So, I will have a three place trailer loaded and one in the bed of my truck.

Prefect timing, it's started snowing. Hope the ride was good.
Sounds like we have a plan. If a couple more opt in or we need to get a couple more bikes down there, we can take my trailer. I'll offer it up any way. With 4 bikes that would leave us with the tack room and the bed of the truck for gear.

I've got your number Sam. Dad is currently battling winter roads in Wyoming. He'll be here tonight. Let's grab dinner somewhere on Wednesday or Thursday night. Or, we could just do some steaks at my house and save a few bucks over restaurant prices.

If you make reservations at Panamint, we stayed in tent site 14 which is about the best one there. Really cool trees to nestle into.

It All sounds good, your house is OK with me. PM your address if that's what you decide.

Just tell your dad to take it easy, Wyoming winds (especially off I-80) are brutal in the winter.

Solstice/ End of the World Little Bike Ride

In observance of the winter solstice, (and in case the Mayans were right, I don't want to spend my last day at work), I'm taking the day off and trailering the TW200 out to Hemmingway Butte for the afternoon for some sand and singletrack. Anybody want bring their little bikes out to play?

I'm glad you posted the ride. After view your photo's, I remember riding in the crevasse, but not as far as you did! I hiked up the rest. Had forgotten what it looked like until seeing your photo's.

...and while you were busy, I was off gallivanting around the desert elsewhere!



Nice meeting you, we'll have to ride out there again sometime.

Very nice and it's Christmas colored too. Now, bring it to Hells Canyon to show it off.

What was your 'exact' route. I have an empty trailer. I can even entice with pictures of past adventures and merriment had with current and previous motorcycles!

Congrats on a awesome motorcycle.
