      Yes it was. I wish the larger bikes could have done leg 3N08 with us. It actually was a blast.

    If any of the videos look like I am about to lose control of the bike, it is entirely for dramatic effect :)

    I've started uploading the videos to YouTube but it looks like it will be quite a while. Once they are done, I'll post the links as an update to this comment.

    Can't do 5 stars because I failed to complete the task and it won't let me do 4.5 but I had a great time. Thanks to everyone who helped out by providing me with shelter and support during the ride.

    Well sorry I missed y'all. Looks like I missed you by about 15 minutes. If anyone is interested in going to Baja, Beyond Starbucks is doing one Memorial Day Weekend.

  • Wayne T.

    Kevin, just wondering what we should be doing for lunch, are there places to stop for lunch or should we be bring food with us?

    April 18, 2014

    • Steve

      Plan on bringing lunch. Based on departure time and the route, we'll be on the trail during lunch time where there is no food available. If you chose not to do the 30 mile loop around erwin lake then you could head in to town and have late lunch while rest of group completed that loop.

      Roughly what time do you think you'll hop on I-15? May try to time my Fallbrook departure to meet you for the ride up.

      I'll meet you at Big Pine Flat campground. Any idea on a good time to be there?

  • Steve

    I'm close to being able to commit to this ride (on the DR350 -- my KLR is down with bad stator). I have a cabin in Moonridge which could accommodate the bulk of the group depending on how picky people are about sleeping arrangements.

      Steve, my cabin is in Fawnskin. Mine is small but I could host a few.

    Hey Kevin, not sure if there would be time for a stop but the Metzger Mine on Holcomb Valley Road is a nice, safe (no vertical drop) place to visit that we'd be riding right past. It is a short walk from the road we'll be on. If riders bring flashlights it could be a fun place to stop for a lunch/snack break.

      Steve: That sounds fun to me!, Cool

    Hey some of you may be coming from a ways away and for whatever reasons may want to Truck your bikes to the ride. There is a Walmart near the start that may be a good place to leave you truck for the weekend.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
