Great idea Todd. I'm also on BARF and SBR (same user name) and interested in ADV style rides around the Bay area.

Currently I'm trying to figure out which desert ride to go on. I'm keen on the Ridgecrest 250, but have also seen others that sound interesting.

I'm willing to ride there and back (be great with company), though if someone has spare room on a trailer for a KTM690E, then that'd be the ride for me

I have been to Baja on a dirt bike, Ensenada-Mike’s-San Felipe and back and would like to do more ADV riding so I bought a GS Dakar… Riding Hollister on the KTM 525 this Friday…. I also just put some new knobblies on the GS so keep this post alive!

Subscribed. I did Trinity/Lost Coast/Mendo Nat'l Forest and Death Valley last year on my KTM. I'd love to join for some 1 or 2 day rides around the bay area.

---great trip and it looked like fun! Great suggestion with the DuraLog, too. I carried two along on a recent trip and they worked great.

Countdown does a nice job on this ride. There are lots of options for both days. I'll likely do it again.

I rode both Saturday and Sunday and had the best weekend of dirt riding in the last year... the adobe side was open both days the the adobe side hills were super tacky...

Just found this thread.
Ok so....

What are the rides coming up? I'm trying to plan some local fun for the next two month's weekends, some of them already booked.
