Can't wait! I got 2nd place last year, I'm bringing something faster this year so bring your best. Or just something reliable because I will probably melt something........

Just for general info, the Lost Sierra festival is kit-friendly. You can have a factory ebike, but they like kits too...

This one fact might turn the Lost Sierra into the most innovative event for ebikes...

Looks like real fun. Bet we could see some cutting edge machines there.

Most likely, I will be going to Texas? For my little brother's wedding. Sigh.

Hey devo, I'll tell him to join up. I know he lurks. I told him I'm coming and he said he'd make it up. He's recuperating from an injury so who knows in what shape he'll be but I hope he makes it.

I do not yet have a bike. I was about to make an impulse buy of the Sur Ron X but held off. I think I want a more cyclebike than emotorcycle, although line is getting blurry. I've seen Nick's private stash so I may have him build me one. He's way ahead of me on the learning curve and I don't mind sharing my hard earned cash with him. We go way back.
See you there...I'll be in the dark grey Taco w shell and racks...and no bike ;-(

So exactly where is this event going to be? From what I could read, it's in Beckwourth, CA, but not really sure.

OK, thanks for posting that. On Google street view, it looks like out in the middle of nowhere. Could become the next Burning Man.

Burning Bike?

It definitely is, very cool landscape. Stark contrast to all the tourist I live amongst just 40min away. You coming? You have a surron, right?

I'd love to come but not sure the wife will let me. Yes, I have a Sur-ron and several ebikes.

Where does everybody stay?

Thanks, we try to have an open door style and be inclusive of all ebike variations. Hopefully, as you mentioned, it will keep the innovation moving and the attraction coming...
