    Just thought of starting a thread here for us socal riders who plan on attending. We can coordinate our plans and dates hoping to find a riding buddy on our way up there. Either riding, trucking, or trailering, it's always fun and good idea if we can share company.

    I plan to leave on Friday noon Aug 1st. Thinking of riding the GS and prefer to ride along with other big bikes.

    Great idea. Dyvking and I are heading up dragging the bikes, but not sure about departure time yet. You know, now that I think about it, if we put the bikes on a trailer that might be easier on them. :D

    The mole is seriously considering this ride....however, will the trustworthy KLX 250s be ok on a ride like this?

    I guess I should have said i would trailer the bike up there and then ride !

    If you're trailering, there are guys who will be interested to share the ride and gas. Speak up quick guys while there's still a chance!

    Assuming I get back from China on schedule, I am planning to take thursday, friday, and maybe monday off for this. I'll be leaving early thursday morning, RIDING, maybe campout somewhere in the Inyo mtns (Swansea, Mazourka), get to Browns Camp mid friday morning. Not sure exactly which way i'll go, but I don't like pavement and I know how to get from at least Lone Pine to Mammoth (and beyond) 90% off-road.
