Took off myself last week from Sparks,NV. picked up the dirt road at Pyramid. A series of dirt roads all the way to just above Elko, NV.
Then north to Owyhee and the Duck valley and then south to the NF 745 and 751 to Jarbridge, NV. Camping all along the way. Then just a few miles outside of Jarbridge the road was closed to snow, yes snow drifts across the road. 3 days before a holiday weekend, what a surprise!?! The photo I took I am less than a mile from the 1st drifts. Turned around and retraced 745 back to 225 spending my last
night at the Big Bend campground. A little lighting with some light rain and very windy the next moring for the run down to Elko I-80 and back home. Brutal head winds all the way.
sheeesh. 33 mpg at 70mph was the best I could do.
My 1st trip of warm months and definitely not my last.
Scrubbing in new tires tonight. New front brake pads are fantastic after bedding them in. And front brake is harder than 30 below ice cream after the re-bleed. A few more miles on the new steering damper from Beemershop too. Like a whole new bike.
