DS Noob Looking to Tag Along

Hey Folks,

I'm looking for someone to go on day rides with who wouldn't mind a relative dual sport noob with a smaller bike tagging along. I'm in San Jose and just picked up an ‘08 Honda CRF230L and got her all ready to ride, and I would like to check out the local OHV trails (Hollister and Metcalf) but also any dual sport roads/trails that are do-able in a day from the Bay Area. I have a hitch carrier on my SUV and can drive to location, and I’ve got an auxiliary gas tank for the back rack so my range is decent. I obviously can't keep up with the big boys and girls on the pavement for too long, but I should be able to keep up with bigger bikes on the trails. I have street bike experience, and I rode dirt bikes a lot during my youth, now I’m looking to get into dual sporting in the area. I'm mid-40s, low key, easy to be around, and willing to learn the ropes and the landscape.



Cheers, Matt

All right. If that's the way it has to be, I suppose we'll all just have to ride around in the Sierras twice! Just let us get through this trip, and then we'll start on another plan...

Ok, then we did talk to you. We were the locals on dual sports. If you're up for dirt on the F800GS, next time we can take you a different way between Shaver and Hume. More dirt, more snakes, occasionally more paranormal activity...
