Hope to meet a bunch of you guys in the future, Countdown as well.

There will be plenty of trails for you. You may end up getting a smaller bike once you get here. But I have seen guys with bigger bikes ride with us.

Are there any XT225's that hang with you guys? I moved here in Sept, and keep meaning to check in for rides, but buying a house and getting it up to standard has taken every weekend including the ones with snow in the air.

Yes, I was thinking of getting another bike. Keep the Dakar though - I have done quite a few long distance trips, have two planned for this summer. Up to Canada via Black Rock Canyon, and Central Oregon, head west along the Columbia River. Up the coast to the Olympic Penninnsula/Port Angels. Ferry Boat to Vancouver Island and head north. Take the northern most ferry to the Canada Mainland and make my way to Vancouver BC from there. Fly back to Hawaii for my month of work.

Then its back to Vancouver to get the bike - Ride across Canada in as much dirt as i can until I'm north of Montana - turn right and take the Continental divide rout down until I hit Arizona, turn right again and get back to Sparks via dirt in NV.

I ride solo, or, with other people on my trips. I have a great time!

Schulz rides a little sherpa with 14 inches of ground clearance. Mayne not that low but he usually leads the pack. Im on a drz 400 and im in the back. The point is it's all about the rider's ability. Come and ride. We never leave anyone behind.

I'm out this weekend. I ended up in TJ last night.

But!!!

Next weekend is KOM. Anyone want to carpool? I plan on camping either in a tent or the back of the truck.

Post Pneumonia Ride

Finally recovered from my bout of pneumonia and decided to test my new big bore kit out. Didn't want to come up north in case the motor decided to eat something....a little ride around the valley.



Should be some snow on Mount Rose....


We are going to be in a world of hurt this summer

Warning or challenge..........


Hopefully meet up with you guys at some point.

Hey..... Rob? Is it? And everyone. I only have two or three more weeks. Let's kill some miles. I drove home to TJ over the weekend. I wasn't sure when I'd get the chance next.

I have the whole week to get some packing done, put the new tank on the bike and make some roost. Let's dance.

Super Sunday Ride

Riding Sunday 02.02.14. Going to do another big Lyon/Douglas County loop. Leave from Stagecoach, and head toward Smith Valley, by way of Silver Springs, Weeks, Churchill Canyon, Mason Pass, etc.
Going to go through Desert Creek to Sweetwater, East Walker, back to Yerington(ish). More gas, then dirt all the way home.
Super Enduro/950 friendly if you don't mind a few peg deep water crossings. No ice or single track this ride. Probably 200 or so miles with 20 being pavement. At least 100 mile range on a tank. Might end up finishing in the dark if all goes well.
Leaving from my house at 10:00am. Plenty of parking. PM for address.
