For those wanting a little practice I will be out at Hollister Hills on Saturday. Probably camping in Walnut or Madrone. All of the greens and most of the blues are big bike friendly. I have tried some of the blacks... it was interesting.
If you are interested drop me a PM. If you decide just to show up look for a yellow F800 GS ('09) with a vanity plate equating to Combat Pay. Plated bikes enter free, so casual dual sporting is cheap. You might also look for a tan Ford F150 king cab.
I will spend most of the day on a pure dirt bike but always take the BMW for a couple of laps just to prove she can do it.
