Hi Super Suz,

Thanks for inviting Nathan to speak at the OMC, and for inviting us to attend; we loved his talk and your food was great!


Nathan after riding 600 miles in 36 hours from Death Valley to get to the OMC in time to speak at their Wednesday night meeting ...




The patch Nathan wears while riding his "postie" ...

Nathan was so popular at the OMC, he was invited to attend the SFMC's meeting the next night, in what turned out to be a well attended audience to hear about Dot's exploits ...



Some pics of the 2004 Honda CT 105 that Nathan has ridden through 19 countries, here: http://caryandjohn.wordpress.com/201...hanthepostman/

Between the OMC and the SFMC we passed a hat and raised a bunch of money for Nathan's "Ship-Dot-Home" fund, or "The Dot Rebuild Fund."

Thanks again to Super Suz and to OMC!
see you at the fountain,
-- SFMCjohn

Cow Mountain

Went on a loop up to Cow Mountain a couple of weeks ago - SF to Ukiah, Talmadge Road through Cow Mountain over to Clear Lake, Old Toll Road back to the 101.

While in Cow Mountain I decided to try one of the intermediate trails (Trail 11 if you know the area). I'd been on the beginner trails before and they were pretty easy on my KTM990. Pretty stupid in hindsight. It was nearly 100 degrees that day, no one was out there, and if something had gone wrong I would have been in deep shit. The trail was really steep and rocky, with very limited traction. I'm crawling downhill at the beginning of the video, and it was all I could do to keep the KTM from accelerating. Hard to keep a 500 lb bike under control in those conditions.

Ended up getting through trails and back to the main road successfully, but I was exhausted and soaked with sweat. Cruising along the main road, I came upon an unexpected section of loose, deep silt. I wasn't paying enough attention, and down I went (its at the very end of the video). No real damage except for slightly bent crashbars and bruised ribs. Could have been worse.

Low Gap Road

Anyone know if they ever re-opened it? I was up there earlier this spring and it had been closed due to a landslide. Had to make it through on logging roads.
