Hey Jason
Enjoyed the ride despite we rode mostly paved back country roads. Still trying to figure out Why all those forest service roads are so well paved!! No wonder the state is broke, wish they would pave the roads in Merced County half that nice.

Should know if mid October Mid Week overnight will work! I am up for ore destinations too, Bodie is just what came to mind, the Tahoe area might be good.

Talk later
Thanks again
Bruce

Dave moved his shop next door down from the old DH Cycle. The new place is called "Dave's Adventure Cycle". I'm not sure how much wrenching he does these days, probably need to call to find out. The place is a great spot to get tires, oil and moto supplies. This is my goto spot for tire changing in the Modesto area.

I think we were just too close to the ski lodge?

Yeah, let me know about October? Have you ever been to Lake Almanor up by Chester? I went there with the wife a few years ago, lots of dirt roads. You'd probably need three days though, it would take 5-6 hours to get there? One day to ride up, one to explore the area, and the last one to come back home.

It has been waaay to long since I have riden near bass lake... Just the roads are nice, don't hate me too much but getting my hands on a harley amd circling the lake with the mrs sounds like a good time.

Yall have fun - saving up my brownie points for a trip to play in the sand this month.

Bruce, PM sent. I'm waiting to hear from a couple of other riders from Fresno and Clovis. We usually try to get into the hills earlier if possible so let me know. As it stands lets met at the Valero Gas station on Hwy 41 about 1 mile north of Hwy 49.

Incase anyone was wondering. It was such a great riding day up the woods above Bass Lake today. I managed to show Bruce a little bit of everything my newbie skill level could handle. Will do this again.
