Yes we did..............yes we did drink all that plus more on Friday night, which is most likely why my hangover didn't kick in until after noon on Saturday.

But I did.....these are from 5/14 when my "job" for the day was to ride up the mountain to Grant Grove in Kings Canyon to look at a crashed 2012 Tacoma for the Park Service.


the sunrise over Mineral King taken from east Visalia.....

The Giant Sequoia forest on Redwood mountain....





Just another day at the office

Redwood mountain grove is the largest grove of giants, it has 2100 trees with a girth of over ten feet. Converse basin had more giant trees but it was logged in the 1870's.....

Check out the fire scar on this double tree, you can walk right through...







Eshom valley looking toward Big Baldy, Eshom is a magical place.

"our" cabin on Redwood mountain......

Well that was a great day at work, when I got back to the shop it was time to do some much needed maintaince on the bike, oil change, replace shift lever to the upgraded type, adjust valves etc....
Gotta get ready to go riding the coming weekend with Rob and the BRAAAAAAAP! crew.

The lever looked good but I replaced it anyhow.

Reinstall the tank and seat and pack up, then it's off to the Green hill.

The "birthday" boy!

Fun fun stuff!

Orange beast, " I think there's a trail here " somewhere?



Saturday we had eight riders, six RFS KTMs a CRF450X and a WR250, nice conga line....Braaaaaaap!



Fun creek crossings....

Ralphy199



that is all for day one.....made it back to camp alive!Sunday coming soon....

Hill climbing FOOLS!

I think we kept the LEOs busier than the Hells Angels up in Kernville. Scott even had his tailpipe probed by one.
The LEO's actual bothering you guys? Is it Sheriffs, BLM, Rangers, CHP?

BLM Rangers. We had four of them in our site for almost 90 minutes on Friday. I had lost (broken) my rear fender a while back and had to get a new license plate which I was just carrying in my backpack due to my new fender not coming in on time. They saw us ride by at the heads on Keyesville and then followed us back to camp. One of them was undergoing training by his superior so they were on edge and acting like dicks. After about an hour or so of thta they calmed down and gained a sense of humor and went on their way.

As an added comment, might I just say if you've bought a bike from TT in the past, be sure that all of your VIN #'s match your registration.
