    I could do saturday as well. We could do our standard around estates and out to the radio tower. Or I am sure this is more single track between estates and the towers we can ride.

    I say RR200 tracks. Start at north Virginia up over backside of Peavine into dog valley. Ride until we hit snow or starvation

    You'll starve. There's no snow to hit.

    If anyone does want to come up to Truckee for a woods/tight single track ride on small bikes on Sunday morning let me know.

    I'd like to hook up on one of these rides, I need some new riding friends, the usual suspects are getting caught up in life...I'll keep watching this thread, maybe next weekend, I've got the VCGP this weekend.

Got my eye on a Beta though, just have to figure out how to make it look like a Yamaha so Kari doesn't get wise....Was gonna stop by the other day while I was driving in the area but the concrete crew was really dumpin the mud, didn't finish til late. Have fun in Mexico, I gotta figure this retirement thing out :cry

    Nice edit on the ride Scorpion. What a great day, even with the few crashes and mechanical problem.

    I love how I was just robbing you blind from the back of your truck while you're talking to the camera at the end.

    Gas Station 10am
    N. Virginia @ Parr Blvd.

    IIRC the tracks start a bit north of there.
    Probably riding in, not sure where we will end up.

    Does that work?

    Sounds good to me. I boss people around for a living and it gets tiring so I leave it up to you guys to tell me where to be and when.

    Good ride today. Scorpion - Heal up quick. We rode that granit single track the opposite direction, it was awesome and we found some other sweet tracks over there. See you next weekend.

    I know this section well. Hope the injury is minor and you heal up soon. Off to Moab in the morning. Save a spot for the old guy....
