End Of September Nevada Camp & Ride

I am looking for some riding partners for my Fifth Annual End Of September Camp & Ride. I can't seem to get much interest from the usual suspects. 1 to 3 riders plus me is what seems to work best. More than that and it is hard to keep up a good pace. No noobs. Intermediate or better riders. 200 ish mile fuel range. See the following reports for a preview of what my rides are like.

I will be headed out late morning/early afternoon on September 25th trailering my DR650 and camp 15 miles south of Elko, NV at South Fork State Recreation Area. http://parks.nv.gov/parks/south-fork...creation-area/ Returning on Sunday the 30th. That allows for four full days of riding loops. The campground has showers which is hard to find in Nevada.

Last year we camped at Wildhorse State Recreation Area and did loops out of there. We usually take off about 8:30 a.m and return to camp an hour or two before sunset. I never did do a ride report on it but here are a few pictures.

The view from camp.



My good fuel mileage camping setup.



There were big chested babes.



Big holes in the ground.



Big bull elk that walk right up to you during the rut. Maybe stinky dirtbikers smell kinda like cow elk in heat?





Big canyons.



Big views.




Big art.



Big fall colors.




Big rocky inclines.



Big old trucks.




Big thumpers on single track.



And big wrecks.



Come on down and have a BIG old time!

I would love to get down to those parts this year but already have plans to take a week off this month to ride. Im not sure my employer would grant me another week next month but I will try for it.

Your killin' me with those pics. I was just telling a friend I wanted to take a trip this fall, and said maybe toward Yellowstone or down to the Great Basin Area.

How many miles a day do you ride, and how much rough single track? Do you get as far south as Great Basin Park?

It's big wide open country which makes for some high mileage days. 150-250 miles would be my estimate. I like those miles to be in the dirt as much as possible.

Probably not any rough single track on this trip.

I probably won't get to Great Basin National Park, although that looks like a good spot to visit next time.

Well they aren't all rocky. This one was steep, long, curvy and loose.

HA! Just north of the big 'cans' is a track that takes off the road and climbs for 6 miles to the top of an awesome mountain that is 9000'

It's an out and back but the climb is serene:

If I don't see you in person, I'm sure I'll see your tracks and vice versa.

I'll have cold beer and stouter stuff at camp if you stop by some evening.
