    Default Gold Point Nevada Official Ride Report Spring 2013

    I figured I would get this thread kicked off for everyone to share their pictures and stories of adventure.

    This year was the best year to date, the weather and riding conditions were perfect. I think the head count just for Thursdays dinner was 29 and Saturdays was 66, doubled from last years event.

    Riders came in from all over, with a strong Washington and California presence this year, to include a nice CBR 1000, Ducati and even a few Harley's.

    There were no major mishaps, we did have a few drops and a get off that ended in a broken collar bone but Dirtbag had a quick ER visit and was back to GP the following morning and one rider cut the tip off his finger while trying to chop open a coconut. As bikes go, we suffered a busted engine case in steel pass, a cracked radiator that was quick steeled and a flat tire on a GS durning the adventure ride that we could never get to reseat on the trail.

    The camaraderie was amazing as if everyone had known each other for years.

    A Big Thanks to Herb, Walt and Ms. Sandy for being such Great Host it is truly their passion and love for the M2W community that makes this event possible.

    All i can say is thank you to all for making this year a success and October can't get here quick enough for the Fall GP Rally.

    What an awesome group and event! Everyone was so helpful and welcoming. The riding was outstanding, and when a bike broke down, people stayed and helped, they didn't leave you behind. Will be coming to this again for sure!

    TJ & I safely home, unloaded and showered off.
    We caravanned home with Dirtbag and he had somebody meeting him to unload his stuff. OMG that guy carries a bunch of stuff.

    I've got about 4000 frames to go thru before I post up my report.
    Just keep eating popcorn until reports start coming in.
