I'll try and give you a call if I think of it. We are in Chapparal campground on the south end of the track near the entrance. Space is across from the bathhouse. Come by for a beer. We'll have CCTV and chairs on the hill overlooking the track/exhibits. Lot's o' eats and beverages.

Yes, they broadcast the entire event and one of the guys brings a satelite dish so if you're not sitting at the track and are back at camp you can stay caught up on the action. EZ-Ups, tables, bbq's, coolers, and beer. We'll have it all. It's a big party for 3 days, then a fun ride home from Monterey.

Saturday night is 'bike night' downtown Monterey. Last time I rode down for it there were ten thousand motorcycles lining the streets. It's epic. The problem is you have to watch your beer intake all day if you want to ride downtown for it. Talk about a party in the streets!

One of the hilights are the electric race bikes. Yep, electric powered grand prix road race bikes. They are amazingly fast. I toured their pit area and the technology they are developing is mind boggling. They're not quite up to the regular bikes, but damn fast nonetheless. And they are really quiet!! Lots of whining and whirring.

Original emphasis is getting big bike ADV/DS/XC riders off the tarmac and fire roads and pushing the limits while expanding the experience level and adventure. So as quoted in the original thread post:

"Like the dinosaurs that used to roam the earth but were wiped out, apparently by a huge asteroid, ADVrider was also once a place where big bikes were more abundant.
ADVrider was created to support the horizon-chasing adventure motorcycling community. Because of that, we support free-wheeling thinking, great pictures and stories, those who aren't afraid to turn a wrench (and those who have turned them with trepidation), and riders who respect the diversity that makes the planet worth traveling.
ADVrider is certainly diverse, but isn’t always a place where that diversity is respected, especially for us big-bike riders. The common joke about us involves use of the word “Starbucks” (insert laughter). We get it. KLR riders are cheap, KTM riders wear nothing but orange and big bike riders (particularly the GS/GSA’s) never venture beyond Starbucks. It's funny because there’s an element of truth to it.


This thread, “B E Y O N D S T A R B U C K S” is intended as a place for big-bike riders in the West Region to discuss bikes, gear, farkles, riding, trip planning, training, etc… amongst others of like mind. This thread is not a place to disrespect the diversity that is ADVrider. Trolls, haters and bike fascists are free to bash in Jo Mama.


Most importantly though, us big bike riders with less off-road experience need to venture beyond our local coffee shop. Go ahead, get your bike dirty. Adventure doesn’t have to mean an 18 month journey through Asia and Africa, but neither is it a quick ride down Laguna Canyon Road and back.


Big bikes are great at touring and there will be touring opportunities. Big bikes are great on the street and there will be opportunities to ride plenty of twisties, as well as participate in track days. The most exciting opportunities will be off-road in events geared for the big bike. We’ll plan our own big-bike rides, as well as be part of other rides throughout the year.


For you more seasoned big bike riders, step up and show some leadership here. Give something back to the community that gave you your intro to adventure.

Big Bike Friendly Rides:

San Diego Back Country Adventure Route: 1/1/12 (CA Stu)
2012 Carrizo Plains-Pozo-Camino Cielos Ride 1/28-29 (H8Chains)

Cheers, I see this lasting a week...
You don't get it do you? The first thread was doomed because of what it stood for as later demonstrated by the OP's attitude, not in general, but in detailed by the OP from the get go and throughout his posts.

If you want this to survive, let it go and go with the flow. We all support the general idea.

We all support big bike rides and NOOBs learning more, what we don't support is division of any sort, so if this is your groove then move on.

What you are doing would be considered trolling by the mods, so don't go the "way of the dinosaurs" by posting the same shit twice. Once at 4:44 and again at 4:57.

We get it, you loved Fudgy. So then go start an "Ode to Fudgy" thread. Good luck with that.

Grinch is trying to keep things on track this time, so let's not fuck it up again.

That's too much leg showing for a pic on ADV!

Hope it heals up so you can get out and ride again soon.

It's not about trying to be persistent, just thought it was jacked up somehow. You mates want to carry on he idea w/Grinch's thread then so be it. I don't really care as long as the intent of the original thread was about big bike riders getting away from the pavement and having fun, gaining experience and sharing. Cool. Lotts of love here brother.

Yes I hope so. Laying on the couch with my foot up watching all the drama unfold is getting old. Have to charge my poor iPhone 4x a day!
