So her's a little bit more about the Emigrant Trails and Soldier Meadow rides.

The enthusiasm from you So. Cal. guys is Great!!

I'm always amazed at how much water there is in the desert in early summer.





You can still see the ruts from the wagon wheels of pioneers on there way to Oregon in the mid 1800s

on this section of the Applegate Trail.



And I can't even count how many old mines, ranches, and homesteads we explore.







On the second day of both rides near the end of our day we visit the site of the

B-24D Crash site in Southern Oregon. On February 9th 1945 the 11 member crew left Gowen Field

Near Boise Idaho for a Training mission to Hamilton Field in California. The plane crashed on the

rocky peaks at about 10:00 pm that night all crewmen were lost







Well so there's a little more about the rides I'll post a little more later
.
Thanks Bob

i plan on heading up your way next summer.

i've spent plenty of time in Chico. i was on my 1977 Honda 550F and explored some of the gravel mountain roads about 10 years ago.

i love it up there. i could see living there someday.

i'll hit you up when i plan a trip up there.

Well time I got back to this thread, so I'll start out with another

FREE entry into the BOOMTOWN RALLY. This is a a fantastic ride,

September 28th and 29th with a different loop each day from the

Boomtown Casino just West on Reno Nevada. I've got A,B,and C loops

on this ride so it's great for any riders from A level single track to scenic

Adventure bike routes. So this time there's a hook ( I've got to make a

living somehow ) the first inmate to purchase ANYTHING from the

Ironman Dual Sport Gear and Parts Store,

http://shop.ironmandualsport.com/cat...2?categoryId=8

Wins the FREE entry. I sell every product from the manufactures listed

even if it doesn't show up in the store and just added REKLUSE auto clutches

so if you don't see it listed send me an email bob@ironmandualsport.com

or the old fashioned way just call me at 530-680-6019

Here's some pics and video I through together from pre- riding

the Boomtown Rally. Thanks and I can't wait to see who wins. Bob

Thanks roundtripping ! I have to admit when I first saw this thread I figured

my little business would be lost in a sea of vendors post from companies that

have a huge developed product line and developed advertising. To my surprise

so far it's just been me, must admit I kind of like the opportunity. So here's some

more. Of course the FREE entry for the Boomtown Rally is still available that's

$100 entry for a great ride just for buying anything in my Gear and parts Store,

http://shop.ironmandualsport.com/cat...2?categoryId=8

Of course being an AMA promoter and putting on some of the best dual sport

rides in the country doesn't quite pay the bills. I spend most of the winter months

wrenching on bikes in my shop and rely heavily on my online store for support

I work pretty hard to make sure the products I carry are the best you can buy

Here are a few of the brands we just added


Double Take Mirrors, you've seen them, read about them, etc. They're Great!!

and of course you can buy them here, http://shop.ironmandualsport.com/cat...categoryId=219




REKLUSE auto clutches, I just became a Rekluse dealer last week. Can't wait

to try this out on the trails this weekend, and check out the added left hand rear brake!

I've had Rekluse clutches on bikes before and several of the guys I ride with love them

All I can say is every good thing you've heard about Rekluse is true. Buy them here

http://shop.ironmandualsport.com/cat...categoryId=220








Golan, Super Mini fuel filter. If you have a fuel injected bike you need one of these!

In fact with all the garbage in our fuel and what I see in the bowl or clogging the jets

of the carbs I work on, these are going on all my bikes. You guessed it you can buy them here,

http://shop.ironmandualsport.com/cat...categoryId=221



Well that's all for now, thanks for taking the time to look at my stuff and remember to

Great !!! Scott. I look forward to having you on the ride! Send me an email,

bob@ironmandualsport.com so I can get your contact info etc. I'll also send

you a discount code to use during checkout for any purchase in the Gear and Parts Store.

Strange as it may seem I rarely get a chance to go on other guys rides, we have a pretty big

"secret" single track trail system that I spend a lot of time riding and maintaining. Plus I'm one

of those guys who's fighting the Forest Service for every inch of trail we can open or get approved.

Along with that, putting on my own rides, I'm always trying to explore new routes for new rides.

I generally ride about 2000 miles to come up with the tracks for a 350 -,400 mile two day ride.

Anyone can ride from point A to point B or look on the map and connect dirt roads, but to make a

Great Ride you have to get out there and ride every road, trail etc. to find the good stuff.

Yep, it sucks but I'm a gluten for punishment. Well enough of that, look forward to riding

with you Scott and thanks again. Bob



Here's a little something, don't laugh to hard

Well like I've said before, I'm terrible at taking pictures and videos.

So in an effort to get some really cool video I decided to mount the GoPro

on different locations on my bike while out riding the trails. Didn't work out so well.



Join the Ironman Dual Sport Riders Club and get a chance to ride all the great rides

you may never see on video! http://www.ironmandualsport.com

Well this offer is only good for inmates who live a reasonable driving

distance from my shop in Chico, CA. but I'm offering FREE installation

with the retail purchase or any Rekluse EXP Clutch. No real sales pitch

here just a great deal on a great product. So if you've been thinking

about getting a Rekluse Clutch, riding without stalling, riding faster

and easier. You can purchase all Rekluse products at the Ironman Dual Sport

Gear and Parts Store here, http://shop.ironmandualsport.com/cat...categoryId=220

And contact me at, bob@ironmandualsport.com to schedule your installation
