Any Reno-Tahoe-Carson Valley dualsport riders want to meet up?

I have a big dualsport, F800GS. Looking for others who want to ride the local region.

Any rides?

as soon as i get my 1100 put back together i'd be happy to join you as i try to break it again... i'm south of Gardnerville, and know for sure that the area E of G-ville and north to at least 80 is covered with dirt roads.

I try to get out as often as I can. I have a KLR650 and don't care where I'm riding as long as I'm riding. I'm also down at the south end of Gardnerville. Being riding this both sides of the Sierra since 1970 so I know a few routes.

So is anyone up for a ride this weekend? Maybe Sunday??

Get in some dirt and see if we can find something fun but not too difficult.

This is also the white mountain research station ride weekend but I am not going to go this year. Its a fun ride but you have to be into a HUGE weekend.

Thoughts? Somewhere fun but not too difficult.

I can't make it. Bike is still apart getting the forks worked on by Ed McCoy at McCoys off road in Mound House. Putting some Aprilia RXV forks aka Marzocchi Shiver on the F800GS.

Won't be done until next week. Bummer

Can't make Sunday, but if it's not too late to discuss a ride for Saturday ... I'm up with the sun so I'll check the thread.

I'm down in Dayton, would love to get out sometime!! Have an F800gs if there is a lot of highway involved, or a monster of a TW200 if it is all trails.

F800GS is my only off road bike. Up for fire roads & fun stuff. Like leviathan mine road, etc.

Next weekend is out for me... Trackday at Reno Fernley Raceway. Yes, my other bike is a trackbike!

Check it out www.sportbike775.com. I'm a trustee in that group.

There is a good bike night for Sportbike775 on Mondays in Reno & also Gardnerville (both are on Monday). I also go to another bike night on Thursdays. Maybe we could meet up at a bike night to talk about some rides sometime?

Anyone else have a track addiction? Next Sat & Sunday will be fun. Also there is a "try the track" during the lunch hours both days. 40-50 mph. Get to ride the track a few laps... That's how I got started. Addicted to it now. HAHA

I'll be riding both days B&C groups. I'll be in a camper out there camping Friday & Sat too. I ride a Kawasaki EX650R it is black & silver. Says EX-RR on the side.

I get to PJs sometimes. Tough when there are so many around town each week. Zpizza Mondays, PJs wed, boulevard pizza Thursdays. LOL

I have to go to Zpizza this Monday night. Can ya make it to that one?

Nope, not at all for me on Monday night, but I'll look you up on Sunday for sure.
