    In for the 7th. Where in Calistoga? How bout the gas/convenience store at the corner of calistoga road and 29?

    Unless of course something better comes along. (actually, it would not be better, just higher priority, I end up with way too much guilt if I defer a revenue or other issue for recreation mid week.)

    Looking forward.

    Would love to check out the ural sometime.

    New Ural (like yours)
    2 wd, less expensive|750cc, rough castings, will suffer more depreciation

    1150GSA
    1150GSA, beautiful, unique, will probably maintain about 10K value over time | custom, more than budgeted, will cry if I damage it

    How about the intersection for silverado trail and the main street through town. Just follow Lincoln down through town to the stop sign (four way stop) and La Prima pizza is on your left. We will pick you up there. We will all be on 1150 Adv's two black one silver. bring a lunch and h20:evil

    I'm heading to Mendocino Natl again on Sunday 5/11 if anybody wants to explore dirt, combination of different trails and all trails are clearly marked with the level of difficulty. I'll be setting up base camp at Penny Pines, hope to see some of you there.

    Great ride guys. Thanks Cory for being a catalyst and having a plan.
    I got home a bit after 7:30; Made for 12 hours of saddle with just over 250 miles.
    We kicked up a fair amount of dust for a bunch of bigger bikes.
    Lots of riding in loose surfaces, couple of creek crossings...No broken bones, no broken gear, I'd call that a sucess.

    Let's do it again soon before it's too hot and dry.

    Sorry for the delay guys, I have been working too much this week.

    Nice meeting up with some good guys and five strangers hitting it off! We had a good ride and a blast.

    Sandplow(Tony) Sorry, I thought I got a pic of you in the water but I guess I put the camera down to help.

    This is Vincent(Vrago) getting wet on the creek that I got stuck on!

    Hey Tony - are you related to Gillafunk as in you are both reincarnated U-boat commanders? :wink::devildog

    When's the next ride? Since I'm once again not-with-job, I just might be able to make it.

    DD here -

    I am ready to get a few rides in this spring/summer in preparation for an october ride out to colorado on dirt and then back here on a 10-12 day trip.

    I would love to hit Mendo and other places, wherever an 1150 adv can go, or maybe even where not recommended, i may take it anyway.:lol3
    I live in Novato and work in SF, so rides for me are weekend only.
