Small photo album of the trip -

Starting with breakfast in Walker, 5,400'


We headed up to Lobdell Lake, 9,600'


Skag and I made the summit, 11,600' and change


TroyinTahoe makes the summit


Followed by Pointman, who was very glad he mounted the knobbies on his big v-twin.


View looking north, catching the hoar's frost on the flag pole and what is left of a wind blown flag


And looking east


Next stop was Belfort, 10,800'. If you look at the picture of Pointman reaching the summit you'll see the road out the south towards Wheeler Peak and Belfort.


Skag


Pointman


There are several buildings still standing, several more foundations still showing


What is left of deluxe accommodations for some miner


After reaching the highway we headed out the Masonic Stage Road. saluting a company of Marines out for training along the east fork of the Walker. We've reached Lower Town of Masonic looking back up at Mt. Patterson.


With hunger setting in we went up to Masonic Peak and to the McMillian Spring Road back down to Bridgeport


For a round of Rhino Burgers and Fries before parting ways.

Do the folks up in Reno want to sponsor a ride? If not I'm sure we can come up with something for the Gardnerville area. Can do a loop over Monitor Pass coming back down by Leviathian Mine Road, but taking the loop down to the Carson River and back out at China Springs. Not a lot of roads up on top, but a few interesting dead ends.

Could also pull a loop through the Pine Nuts: south to north, out Sunrise Pass to pick up Pine Nut Valley Road up to Slater Mine, down Lone Pine Canyon, back up and over Rickey Canyon, looping back around 208 to Jack Wright Pass and then catching a dirt road back up toe the top and out Blossom Canyon to pick up the Carson River loop.

There is enough out there to more or less make it up as we go without taxing Pointman's big KTM.

Thumb Taxing the 950

Pat,

Looking to have the 450 project started shortly.

Then we'll really have some fun!

Pat... Thanks for the PM and thanks again for a great ride. Hope you guys didnt get hammered too bad on the ride back. The rain was turning to snow when I left Bootjack.
West side or east side, any riding you've got in mind, lemme know. I don't mind traveling.

I've got the whole weekend available. Anywhere you guys want to ride is fine with me. I don't know the area well enough to make any suggestions.

Yep. Prices are really good - $75 on Friday and $99 on Saturday. We are looking at doing 30 min. sessions so TONS of riding time. THere will be A group (race pace) and a B/C+ type group for street pace. Friday is less expensive because we are only going from 9 to 3:30 with a half hour lunch. There will likely not be a lot of people there so great riding time.

Saturday we are splitting the track with TTP racing (they have a race there on Sunday) so their racers will be going in the A group and then we will still have a B/C+ or street pace group. Saturday is only $99 because we will have a session or two in the A/Racer group that is doing timing runs for the race Sunday. We figured that if it is a good price people will still be happy if they have a short session here and there or have to be a bit more flexible.

The races on Sunday should be really cool too to come and watch. THere are classes for both licensed racers and an open street class for non-licensed people who want to race.

Here is the track info - http://www.sbk775.com/

Race info - being put on my TTP racing - http://www.ttpracing.com/

Come on out. Should be a great time.

Time for a roll call - who is up for a ride? I'm free for either Sunday or Monday. I tend to prefer Monday as most the weekenders are heading home that day. Sounds like we have myself and 211John. Howabout TroyinTahoe or Pointman.

I figure if we agree on a day and time the rest will work itself out.

Saturday ride

KDX,

Thanks for your info when I was up in Nevada last may (Fallon area riders).

RJNUTT from Gardnerville and I ended up riding the Black Rock and High Rock for 2 days...

We are planning a ride on Saturday out of Gardnerville... Unfortunately, since I've been on constant deployment, the wife wants me home for some of this weekend, so the plan is to pick up my KTM 950 from KTM in Reno Saturday morning and get in some good riding working my way towards Lee Vining. I have to head over the pass sometime before evening, but will have up to the afternoon free.

RJNUTT and i are thinking about retracing your last ride (great post by the way), but if you can get away on Saturday we'd be in for joining what ever ride you have going on.

Cheers,

Vern

Last week-end I was in Kennedy Meadows(I heard the fly over A.Vern). This week-end I have friends coming up. Will try and get out with you guys sometime. I want to get up to Mt Patterson. Been to Lobdell lake on my 990.

Full on street tires when I was up there. Need to get the knobs on but she rides so nice on the highway right now with those Bridgestone Battlaxes.
