    I hope nobody objects, but I'm going to post some pictures here. I didn't fly in to Cedarville so may as well show my little ride into camp....

    Thank you for having me and I enjoyed meeting some great folks. I really enjoyed the rides and that part of California & Nevada. I hope to make other rallies too.

    For me it is about the people, smiles and great stories.

    Thanks for the sweet photo @oldoval. Everyone knows that derby girls are photo whores!

    I love seeing all the different perspectives of the same trip, and all the places to put on the list for next year.
    Keep 'em coming!

    Cowboys and bulls seem to have a unique relationship in Cedarville. "Rodeo" I don't think that word means what they think it means.

    We trailered the bikes up and did some not-so-adventurous rides on Saturday. Thanks to avejoe for letting me tag along, and for taking me out for my first spin on the playa. It was a great day.

    Thanks to Cootz for doing all the leg work on this. It's really turning into a fantastic get-together with some great people and a stunning location. Maybe next year I can do something more challenging, without the possibility of getting stuck on the playa.

    Man, there are some really beautiful images on this thread. @CarlosThomas' stuff in particular.
