Dual Sport Ride in Gold Country This Wkend:200 miles, LongBarn

ooooh. Hot Springs! Thanks, Double D Looked like a nice, pretty clean soaker. Thanks for sharing. Wow. There's some good stuff here.

Here's a dual sport ride that my friend is putting on. It's designed to be a smaller crowd than the Sheetiron and even though the lodge is sold out, call up the lodge to see if you can camp on the grass or camp nearby or stay at another place nearby.

I've taken my Strom on some of this route and did fine. It's not exactly all 2 wheel drive fire roads and there are some water crossings. There will be hard splits that may have a snow challenge to work through or work around. 100 miles a day, two days. Many of you guys on this thread are way advanced riders and know the riding areas well. However, if you are new to the area or to dual sporting, then having a package dual sport ride may be a great way to get acclimated.


Enjoy your weekend.

Anybody interested in the Adventure Ride by Adventure Designs in Hayward July 2?

They will be going North of Golden Gate and hitting some dirt up there.

hey Hobbes.

KTM 640 Adventure, Ride a lot of street and some dirt. Never ridden dirt 2 up before, probably like to stick to dirt/gravel roads and stay of the single track at this point.

Thanks

Tim

Laugh Up to the Lost Coast & Avenue of the Giants

I caught one of YFFs in Pt. Reyes yesterday when I was snapping pix of the town.
I also saw a bunch of KTM 950/990 Adventurers riding south on 1, not sure if they were ADVers though...

I've never ridden all the way up CA-1 but I did yesterday and spent the night in Garberville with a bunch of Harley fools. I dunno if there was a big H-D event going on but I saw a ton of "rolling thunder trains" on 101 this morning, and on my way back from "Avenue of the Giants" and the Lost Coast there was bunch of old BMWs, Nortons and Triumphs in Garberville around lunch time. Even saw one cool old Honda too.




Lost Coast


I think this could use a little TLC

Here are a couple loops-

http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF&msa=0&msid=
215668852788439390774.0004a6aa8f41978b364b2

215668852788439390774.0004a6a9e8873df41ef61

Both have only about 15 miles of dirt, but there is exploring that can be done on both.
Yankee Jims is also close to Forest Hill OHV, or you can head out to the town of Forest Hill and Mosqito Ridge Road which is a fabulous piece of tarmac.
