Just got back from a few weeks of playing in the Sierra. Did some bike camping and dirt riding. I'll mosey on over to the Adventure forum and post a real ride report soon but until then here are a few snapshots...























The Sierra is truly a special place...

You have the best freakin' camera...it's kinda ridiculous!

Obviously being in the most beautiful BFE location ever helps a lot.

My camera is a Lumix point-and-shoot I might be getting a big ol' fancy camera in the end of September (Lost and Found at work ) but I'll have no clue what to do with it. I guess I should take a class or something

And yeah, it definitely helps to be shooting beautiful scenery


Here's one that most BARF'ers can relate to. I have no idea why there was a Frank Thomas roadracing boot screwed to this tree in the southern Sequoia NF on a black diamond motorcycle-only trail, but I thought it was interesting/funny enough to take a photo of it

It was both. We camped off the bikes for 3 days in the Giant Sequoia National Monument, and again later down in the Sequoia NF. We took off from our biking campsite and did some trailriding while bike camping, leaving the tent behind, and we did some straight-up dirtbiking on the 2-strokes. A little bit of everything And yeah, temps were really nice...not too hot. It dropped to 32 one morning while bike camping but it was no big deal.

I started a report in the Adventure forum already

Do it! You won't regret it! All the places pictured above (with the exception of the black diamond trail) can be done on streetbikes. Hell, we were on big heavy SM's with street-oriented tires and we had no issues...at least, not til later in the trip I can't imagine ever being without a bike that's both capable of ripping on pavement and capable of going where I want to go with it...which is usually in the dirt somewhere. The SM reigns supreme

I love that area, too!

I'd planned on jumping into the lake but the thunder and rains came so we beat a not-hasty-enough retreat. More to come on that in the ride report We also bypassed the springs this time since it was hot, but we've hit them all before. We played in the freezing river instead
