    another epic weekend!!! :freaky

    4 days of punishing AND scenic gnarly riding.
    i love the Eastern Sierras!

    thank you to all those whom attended. it's your stoke on camping and riding that keeps this unRally going.

    i have a ton of video to edit (drone and GoPro) as well as post some pics from my phone.
    i'll try to write a Ride Report tomorrow.

    i will say, Woodcutter is still in my Top Ten favorite trails. and to finish this epic weekend on that trail puts icing on the cake! :getiton

    What a great time! That ride up Silver Canyon and all over the White Mountains was the best scenery I have ever witnessed on a motorcycle. I met some nice people, learned some things, and explored new areas.

    A quick dronie from the top of Laurel Lakes Road.

    IMG_9323.JPG IMG_9322.JPG IMG_9295.JPG IMG_9298.JPG Thanks again to all and especially @RAZR for a great unrally. I was gonna post pics yesterday, but had a particularly bad case of the Mondays (tends to happen after wknd rides). Hopefully next year I can come with better tires and try some of the more difficult routes. Cheers.

    Got to the campground Wednesday, beautiful as always!


    [​IMG]

    Next day went to see the petroglyphs along Chidago Canyon and Fish Slough Roads. Rode back to camp on Casa Diablo, forest service roads, some two track and what I'm calling track and a half. Got chased by a sheep herder's dogs. 3 very cool petroglyphs sites to see.

    The best petroglyphs were on the rock to the left, but the sun made them all but invisible.

    Hardly rode Saturday and Sunday due to bike problems (which probably weren't that big of a deal).

    Sunday evening
