So should I add your name to the Noob Ride? Though if you've already got a KTM and single track skills, I bet you'll do just fine in the dirt with the BMW. Welcome aboard!

I can't let you go for a ride without some scratches/dents/cussin'/etc!

Probably meet at the North Fork Chevron. Nate is bringing a few friends so I will probably take my own truck. Are you trucking or riding?

Sunday Ride

Doing a bigger bike ride on Sunday, meeting at Blossom Trail Cafe at 7AM. Headed Trimmer to Big Creek to Rock Creek, popping out at Tamarack and then 168 back over to Old Rail Road Grade into Jose Basin and back into town. Any noobs doing the ride next month with big bikes, this will be in the same general area and have several fire roads, twisties etc.

i rode with a friend all around bald mountain and brewer lake, then i packed a bag and then rode in to meet some friends who were camping at mono hot springs. Swam and hung out with them and left with just enough time to get back to the trailer by dark. Video is downloading. Here are some pics. JP was my inspiration for the one with flowers.
