Unfortunately I’m out, not gonna be able to make it. If anybody needs my reservations I’ll notify the staff at the hotel np if necessary as I booked early for a room on both nights at the suggested hotels.

Don't forget, for those interested, SantaCruzRider set up a little extra riding on Friday - Riders wanting a little extra curves can meet Friday at 3 p.m. at The Hideout Saloon in Mariposa, CA. ( https://g.page/HistoricSaloonRestaurant?share ) From there we will ride The Little Dragon (Hwy 49) en route to Jamestown.

This is an awesome set of twisties.

My little group leaving Newhall Friday morning are planning to meet up in Mariposa.
But first we are stopping near Auberry to visit where I had a deer strike several years ago.
I had lost my extra pannier key and would like to find it.

No guarantees, but the forecast is improving a bit from when I lpoked last week. It’s now looking like some chance of precip this coming weekend, but then warming trend to highs in mid-60s and single digit chance of snow the weekend we ride.

With any luck, we will have clear roads, with some sprinkling of snow on the peaks to make your photos looks more impressive! But you may want to bring your warmer riding gloves!

Okay, I've made a reservation for Saturday night. Got the last room. Friday night hotel is full up. She said she might open up a reservation by Monday night. In the event that nothing opens up, anybody got a spare bed for Friday night? I'm clean and I don't poop on the floor. Hartman will confirm this.

Mark, I think we (Jack and I) have an extra bed in our room and you are welcome to use it. I will double check...pooping and being dirty are ok too. :LOL: ;)

I can confirm Mr. Owen cleans up his own swirlies. And does bring the peat bog boozes. CU there.

Just for a quick reminder to those coming to start the ride in Mariposa on Friday afternoon - we want to be kickstands-up at 3PM if possible.

Saturday we'll be kickstands-up close to 8AM in Jamestown. We have riding, food and scenery to enjoy.

Weather for the weekend ride is gonna be awesome!

All passes are open.

I hope you will welcome a last minute entry. I will come down from Oregon and plan to be in Mariposa in time for kick stands up.
Due to the last minute plan I will be in different motels but only a few blocks away both nights.
I just have to get away from work before my head explodes.

Just made in home.
Starting home at 7:30 this morning may have seemed drastic but the was no traffic and the pass was memorable. Just a shame there was high winds on the 5 down to LA.
Can't wait til next time but let's just pass on the Royal Carriage Hotel!

A huge thanks to Dan for putting on another great event. The roads were a blast. Food was top notch. And the people were the best. Awesome to see and meet everyone.

Glad you guys got out early and avoided traffic. I'll confirm with the Carriage Hotel that you get a DELUXE room next year! :ROFLMAO: Toilet, shower -- AND a water connection!

Fantastic riding, roads, weather and riders! Thank you to all that came to this Meet and Greet and those that could not travel out you missed a very fun set of roads! Thank you Dan for putting this together! I think we would all agree that we cannot wait to ride the passes again next year!! Here are a few pictures of our adventure. Picture 1 Highway 49 Mariposa, Ca. Picture 2 Ebbetts Pass on Highway 4. Picture 3 Sonora Pass Highway 108. Me hugging the sign! Picture 4 Rest stop!

450 miles from my house to Mariposa but I got there on time. Great bunch of guys but the Hideout Saloon was another level of society. Nice meal in Jamestown that night and I was around the corner in the Railtown Motel with a good room. The next day I learned not to trust anybody with an FJR who says " Follow me, I have the loop in my GPS", unless you like gravel.
After breakfast in Markleville I headed North through Reno, Susanville and into the Rogue Valley with heavy rain the last 40 miles. Home at 5:00PM.
Great bunch of guys and I loved the mountain passes.

Against all appearances I had a fantastic time seeing everyone again. The roads were epic, the fellowship even more so. Thank you all for the help and concern. It really means alot. Dan, Keith another fantastic job on an epic event. Keep it up. As I have said before, these are some of the finest people I have ever met. Bar none. I am very proud to claim you all as friends. Sincerely. Very very happy I found this club. CU in Laughlin.
