No I hadn't seen that. Pretty impressive.

Were they all riding Guzzi's?

Redwave... That is where we were on Saturday right? I think I rode that last weekend. If so lots of nice wide fire roads, and plenty of opportunities to turn off and single track if he is feeling brave too.

Hey y'all-
I'm doing the Redwood Rendezvous Sept24-26 on the FZ1. Anyone who went to the Mojave Desert trip met Bob (2old2race) on the XR440. He's meeting me at Gilroy on his way up. Anyone in our group down with a more street-orientd rally? Let me know. You guys with the BMWs will feel at home - I think 99% of the bikes there are Beemers.

Picture book :o)

Thought that someone may want to take a look at this.........

I've been taking pages from this online book, in the form of print screen & paste into MS Paint , that is awsome. Its called Backcountry Adventures Northern California and it contains every OHV route, dirt road with points of interest for our entire area. It has maps, pics, descriptions, and even GPS coordinates-thinking about buying it from Brns & Nble, 40 bucks but looks well worth it.

Lee Lichtenberger?

Skanave,

No, I sure don't, does he know a Paccassi ? We're far & few between and most likely all related somehow.

The name looked familiar and I was told Joe was an active DS rider from the central valley. I helped out Lee with some computer stuff and we got to talking about motorcycles and he told me about his friend Joe P. I was taking a wild guess.

Thanks ShazamDRZ!

Do you know if the USGS maps show locked/unlocked gates & when they open, if they do? I am reluctant to use trails.com only because I registered once to get a free map & then was never able to get the map they said was free, after that I never logged back on to their site, but got spammed by them for like 4 years afterwards .

Question -Sat- Star Lakes

Thinkin' of Star Lakes tomorrow, any takers?

Still need a tire, is the D606 the only suggestion?

Skanave, I use a plain ole forest service map, got it at the ranger station in N.F.

Mo, I'm up for your challenge but I need a tire, you'll probably outride me anyway and I couldn't protect my bike's honor.., but a friendly round of 'eat my dust' sounds like good times.

HST, your invited too... dead carcass my left foot!...are you guys going camping? I may ride up with you
