New to this thread..

Hey guys. Im in Santa Cruz and ride a porky but sporty GS 1200 and would like to ride with like minded characters. Ive ridden fire roads on the GS but have logged 100k+ miles trail, commuting and highway rides and still not an expert. Except at enjoying myself.

Im usually flexible and can juggle things with work and wife. Ideal day rides would be 100 miles with a good walk at a point of interest or a 300 sporty ride on less traveled two lane roads. Good eating a plus and tank bag is always full of munchies. Looking for a week long tour this summer too.

Im going out on a limb guys. This took some guts. Don't leave me hangin..

BTW is the trail to Murphy's ok for the GS. Im running 80/20 tires?

I'm always game and ride the same type of pig. I'm out of Livermore but know a good chunk of roads/places to hit.

Send me a note when you want to rock. However, I'm dead for a couple weeks for anything far from home as we are still in the process of moving...

It is fun, easy riding ... Cary says it's like a "roller coaster" ...

Would not like to be out there in the mud on a big bike ...

Hi chorizo and spaceman_spiff,

Spring is the time to head off to Mercey Hot Springs ... think we have plans to be there again on April 5-6th ...

We're planning on being at Hollister Hills OHV Park this weekend ...

I almost always post up here beforehand about where I'm planning on riding any given weekend ... got to meet longtallsally and Diter that way in Death Valley recently ... guess it works one time out of ten ...

Other upcoming rides are the Mendo Rally and the Oakland Motorcycle Club's Sheetiron Dual-Sport ride (May 17-18th, 2014) ...

BAARC Forever, The more the merrier and
see you around the campfire!
-- SFMCjohn

Ride a Tiger 800 XC... always up in the santa cruz hills for the few dirt roads around there. Going out on a ride through that area if you or anyone else is interested! I will be on the Tiger and a friend on a gs1200.
