I actually DID go back today to get some pictures, but of the 20 or so that I took only these 2 are worth a shit and don't really tell the story.

This is about 3" deep and flowing toward the light.


And this is the water as it finds an exit from the tunnel. This is about 12" deep.


Unfortunately back in the tunnels where the ice is thick I couldn't get any pictures to come out because it was too dark.

I did get a rear flat on my 660 in the tunnel and had to ride out about 4 miles to a truck to get home so I had that going for me! And then I got to change both 660 tires to a new D/S set so I can slab the 660 to the Hangtown national tomorrow since the 950 still doesn't have a clutch...

I don't know about that. This is the way it was when I bought the bike last fall. If its wrong can someone post a pic of the way it should be.

Thanks Blair

My point exactly, cross-member should be between tire and fender.
This looks like he has been "gently" rear-ended.

Hey Brents

Hi , I think I met you at In and Out in Auburn Saturday. We were heading home from the races? You were on the 660. The tunnels are below Mt.Juda, part of what we call the lake run, Judah to Donner, a short but fun ski trip. Looks pretty tough wrestling that big machine through the snow,Yikes!

Hey Steve,

Yep, that was us. Hope you had a better ride home than us though!

I got a rear flat at speed on the 660 right up near the summit. Got off at the Sugar bowl exit and out of cold, tired, determination rode the flat up Hwy 40 to Donner Ski Ranch and then down 40 to the South Shore of Donner Lake where Trick picked me and the bike up in my truck.

Today I put the bike on the lift to figure out the tire failure (the second in 2 days!) and found that a rear suspension wishbone bolt had backed out about 1/4" which was just far enough to snap one side of the rear suspension links when the suspension compressed!

The tire was user error (I had pinched the tube in the rim lock), but it's kinda scary to think I was doing 75mph up I-80 with a broken suspension link when the tire went flat!

But that's why they call it 'Adventure' riding, right? You should have seen us on the way to Hangtown when Trick lost a beach chair off his Gobi bags and it got sucked into his rear wheel. At speed going up 80, in a construction zone between Jersey barriers on both sides (NO shoulder) and his bike sucks up the chair frame, locks up and slides to a stop in the slow lane! What's left of the chair is still there...

Good times.
