Make sure you drink my share of the beer.
How was the water temp up there? I am thinking of taking out the kayaks tomorrow, but I don't know if I want to freeze.

I think it said the water temperature was around 57 at the store? We didn't get in, we just hiked around the lake. There were plenty of people swimming in it so, I guess it wasn't too cold?

Subscribed,

I'd love to join you guys anytime you've got something going on between Yosemite to Tahoe and east towards Nevada. My riding partner Lionsroaar, as earlier stated would also most likely join you. Looks like a good group and some fun riding.

August Ride?

I was planning on doing a dual sport ride on August 21-22 up by Lake Almanor , but it was cancelled. It is east of Red Bluff on the California map along Hwy 36. I have a room booked in Chester for Aug. 21 already, and was thinking about going anyway, just to check the area out? It is probably a 4-6 hour ride from Merced though. If you really wanted to get a good day of riding you would need to leave early or, stay a couple of nights? From what the promoter told me you would need to book a room like right now, if you wanted to stay in a hotel.

Sounds interesting! I have not spent much if any time up north, only along the coast. Let me check my schedule at work see what might be happening here in the hangar. I know I have to go to Miami around the 1st for an engine swap but I should be finished by then. The wife is working Friday nights, I think through the entire month of Aug...so a definite maybe!

Might be picking up a DR350 this Saturday. If so, then I'd definately be up to riding the back route into Yosemite the following weeked --- if it isn't 105 degrees outside!

Are you trailer'n your bike up there or riding up? Checked the area out on the map, looks like lots of riding in and around chester...peaks at about 6000 and the airport in chester is at 4500, i bet it is nice there...

I would love to join you guys for a trip into Yosemite. I have friends that have done it, so I know there is a route out of Coulterville. Can't do it next weekend (Laguna Seca MotoGP) but one of the weekends after might work out. I will keep checking to see if anything materializes.

If you want to go, I'll ride my 650 Dakar up. If no one is interested in going, I will probably trailer my DRZ there? The DRZ is easier for me to pick up by myself if it should happen.

Here is a link of the area, you can find places to stay on there.

I have a reservation at the Antlers motel for Saturday August 21. From what I have been told, you will want to make a reservation as soon as you can? I guess it is a popular place to visit during the summer months?
