CEDRIC warm-up ride

Jack's Ranch Cafe in Cholame at 10 AM. (What else is there in Cholame?)

I will leave the south entrance of the Carrizo at 8AM.

North to Coalinga, then west, then south. Route undetermined.

I look forward to our much anticipated meeting at Ojai's Deer Lodge at 8 AM, Saturday. I will come down 33 from the north.

BTW, did you see my post from earlly this week that DarrenO was "IN"? He is not on the "IN" list yet, but guys like him never are.
Yes, I did see that DarrenO is "IN". Thanks.

I have notified all the eating places that CEDRIC is coming. The reservations are in CEDRIC's name. I've even requested a few extra seats in case there are other nonconformists who may want to join us.

The Little Ninja That Could

David,

I just watched your Ninja video about your trip from CA to Key West to Prudhoe Bay.

It brought a tear to my eye. Not the bike or the sense of accomplishment, just the thought of parking my big fat ass on a motorcycle seat non-stop for 36 days. Ouch.

Nice job.

Stay on Tepusquet Rd for another mile and you can usually cross the river wash (often dry, graveled) directly to Foxen Cyn.
Ya miss "scenic" Sisquoc, but it saves a few blah miles.

I checked the former Tepusquet RD Sisquoc River crossing out pretty thoroughly. In the past it was possible to cross the "river" either with or without bridge present. The bridge is gone on top of that it looks like the waters of the mighty Sisquoc have turned the river banks into small cliffs. The only other options seemed to involve disregarding private property No Trespassing signs and some locked gates.

I hope we see and salute you

Sadly I don't have a bike for this weekend but hope you have a good time. Also hope to read reports from this weekend and connect with some of you and ride some of these roads later.

I'm looking for a good used 350-650cc dual sport for around town and exploring the local hills. A street registered Honda XR400R might be ideal. I'm willing to consider other bikes as well. Thanks.

Have fun! LD in SB

I don't remember there ever being a bridge crossing the Sisquoc on Tepusquet.

The gates are closed when there has been rain and usually open back up when it dries out enough to run a grader over it. Last time I tried to cross it, about a month ago there was still water in it. So it could be open or it could still be closed, Computorless said he would prolly be up there today and would let know.

I may have to cut loose with my '07 drz400 soon. Lots of upgrades will let you know in a week or so.

I'm sure there was a bridge there the first time I rode across.

Like virginity, it was my first time and I was drunk so it may not count.

It was definitely sure as poop a no-go the last time when I checked it out a few weeks ago.

There was never a bridge, just some big culverts covered with earth. It washes out every year with the rains. The only bridge is on Santa Maria Mesa Road (the one you/we will be riding) that intersects Tepusquet.

The earthen crossing goes between Tepusquet Road and Foxen Cyn Road, and is currently fenced and lock-gated. Not passable now, but no problem.

Hey everyone, GSWayne and I will be joining you for breakfast on Saturday at the Deer Lodge. We aren't planning on doing the whole ride, though.
