Golden / Silver State 2017 - Oct 6, 7, 8 - Kernville, CA

Recommended Posts

Oh yes, you read that right. We're doing it again, for the 4th year running.

As always, the plan is to meet in Kernville on Friday night, October 6th - yeah yeah, better late than never. How you get there is up to you, and book your own rooms unless you want to sleep at a shady bar. Stay at the Kernville Inn (11042 Kernville Rd), beer, pizza, etc. Then, it's shitty pre-ride breakfast and party time:


Saturday: Kernville to Shaver Lake (https://goo.gl/maps/dzuKrxMzX4N2) - traditionally we stay at the Shaver Lake Hotel find a room wherever you can!

Sunday: Shaver Lake to wherever you came from (https://goo.gl/maps/yuaV5SkDC1C2)

 

As always you're welcome to join and peel off as you please, just let us know your plan. Speeding, passing on double yellows, and cutting the huge line at the Kings Canyon park entrance are encouraged but not required. 


Motivation:

Riffraff?? Who you calling riffraff? 

 

Oh, that's right, I don't own a vfr anymore. Cue the Time Warp...

Hey Noel! You can be Riff if i can remain Raff. Sorry to hear you've moved on from the 7th gen. The Multistrada sounds like a close substitute - are you following in Crazybrother's footsteps?

Hey Lance, yes I guess I am following crazybro, although red not white. See my post Talking to Myself in Other Motorcycle Talk, perhaps that will explain my vfr defection.

 

So, cancel that track day in Vegas and join the tribe in the Sierras! Cuz now you know you won't be the only one in a stitch.  :cool:

Your 'Talking to Myself' thread had me laughing out loud for real, not just a polite lol for the Aerostitch reference. Had a definite Richard Bach feel to it. That last comment from '2012 you' had a lot of subtext; I've heard several guys say they never slept with a 5th gen that didn't provide an exhilarating experience [Insert reference to impending divorce here].

There are many days to hit the track, but only one GSS ride. Checkmate!

I have a pending heavy work comittment starting in October sometime. Timing may be just right for me to go before  it starts. Still have all my gear ready from my last solo moto ride to Mammoth and Yosemite handy. I vowed to get another trip in before winter. Sequoias is just right.

Sounds good, just keep us posted. I'll put you as a "maybe" for now.

Booked Musick Creek Inn for 10/7 (thanks Jim). Sounds like they are getting low on rooms also.

Well I got home very late and just procrastinated on looking into getting a room. I did however call this morning and found that the Musick Creek had one space left but it is a 2 story unit with 3 queen beds for $180.00/night. Anybody want to share this? He said it had a fridge, microwave, etc. If anybody wants to split this, I think time is of the essence!

Rather than risk losing the room, I booked it. Hopefully those who haven't booked theirs yet can just share this cabin with me. I have 48  hours before the date to cancel, so if you're hemming and hawing, please don't wait too long. Although I don't mind having a huge place to myself, I'd rather not have to pay the for the whole lot if I don't have to.

 

Cheers!

Sweet. I'm sure there's plenty of room for more, although I didn't ask for the square footage was. He said 3 queen beds and 2 stories, hopefully that meant the building and that he's not going to read us a couple of stories before bed.:ohmy:

+1, nice!.

 

I'll bet that crazybro and/or tc will be happy to join your new frat house. You might want to text or pm them (if you haven't already), they may not check this site until it's too late.

Looks like sfdownhill will be taking the third bed. So hopefully he'll chime in to let you all know he's going.

Yessir, I'll be trying to keep tc339, BrianF, Duc2V4, and the rest of you in sight Oct 7-8. Duc2V4, I'm in on the 3rd bed Saturday - thanks for tracking down lodging in Shaver.

 

I got a double room in Kernville for Fri night, and texted crazybrother to see if he wants to share quarters Friday.

That's beautiful (for a twin) but bring your 1990 - that VFR is pure eye candy!
