He still has the KTM, but he likes the 610 more in the dirt.
We might be selling the KTM soon, as we need to make more room in the garage

Day 2

We woke up to sunny skies and no fog so we were out the door pretty early...


The granite up here just never stops...


Wish I could say the same for myself...


This skid plate has served me well. So has the rear tire, apparently :teeth



Eric is really digging his TE610...



Arrgh...this was much steeper than the photo lets on, and I spit myself off the trail and fell into the tree to the left of the bike....



A different angle. You can see the nice brown dirt exposed beneath the rocks that were flung off the trail by what was left of my rear tire...



It was getting pretty warm, what with all that Husky heaving going on, so we decided to make our way back to the swimming hole we'd found the day before...



That little trip involved some relatively intricate route-rinding and we were happy to hear the water long before we saw it...






These perfectly round holes were everywhere, although most of them held water...




We spent the entire day at the swimming hole before reluctantly packing up and heading for home...

I'm heading up there too. It's been a long time since I explored that area.

Actually, I don't post near as much stuff here as I used to. It just gets buried in a day, at least it does in the ride reports sections, anyway.

I'll be posting some stuff from our anniversary ride pretty soon, just gotta get it together into some sort of order. Here's a preview...

Where was this swimming hole? It is not Emerald Pools, is it somewhere on the Yuba?

Tahoe Adventure Ride FYI.....

FYI.....

I did find some interesting info about the Tahoe Adventure ride......

The guy who's organizing it will give some very good prices on the hotel if you come as a group 5+ folks. He also will give you a break on the event with the more people you bring.

If your interested in going just call the organizer, he knows it a little pricey and seems to be willing to help the rider community.

Early registration ends today. $250 seems a bit pricey but $300 sounds worse?!
Fee includes all access to the following:
Saturday evening program with legendary Dick Mann
Nightly admission at MontBleu Opal Night Club
Vehicle parking including motorcycle corral, car, truck and motorcycle trailer
Admission to manufacturer and vendor displays
Welcome cocktail party
Afternoon beer and b.s.
Morning coffee and doughnuts
HQ Bar post-ride cocktails each evening
Friday night beach BBQ dinner
Ride route maps of area
All educational seminars
Souvenir T Shirt
Rider goody bag

Agreed - I am a procurement guy and I can't make those numbers add up. Considering what we got last fall at the KTM rally and such, I'd expect similar costing.
