Well, how many miles of ST can you ride in a day? There's plenty for two for full days.....how glorious you ask? Very, much more glorious than anything I've seen in SNF.
We can trailer from V-town to the trailhead.....saves 100+miles of slab.

Anything else master JP? a ride back to Clovis?

here's a few sample pics

Whiskey is good, but if you like I can show you boyz some glorious single track you've never ridden, Only a few miles east of V town.
How far east of V-town? 100+ miles isn't a few. Is this the "green hill" you Sequoia guys are always talking about?

I'd be game but I've already got a weekend with my wife planned on the coast...

LOL....In. Looks like too much fun, I can't pass that up

Is this the 51 miles of ST that you mentioned in the sequoia thread? When you first said a few miles east of v-town I guess I took that a little too literal......I thought,.. if it's that close to Visalia, there isn't much of it The weather should be perfect Saturday for that area, hopefully not even getting over 80 See you guys around 8am @ the shop.

You girls have room for a fourth on your trip to the Green Hill? My previous plans have fallen thru and I'm available! Looks like good stuff for the KTM.

Will be trucking from Fresno, so JP you are welcome to throw the Dee-Arrr in the back of my truck to Visalia. I'm down the street from Monti, we can stop and gloat on our way out.
