Don't tell the Califoricators, but I am having the GREAT WATER TRUCK come out again (shortly) today. We need to draw the line somewhere. Next thing you know ARNIE will be here trying to kill on our women folk.

You mean the Great Kalifornicator?? He has a maid - he doesn't need to come here!

Back TO THE FUTURE

We need to find a way to combine D/S riders and ADV riders and put on good rides. Yes . Here in Reno. Keep the thread going and come up with ideas. Also check out the Conklin campground north of Beckwourth Ca. It looks like a good starting point for new adventures. All inclusive. Free camping with water and vault tolet . I have been there, and its is always empty. Cool place for a beginning.

Good idea... you have any rough plans what a first ride would entail?

Rough Plans

Yes. Conklin Camp is 75 miles by way of Verdi....Harness Pass... and Stampede Lake. Thur Loyalton and on too Beckwourth CA. A short hope into Portolla for fuel if we don't have a chase veh. There are loads of dirt roads and trails accessable from Conklin Camp. It is 20 miles from Frenchmans and 20 from Antalope Res.
Taylorsville (neat place and good food) is a alt fueling stop and hwy 395 is also.
I camped at Conklin this summer on a solo ride (returning from the Black Rock desert in May), and talked to the camp maintainer. Nice guy. He also told me there is never anyone there. He said it was a pleasure to maintain the camp, as it is sooooo cool. A steam runs right by it.
Probably 8-10 dry camp sites just waiting for a bunch of no reservations ADV riders to stop in.
I would be good for a practice run if anyone is interested.
My idea would be to have a chase veh for extra fuel cans and just go for it. Logging roads... fire roads....wood cutter roads...trails...dirt roads... and a neat as hell camp spot all for free. FREE

ps. riders need to be dirt road and trail capable.

Where is that?
I'd normally be there but I just picked up a new motorcycle lift (HF sale) and got a buddy coming over to help me to set it up. and the bike needs some wrenching.

Got out for a ride in the Pinenuts this morning thinking it would be nice with the rain we had overnight.

STILL DUSTY!

Practice trip.

I am practice trip ready after Fri 19th. Just need one riding partner. It would be a 150 mile day ride just to get others hooked on the idea. A colors ride with an eye for a 2013 spring date . No trail bosses...no brand loyalities...no nothing.
I am no stranger to solo off hwy rides on bikes and bicycles but it is more fun with others.
Maybe Hotmama will let us fill his Urel up this beer and ice when it's time for the real deal.
I know if five riders show for the first year we will have to take the phone off the hook for the second.
free...Did I mention that its FREE.
