    Hi Artman -

    I'm in Truckee, which sometimes makes it difficult to get over to the west side in the winter. I'll look forward to meeting you sometime and having a ride.

    I was in Reno yesterday afternoon and saw three GS's parked outside the Road Rider store. Naturally, I had to stop by and see who it was. Three guys I don't know - one of whom had just picked up a brand new GS at Sierra BMW. They were riding up to Hallelujah Junction to celebrate.

    Lots and lots of GS riders here in Truckee - I'll see if I can get a list going over the winter. Any of you guys on the AdvRider forum?? Drop me a line!

    Best wishes,

    Pete Bansen

    What is the Northridge Inn, anyway? Haven't been there - what am I missing?

    Northridge Inn is a local Hang Out its about 1mile from downtown Nevada City it's too far for the Bay Area visitors to walk and the parking lot is gravel so YUPPIES won't park there. Located on Nevada St. X Hwy. 20. ARTMAN!

    Hey Gussie -

    Love your avatar...

    The Road Rider store in Reno is on the frontage road on the west side of 395, just north of Big Valley Honda and Reno Hardley Ableson.

    Nice little place - they have clothing (heavy into the Brand X black leather, but also First Gear, Joe Rocket, etc), helmets, accessories (heavy into the chrome geegaw stuff, but what are ya gonna do?). They have some luggage, tank bags, Gerbings's heated clothing. Nice people - if I can't find something at Sierra BMW, I can sometimes find it there. They seem to cater mostly to the cruiser and Wing crowd, but anytime I see three GS's parked outside, I've gotta stop and investigate.

    Got any snow up there?? Some here, but the next spell looks dry. Still time for a few more rides.

    pbansen, thanks for the directions - I'll be in town next weekend, and I'll check it out.
    Yeah, a little bit of snow in town, but mostly at around 5000 ft.

    Hey Artman,

    I finally bought a KTM 950 and can finally and fully join the adventure rider ranks. I live in Incline Village, NV (where it is snowing right now). Would love to ride with you guys sometime soon.

    Leaving tomorrow for a ride to San Diego and Las Vegas. Be back in a week (or two??).

    It appears that I will be in Nevada City on Saturday.
    My bride has determined that we will be seeing a play, dining and dancing with 5 other couples. If we do a lunch I should be able to ride and get back in time to get ready to return that eve.

    Is this going to be strictly a dual sport get together, or can us road guys join in? Placer County is right next door, and I like to meet some riders who live close.:):
