... some adventure bike progress ...



... kritical mass of KLR karnage and chaos ... lost keys,
rescue-parts-bike with rumored trashed bottom end
(thanks James & Chris!) and a top-end ...







... plans ... I got 'em ... hoping to get a suitable
bike together for Labor Day and maybe the
Grand Canyon or just head east into Nevada
and then hit the BARF Hawthorne Rally on the
way home ...

... goal is to slog to the garage again tonight
and remove the old cylinder and piston in
the dark using my headlamp ...

Has anyone ridden Bodie Road?

Thinking about adding it to the end of my paved day riding to Hawthorne for the Fall Rally.

It runs northeast out of Bodie and intersects with 359 outside of Hawthorne.

I want to say I remember it being a relatively graded dirt road but others have said its a Jeep trail with significant water crossings and hill climbs.

Mt. Patterson ...



got to fly over Mt. Patterson yesterday ... view of Mt. Patterson (still no snow) and Bridgeport reservoir ...



... think this pic captures most of thedub's route in this super-cool Ride Report: Eastern Sierra Dual Sport Ride

couple of my old solo-Mt. Patterson-on-an-over-loaded-KLR ride reports here and here ...

took me years of exploring, but finally found my way up Mt. Patterson ... one of the best dual-sport rides ever,
only four or so hours from Lower Haight ...
