We can take the the fire road from 180 into the balch camp area then cut up towards wishon and the dinky area. We should be able to make it out to shaver for gas, then decide if we want to ride up to bald mnt lookout. Sound okay?? am just suggesting, i am really open to riding anywhere.

Yup. Sounds good to me.

What is the top of the hill meet spot byron? Gas station somewhere?

David - oh yes but we will negociate the price of that petrol, heh.

Decisions decisions... To gear down or not to gear down ....

Road speeds? 65? 60? 55? I can go down as much as 14/52, but top road speed will suffer significantly.

It looks like we can make it to Wishon and out to Shaver and be at just under 90 miles. Going all the way to Courtright would put us really close to just at 100 so we should be okay either way. I really need to order the larger tank for my bike already!

There is a gas station on the left had side just before Dunlap road that we've Byron at before. I would say about 9:45 or so should give plenty of time for any lagging in the morning. Alright with you Byron?

See you guys tomorrow.

Yes, there is a gas station on the southeast corner. If you are heading in east on 180 you will see the station when you get to Academy but you will have to turn right or south onto Academy ave. Go down a small bit, and then flip a u-turn back north and the station will be on your right. They won't let you in from 180. Hope to see ya tomorrow.

I don't plan on a restful retirement either.
  • Bike prep done - Hope I can fall asleep in a reasonable amount of time.
  • Geared at 15/52 in case we can do the staircases at bald mountain.
  • GoPro ready, cause stopping for pix is lame - but getting pix on the go rocks.
  • Second lic. plate taped off.
  • Tires @ 20% life left, front break pads are definitely gonna need changing after tomorrow....

Oh I am ready for this shit.
