    It was great meeting you Earl. Always nice to run into cool people on the trail. I ended up having a great day up there. Some of the best riding I've seen in a long time! Cheers!!

    Hey, there you are!

    Likewise, it's always great to meet people on the trail. I saw your Adv sticker and grabbed a shot!

    Don't know if you saw the 2 ladies that were hiking, but they were a "little" lost, so I showed them my map and gave them bearings to where they wanted to go. :eek1 Good thing is that they had water, energy bars, etc.

    We had a great ride too! :clap I love it up there, it's like Kennedy Meadows light, just 90 minutes away!

    Sorry guys, I dont know how to prevent this video from autoplay. It is on my SmugMug account. YouTube didn't do that. If you know how to fix it, please let me know. I know it is annoying. :cry

    was someone on a 1200 GS? I heard Lior mention that on the video. I wonder how they fared.

    saw this new gs, never rode with him, don't think he ever made it to pioneer town, not sure if he was with the group. eric, you would love this ride instead of getting hurt at cnf. sorry for the get off, hope you're ok now, and no big $$$ carnage on the gsa.

    Yep, he is Itay, Ami and Lior's friend. He was at Kennedy Meadows on a small bike. He couldn't make it to Pioneer town. He went to hospital with Ami.

    Oh yeah, I remember Itay from KM. He and Lior were helping me try and fix my left pannier latch. We were comparing notes on GS/GSA's.

    I guess it was Ami who cut his ride short but I'm wondering how those tires performed. I've seen some amazing riding off road on even the Metzeler Tourances but I'm not sure I'd want to try that. I may get another set of the TKC 80's or the new Heidenau K60 Scouts.

    I wanted to go but I was really beat with jet lag from my trip so I just did that 4 hour CNF ride locally. Plus, I had a special someone who missed me too (not the dog). She likes riding too!

    after we went to bed and hours later, 3 PPs rolled into the campground around 2AM, and pulled their bikes and set up their tents next to me....:cry

    other than the pestering PPs, it was a very nice campground

    my fault, i left my post and rode at the end of van dusen where i waited, and waited. the remaining riders never showed up. i rode back to the last whereabout of the rider who crashed and didn't find them.

    i care, so i spent about an hour in total looking for the missing riders....:ddog

    had enough, so i went to circle K gas station, and no one there either. saw eric and john on baldwin lake road looking for the rest of the PPs. meanwhile, i rode to the trail head and no one else just me.....:scratch
    [​IMG]


    anyway, by then, i don't care anymore...:boid


    what a relief to see the haski boys and they picked up a rider who was looking for us. i was glad we were there for this rider who sincerely needs company.
    [​IMG]


    i noticed the bald rear tire right away....:puke1
