You guys clearly had her covered, so I had a rare opportunity.

Ok this is really lame, but I have some photos and a video to upload and don't remember how. Do I use the "insert photo" icon and type in the link to the photo (its hosted in the cloud)?

Yes!

What 'cloud' are you referring to? Like iCloud or some online storage like photo bucket or something. If iCloud, i don't think it will work. If the latter or similar, it will work! Right click on the photo, then "copy image address". click the image icon in here, and then paste!

Oh, it the same procedure that BARF uses. My bad.

Photos from yesterday's ride to Clear Creek. I didn't know anyone prior to this ride, but they are all great people. We had big bikes, little bikes, older guys, younger guys, and even a married (I assume?) couple on his and hers bikes. It was a fun ride, though my 990 was aching to get out of 2nd gear and it was way too warn for March. My advice: go soon while there's still a little greenery (and before they put gates up). It we don't get any more rain its gonna look like late summer in a couple of weeks out there.








If you look closely you can see a couple of bikes making their way up the road in the distance.















Stopping for lunch. So, I checked my tracks on Garmin Basecamp and it turns out this is NOT mexican lake. Mexican lake is another, only slightly larger mudhole a bit further down the road. I was able to confirm this on Google earth as well.



Into the mud



Whoaa! Why does there always have to be some clown taking a picture? Just part of the fun of traveling with a group.



Entry to one of the mines.



Doesn't go very far



Looking down on the old mine buildings



Panoche Inn. Great place for a beer or three, but not when there's still a couple of hour's riding to get home. I think all of us but one (no names) had sodas.

Can someone provide or point to a set of GPS tracks with the legal dirt roads for Clear Creek?

Great pics, thanks for taking the time to share them. I hope that you don't mind that I've saved a couple to my own gallery.

Also, good assumption

Thanks for posting up your pics Leo,

so I had more than one navigation failure - I took you to an unnamed mudhole for lunch instead of glorious Spanish Lake, the one with the nude beach. Luckily nobody was interested in sunning themselves!

I saw at least two with barley pops, albeit only one each. Here's a funny thing: the DMV sends out this little mailer with your license that has a chart showing # drinks before your likely drunk by body weight. At 200lbs it shows almost a six pack for me... no way I'm testing out their ratio.

PS - San Benito Co roads are Clear Creek (R001), Mexican Lake (R011), Sawmill (T158), and I think... KCAC (R015, the paved bit at the bottom of Sawmill). The bit that got us from Mexican Lake down to KCAC after lunch was (we assumed) opened by the BLM as part of their new vehicle route, according to their maps. It might be also labeled R015, but opened according to their new document.

If they ever get this crap sorted there should be some other roads and trails opened south of KCAC Rd.

You can upload them to this site in the GPS forums.

http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...2#post23724262

I use this:
http://www.garmin.com/en-US/shop/downloads/basecamp

and this:
http://www.gpsfiledepot.com/maps/view/523/

to view GPX files if you don't have any Garmin base or Topo maps, or you can use Google Earth
