Hi bikyto and longtallsally,

Thanks for the kind words! I usually try to give a heads-up here whenever I'm off for a ride ... Would love to see you both around the campfire some time soon ...

This thread has sort of lost its way since Todd drifted off ... I like to post here because I think one of the best uses for BAARC is as a place to share some of the best riding close to home ... I grew up back East, so I'm sort of playing catch up here in beautiful California ...

I pretty much do what you seem to do, longtallsally, find a ride on ADV and go along ... enjoyed your posts on DVDays and the WMRS ride last weekend ... Gotta find Funnel Lake!

Here is a link to a post about Mt Patterson ... My pal Ryan has ridden up it a couple of times on a loaded KLR ... Some great pics and a map ...

Anyway, I'd love to see some BAARCers on a ride ... I'm trying to get to Buck Island in Sept or October ... Reiff/Rayhouse Roads ... would be quick and easy ... or a Mt Patterson assault! Maybe next summer ...?

OK, blah, blah ...

see you around the campfire,
-- SFMCjohn

Thanks for taking us along, John!

Hi guys. Former Bay Area resident here. I'm flying out September 13th to pick up my KTM 950 Super Enduro and ride it back to Minnesota via Seattle. Gonna be visiting friends in Sonoma for a few days before heading north on the PCH circa 17 September. Does anyone know if there are any bike rallies/rides in Oregon, Wasington or NorCal around that time? Thanks


Edit: Looks like im 2 weeks too early for Rio Nido!

You should really look into doing the ORBDR and WABDR if you are going that way with that bike...
