Hi BigNastybrp,

Hope you guys had a good trip! We're planning/hoping to ride the KLRs down to Saline Valley for Thanksgiving ... depending on the weather, I suppose ...

Looking forward to hearing about your trip, and any news about getting in and out of the Saline Valley ...

see you around the campfire,
-- SFMCjohn

Hi ReferJohn,

Nice Honda and nice Harley ... I have an '85 FXSB (Evo in Shovel-head four-speed frame) ... been up to Alaska a couple of times (not on my Harley), and 80% of the bikes I saw on the Alcan were Harleys ...

Most of my Harley buddies who are also on ADVrider have a KLR as their dual-sport bike ... nice to see your cool XR-L!

see you in the parking lot,

Dirtbag Challenge and Moto GP ...

Hi all,

Hoping to see the usual suspects this afternoon at the Dirtbag Challenge! We'll be wandering around looking at all the cool bikes between 2 and 4 pm ...

After the Dirtbag, we'll be showing MotoGP at the San Francisco Motorcycle Club starting at around 5pm ... it's the last Moto GP race of the season ... 18th Street and Folsom ...

BAARCers always welcome!

See you at the fountain,
-- SFMCjohn

Hi everyone! I just picked up a 2000 W650 two weeks ago! I had 7022 when I bought it from my neighbor. Looking forward to meeting new people in around the SF Bay Area. Also on BARF and I think there are BARF members on here as well!

Hipstergram pic!

Hi Molly,

Yes, that was me and my favorite red suspenders ...

It was great to meet you and put a face with an avatar ... enjoyed hearing about your upcoming sabbatical and your plans for going for a long ride!

Hope the plans work out for you and that you post a lot of pics for us ...

see you around the campfire,
-- SFMCjohn

Hi Just Paul,

Cool, if things work out we should see you in Saline Valley ... our pal is in a blue grass band and a bunch of his friends will be playing and singing around the campfire, if they can get their rental cars to the oasis ... ha.

Will you be two up on the 990? Are you planning on taking Steele Pass over to Beatty via Goldpoint ... and how are you planning on getting from Beatty to Panamint?

We're hoping to ride from San Francisco ... kind of hoping we can get over 50 and then head south, because I just slogged from SF down to Lake Isabella recently and don't want to do that again ... we'll probably head back via the Carrizo Plain and Parkfield ...

Hope to see you around the campfire, soon!

Sorry to say but it was a no go. I got sick and the weather turned cooled so I was in bed all weekend.

Hi BigNastybrp,
My wife was sick last week, too ... going around I guess ... rain will cancel our trip, also, but so far the weather looks good ...

Hey ReferJohn,
Loved Hey Day at the old San Jose Family Camp on Labor Day ... Rainbow Pool, was that the name of the swimming hole? They moved it to a new place up near Tahoe now ... too bad ... Thanks for the kind words about the club! Maybe we'll see you on the Oakland MC's Sheetiron next season?
see you around the campfire,

Anyone up for a day ride South Bay Fri-Sun?

Hey,
Anyone up for a day ride in the South Bay? Morgan Hill, Gilroy, Santa Curz Mts etc.
I ride a street legal WR250 X with treaded tires so hard pack and dirt roads, trails are fun. Anyone up for riding the Santa Cruz Mts, back roads, dirt roads etc.? I'm open Fri thru Sunday.

Hard Working Dog... come on down, you can check out the Transition at the same time...
