I rode up there a few weeks ago, but boy was it smokey.... from a fire, not the pot heads, who also love it up there.

I will be riding for sure on monday. My friend just bought a DRZ400 and wants to take it out.

Had a blast up at mono hot springs. Kicks ass when you don't have to bring any food since there is a store & a restaurant there....I spent way too much money eating there, but I guess I don't need to be a cheapskate all the time.....Buffalo tacos, new castle & blue moon the first night, then the mono burger with a salad, and blackberry pie a la mode the second night.
We found a lot of good dirt riding around Edison Lake, as well as a few other places.....video to come...probably tomorrow


Bear Creek Dam










Edison lake


More Edison Lake


The awesome riding that occurs when Edison is really low =)


Mono Creek


South Fork of the San Joaquin River below Florence Lake (Hooper Diversion OHV)


Florence Lake

I love the Corbin seat Thanks again Perry, it makes all the difference in the world on the long multi-day rides.

Thanks Layne. Wish I would have taken more....there was the awesome food plus a picture worthy thong wearing female practicing her hand stands while doing the splits down by the hot springs

that looks like a great time. I rode strawberry lake and then bald mountain today. I have video but it is all looking at the ground in front of my bike. Need to angle the camera up more next time. My bike ran like crap the first half of the trip so its mostly video of me kickstarting the bike over and over. I was very jealous of the DRZ's i was riding with. Oh and the view from bald has changed a little.
