So who is up for a night ride out to Bruno's for some yummy raviolis. Friday the 28. Sharpie and I are heading out Friday. Hopefully Sharpie can get out of work early so it won't actually be a night ride, but I am mounting up some leds just in case. Then we are going to camp at Frog Pond. There also the option of getting one of Bruno's 5 star motel rooms. Actually the rooms aren't bad for being in Gerlach. Then were heading out to Soldier Meadows to camp at the hot springs Satuday night. There also the option for a room at the ranch. It will be dirt all the way. Just follow me I think I know where I'm going.

I'd be IN for a big bike ride/camp once I get body and machine fully functional.
Keep posting up the big bike rides.

I would like to go on a 2+ day ride as well with camping. It will be with my DRZ400 but I think it would be fine for that trip. I just need to be in town for one.

BLM map



Any white area of map is private land. Lots of it right at the Estates rd lead into BLM area.

Looking at that map, you should be ok if you ride the washes out to the hills. If you deviate from the road too much you will be in trouble. Quiet pipes and staying on the trails will decrease your run ins with the Property Owners.

When I get back I will be looking for my big bike and be ready for a ride and camp as well. That will be super fun.

Hi Guys, just moved here and bought a WR250. My Reno newbie thread is here. Bike should be ready in another week, so I just wanted to say howdy.

Cheers!

Welcome!

I know a few of the guys on this thread, having ridden with them a couple of times at Golden Valley/Estates Rd. A good bunch and fun to ride with. Most of those that I have met are younger guys (I'm 66), working and tend to ride weekends only. I am retired and always looking for people to ride with--dirt, street, Adventure.....

So I found this area behind my house called Peavine Peak... WOW , I'm going to like it here. Surprised no one was out there on such a beautiful day.





Lovin' the WR!

Cheers!

Looks like a great day! Where is the bottom picture taken from? Looks like a good trail that I have not seen yet.
