    I am. But I am trying to do a ride/camp. Maybe Kennedy Meadows or Death Valley.
    If I can't, I'll ride local.

    Even Friday after work, got there midnight, set up camp and head back Sunday night.
    m1jeep is checking his schedule, he may come on his jeep. I haven't been to KM for almost 2 years now.

    How'd it work out?
    Cleghorn was closed on Sunday when we went by because of a fire.

    It was good. Easy ride until it got too hot. We met at 8:00am and had breakfast at Summit Inn at 9:30. Rode a little more until 12 noon and went back home when it hit 100 degrees. :)
    I have some pictures, will post them this week.

    I'm staying in town next weekend. Anyone want to do a day ride next Sat or Sun? Maybe thru big bear to Pioneertown. I did that from east to west ending at Silverwood lake last month and it was great.

    If you ride on Saturday, do you guys truck and meet somewhere out there with the smaller bikes? I have a plated 520 MXC but coming from the OC would probably not be a wise decision. Sunday I can ride the GS no problem. I'll watch this post for details....

    Monday maybe:evil. But the 990 is in for susp. I'll be on the 610. That's still a small big bike. Right?

    I am truckless, so I (almost) always ride from home :ricky

    For those truckin'-in, the McD's at 15/138 provides a convenient place to stage.
    Park on the street, not in the parking lot :nono
    FS adventure pass required? :dunno

    Expecting it to be hot all this weekend :knary
    8am or earlier start :devildog
