Can someone provide or point to a set of GPS tracks with the legal dirt roads for Clear Creek?

Send me a pm with your email address and I'll send my tracks to you. Don't know any other way of doing it.

Great pics, thanks for taking the time to share them. I hope that you don't mind that I've saved a couple to my own gallery.

Also, good assumption

Thanks for posting up your pics Leo,

so I had more than one navigation failure - I took you to an unnamed mudhole for lunch instead of glorious Spanish Lake, the one with the nude beach. Luckily nobody was interested in sunning themselves!

I saw at least two with barley pops, albeit only one each. Here's a funny thing: the DMV sends out this little mailer with your license that has a chart showing # drinks before your likely drunk by body weight. At 200lbs it shows almost a six pack for me... no way I'm testing out their ratio.

PS - San Benito Co roads are Clear Creek (R001), Mexican Lake (R011), Sawmill (T158), and I think... KCAC (R015, the paved bit at the bottom of Sawmill). The bit that got us from Mexican Lake down to KCAC after lunch was (we assumed) opened by the BLM as part of their new vehicle route, according to their maps. It might be also labeled R015, but opened according to their new document.

If they ever get this crap sorted there should be some other roads and trails opened south of KCAC Rd.

You can upload them to this site in the GPS forums.

http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...2#post23724262

I use this:
http://www.garmin.com/en-US/shop/downloads/basecamp

and this:
http://www.gpsfiledepot.com/maps/view/523/

to view GPX files if you don't have any Garmin base or Topo maps, or you can use Google Earth

Laugh MotoGP parties this season ...

Hi BAARCers,

We're planning on showing the Eurosport MotoGP coverage on
Sunday every MotoGP weekend this season starting at 4pm with Moto3 ...

This Sunday, 3/23, is the season opener at Qatar ...



We're at 18th Street and Folsom ...

Everyone is welcome!

Our social club has a well-stocked fountain, featuring everything
a motorcyclist may wish to quaff ... there is often some sort of pot-luck ...

The MotoGP events are hosted by the club's Race Committee,
and the few bucks we make at the fountain are used to finance our
annual "kids race free" day with a local flat-track club ... last season--with the
help of folks who came by to watch MotoGP--we paid the
entry fees for 37 racers under 12 years old ...

hope to see BAARCers this Sunday,
or sometime this season,
BAARC Forever!
-- SFMCjohn

PS: Just a quick word to folks who may be put off by "motorcycle clubs":

The SFMC is one of the oldest motorcycle clubs in the world, and we are
celebrating our 110th Anniversary this year ...
In 1904 three of our founding members owned three different motorcycle
dealerships (Indian, Thor and Henderson), a tradition of multi-brand
riders we've always maintained. We are a proud mom-n-pop
AMA sweater club ... we have one family who have been members
for four generations and many two-generation families.

The club is an artifact from before the Internet ... an analogue ADVrider.com
or Bay Area Adventure Riders Club ...
Our attitude is if you live in San Francisco and ride a motorcycle, this is your club!

Clear Creek

Just an FYI............

Rode Clear Creek again today. It was my son's first dual sport ride. He now has his M1 permit. He did awesome. The BLM had a stop sign with two Rangers set up. They had us fill out paperwork and charged us 5 bucks each. The lady Ranger said there were two more trucks and some quads roaming around doing enforcement. At the turn off for Four Corners we were stopped again and a Quad Ranger checked our paperwork. There was another Ranger in a Dodge pickup ticketing a few guys on dirt bikes/quads.

The lady ranger said next time we need to go online or to the Hollister Office to get our paperwork at least two days before we ride.

Are they checking bikes? I have a plate but the signals and brake light don't work yet. I am planning a trip down there next week or 2 and am wondering

And now the BLM has your name and home address on file.

For riding a legal, non BLM county road.

That is so wrong.
