Wish I could, family day today and still waiting for my gear to arrive from overseas. I’m embarrassed to say that I was riding with an old street helmet, gardening gloves, and no boots yesterday… felt naked.

Cheers!

Azi, the trail he rode is where we started but turned around that day we rode together. It's also part of the A/B Loop of the Ride Reno 200.

Working Sucks...til you're done...

I was perfectly happy working Sunday until Coffman300 ruined my day by inviting me on a big loop ride of Lyon County that very same day....bastard! So, I moped around all day Sunday being my typical irascible self, much to the dismay of all those around me. Started out like this:



Nice conditions for a motorcycle, but not so much for a bull wagon Anyway, I got home at five and decided that DST wasn't such a bad idea after all, geared up and rode up behind the house. A few shots of the blustery evening...looking out over Reno. Hey Smackit, Peavine in the back left, only 25 miles away.....



Carson and Carson Valley



I wonder why I have such good cell reception up here



Kids and I did this ten years ago...




Fauna



Flora



"I am Monarch of all I survey,
My right there is none to dispute;
From the centre all round to the sea,
I am lord of fowl and brute."



See you all out there

Hey all,

I just got a trials bike (02 GG), and am itching to play around on it with other more experienced trials riders. I've seen lots of tracks out at Prison Hill (Carson), so I know you're out there. Prison Hill is a trials playground, for sure. Who are you?

Evan
