Cow Mountain

Went on a loop up to Cow Mountain a couple of weeks ago - SF to Ukiah, Talmadge Road through Cow Mountain over to Clear Lake, Old Toll Road back to the 101.

While in Cow Mountain I decided to try one of the intermediate trails (Trail 11 if you know the area). I'd been on the beginner trails before and they were pretty easy on my KTM990. Pretty stupid in hindsight. It was nearly 100 degrees that day, no one was out there, and if something had gone wrong I would have been in deep shit. The trail was really steep and rocky, with very limited traction. I'm crawling downhill at the beginning of the video, and it was all I could do to keep the KTM from accelerating. Hard to keep a 500 lb bike under control in those conditions.

Ended up getting through trails and back to the main road successfully, but I was exhausted and soaked with sweat. Cruising along the main road, I came upon an unexpected section of loose, deep silt. I wasn't paying enough attention, and down I went (its at the very end of the video). No real damage except for slightly bent crashbars and bruised ribs. Could have been worse.

Low Gap Road

Anyone know if they ever re-opened it? I was up there earlier this spring and it had been closed due to a landslide. Had to make it through on logging roads.

Nice... I've been wanting to take my F800GS up through some of the roads in Mendo, but I have been reluctant to explore those solo having never been there.

Somewhere between M and N, I found moto nirvana. It was a Tuesday morning on the section of Hwy 1 between the 101 and Ft. Bragg. Amazing. I think we only had to go around one car the entire drive. Good road. Good friends. No traffic (no cops...). It was the end of an awesome road trip... Everything was one with the world that morning. I hope you all have experienced the same at some point. If you haven't ridden that section, I recommend it. I have been meaning to get back up there at some point to see if it was as good as I remember it. Time will tell...

I will definitely hit up Hwy 36 if I am in the area as well...
