So who is in for Saturday? Let's get a list so we don't leave anyone behind. I'll be at Skyway and Coutolenc at 7:00am. I plan on heading for the lakes, and it sounds like a couple of other people still want to give it a shot.

I rode my 01 KLR650 (no longer have) 400 miles from San Diego to Mammoth.
That was painful.

High Lakes 7-24-10

Fun ride today. This was the most difficult terrain I have tried on my DR, but it was fun to get through stuff I couldn't have done on a street bike. http://img815.imageshack.us/slidesho...id=pic0076.jpg

Check it out and lets make a plan. There are routes for the bigger adventure type bikes that can be ridden and not get as thrashed or in to deep.
I have helped Bob,the ironmandualsport guy, pre ride and lay out some of his rides,the Circumnavigator is a good one for sure.
Just for variety there is some great riding on the west side of the valley,over towards Elk Creek and up road 313 or Hull road,one and the same,many designated jeep trails and the main fireroad is a flattrackers dream. Its about 50 miles across the valley to get to the start of the dirt riding. Trucking bikes over isnt out of the question for more serious dirt dual sports,there is generally gas at Elk Creek. I used to trailride over there alot but not sure of where the trails are nowadays.
I would be up for a ride over that way sometime.

Some buddys and I are off to the flattrack races in Calistoga next weekend.
Should be good! Im riding the DR with the street wheels on it.

Like the avatar says, I'm from Oroville. I have a KTM 950 S and I would like to go exploring some new stuff. I have done the Poker Flat ride from La Porte to Downieville and the Henness Pass ride from Camptonville to Verdi NV. Those are a couple of good rides.

Foot Dragger knows the area real well.
Somebody should put together a ride.
I'll go.

Hey Doug,hows that 950 working out? Has it been off road much yet? Ive only been dirt riding in this area since 1972 or so,Ive got a general idea which way most dirt roads go.
Sometimes I head up Centerville road till it turns to dirt,pop out on the skyway and down to Coutolink road then take that to Jordan hill road,then take a left on V-line and head to Rag dump,from there I can navigate on dirt over to Pulga and up to Granite Basin on the far side of hi-way 70,from there to Bucks lake for lunch. Lots of good loops to ride around here.

I haven't been riding the KTM much lately. I did get up to the Gold Lake area a few weeks ago. I have been spending all of my time on my bicycle getting ready for a 24 hour race this coming weekend. After that is over I will be ready to do some riding.
