Citrus Heights.
Try to get a couple rides to the mountains each month in spring/summer/fall.
Don't have a "big" bike, or a "new" bike. But I have 4 that are plated and 2 that aint. Sometimes ride with GCDSR's,
Try to hit the BSAONC motherlode ride each year.
Former events chaiman of the trailbike sportsman's association.
Ride whenever possable...as opposed to the truck.
No longer take too big of a risk, but still doing it...
My own group of riders is the
Seventh Day Adventurists ...in action doing rides since the 80's.
trail rides, street rides, and dualsport.
Look forward to catching up to some of you characters on a ride some time.

If anyone else is running a B50's or XS650's in town speak up.

Prefer weekdays!

I'm a retired old goat and can pretty much pick my time and place. I've also discovered that if it ain't easy...I don't want to do it. But other than that I still like to get out there and see what happens. I'll watch for opportunities and just might join you. I'm pretty familiar with Colusa, Lake, Yolo & Mendocino.

Hi to jstory.

C-ya, Jer

I'm in Natomas. After a 20+ year hiatus from riding I'm looking to get back on the horse. I'm hoping to pick-up a Kawasaki KLX250s in the near future. Would definitely like to do some local trail riding when I do.

I'm in Auburn and ride a couple days a week year round. I mainly ride American river canyons, Foresthill, mosquito ridge area, to the Truckee area. Now that my favorite higher elevation rides are less accessible I'm looking for more lower elevation stuff. My schedule is all over the place but I prefer weekdays and any avoidance of larger crowds. If anyone wants to come up and ride in this area shoot me a PM.
Great thread idea, hopefully this will become a link for area rides / riders.

I ride pretty much all the same areas. I have a 2-4 guys I go with. 2 of us for sure are doing part of the TAT this year. I can't ride on week days :(

Ride next week

OK. I'll shoot one out there.
I was planning on riding either Sunday, Monday or Tuesday next week (29th, 30th or 31st). I was thinking Yankee Jim's to Mosquito Ridge to Gorman Ranch to Chickenhawk to Ponderosa. It's easy dirt / gravel roads with some twisty pavement. It can be done in a couple hours easy. Any takers let me know or post up here.

10 miles North of Auburn.

I work waaaay too much, and would only be able to get out on Saturdays and Sundays.

Hey Parx! Long time no talk. What's it been, 45 minutes? lol

I hail from Roseville and my stable consists of a 2006GSXR600 race bike, a 2003 Adventurestrom 1000 and a plated XR650R.
