    I am getting confused. Are we meeting at the same place as the ride we did on black friday? Where estate road changes to dirt. 10:30 am.

    If not where?

    I will be leaving home about 8:00 am, but will check here before I leave.

    Went up El Dorado Canyon yesterday. It needs to thaw out a bit more.

    It's more fun on trail bikes than dual sport bikes. We ride 450's up there all the time. Tons of single track.

    Great ride today, Perfect conditions
    Thanks guys!
    Again, just scratching the surface of the trails around Reno.
    I think there's enough trails around here for 20 years for riding!

    As I was filling up my car at the gas station the attendant had a retort for my comment about the nice weather last week and that "February sun in Reno is like a little joke, it makes you think it's spring but it'll be terrible again."

    That's what I am fearing this weekend because it's pretty chilly.

    If nothing pans out for a ride on Sunday, I'll be at the Sun Valley Rec. area romping around in the sand & berms practicing some drills. Just know that I'm available.
