It was great meeting you Earl. Always nice to run into cool people on the trail. I ended up having a great day up there. Some of the best riding I've seen in a long time! Cheers!!

Hey, there you are!

Likewise, it's always great to meet people on the trail. I saw your Adv sticker and grabbed a shot!

Don't know if you saw the 2 ladies that were hiking, but they were a "little" lost, so I showed them my map and gave them bearings to where they wanted to go. Good thing is that they had water, energy bars, etc.

We had a great ride too! I love it up there, it's like Kennedy Meadows light, just 90 minutes away!

Sorry guys, I dont know how to prevent this video from autoplay. It is on my SmugMug account. YouTube didn't do that. If you know how to fix it, please let me know. I know it is annoying.

was someone on a 1200 GS? I heard Lior mention that on the video. I wonder how they fared.

saw this new gs, never rode with him, don't think he ever made it to pioneer town, not sure if he was with the group. eric, you would love this ride instead of getting hurt at cnf. sorry for the get off, hope you're ok now, and no big $$$ carnage on the gsa.

Yep, he is Itay, Ami and Lior's friend. He was at Kennedy Meadows on a small bike. He couldn't make it to Pioneer town. He went to hospital with Ami.
