Are you talking about the 6th or 7th. The weekend after that is classified.
I know you spoke of taking your trials bike up, never did?

I'd be rolling from way over by Auburn but I usually get up early.

What ETD are you all thinking?
Didn't you and I meet last year on one of Ironmans rides? I'm getting older and my memory fails meet at times.

it seemed to me you were taking issue with my response by quoting and discounting it. Giving out inaccurate trail information could possibley get someone in trouble such as all trails come back to the main trail I was simply showing that this is not so. Apologies for any offence takin

The High Lakes are a great place to visit,some of the "roads" are comprised of boulders,rocks,lava cap, and other sundry rolling rocks of all sorts. I would vastly prefer my 525 over my DR650,some of it was a challenge on a KTM 200 on the hard routes. The higher up lesser known lakes have some REALLY interesting jeep trails leading to them.

But I believe there are good maps to be had of just that area.

FOTHL stands for friends of the high lakes and googling them may bring up info about the area.

I provided information based on my experience and what knowledge I have of the area. Friends of the High Lakes is a good source of info on the area, also youtube has a lot of videos posted to it, mapquest and google maps can provide mapping info, your local forest service office will have Plumas and Lassen National Forest maps available. All easily obtainable info. Ride on

9:00am Next Saturday morning, meet at Fastrip gas station in Magalia on Skyway (it's on the way and about a 1/2 mile from my place) this is about a 5-6 hr ride factoring in stops/breaks along the way so don't be late. The fast trip is a convienence store so snacks etc. can be obtained there. 100 mile gas range min is required. I'll be looking forward to meeting any and all who come. If you're new to off road riding, this probably isn't the ride for you, sorry. Doable on anything from a KLR down, I wouldn't recommend anything larger.
I think that this may be an understatement. Not many riders would be comfortable taking a KLR where ReDog1 goes on his.

I am totally lost in a house rebuild and making tons of progress. I have several people helping me and riding is going to have to wait. I will be anxious to hear about this. If I don't have any commitments that morning I may head out that way and see who is crazy enough to follow Stu and that KLR up the hill

How far from the market to the OHV staging area, or do you go up that way.

Oh I don't know about that Hop-Sing

Here's Last October's mayhem


After taking a wrong turn. Maybe I shouldn't be leading a ride.


That KLR has since been sold and replaced by the 530.

The second picture is priceless. And can I remind people of your efforts in Mendocino last year, KLR Award winner. Or maybe doubling back to hit Military pass Rd after a group of dirt bikes skipped it the day before.

Be safe on that 530, we don't bounce well anymore.

Hop-Ssssinge,you should take a mental health day and come ride the High Lakes,we all have only so many cubits of time left on this orbiting blue ball.
My 525 isnt on the road at the moment but Im working on it.

The DR could work but seems heavy.

bike's

I think the BMW is bigger than a KLR. I don't have a suitable bike for this ride. My wheel chair has a slow leak in the drive tire and I am waiting on parts. And my buddy is using the Tote Goat on a deer hunting trip. The Radio Flyer is my best bet if someone has a strong rope.

Knocked down ceiling and sheet rock all day, some fresh air would be nice.
Fiberglass and asbestos for lunch.

I am wondering if I could fit a couple gallons in a backpack. I see granite and want some. I am confident I could keep up if it gets nasty, any smooth places I would be slow. The 4rt would be happy with me.

Speed is Not of the essence on high lake roads,a trials bike would be fine,Reddog would have a good place lined up to truck the T bike to. I rode it last time on my 200 from above Concow to Lake Almanor and that worked fine. We did 175 miles total over 2 days with a nice tri-tip dinner at a cabin at Lake Almanor.

Between various bikes carrying gas would be easy.

(Ive knocked down every bit of lath and plaster in an old house before,ultimate misery)
