For years I've seen pictures and read stories about the Rubicon Trail. It's a difficult trail, near California's Lake Tahoe, used most often by highly modified four wheel drive vehicles. Just out of curiosity, I started a thread a while back, (Anybody done the Rubicon Trail on 2 Wheels?) asking if anyone had done it on two wheels. Many inmates responded with fond recollections of their experience, others with warnings and elaborate tales of terror. At some point it became a sort of quest for me to do the trail on my KTM950Adventure. When I voiced this on the thread it started a whole new wave of Rubicon Tales of Terror. The stories had the opposite effect on me and I became even more determined to tackle this trail. Last weekend the opportunity came up. An inmate from DSRIDERS in Fresno PM'd me with an invitation. So after asking my boss for some time off in spite of the fact that I had too much work lined up and too little time to do it. And asking Mrs.Riceless if I could take off in spite of the fact that it was the weekend of our 20th wedding aniversery....THE RIDE WAS ON! I don't always ignore the good advice of others, as evidenced by the fact that I didn't ride The Mighty 950 to the trail. This is an unusual sight. The drive is 500 miles one way, the trail is 12+/- miles, so I'll be in the truck for 1000+ miles so I can do a 12 mile trail ride.
