Let me know if interested.

I can ride every night from August 13 thru August 26. Gi is going to Argentina for vacation. My schedule is wide open.

BTW, Matt where is that single track we did with you and your dad around Lyttle Creek? I can't find the tracks for that.

I was cruising the Harley and let Elias ride the Katoom going up Azusa Cyn Thursday afternoon. Just before we got to the last gate, the front tire blew out on the 990. Elias said all of the training he got from both MSF courses and all the extra training that I gave him went through his head in 1/2 to 1 second and realized he didn't know what to do. But, he didn't panic. He did have to drop his foot down (dirt track style) since he was in a lean at about 50 mph and saved it. Sore for a day but he's good now. I had everything....except tire irons. So I rode home and got the p/u. Now I'm just wondering....Dunlops or Heidenau. Grrr that I'm gonna miss tonight. ps, you going to the unride in Bishop? I'm still on the fence.

Yes, I have 2 YouTube videos, first one is the single track following your dad, and the second one is a dirt road that took us to water crossing right next to Lytle Creek Rd.
Here are the videos. If you watch the second one, you'll know exactly where we are but I cant. :)

Wow, much appreciated. I just don't know where La Casa de Nueve y catorse is. I'm still on vacation so you let me know what's easy for you. Also, I'm gonna buy some tire irons and a torque wrench tomorrow in case this ever happens when I'm solo out in the boonies. You can pm me or you got my cellie. Wish I woulda done it sooner...I woulda joined you tonight

I am. But I am trying to do a ride/camp. Maybe Kennedy Meadows or Death Valley.
If I can't, I'll ride local.

Meeting my dad tomorrow morning for the usual run up to Summit Inn for breakfast.
Easy ride, lots of dirt roads, maybe some ohv trails.
8am at the Lytle Creek Chevron, exit I15 at Sierra.
