Good idea. NorCal for me is just North of Sac too.

Other than GCDSR and SNA, I'm not aware of any any other ADV/DS dirt rider groups around here. I'm done with 450s and the same OHV parks, looking more for 650/690 dirt riders setting up 50/50 street-dirt and backroad day rides. And you?

I have a 2002 KLR 650 set up for street and dirt. Just wanted to find some riders up here and start off on some fireroads and head up from there. Ive ridden street more than dirt so I have some things to learn.

I am jumping right in.
New to Redding, I live in Red Bluff, and ride.
Lots of people ride. But seems everyone rides different styles.
Jobs and Family or what ever.
What do you ride ? I ride a 650 BMW Dakar and split my dirt to street Ratio at about 60/40 with more street miles. I would rather that number be more dirt/gravel but That is hard to achieve when I never tow my bike to go riding.

There is a Chico area riders Thread on here that may be interesting for you. I mainly only watch that but at times will pay attention to the " west coast" specific forum.

the chico Thread also has some experienced people that do some event type rides as well as just planning out routes on there own.

I tend to ride East and West as well as North out of Red Bluff and ride the Trinities Siskiyou's Medocino Burney Shasta and all other areas within 150 miles the way the crow flies of Red Bluff. That puts me out in the back woods , or the High desert also the coast.

So Faceman what do you ride.

When can you ride

The weather is cooling a bit. I just returned from a tough weekend on the Trials bikes. I need a little dual sport ride soon. Maybe need to heal a bit first. Keep me in mind, I don't always make it over to other threads other than the Chico one I have marked as a favorite.
