    Hey Spoof how do you access the gps data? Do you have to be a member of that forum? I looked at your post there and several others and can't see a download link or anything to get the tracks.
    Rookie guy with rookie question I'm sure, sorry.

    Anyone up for a half day-ish ride this Saturday? 10/27
    I'm breaking in a new motor and have some local gps routes for some fun challenging trails.

    Mix of terrain and some single track.
    Relaxed pace just really want to try out a new bike!

    Anyone heading out this weekend? After this weather the dirt should be great. Was thinking of a Verdi-Loyalton-Bordertown-Verdi loop.

    I need to get some maps of the area. I'm in Garderville I know Reno / boomtown is 65ish miles north of me some of the names you use it would be nice to pull out a map and see the are referenced.

    We are still unpacking which looks like it will never fit in the house or ever end.

    Looks like it would have been a blast in that snow! The bike looks much nicer with a bit of dirt on it :1drink
