Arriving at their favorite riding spot for the winter season (Beaver Dam/Mesquite Nevada), they found that Steve had also made the same decision. Hugh and Gordon took their rigs on a "shake-down" ride up to East Canyon (which we already told you about) and then all three of them went down to Scanlon Ferry road – to test out their brakes!
They wrote that the trip, which normally takes merely a full day's ride, became a tad eventful – well I'll let Hugh tell you about it…
"Steve, Gordon and I went for a ride yesterday (Dec. 20th, 2012). We all have 900's and it was Steve's first trip out with his.
"We had to leave his rig there, go back to the truck at Whitney and then take the trailer to gold butte in order to retrieve his machine.
However, all of them have enough OCD in them that they couldn't be defeated by a rock; so, Hugh's narrative continues:
"The attached pictures are Gordon, Steve and I on top of the Scanlin Ferry Road Pass and at the end of the Scanlin Ferry Road by the lake on Dec. 23, 2012.
Keep it up guys and keep those cards and letters coming cause there are plenty of us up here in the snow vicariously living through your adventures.
