TVTMA Fun Run

A quick reminder that the TVTMA Fun Run is this Sat 4/13.....

Www.tvtma.com



This is a non-competitive fun event, so ride it fast or ride it slow, just remember that the course is marked for general navigation .....ie no Blue (warning)

Funds generated from this event go towards Owyhee Search Rescue, Blue Ribbon Coalition, and trail clearing.

Lots of cool prizes to be won at the end of the ride .....


......also

TVTMA is hosting this years state ride and to help generate funds to continue our fight for access.... Carl's Cycles is helping to donate a brand new 300 KTM to be raffled off.



More info is available again on the TVTMA website where tickets can also be purchased....buy yours now for your chance to maybe win this sweet ride!

Spring Rides

Just a FYI for the local crowd, since folks don't seem to wander into the IAMC site much these days.

You know I am not sure. Ed (HT) has a load of information it's just a matter of compiling it. Tell you what I have been involved in it for the last two years and I'm kinda of running out of ideas.

Didn't you give Ed a list of possible sites? He trying it's just a lot of work to put it together. I believe it's been done for 4 years now.

I can't even imagine how much work putting the challenge together must be!... I do know how much fun it is, and that we appreciate all the work you guys put into getting it together... we'll just wait and see how it goes!

Took a quick ride down to Death Valley...

Over the weekend I took a quick run down to Death Valley to check it out... I was originally going to spend more time there, but my wife's mom passed away and I had to cut the trip short to get back for the funeral... ended up doing 2000 miles in 4 days... no record for sure, but at times it did seem like a lot of miles... The Super Tenere handled that kind of mileage with ease and I never really got stiff or sore from riding, even after 10 hours in the saddle some days... anyway, here are some pic's of my flash trip. I only had time to hit the highlights... I will be going back when I've got more time to get into the back country and see the rest of it... daytime highs were in the low 90's and night time low's were about 58 degrees at Mesquite Creek where I camped. here are some pic's...


Entered at Scotties Castle after a long day coming from Alpine Ut... Camped at Mesquite Campground it got nice and warm as I dropped into the Valley from Tonapah Nv

Scotties Castle

Moon set at Mesquite Campground

at about the same time, it's getting close to Sun rise

Mesquite campground panorama, it is a nice place to camp... 12 bucks a night for a tent

Time to wake up the S-10... lots of miles ahead today...

Ubehebe Crater

headed from Mesquite campground toward Furnace Creek and losing elevation fast

Borax works... ya.. I'm a tourist

Gas is pretty high at Furnace Creek, but it's a bargain compared to Panamint Springs... it was 6.50 a gal at Panamint!





Devils golf course




This guy was standing at the side of the road, I stopped, he came right up to me which made me kinda nervous... Idaho coyote's take off like a bat out of hell!... I got my pic and left him alone just in case he was sick...

Dante's Point... panarama

from minus 200 feet below sea level on the valley floor to over 11,000 feet above sea level for the peaks behind...

least expensive gas in Death Valley at 4.95 per gal

Leaving Death Valley and heading toward Bishop Ca... Sierra's are great!

Valley floor about 2000', Mt Whitney over 14000'... nice!


fun ride... I never get tired of looking at the Sierra's, I'll be back for more of Death Valley, but it was nice to get the layout for future planning...
adios!

Coyote should at least be shot at with a BB gun ,, he looks to comfortable.

I thought a good idea would be river put-ins and take-outs. Lots of great rides throughout the entire state, easy to compile 40-50 sites.

And that is too bad, a great site for the local folks (and club) I guess ADV brings more fame and fortune to posters

It took him a few spills to realize that if you slide into a rut... Just stay in it... Trying to get out will only cause you to wipe out.
