    Cant wait to open her up on some KM single track.

    I think twice is enough for me on the big bike. I have to fly out to Japan on 10/16 and that wouldn't leave me much time to pack.

    Besides, I really need to do KM on a dirt bike. May have to get one of those Feb/Mar timeframe.

    Any suggestions for a guy 6'4" 230 lbs? Orange? Edelweys is 6'5" and seemed to handle the Honda pretty well.

    Eric, even a BRP or any other 650 will feel like a dirt bike compared to the GSA, there are lots of good bikes to choose from, what's the budget? Do you want new or used? electric start.... and so on. Be sure it has a plate.

    I don't even know what a BRP is! Budget would be 4-5 so used. Definitely plated too. Electric start would be nice but I'm not that picky.

    BTW, I passed through Visalia to and from Yosemite last weekend and waved.

    Thanks, Danny. I have family in AZ, so that might make it even easier. Hmmm... have to consider that for the GSA too.

    Danny, the ocean is always open. Kennedy Meadows is only open 4 months out of the year!

    :dealAttention inmates. This will probably be the last chance to ride Kennedy Meadows before they close it for the season. Find a way to fit this trip into your busy schedule because there is no other place like it. If you haven't been before you owe it to yourself to get up there and see it in person instead of through someone else's lens. There is no fee to get in on this and the camping is free. All we ask is that you go to the first post, click on the blue RSVP pill and rsvp as a guest, bring a bundle of wood and have fun ! Any questions post up and I will answer them promply.
