Well looks like my wife planned my weekend for me. If the weather is still good next weekend it would be nice to get a small group together. Any ideas?

Free park days going on right now 9-11th, I might be going for a ride somewhere on Mon?

On another note, I bought a front tire on the recommendation of a forum member, a Surge I Chen Shin 80/100-21 , It's not a bad tire...It just turns out that I prefer a Scorpion Pro, I was just going to run it until It needed to be replaced and buy another Scorpion Pro but that would mean I would be running it for the next 2-3 years and decided I didn't want to do that so I figured I would waste some money and buy another Scorpion Pro and swap it out.
In a effort to try to recoup from my mistake I'm selling the Surge I for $20?? I went for 3 rides on it, It is DOT.
I'm putting it on this thread because I'm not shipping it anywhere, was hoping to just do local pickup/drop off.






When it was new, next to the old Scorp Pro:

The loop I did the other day starting at the Lakeside Market in Oroville to LaPorte for lunch and gas and then back by way of Milsap Bar turned out very good. If guys are interested I could lead the way on that.

Sunday if that works for you, it would be great to have you along Tony! Since it's your backyard I'm sure you could make it a better ride!

So going to do this ride again, this coming Sunday, Nov.17th. Same time, same place.

It was probably me, I was on my way to meet up at the Lakeside Market. We did a 157 mile loop, found some great riding. Quite a few single track trails that I'll explore another time on another bike. But only one locked locked gate that forced us off my planned route and that worked out well since we found some great 2 track that it looks like only the locals on quads use. So the mileage was 74 miles from the Lakeside Market to La Porte. the first section was pavement to Clipper Mills about 20 miles then all dirt to La Porte. After filling up with gas and lunch at Reilly's. We start out on dirt in town and don't hit pavement again until Bald Rock Rd. I guess from there it's probably about another 20 miles Back to the Lakeside Market. Great Ride! Sorry no pictures.

Going to go exploring on Sunday, looking for a mostly dirt route from Oroville to New Bullards Bar Res. to La Porte. I already have a good dirt route back but may try to improve that also. Anybody interested in riding along is welcome, I will be looking for a route with a few challenges and trying to keep a pretty good pace. Meet at the Lakeside Market 5250 Olive Hwy. (162) Oroville at 8:30 am, Sunday morning, Don't forget to set your clocks back Saturday night. Weather should be great although a little cool in the morning

Your riding the KLR at Stonyford?

Holy F how do you slow it down on the downhills?

You need to snap up my 530 for safety reasons if nothing else.
