Chico, Ca Dualsport Riders

Hey everyone

I'm in Chico and ride a Triumph Tiger. Looking for people to ride with. I want to explore the off road stuff around the Chico area and foothills.

The area is full of dual sport riding! There is a vast network of logging roads that conect to higways and national parks. There's lots of routes through Chico to Chester, Lassen, Quincy, and beyond.........

I'm reluctant to get to "out there" on my own because of the risk factor of solo riding.

I'm in Paradise and can ride almost anytime. I've got a Vstrom 1000 and a DRZ 400. How is that Tiger off road. My Vstrom sucks off road but the DRZ is great.

to that area probably next spring. I'll be looking for a riding partner also. Put me on your friends list and keep me in mind. I'm up there usually once a month at this point but usually working. used to live up there in the mid-80's and miss it. Looking forward to getting back there and doing more riding.

Let's Ride!

I just moved to Chico a week ago to attend Chico State in the fall. It would be cool to meet some other people in town. I went up to the High Lakes a few days ago, but am trying to find something else that is close by with some mountain trails.

Im in Chico and I know most all the trails in the mountains around here,the trick is they are mostly two stroke oriented single track and there are more blown down trees this year then ever. Lots of dirt/gravel roads going every which way,the silt beds are getting deep by now which can be tricky.
We went out yesterday(sunday) and rode backroads to Philbrook lake,we were stopped by 6ft snow banks at 6500 ft elevation and had to take a lower road to get there. Then we took a well established trail towards Butte Meadows,ended up being many bent over and blown over tress,we had to bushwack around some way out in the woods and cut some others to get through. I have a plated DRZe Suzuki 400 and a DR650 that is better for long dirt/pavement jaunts.

Early morning rides are good with 100+ temps going on currently.

A buddy of mine is getting a dualsport business started out of Chico,we just did a 400 miler to the coast and back a couple weeks ago,had 30 guys sign up,it was a fun 2 day ride. His site is www.ironmandualsport.com

Also there is a local club called the Paradise Ridge riders,they are based out of Paradise but half the meetings are in Chico,they are a good group and theres a few dualsport riders in it. www.paradiseridgeriders.com is their site I believe. Not much of a site but has some contacts on it.

wasn't sure how you got to HiWay 32, so I took another look at Google Maps and can see you can take Lassen Trail and intersect HiWay 32.
From what I see you can go all over the place if the roads are open and ridable.
I have a track from Cohasset Rd. to Ponderosa Rd. to Plum Creek Rd. to Little Grant Rd. to HiWay 36. Not sure thats the best way. But I have not been their before so it's all new to me.
Would like to join you guys next time you go!

Looks like the weather is calling for rain pretty much every day for the next week.

I was planning to go on a guided ride down in Modesto on Sunday, but it is so far, I'm thinking I wont.

Bob, does your Tiger have a topcase with big round eye bolts for ties downs on the top? I almost gave your bike (if that was it) a fake parking ticket downtown today, but didn't in case it wasn't yours ;)

As bad as I want to ride....

I'm kind of tired of the rain and cold. I've got a friend coming up from southern Cal in a couple of weeks so I need to get off my butt and get my place settled in. Spent most of last weekend cleaning up downed trees on my Ma's property after the snow we had. It's going to be a busy spring. Can't wait for some sunshine.

The next weekend with some sun shining, or at least just cloudy, I'm in for a ride. I'll let you know if I can ride when my friend gets here, he's bringing his bike, my old 1990 KLR. I miss that bike, should have kept it.

I'm in the process of plating my 525 currently. When done, which should be soon, I'll be interested in some D/S rides. What type of rides is this group currently doing? More single track and connecting trials, or mostly fire roads? From skimming over the thread I suspect the latter? Anyway, I'll touch base when the screamin' pumkin is plated!! I'm in Chico.
