keeping the thread alive
This Sacramento rider did the dualsport thing with buddies on sunday.
Oh yes, the weather/temp/dirt dampness were all you could ask for!
Toured the shirtail/yankee jims burn area...
To me it looks like the fire was a good thing in the way it cleared all the low brush (poison oak) off the hillside sparing the big trees.
From ophir to breakfast in auburn, frontage roads to canyon way/yankee jims, shirtail canyon to big dipper, iowa hill road and elliot ranch road. Scratchout session...foresthill road to michigan bluff/down to eldorado creek. Gorman ranch road to mosquito ridge road and back to foresthill road. We skipped ponderosa way cause the sun was getting low, the butt's were getting tired. Highspeed run back down across the foresthill bridge and back to ophir.
There's a video with camcorder footage and stills...
