Joel,

I have it from a good source that you can get you e-start installed in Tahoe. I am going to ship mine up to have it done. Working oin shipping details.

Maybe after the JL class if a Tahoe shows up to school, I will send her home with an XR for the e-start install. I have permission from my to take some time after christmas and go to Tahoe. (She gets to hit the casinos while I ride around.) Haven't cleared any of this schedule with the Tahoes yet. Just a plan that popped into this n00bs brain.

I had a great time in Arrowhead with the FF's. This was a more technical ride than I have done in quite a while, and for the most part I learned how to handle it. Except for the 2 sketchy sections of Deep Creek where I asked for help from Vern . It looked doable, maybe after the Jimmy Lewis class...

Devils Hole looking so peaceful.



The lineup...Vern is ready



Then spafxr



The first section of the Rock Garden as you exit DH.



And the next section leading to the singletrack that punkenduro posted.



I loved the singletrack

I didn't grab my camera again until lunch time on Sunday. Overlooking the lake at Arrowhead Village.



Special thanks to Joel, Vern and Sito for providing the fun and assistance. Thanks also to The Rider, I think...

And to everyone else who rode ...BTW,

Joel, I'll trade you one pair of knee guards for a 40yr old ramp.

why all the ktm have to park in front?



If we have to 'splain it to you Joel, you wouldn't understand.

They get tired of eating Husky dust all day long, so they like to start out in front.

It's all a matter of perspective: from where I was sitting in the parking lot at Pioneer town, the whole group was missing, and I was the only one NOT missing...

Great pics and RR, Joel!

the last tuff rocky section...



eric badly wanted to ride my xr, so i let him....








pablo has the heaviest bike and the biggest balls, he rode the valdez like a man....



here's andreas following pablo's line and didn't have any issue



next was eggroll dressed up like vern



the rider took a more difficult line



jim and sean



paul wanted to challenge himself and followed sean




eric likewise preferred the tougher line






great, everyone made it safely...




being on t-6 bridge is a quite achievement fellas...



that was one long day of riding and unprecedented tough loop.....

we made it to the pinnacles in the dark....


i'm pretty sure all the intermediate riders appreciated the support we received from the advanced riders....



that was one epic ride...



some of us rode the next day (sunday), RR coming later....
