Snow Day!!

anytwowilldo, and 1962siia invited me, and Dmitriy for a run over M1 to Covelo from Penny Pines... Hopefully they will post a few pics, but here are mine..





I was essentially running a street tire (Ok, it's kind of a ADV tire) and it works well for all the easy hardpacked M1 super highway..



Until this happened (four or five times)




We fully committed to making it to Covelo after a 4x4 stopped and said this was the worst of the snow, and it was only for about 3 miles.. They lied..







Somebody has a snazzy 1090 very similar to mine


The ice is no joke. anytwowilldo here trying to ride up the hill..



I said this happened a lot. (not me this time)


1962siia riding my 1090 for me... This happened more than a few times. I'm so short I can't really duck walk my 1090



anytwowilldo taking a turn on my 1090





It was about six miles of snow and ice and pushed us into riding the last 18 miles on M1 in the dark.

Dima got me enjoying the sunset

Epic day! Glad we decided to push through! Glad we didn't know it was going to be 6 miles of that, or we would have surely turned and missed out on the adventure!

I'm surprisingly sore today. Probably from being so tense riding across the ice sheets!

More pics:

Must be harder to pick up! I know mine is.

Great pics. Looks like a fun and slick outing, thanks for sharing.

awesome ... those are the rides that persist in memory.

Dmitriy always seems to capture wonderful images.

trying to pick up a bike in those conditions was the reason I resoled with Vibram when my speed-soles wore out ...

No, we did a loop all in one day. Met in Rohnert Park at 9:15am. It was a 500+ mile day for the guy coming from the South Bay!

The plan is to go back to camp in the spring at some point. Lots of spots that look perfect for motocampout!

NICE! That is a long day, but looks like a really fun ride. I will make a trip here soon!

Still love the 640's (they will always have a special place in my heart as the first "dirtbike" I owned). But I wanted something that can take the freeway miles a bit easier without feeling like the motor will grenade....

Yea definitely harder to pick up, especially if the wheels are on sheet ice along with your feet
Gotta say the 1090 fits like a glove, was a little sketched out riding that big of a bike on dirt with all that HP, but after getting the hang of the balance (ice will teach you balance VERY quickly ) it felt just as comfortable as my 300 2T does.

You should come ride with us, promise it will be fun!!!

Nice Demitri that's cool, the ice does not seem like a good place for heavy bikes haha but it must feel good once you conquer the challenge.

I have two top ends to do on the KLRs in my garage this February, and am shooting to see you at StonyBARF in April ...
