I just posted this on the Flea Market page here. More reputable place and people! I'm not desperate to sell but want to thin out to 2 bikes. I actually have more fun on the DR350 than I do on the DRZ.

This was listed earlier today on the flea market page here. This is my 2nd response to you in a 1/2 hour. I don't know what happened to the 1st.

Nothing in the way of singletrack, but plenty of dirt roads, some 4x4 trails. Well, wait, I guess there's supposed to be some singletrack out of Millwood, but I haven't checked it out. I think they were roads that were later restricted to moto only, so not true narrow stuff. And that's a little further away and lower/hotter anyway. You can pick up a pretty good map from the ranger office in Dunlap, not the MVUM, but the bigger, nicer, Motor Vehicle Opportunity Guide. It will have many of the roads listed, and many rated for difficulty level as well. Gas at Hume and Stony Creek, Hume has much better food/snacks/supplies (but no beer, it's a christian town...). Good burgers and milkshakes at Hume. Man could I go for one of those burgers right now...

When are you going? What will you be on?

noob ride

thanks for the response Pcvance and Hesaid. I live in miramonte and am fairly familiar with the area in a general sense, hiked in jenny lakes to go fishing etc, have been up to buck rock on my v strom etc. My friend sfeatherstone 22 sugested a ride in the millwood area, but i want to stay higher in this heat if at all possible. I have ridden down to davis flat from dehlilah lookout area on my klr. this trip would be on my beta 520 and shaun on his drz400 and would be this weekend and you are more than welcome to come along , any suggestions would be welcome. ironbasher

I hope it doesnt jump the road towards wf,praying that they get a handle on this fire,it could be bad news if it gets out of control.

The wife and I took a cage drive up to Hume last Sunday to escape the heat. (I can't get her on the back of a bike for the life of me. The last time was in 1977!) But I digress. It was a wonderful 80 degrees and the wind came in as the thunderheads were building. We of course had to have our beloved Burgers and Fries. They beat anything we can get in Fresno; short of mine! We finished it off with a scoop of chocolate malt crunch ice cream topped off with a scoop of vanilla. It grew darker. We left before any sprinkles could fall on her freshly washed RAV4. Pity. We came back to 108 degrees in Fresno.

I'm hoping I can make the upcoming Noob Ride. Family and work will take precident.

On another note:
ADVrider is the greatest! I post my DRZ in the flea market about 1PM today and have a deal with a So Cal inmate by 7pm. Press the EASY button!

We were there on Saturday, no burger, just a shake and some gas.

Regarding the Noob Ride, don't let family and work take precedent... Take the family and make them work! They could set up camp for you, go on beer runs for you, wash your bike, lube your chain... It's great plan!

(lemme know how it works out for you)

Here is a Google Earth overlay of the 2003 Off Highway Vehicle Guide for Sequoia Nat Forest that someone did. It is pretty cool! It should still be pretty accurate.

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/p0hh3x8z4...ho6QR9ulJKNkta (Hume Lake OHV 2003)
If you already have Google Earth on your computer just download the file then click on it and it will open in Google Earth. If you like it, move it to "My Places" to keep it. You can uncheck the box to hide it from view.

big meadows ride

It looks like it is on for sunday, exact start time tbd, starting in miramonte, up 245 to hogback to sierra glen,eshom valley to whittaker forest(first dirt)up to generals highway to big meadows rd, detour to Buck Rock lookout and onto end of big meadows rd at summit meadow (14s11) exploration of dirt adjacent as desired. sfeatherstone said he would come to my house possibly with Mckay, If sierra glen is a more convenient start point that is ok too. ironbasher

There is a trail called verplank on this overlay that looks like it would be fun!
