    A smaller track off of Hawk Meadow Trail near Somersett Pkwy, GPS 39.555363,-119.974458

    Wish I could, family day today and still waiting for my gear to arrive from overseas. I’m embarrassed to say that I was riding with an old street helmet, gardening gloves, and no boots yesterday… felt naked.

    Cheers!

    Azi, the trail he rode is where we started but turned around that day we rode together. It's also part of the A/B Loop of the Ride Reno 200.

    I was perfectly happy working Sunday until Coffman300 ruined my day by inviting me on a big loop ride of Lyon County that very same day....bastard! So, I moped around all day Sunday being my typical irascible self, much to the dismay of all those around me. Started out like this:

    Nice conditions for a motorcycle, but not so much for a bull wagon :huh Anyway, I got home at five and decided that DST wasn't such a bad idea after all, geared up and rode up behind the house. A few shots of the blustery evening...looking out over Reno. Hey Smackit, Peavine in the back left, only 25 miles away.....

    Hey all,

    I just got a trials bike (02 GG), and am itching to play around on it with other more experienced trials riders. I've seen lots of tracks out at Prison Hill (Carson), so I know you're out there. Prison Hill is a trials playground, for sure. Who are you?

    I had a great time. We had a great mix of mild/challenging trails and we ripped up the countryside without any mishaps. Let's hope and plan for the same thing next weekend.

    Well, there was this one time I went from Spanish Springs up to Red Rock by way of moon rocks. On the goldwing. At night. With the fuel light on. So, I won't completely rule out stupid S.
