You guys really handled those big bikes well! Sometimes it's good to have the "small" bike! Hahahahaa! Great riding introduction to my new home! Already was looking at Google Earth to find a way out of the one section where we turned around in......

Glad to see you guys had a good ride. I would have come along but if I were to be closely inspected I'd be in a lot of trouble with legalities on my bike...working on it though. That's why I try to stay off of pavement.

I found a way to connect Kings Row to up-over Peavine which was a breakthrough for me (lots of nasty hill climbs on that route), and also accidentally discovered Crystal Peak while meandering past Dog Valley.

I'll be riding this Sunday as usual, hit me up if anyone's needing a buddy!

I was reluctant to post this video but you know what they say,
tragedy + time = comedy.

Dam did you really get care flight. Do you have insurance. Those flights get pretty pricey. I keep saying I need to get the spot and insurance.

What you need is a nice relaxing high speed ride on your 990.

This is the call. Sharpie and I are meeting at the Hirschdale store at 10 tomorrow. We are riding the 950s. A combination of dirt and slab. It will be the route I wanted to take last week, but the babysitter didn't show up. Lets call it a lake ride. We will be going by 5 of them. Should be nothing to rough. Dirt will be all roads I think . Oh the Hirschdale store is at the Hirschdale exit off of I80 also the exit for Boca and Stampede reservoirs.

Fletch, would you have room for another 990 to tag along?

You bet George. Just be at he Hirschdale store at 10 or get a hold of Sharpie and ride up with him. He should be lurking around here somewhere.

Great! I am road testing my new front brake setup. So barring something unforseen, I will see you there.

Scorpion. Got GPS tracks of your adventure? Looks fun minus the heat stroke and Helo ride.

Me andGrundy rode some epic trails today

"Trail" was a loosely used term to describe the rocky woods single track
I could say that'd it was the hardest funnest worst trail I've ever been on
Sharpened the rock and tree jumping skills

I can say me and Grundy made it our personal bitch

Ended up at Prosser

Got the tip from the 950/990 crew we crossed paths with, thanks Fletch!

That looks awesome Scorpion and Grundy, wish I could have been there with you guys. I get home Thursday but going camping this weekend (Fallen Leaf Lake). I'm good for Sat, June 14th, or during the week.
