    This years annual riders will cover the beautiful high sierras. Great trails and better views.:1drink I rode with the Dust Devils M/C club last year and they are great! I am going the Reno Air Races when I am there too. :clapThese are two of my favorite events to go to. If you are thinking of going do what I did and check the club forum at <CITE>dustdevilsmc</CITE><CITE>.com</CITE> .

    I met one of those guys this year on one of the sierra nevada adventure rides, and was planning on going on this ride, but I've been put back to work and unable to attend this weekend. They do seem like a fun crowd, and its for a good cause too.

    I'm in this year. It's always been the same weekend as our Lost Coast ride before, which we were unable to change because of hunting seasons. Thanks to the Devils for moving the date so I can ride!

    The Club Is happy to hear that you can make it. You can pre-register on the dustdevilsmc website if you like.

    It will be another spectacular ride this year. See you here.:clap

    I like the sound of this but am concerned about how hard the riding is. More like what bikes are going. I ride a BMW 650 dakar so am not looking for any hard single track. But can ride decent, just a heavy bike.

    Just got back from the club meeting the ride is going to fantastic and getting better with every sign up. currently 116 signed up not counting 85 members possible. I have helped the mapping of the adventure loop and it is going to be awesome. Lakes, summits, dirt, twisty bumpy back roads, desert mines all kinds of cool things. All funds going to a great cause to save our riding lands. If you need info visit http://www.dustdevilsmc.com/Participant/ParticipantFlyer.aspx
