Bike rack

I have often joked, no mentioned that it would be good to put one bike on front and rear racks on a prius

I'm not sure if this was mentioned yet... The guys over on BARF are doing a ride down to SLO county next weekend, Friday-Sunday. Looks like I'm going for sure. Looks like it's all pavement, but there's a few "goaty" roads in there. I'm from SLO so I know my way around down there pretty well. It should be fun..

Laugh Funduro, Sheetiron, Eclipse ... ?

Hey all,

Been spending quite a bit of time up by Stonyford ... here's a pic of Cary racing with the AFM at Thunderhill this past weekend ... she and I were racing in their 250 Production class (thanks to Erich Stiegler of the Erich Stiegler Insurance Agency, who sponsors the 250 Production class and posted this pic on BARF):

Cary has the yellow plate and #888 is Jimi Mac ...

Anyway, we could still see lots of snow up on Snow Mountain from the racetrack on Sunday ...



I'm off to Deer Valley tomorrow night (group camp by Lake Pillsbury) for the Funduro, and to Stonyford on Friday and Ft Bragg on Saturday for the Sheetiron, and then hopefully up to Ruth Lake on Sunday night to see the eclipse ...

Want to see if I can find Sheetiron Mountain on Thursday or Friday, or maybe do the "Snow Mountain Loop" ...

Hope to see some ADV Riders on the trail!

@ Just Paul: Got the idea somewhere that you may have had a change of heart and will be doing the Sheetiron? Hard splits two-up on your KTM Adventure? :-)

See you around the campfire,
-- SFMCjohn

Yeah it just needs a lift!

We knew it would at least rain. temps were as low as 29 degrees @7,000' in PC and as high as 75 down in the valley. It was funny coming back down as it was pefect weather below 5,000'. We past some people coming up in Tevas and shorts. When I told them it was snowing up ahead they didn't beleive me. I wish I coulda been there when they got to the snow.[/QUOTE]

Good to see you're outside and defintely having fun. Great shots of the snow. Crazy! Hope to see you in the dirt soon on 2 wheels. ....hope that prius was a rental. lol

I FINALLY located an oversize tank (after a 2 year search... these tanks for a 2003 are UBER RARE) for my TE610. It's supposedly 4.5 gallons, although the previous owner swears he put 5 gallons in before with room to spare. I don't care. It's a factory part, so I know it fits. And it essentially doubles my range more or less. With the stock tank, I have about 90 miles of range. Now it's a viable dual sport bike. The older 610s had smaller tanks than the 2006+.

It looks like this more or less...



I scrounged up a white fender and some blue Husky logos, too.

Bummer, dude. Sorry to hear. I can't make it, either, although I didn't sign up.
