Dedicated to Tacos + Rose 2 Keys

I called XTeric this weekend and he was at Costco. He was rolling solo, as the family didn't want to join him. He was there for one purpose. FT3. Shopping for FT3 Untethered. Getting supplies. If you ask yourself, who is most dedicated to FT3's untethered status, it is clearly XTeric, he is FT3's Golden Boy. He spent the evening last night working on NoCar's hammered bike as well. Three cheers for XTeric. Alas, tonight we go untethered once again. Don't miss it.

It is also notable that Unknown Local was in MT Riding with B this weekend. Strong work UL!!





And of significant importance, tonight we will discuss the Rose-Keys LRP going down this weekend.

Here's what I know.


Head count: Cap'n, NoCar, XTeric, Fro, Newb, UL for half ride? Any others?
  1. On Saturday we need to make a food and drink drop along Kingsbury. 
  2. Do a ride with Cappy if your available to leave early (I am leaving Pville before Noon on Saturday to get a short Tahoe ride in before the evening festivities at the Keys house, if you can join me hit me up.)
  3. Meet at the Keys house, time TBD (Fro please advise).  How many does Keys house sleep, should we bring pads and sleeping bags etc? 
  4. Make dinner (what do we all bring to contribute?). Will there be tacos?


  1. Wake Early. Eat breakfast (what should we bring?) McDonalds stop? Hah ha  
  2. Depart in XT's van (Time?) to Rose. 
  3. Ride alllll day. 
  4. Drop Armstrong/Corral and roll to Keys House. 
  5. Return to Rose to get van if needed. 
  6. Go home happy. 


  1. In tonight
    Arrival time to the house anytime after 5:00 (will be out on the lake with family before that)
    Will have dinner going shortly there after.
    There are two beds available and plenty of floor or couch space. Bring a sleeping bag.
    Shuttle driver is set bring $20 for the driver and $5 gas for the van.

  2. Full event calendar. Can I book rose to keys on event brite ? Ha. In for tonight UNLESS I decide to head to Santa Cruz for a day of surfing.

  6. Fro thanks for hosting 🙌🏼
    XT thanks for sharing #vanlife 🙌🏼
    Awesome ride! A few pics from the day.


    1. Thanks for sharing the picture link, Phantom; some good ones in there. As can be seen in the last one the Norco probably saw more air time on Sunday than all previous rides combined. Juuuuuuust kidding, of course - it’s usual pilot has the real ill skillz.

      More pics below for those that may not have already seen the link via the backchannels.
