    Got an early start. I live in Minden Nevada about 8 mile south of the capitol Carson City. I stopped in Carson City and got gas an then ate a bagel at Schauts Bakery and off I went. I traveled toward Reno through Washoe valley it was about 65 deg so the weather was nice. I then took the Mt Rose turn off toward North shore Lake Tahoe. Mt Rose has a grade to the top of the mountain it has some wide twisties and well maintained. The AT handles great and very comfortable to ride. I got to the top of Mt Rose and the stopped for a pic and then headed down the mountain toward Lake Tahoe. I got down to the bottom made a left toward south Lake Tahoe. About another 20 mile or so I stopped at a visitor center and had a cup of coffee looked around and picked up some hiking and trail maps. I then got going again till I arrived at a beach area, sat at a bench for a bit had some water I brought. Then off again to state-line and stopped at Big Daddys and had a Burger, boy was it good. I then tooled around town a bit went up to Heavenly Ski Resort then started to head back home form there. It was a short trip about 90 miles or so but a beautiful ride. The Sierra Nevada mountains is a wonderful place to ride, the sites are breath taking. I used to live in the SF Bay area most of my life but made the change 6 years ago and never looked back. There is mile after mile of back roads/fire roads galore. I have not been off road yet but when I make a tire change I will. If you ever have a chance to ride this area you will be amazed. Take care all an be safe.

    Peace
    Jerry

    Since living in The SF bay area for so long only traveling to Lake Tahoe just for a weekend you really do not see the whole picture. Now that I live up here I go there alot and finally comb the whole area and enjoying every minute of it. As Ferris Buller said if you dont stop and take a look around once in awhile to world will pass you by. Take care...
