, i wear a pressure suit underneath my mx vented mx jersey, plus vented pants and light duty riding boots.

hope you all had a great holiday weekend.

cory, pretty much it is a road bike now. took off the 21/17 and replaced it with a 19/17 from woodys + street tires. it also lowered the bike and now i can touch the ground.....

having this in your backyard, i can't resist riding even at 100F....
