    Hi BtoV,

    I'm running my DR650 but there's something there for everyone. I plan on revisiting the Beach Ridge / Albanita / Blackrock single track, a not-too-difficult ride.

    Bring the ride you think you'll have the most fun on.

    Awwww man! Well John, if your Nascar trip falls through, please come on up with us. I'm going to put together a Mikes Sky Rancho / Coco's corner ride this fall, hopefully we can all get together on that one, or one sooner.

    I feel the same way about labor day & Memorial day. That place will be a mad house of jeeps, bikes & Horses. The Reno air races are on labor Day as well as Burning Man I believe. Both funcions are great. However I would like to do some loops in the meadows. Is it possible to change the weekend Rich?......I forgot, I'm to be in Aurora Nevada in September dual sporting around. I may not get to go on this ride.

    Damn! I'm beginning to feel the same way...I think it's rubbing off! j/k

    You guys make a good point regarding large crowds of fellow outdoor enthusiasts. It would suck to ride a crowded single track trail or just having crowds on ANY trail for that matter. I just may have to figure out another date. I'm going to scan my schedule for a better opening.

    OK gang...I bumped the dates back a week to September 5-7, the weekend after "likely-to-be-packed" :huh Labor day weekend. I'm hoping this will fit everyone's schedule so they can attend. The baja riding season is shortly after this ride! This should be primo weather by that time...highs in the mid-70's and lows in the low-40's.

    I reset the sign-up list, so please chime-in if you want me to add you to this list. :ear I promise, this will be the last date change! :lol3

    Don't know If I'll be able to make it, but don't count me out just yet. My B-Day is on the 6th. So, you guys can get me a new Bike, Truck, Jeep, D40 Cannon & a Feather Light S&W 9MM with illuminus sight. Just surprise me with all my required gifts in KM.

    Green sticker is fine. The only time you really need the plate is if you wuss out half way through the loop :ricky

    How about my 2 gallon tank? Are there long rides like Big Bear? If there are loops more than 50 miles, I'll have to bring the DR. Sorry for all the questions....................

    Hello Rich,
    I am in for the Kennedy Meadow ride.:clap
    Also might be interested in the Mike sky Ranch ride also.
    I was at Mike in Feb and it was $60 per person including
    steak dinner and breakfast in the next morning.
    I wonder CoCo will still be there after his operation in April.

    Hi John,

    There'll be plenty of room available for your truck, bike, and gear at camp.

    Your 2 gal tank should be fine for the local single track and MAYBE a run out to Monache Meadows (might be cutting it close though). If you do decide to bring your dirtbike, bring extra gas.

    I don't remember if the general store in Kennedy Meadows sells gas or not? Does anyone know? I remember seeing the price signs but think they were really out dated. Hmmmm?

    Yep! Mike Sky Rancho hooks it up fat! I sure hope Coco is still around then....even more reason to go out there this fall and pay a visit. I heard he loves 7-up (?) in the can, so I'm going to bring down a 12er for him.
