No smog test on that tent either, I see it's a 1965

Roundstock and I did a day trip to Toroweap yesterday. 200 dirt miles. Lots of rocks, sand, ruts, and a lava field.

Remember to not crash in the lava field.

Let me know of specific plans and I'll make arrangements to come up. Still want to do some exploring in central NV. Utah has so much to see as well, beautiful country.

If you haven't found this thread check it out. He rides out of St. George, covers a wide swath of countryside with his reports. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=725976 However I have a hunch he would have trouble keeping up with us.

Chris - Looks like he does a lot of cool exploring in that part of the world. So much to see!

Todd - I'm sure you can keep up.

Yeah, Todd rides that GS like a dualsport. Oh man.

I thought Tim was joking when he mentioned last week doing a day run to Toroweap. Wow.
We should pencil in a couple of possible extended weekends and make some route plans. I'm pretty open, lots of vacation time. Most of the guys will be gearing up and practicing for la-btov in Nov.

RR due from Spa, hwy 33? I wasn't sure what he meant.

There are lots of good routes on the Sierra western slope too. I keep saying I want to ride up to Mountain Home State Forest. Won't be too long before snow flies up there though.

2-stroke Show in GG yesterday was so-so. A few cool bikes, but a lot of dumpers, and the new venue is not nearly as nice as when it was at Cook's. It was hotter than hell as well.

I'll be one of those guys, 1st 2 Sundays of Nov will be staging from Adelanto and riding towards Red Mountain and there abouts.

Looks like me and Mrs. bigtodd are heading up to Big Bear this weekend and staying at a friend's place. I will most def be exploring some trails/roads on Sat afternoon and Sunday morning.

Maybe some some of you FF's up there?

Almost 300 miles on the K1200GT up Highway 33 to Reyes Creek (use to be called Scheideck) just off of Lockwood Valley Rd.




The new owner took very good care of us. He's been trying to build the business back up after a couple of the past owners slacked off.. Let me tell you, I didn't need to eat the rest of the day from being too full ! Food was good.

The ADV crew has a ride and camp to this place in December. A bit chilly at that time of year. We could meet some of the NorCal crew that started and still run ADVrider.com .......

Started to get warm inland so headed over to Tepesquet Canyon on the 166, to Foxen Canyon. Stopped in a couple of the winery's. Did not taste or buy anything though.

Came back over 154 into Santa Barbara. I wanted to check out Elings Park above the Marina area. I've been looking for places to fly my RC planes and gliders. Turns out the park was taken over by people training to fly these paragliders.




Had a nice cold beverage on the beach then headed back home. Must of been hot in L.A. because there was a ton of traffic on the 101.

A lot of miles and a lot of fun!
