Figure I'd better repost this offer since no one took advantage of it.

So here's a great deal for inmates in the West. The first guy to purchase a set of my ProMoto Billet / Fastway threaded bar inserts, http://shop.ironmandualsport.com/pro...categoryId=210 gets a FREE entry for the 2013 Plumas Circumnavigator! These bar inserts work great, It seems no matter what brand Handguards you like they all have the same problem, the expansion bolt in the end of your bars always comes loose and never really keeps a good positive attachment for your handguards. These threaded inserts fix that problem for all Aluminum Bars. So there you go a great low priced product and a great ride!

Hey Motowest, thanks for posting info about my Mt. Shasta Dual Sport Ride!
I've been really busy the last couple of weeks and just haven't had the time to let guys know much about this ride. So here's a little info and a few pics from pre-riding the route.

This high mountain lake is the perfect place to cool off after lunch on day 1


This little trail is an option for the "A" riders
[IMG][/IMG]

Day 2 this ridgeline seems to go on forever


So it's 2 days of the best Dual Sport riding you'll find in Northern California. The ride stages on private property in Bella Vista, CA. about 10 miles East of Redding, there is free overnight camping the night before the ride. Our overnight destination is the town of Mt. Shasta and Ironman Dual Sport transports your overnight gear from the staging area to Mt. Shasta and back, all riders are responsible for there overnight accommodation at Mt. Shasta. There are great lunch stops both days with fuel available and the longest distance between gas stops is about 100 miles. There are "A", "B", and "C" tracks so riders of all skill levels are in for a great ride. to get signed up go to the website here, http://shop.ironmandualsport.com/pro...5&categoryId=2
And for more info or any questions just email me, bob@ironmandualsport.com
This is a ride you don't want to miss, hope to see lots of new friends there. Bob

Just thought maybe I'd add this in about the Mt, Shasta Dual Sport ride since it turned out to be quite an adventure. So this is a new ride this year and we usually ride somewhere in the area of 2000 miles to come up with a new route, just trying to find the best ways to make a perfect ride. Well even with all the information that we can get from Forest Service maps, Garmin Basecamp and Goggle Earth some times what looks like the perfect route just doesn't work out. While trying to work out a very challenging section for the "A" route and riding miles of fantastic trails. We we're headed down off the mountain only about 7 miles from HWY 5 when we started hitting downed trees, of course we're used to carrying chain saws on our bikes when we're out doing trail work but this wasn't one of those times. Well after jumping or lifting our bikes over several large trees we realized that it had taken us 3 hrs to go the last 3/10ths of a mile, it was getting late, we didn't have enough fuel to go back the way we came so our only choice was to continue downhill and hope we could make it out to the HWY. Well by 7 pm we were about beat to death, out of water and still at least 5 miles from the HWY and our trail had completely disapeered. At this point we decided we'd have to leave the bikes and try to hike out before it got dark. Well after a couple of miles we found a spring and refilled our camelbacks, the coolest best water I've ever had in my life. By 10:00 we were still miles away and this is very steep rocky terrain with just enough underbrush that there are no clear paths. Time to give up for the night. We found a relatively level clearing about 8 feet across and waited for the sun to come up, or I should say I waited my 19 year old son can sleep in any conditions, Kids. As soon as it was light again to see we started out after about 3 more hrs we made it out to HWY 5 and then just a short walk to a nearby gas station.
Next comes the bike rescue effort, after a day of rest we recruited the help of some very good friends with 1 4x4 quad and 1 4x4 Rhino side by side, 3 chain saws, plenty of fuel, food, and a cold beer or two. We trailer up to the nearest point we could get the 4x4 pickups. it took 5 guys 6hrs to get the Quads, fuel , beer , etc. down to the bike and then another 3 hrs to get back out. So for those of you who are able to make this ride trust me when I say a lot of hard work, blood, sweat and beers went into making this a great ride. Below are a few pics. Thanks Bob

Now that is some real trail-maintenance! I am planning on getting up there for this ride since I missed the Wildwood ride. Let's hope it isn't too hot up there!

John, the weather should be pretty good. During the pre-riding while the temps were around 110 in Redding most of our ride stayed in the 80s in fact it was kind of cool in the mornings. Let me know if you can make it so I can send you the ride info. Thanks Bob
