I'll trade you my OLD PC for that OLD Blue bike of yours!

VR I would go look at my bike, but I left the key to my GS in Idaho. Other than what Kurt said, and what is in the HOW on the reset I don't know. I'll go look for my spare key and see if I can be of more assistance.

Hello,
I am a long time advrider who happens to work Friday and Saturday so I miss out on most rides.
Looking for those who might be interested in rides and camping leaving on Sundays

This would mostly be dirt oriented rides. I ride a large dual sport and know many great locations to camp after a great day's ride.

PM if interested.

This thread needs some riding action!

In June Eric and I staged out of our friend's place in Pioneer with the intent of finding a dirt route from HWY 88 to HWY 4. We didn't actually find what we were looking for, due to a case of temporary myopia on my part, but we had fun playing around in the mountains. It also happened to be a weekend when a cold front was blowing through. We dealt with lots of fog and cold temps on the first day...









This road was more well-traveled than the previous ones, but it was apparent that these forest roads were pretty lightly-traveled...





We ran into our fair share of this stuff...took a few photos before dismounting to help...



Getting mine under was much easier. Like my bald street tire? Eh, it's only a rear...



Eat the world...



I picked up this furry friend after bushwhacking through some fluffy greenery...


The fog was beautiful on the ridges...


Nice little pond...



Lots of downed trees dropping down into the canyon. Got tired of going through/over/around them so we turned around and scouted another route...



Sometimes being forced to re-route can bring unexpected rewards...



Guess what? Another downed tree re-route...



Awaiting my turn...


Love the way the roads are numbered up here. Thank you, private logging companies!



More on the way...

I already digested it on BARF. Great trip! Hope you and Eric make it to Creek Monkey, I gotta ask you some questions about it.

Anybody going to Tahoe Adventure Bike Weekend?

Just wondering if anyone's going to 1st annual Tahoe Adventure Bike Rally?

Early registration ends today. $250 seems a bit pricey but $300 sounds worse?!

I really like the idea of it, but the price is way too steep IMHO. If it included a room at the hotel for 2 days, now we're talking. You still need to find lodging on top of the $300. I know a ton of roads and rides in the Sierra... way to many to justify spending the $.

I hope the event does well and that they are able to refine the cost a bit.

Can you folks please not quote an entire post just to say something like COOL? Especially if you include the 17 photos?

Just delete all but the appropriate line of text (or single photo) and comment on that. It makes things much easier to read and is considered good nettiquette.


Thank you. :)

Yeah, the whole things a great idea but not to include lodging for that price is WAY over the top. I'll go see it and meet up with some folks, maybe do the non rider deal and tag along on the rides. I'm all for supporting the community and I know theres a price to be paid but this seems like someones making out like a bandit.
