Nowhere Bob came by the next morning on his big bike, hadn't seen him in a couple of years.






Time to head for home, they had Hwy 120 closed, but had scraped a lane back down to pavement...the mud was ten feet deep. Nicky and Renaud decided to just go back out to Hwy 6, I just went ahead and followed a Caltrans dump truck...no big deal.




I'm pretty sure that right about there is where Clint Eastwood painted the town red, landmarks look about right.




Played around a bit, new lower gearing plus new springs front/rear.




Back over Hwy 4...






No GPS these days, back roads from 4...came out on 49 right about 13 corners, damn good ride.




Then home...

Tough conditions--again. Last year we had that lightning bolt come down on our camp, remember?

Truck Ramp?

To the ADV universe (or at least the East Bay) - Off to a Mammoth DS ride this Thursday - Sunday and was wondering if anyone has a loading ramp I might borrow? Nathan has the truck but no ramp. I'd be willing to let you borrow my 3 rail trailer for the weekend as trade.

I can pickup somewhere in the East Bay....

PM me if you can help.

It's a dirt bike, JUMP that thing off there. :)

I'm basically in Tracy and have a full monty ramp if you run out of options, but honestly, you ought to be able to find a way to get that thing off such a low trailer pretty easy.

Someone is forgetting what a bitch it was to get his bike on a lower trailer even with the ramp...

Oh and the ramp is for my buddies Truck. We're not using the trailer this trip and although the XR can get "out" of his truck bed - getting two bikes back onto his Frontier is a challenge unless you are on a steep ledge.

BRP's aint' light when fully loaded.

AL responded via PM so I think I am OK!!

Including a shredded alternator belt.

Moving to South Bay Area from TX.

Hey guys, I'm moving out next month and I have an xr650r that I recently got plated. We are looking for places to rent around the San Jose area and hopefully will have the good luck of finding a place with a garage or storage space for the bike.
Just throwing a feeler out there to possibly rent some garage/shop space for storing and doing maintenance on the bike. That is if we have limited space at our rental.

I've looked through some of your ride reports of the surrounding area and it looks like some nice riding!
