Ride Reno 200

Is anyone planning to do the Ride Reno 200 in September? I'm thinking about signing up but would be hitting it solo, which I would rather not do. Just trying to see if there are any other solo guys wanting someone to ride it with or anyone who is cool with me tagging along.

All my riding buddies ride sport touring bikes, so I'm trying to make some friends in the Adventure department.

I will be ridding it. Are you planning to ride the adventure loops or one of the A or B loops?

A little slab. Ride in/truck in. Big fun.
That sounds like a hell of a lot of fun! I've done that loop (well, very similar, went around 6-mile canyon way instead of moundhouse) in reverse. Will see if I can pull it off. My headlight is less than ideal, however. Hmmm..

There will be three XR's, each with LED light bars. Should be plenty of light.
We'll be there at 8:00pm.

I am most likely going to be on one of the A or B loops, but I know there are going to be a lot of people on the adventure loop so you should have a problem finding some to ride with. The mixer on Friday night would be a great time to look for a partner.

What is the plan for this weekend. I could do Saturday or Sunday (Saturday preferred). Weather should be excellent.

A non-rider friend and my girlfriend and I are floating Truckee on Saturday so no can do, but Sunday I'm free. Don't change plans on my account, but if I can tag along that'd be great. Otherwise I'm planning to hit somewhere around Estates in the morning to get some single track action. I'd go to Peavine or Dog Valley but that's too dangerous to trek solo.
