2019 High Sierra

Recommended Posts

8th annual High Sierra went down this weekend and I’d say it was a success!

We had about 85 or so. Injuries: Raph’s dad (tib/fib), Greg’s dad, Loren. Hopefully nothing serious.

 

Morning temps: 32, 31, 26.

 

Much more photos/videos to come!

Had a great time at High Sierra.  I was lucky to be driven up and back and stay in a glamper for the weekend.  

Didn't take a lot of pictures, but got some video of Bob, Greg and Arwi.  I would have gotten video of Tyler, but I just couldn't stay in front of him for long. 

Notice the smoke in background.  So there is a small forest fire and Greg takes us on a route that had  us exiting behind fire lines.  I bet the Forest Ranger wondered how the hell we got behind him that day.  Bob recorded that route so @Eric Hall you could add it to the routes for the 9th Annual High Sierra.  The route is also on Greg's rever account.  Its such a good route that when we got done Greg denied the whole trip was his idea!  He was dehydrated and delirious.  

I don't think I broke my frame this ride, but not positive.  I have not gone out to the garage to confirm this yet.  I showed up with a 2018 KTM 1090R with only 200 miles on it.  I have one thing to figure out.  The traction control started to act up and wanted to turn on after starting the motor.  It took turning the key on and off a few times and putting it in off road mode to get it to hold.  I think I did the tough hill climb with TC on, even though it said off.  I'm surprised I made it.   Hopefully Arwi has video of it.  

Enjoy what images I have!

Great time this weekend with you all.

Day 1 photos were from the Lost Mine Road.

Day 2 Trevor and I went exploring Mt Patterson and found an epic advanced route. I hope his drone footage from the top comes out.

Photo op before great Burgers (and people watching) in Benton

Heading out to Benton hot springs, before the Dips (which was everyone's favorite part of that ride)

Hearing about the good work Motorrad Angels does

Rode to bodie from Bridgeport, then out to Mono Lake - Ellen did really well on her 650GS, she had only done a couple dirt roads before this trip.

Can pretty much guarantee if you stop and eat here you will have a story to tell afterwards. The burgers were awesome, and so was watching Wade siphoning gas out of his R1200GSA with it's 56 gallon tanks, to the dude with a mohawk and leather chest rig that ran out of gas on his way home from burning man... Oh and the dude in the corner ripping tall boys staring deeply into all of our eyes while he remained completely silent. Good times. 10/10 would go again.

For anyone wondering, Dad is ok. Only a fracture at the base of the fibula, which he rode home on 300 miles before going to the doctor.  Graham’s have been accused of being stubborn in the past...

I wanted to say something more about the riders who showed up as well as the cause we’ve chosen to help out.

We raised roughly $38/person for a great charity.

When you consider another event (that will go unnamed) boasted of raising $800 amongst 220 riders. You all beat that by a factor of 10!

Wow, 220 people could have donated $10 each and did much better than $800.
