I'll be on my KTM 990 Adv, so this ride will be big bike friendly, but you'll need decent dirt tires for the last few miles.

Let me know if any of you are interested in going along and I'll come up with a more exact starting time and meeting place.
Scott,

This sounds like a great ride, and should be able to make it. I'm near placerville so would need to meet you near auburn? If anyone in our area wants to ride over, let me know.

David

Photos from the ride on Saturday:

Trying to figure out where we are and where we need to go


I think one of the KLRs got a flat back there


Things like flat tires help to make the ride an "adventure"


Tire is fixed, let's hit the road


All of us in Downieville at the lunch stop


End of the road - we weren't the only motorcycles up there


You can see a long way in all directions up there


It's a bit of a hike from the gate to the top


Just need to climb a few stairs and we're at the top


The whole group at the top of Sierra Buttes

Fordyce Jeep Trail Saturday the 26th

Up and back. Weather should be good. Taking a trials bike, but most any dirtbike could work.

OK, Rubicon on Sunday instead. Fordyce the following weekend maybe.

StuInFH screwed with this post 10-23-2013 at 02:21 PM Reason: Changing ride to Rubidon Sunday

Ugly dusty out there right now, but chance of rain/snow in the Sierras on Monday .. If that happens I may be in for the Sierras on Tuesday.

Wet dirt is calling me in the Sierras, so i plan to head that way tomorrow. If anybody is interested we could meet in Colfax around 9AM. Route depends on the snow and temps. It would be nice to head up Lowell Hill or the powerline Rd to Hwy 20 and on to Bowman/Graniteville (or Washington/Graniteville) and perhaps Plumbago to Alleghany. The DOT cams show snow sticking 5000 ft now near Blue Canyon. I will be a on big bike (950).
