Tom......where are you?
I can now answer my own question now: Yes you can do Rincon on a 690 ! You may want to have a few good riding buddys alone with you!
Made it home.... cleaned up & heading out to a family dinner
Thanks to everyone, we had a great time
Made it home safe @ 3:00 PM today, it was a great ride. I logged 442 miles on the KTM 640 in two days, 10mi. on the single track jackass trail, somewhere around 80-90 on misc. FS roads and the rest on mostly twistie mountain slab. Grumpy's was awesome! I left Grumpy's @ 7:45 and headed down 9 mile caynon into some nasty gusty winds and blowing dust-sand. When I got to 395 it only got worse because now it was a direct crosswind, I had to lean into wind to keep the bike tracking down the road. I made it to 178 west and fought a 50 mph head wind up to the summit and got a room in Isabella for the night at around 11;00 PM. Today I had breakfast in Kernville then headed north via FS roads along the Kern caynon's western ridge all the way to Johnsondale, saw some great country up there. Thanks to all who helped put this one together, the LA ADV weekend riders know how it's done. Thanks Dale for the gas, I might not have made it to Isabella without it. It was fun, See ya next time, Perry
Did we have FUN or what!!!!!
Home. Gotta unload and SHOWER!

Dude you are the man! I also went down the hill after Grump's. That shit was nust at the bottom of the hill!:eek1 I was in a full size truck and I was scared! I couldn't see shit with all the sand blowing and my truck was all over the road. I could not even imagine riding a bike in that wind.
Thanks Rich and Richer for setting up this wonderful ride.
We left the camp at 2:30 and just got in my house at 7pm.
7 riders from San Diego had the best time for this summer ride.
Thank Earl999 for leading our group on Sat single tracks.
Thank Joel leading us on the Sunday ride.

Pictures to follow.
another great kennedy meadows outing - thanks M1Jeep for putting it together and to Klammer for the routes and Klammer and Purelick for leading. and thanks to those you who helped break into the truck - it would have been a cold night outside. bug-eating video to follow.
thanks to m1 and klammer for a great weekend...
the intermediate trails at KM are way under rated...
klammer wasn't lying when he advised everyone to put at least 50T on the rear....
hey, glad to hear peeps who checked in and are home safely.
some of us never left home
earl was there and no t-d-bowl....you suck tom....
actually, i was overwhelmed choosing the right viscosity of oil for the altitude we would be at, and i wasn't convinced the jetting i chose would be absolutely spot-on. (i hope you know i'm kidding by now, earl. or am i?)
i have a deadline at a job i'm at, and at the rate i'm going, sept. 5th is looking pretty scary. so i did the "responsible" thing, and worked all weekend. here's to being responsible!!! yaayyyy!!!
now where the hell are all the pics?
Nice going Tom, you have time to post, but not to answer your phone?
Use the halogen blinker fluid next time and some ABEC-7 muffler bearings and you'll have no problems jetting that "work" BS out of the way and making it to KM.
Heres a few panos from the trip
