This ride sounds fun. Single track small bikes only or can I tag along on my 950? I am a capable rider.

I am going to do my best to goad Foot dragger into riding some some stupid stuff along the way. (it's just not right that he hasn't dropped his DR lol) But we would join back up of course. That's why I'm bringing my little bike. ;-)

Fordyce Jeep Trail Saturday 16th 9:30 Rollout

May be the last weekend for this short out and back. Weather is cooperating and flow is as low as it gets.

My first time on trail, going to take it easy so I can ride RGB's DS/ADV ride Sunday.

That's the plan, but you know how those go.

I did way more then my share of crashing this last weekend on my 200KTM,looped out on a rock climb,slid the front end out in silt,crashed into thick manzanita at the top of one climb.
Things happen.

I just try not to have to pick up DR650's. Im fine with it if Rock Garden Doug is there to pick the thing up.

Where is Hop Sing? Wasnt he percolating to come ride this sunday?

This should be a good one,most likely will snow at some point this year and that will be that.

Bob- I think I'll try and join you. I'd like to see whats in Tonys back yard. I'll be coming up from the Roseville area, is there a good spot to leave the truck at or near the market?

Mike

I know they headed out because I stopped by to say howdy to them in the parking lot. I didn't think my street tired bike was one for this outing.

You guys missed a great ride...

Bob and Tony, thank you for putting this ride together. It may have been a little overly ambitious on my part after my day at Stonyford yesterday, but I had a great time. A little of everything. I didn't get home until about an hour ago, a little chilled and certianly sore. Nothing a little hot tub therapy can't fix. Thanks again and it was good meeting everyone who participated. Sorry if I slowed anybody down but I think we all had a great time. BTW 225 miles total from my door and back. Never hit reserve on ol'Blue but have to be close.

It went great! We started out with 8 guys and finished with 6 after Bob's son Doug broke a footeg off,then Tony headed home after lunch in Laporte.

Rode a wide variety of roads and trails,some ice that didnt really look like ice but was slick as can be,weird with ice and dust at the same time.
StuinFH entertained us with wheelies each and every time he took off from a stop on his 530. I rode from Chico so did 200 miles with about 125 of it being in the dirt,or close to that anyway.
It was far enough and my body is kinda worked after dirt wrestling the DR650 around. It could use a steering damper in the rocks.

Perfect coolish November weather with bright sun,nice!
