Thanks for all. I came from Spring, TX, just north of Houston, a lot of flat land and sand, am now in Modesto. Now I need to get the bikes licensed here, a trout license for me, and get a little more prepared for a breakdown up there. Can't wait.

I have BMW road bikes, but the dualsport is an older (the purple years) DR650SE. It's spent most of its cushy life on Texas backroads, but seemed to enjoy its time in the hills as much as I did.

I was born and spent most of my life in Modesto. Retired in Columbia. Most of my riding is between Hwy 4 and 108. You picked a good riding area with 1,400 miles of dirt roads in the Stanislaus forest alone.

Got a question about area, just ask, I have been on most of them. Available to ride, but I am old and slow.

The new Stanislaus forest map has deleted a lot of roads that are up here. Confusing when you run across a road not on the map. Garmin software has a few/lot of roads marked incorrectly. But you will soon get the hang of it.

At little late to the party....

Could be mistaken but I think Gail from Cycle Specialties (Modesto) is leading a dual sport ride this Sunday up near Cherry Lake. I am planning to go if I have the right weekend. Giving Gail a call today to see if its on.
Anyone on here planning to go.

Mr.B, good luck with the surgery. Didn't sound like a difficult ride so if you feel well enough maybe see you there.

Heal up quick and when your ready I would really like to ride some of the areas that you have shown on ADV rider. I get a lot of street riding in but not enough off road.

No problem should not be too long , I have been in KC Missouri for the last ten months and my riding skills, while never great, have diminished a bit, need some good practice!

Does anyone know where you can camp at Deer Creek? I want to pull my travel trailer up and spend a night of two with the boys. They have green sticker bikes, so I want to camp where they can legally ride right from the trailer. If someone has the GPS coordinates or a way point, that would be great!

There is unimproved camping at Crandall Peak. Same area above Deer Creek. Use Frazier flat turn off. About 7 miles of gravel road to 4N88 off 4N01 (extension of Frazier Flat rd.) http://www.riderplanet-usa.com/atv/t.../ride_1dc5.htm

The Hull Creek campground services Deer Creek if I am not mistaken.

There is OHV access at Italian Bar rd on Deer Creek. I see a lot of day use there. It is flat enough for a trailer, as it is the site of the old ranch house. It is Green sticker east of Italian Bar rd. The access is pretty rocky and Italian Bar rd itself is county, so DMV rules apply.

Do not know if camping is prohibited. Check FS at Miwuk, they have all the maps and the rules.
