    Very nice time. Great weather and an absolutely beautiful location. Here are my photos. They're all from camp. I wanted to take some from the ride, but I was too busy riding! Looking forward to seeing everyone's photos and videos, so get to posting!

    Thanks to: :clap
    Rich (M1Jeep) for organizing the weekend ride
    Noel (Dunerat) and Cathy (sopascat) for the killer carne asada
    and everyone else who showed up. Bunch of nice guys! :deal Pleasure meeting you all FFs!

    Rich, this ride was different, more challenging, but the place was awesome...I think this is one of Cali's hidden secret. Too bad this can not be accessed year around, and I'm very glad we took advantage of the perfect weather.

    Great riding, and we have to do it again.

    Thanks Shoco for the pics...sorry you have to head home early. I have lots of pics to post and will upload them tonight.

    Thanks Rich for his effort organized such a great outing.
    Great taco by the taco A-Team.
    I truly enjoy the whole event and meeting all the people and their bikes.
    The trails and fire roads are fantastic in Kennedy meadow.
    The bullshits around the fire pit add color to the whole trip.:rofl
    We really should do Kennedy Meadow every year.

    See you all at the next ride gathering.

    Thanks,

    Luke

    I was home at 11:30 am. I don't know why but when I got home. I jumped in the shower and joined my street bike club for a ride. I was still pumped from the greatest trail riding I have ever done. This has been the second ride/event I have done off this site. Its amazing to me how cool/friendly/helpful/outgoing everyone is on these trips. All you FF are tops in my book. Thanks Rich for putting this ride together. I think It should become a yearly trip. Dunerat thanks for cooking the cat (inside joke). Cathy good job with the taco fixings. Thank you guys. Ben

    Additional thanks to whoever got to the camp site first and picking up a fantastic spot...>>>>>>>>>>huge, flat ground, lots of shades, and best of all it's FREE! :clap


    Special thanks to Windrat :thumb , although I don't drink beer, for providing beer of various brands to all the FFs who were out of drinks! :freaky

    The BS around the campfire was the biggest I've seen so far, and lasted till 2 AM! Unfortunately luv2race didn't last too long....:lol3

    the drive up was pretty, but negotiating the 9 mile canyon is a little unnerving, especially for the motorhomies and those trailering

    caught up with sopascat in Kennedy Meadows. she's an excellent driver going through the trees without a spotter. btw...nice set up you have in your toy hauler :nod

    we arrived at the camp "TROY MEADOWS OVERFLOW" around 6 pm with most of the FFs already settled in and back from their ride
