    For the streetbikes, you've probably figured out by now this region is a utopian place of motorcycle bliss. Check out the Pashnit Roads site to check out the area roads, main ones, mtn passes, and surrounding paved goat trails.

    Nearby Roads are Hwy 88 - Carson Pass, North-South Rd, Hwy 4 - Ebbetts Pass, Monitor Pass and even Lake Tahoe is not far away.



    CAMPERS & TENTERS: Lots of room for tents in a football-field sized grassy area. If you tent, be prepared for cold overnight temps. Fall at 4500 feet in the Sierra Nevada Mountains? You do the math! Warm days, cool nights.



    Our host property has room for large RV's, FunMovers, Camping trailers and other assorted large vehicles. There are probably 20-30 camping spaces. If you plan to camp, trailer up your dirtbikes/quads, or use up a camping space, please contribute an extra $10 to the owner for allowing this event on his private property.



    Not a camper you say?

    Finding Sopiago Springs...







    Sopiago Springs Resort is located a few miles north of Hwy 88 (Carson Pass). Take Omo Ranch Rd north several hundred yards. Omo Ranch Rd splits & North-South Rd begins heading due north to connect with Mormon Emigrant Trail. Omo Ranch Rd turns due west towards Hwy E16 & Fairplay.

    North-South Rd drops off the ridgeline and descends a twisty goaty path (yes, large campers do fine, this is is traversed by large water tanker semi's) 2 miles to a fork in the road. Tim often refers to a stump on the north side of the road here, but descending northward down the hill, hard to see. There will be a sign here "PASHNIT -->" and arrow at this fork in the road. If you go more than 2 miles, you've gone too far.

    See the fork? Go right.


    MS&T lists Tim's address (the fork in the road actually) as 1532 North-South Rd, Somerset, CA 95684- but that may or may not work on your GPS.

    GPS COORDINATES: Sopiago Springs Entrance: 38 32.253 / 120 26.537’

    PHOTO Directions: Awhile back, John wrote a terrific thread about how to find Tim's place. Read that here - Clicky!! If you plan to arrive in the middle of the night, be advised there is not a light on for miles.

    I should make this one if my bike doesn't break down again on the way up. Hey Jimbo94 want to try it again?

    Hey guys, just wanted to give an official "Come on up!" Welcome and Invitation to everyone to join us at the Fall Gathering! I am making the projector background Bigger and Closer this year! Bigger Movies!

    I'd like to invite everyone to bring up their home videos (of riding- jeez, what were you thinking there for a moment!!), as we'll be having our own "Academy Awards" for the "Best" riding video in different categories: Dirt, Dual Sport, Racing, Touring, Stunt, Etc. We'll have a Wheelie Contest, a stoppie contest, a Slowest Rider contest, and ????

    Watch out, because Hyper and I have been practicing our wheelies and slowies! How about a "who can jump over the bonfire" contest??? Sure....Anyone interested in having a dealer come up to provide test rides? Let me know and I'll give it a try. If anyone has a great projector, I had the Sopiago one stolen, so for now if I could borrow one for the event that would be great. My new helper Rocky will be there to set up and greet everyone, so say "Hi" to Rocky when you see him. I'm thinking about inviting the SBR folks....Any feedback about this???

    So to speak...
