I might be able to provide some GPS routes and tracks for your June event. I have a very nice one right now that is good for all bikes. I have another for the westside of Hwy 41. Also Miami Trails off-road area is just west of Hwy 41. I hear there are some single track stuff there too. For the riders wanting more challenging I also might be able to provide which trails to take. I was on one challenging rocky downhill yesterday. It was lesson #1. That was intense and I'll do it again if I can find it. I'm not a seasoned rider. I go more for the moderate stuff as I learn. For anyone coming I suggest you get a set of Vehicle Use Maps of the Sierra National Forest. That way you can get really lost.
Lol even with the maps its easy to get lost. I love my back yard, and I don't play in it nearly enough. Hoping to do a ride camp ride with the mrs like we did two years back... SNF has plenty if you know where to look. Definately more than can be dualsported in a single weekend.

PURE EPICNESS! I hope I can do 1/10th of this one day but I fear I may have missed my chance already.

DTR! Good ta hear from ya... Yes yes I should just do it agreed 100%, its these pint sized humans in the house that I am responsable fer that hold me back. I think my wife would fit right in on the back of the 950, and with summers off fer her would be totally doable sans children.. 16 more years till they can fend for themselves yet... :p

That was one long ride but how cool to do it. I would like to try Mexico down to La Paz and take the ferry to Mazatlan.

How long have you owned that place? I have been there before for sure! Erm I think... About 6 years ago.

Looking into going myself, might be a few others lurking on going too. I'll have ta git back to you on that.

My wife's family has owned it since it was built in 90. There are like three family's on the deed. They sadly decided to put it on the market last year but no takers.. Hoping this year they change their mind. I have actually been thinking of running it by them to make it a rental.. we will see how things pan out

Alrighty... The 950 is ready for a little challenge. If supersprox would get back to me about a 48 tooth rear I would be happier, but as things sit now its good enough...

Just fine tuning from this point on I hope. Anyone feel like mobbing a BMW shop ride in June with me? I am dying to see one of them 1200's run flat on its back. :p

007 up to Shuteye like Mike said, and there are some other single track trails, but nothing " hardcore" like the Kern.
