Saw the Dr about fluid accumulation in my knee.... Its all surface, no ligament damage, predinasone to help the fluid get off faster. All good.

Took a good look at my rear rim last night ... Put a good lookin bend in it. I'll have to start keeping my eyes pealed for a used rim :p

Good to see they cleared the trail in the last two or three weeks
looked like a tornado went through there, someone worked there tail off clearing that mess.

It looks like I will make the Kennedy Meadows ride in August. I am not sure if I need to make my own campsite reservation or if there is a group site that is reserved that my Xr and I will fit in.? Any thoughts there. I will be driving in to the campground,so I can help bring things if needed.

I will bring my own tubes this time as well.

The camping at Troy overflow is free, there is plenty of room, too.
JP and I are riding in, we might need an extra pack mule, thanks for the offer.

Looking forward to meeting you at Kennedy Meadows. Don't worry about the firewood. I will bring enough for all of the Central Valley DS riders that show up.

Question

Is anyone riding this weekend? I'm thinking about riding over to the green hill again to do some more exploration of the area.

Mike, last year I tried some cheap tires on the 640, Sedonas I think, ruined the feel and handling on that bike too.
Those cheap tires could end up being very expensive...
