Hey Kenny, Eric here. I live in Gilroy, I also own a 650L (675 high compresion motor) and yes I would be interested in doing some rides in the future. Will be gone riding long distance this weekend but later on I would be interested.

Also interested in some rides in your area.

Many times when out on 25 on my street bikes I see a lot of trailered off roaders taking a left about 40 miles south of Hollister southeast towards Coalinga. Isn't there a dedicated off road area or track out there somewhere?

I imagine you're thinking of Clear Creek which, at the moment, has been "temporarily" closed by the BLM because of what they deem a health risk from naturally occurring asbestos in the soil. It is a sore spot with many local riders who have riding there for decades as kids and with their kids with zero health issues. Ask anyone in the area who rides and you'll get an earful. :(

Hi Kenny

I have the exact same problem, I have bikes, experience and no one to ride with. What makes it worst is, I have a place in northern Cal that I can stay at and ride from, with hundreds if not thousands of miles of back roads, fire roads, trails and single track in the area. I have ridden a lot of the area in the past. If any of this interests you let me know.

You can ride the County roads. Clear Creek road through to New Idria. You can even do an out and back towards Santa Rita Peak on R11.


I do a loop through there a few times a year.

Hi Everyone - It has been a while since I lurked around here.... I lead a monthly Adventure Ride up an down the Central Sierra range. I work at Cycle Specialties BMW Triumph in Modesto. I try to aim for the 3rd Sunday of the month. We usually have 10-20 riders each month. Rides are free and something i started doing because there are lots of people looking for riding buds. This is a great way to meet a few!

The rides are not gnarly. I try to make them fun without getting people in over their heads.

If you would like to be on my email list, just shoot me a PM with your email address.

Cheers!
Gail

Tony, check the Chico Dual Sport Riders thread occasionally. Several of the locals get up to or near you fairly often. You have suggested several interesting overnight rides in the past that I was very tempted to try and join. The timing didn't work but maybe it will sometime.
