Went for an epic ride with Ridgerunner yesterday and wanted to post a few pics. Long day that included a bit of everything: mud, snow, water crossings, log hops, etc. As always, no pics of the best stuff- too busy riding & having fun. Ridgerunner knows some great routes and has excellent knowledge of maps- came in handy.
Snow over Calistoga/Napa; knew it was gonna be an interesting day.
Trying to figure out how deep the water is.
Indian Reservoir Valley? Beautiful place to stop. Too funny- 3 black 09 KLRs without decals.
Lots of downed trees. Will carry a saw from now on.
Pretty long water crossing- two parts. Once you get started, you are committed. Hope our guess about the depth was right...
Water crossing video. If you look ahead, you can see the second part of the crossing that came next.
Another water crossing video. Bikes and riders did great. One was just too deep and we had to turn back. We had to push the bikes across another sketchy fast crossing. Spent a lot of time wringing water out of the socks. Next time I ride with Sean, I'll bring a wetsuit.
This was a great ride and I thank Sean and Sashi for letting me tag along. I can't wait to do it again (with crashbars..). At the end of the day, you could easily tell my bike from the others by the broken fairing and handguard!
Let's do it again!
