Any big bike info would be appreciated. Route will be west to east. Looking to doing some side trips also. Thanks

Easy on anything, I saw a Ducati sport bike out there one time.

No problem lots of fun.

If you're looking for side trips, enter by Tyler-Foote crossing rather than running up (paved) Pleistocene Ridge Road. Take the dirt road up to Alleghany, passes by some mines and stuff.

I'm planning on doing this in a one day there-and-back next Monday (Sept 15th). It's my first time (though I've lived in the area nearly my entire life!- late to dirt road exploring)

I'll be taking one or two others, and anyone may join who's interested. We'll be leaving Nevada city by 8:00am to fit it all in, with a destination of Cabelas (to pick up some rimfire ammo I have on hold there).

Im on my trusty 1978 yamaha xs650, the Yambler. We've done this year's Sheetiron 300 together. The other guy is on a zook 250.

Let me know if you're interested (especially if you've done it before-guide experience requested!).


Keep the Faith!
