Hmm, sounds good, might have to take the day off.

So, if bringing the bike in the truck, unload at Weimer after bfast?

Cheers

Thanks!

Right in my backyard and real similar to what Hobbes950 and I will be doing tomorrow. We're meeting at Colfax Starbucks at 9:30 on big bikes and anybody with off road experience and a tube ( plug, patch .. or something) is welcome. There were still small chunks of snow roadside in Iowa Hill on Monday so I doubt we will make it out Elliott Ranch Rd (or Finning Mill) but will know more tomorrow.

Do you plan on rolling out at 9:30 or hanging out in Colfax for a few minutes?

Does my tube have to fit your bike?

Meeting at 9:30. Let us know if you can make it close to that. Maybe I will gas up in Colfax instead of Nevada City.

My night didn't go as planned, we had 3 calls and a grand total of an hour sleep. I'm going home for a nap.

This is what we found up by Elliot Ranch. This is a road north of Elliot Ranch and it was the same just before where Giant Gap meets Elliot Ranch.



Otherwise was a good day. Yankee Jims, Kings Hill, Finning Mill, Michigan Bluff, Ponderosa. A bit dusty, but not too bad. Wish I didn't have to work Tuesday.

If you want palms, you should reevaluate wanting to move to Sacramento! It does get hot as balls in the summer. And it also gets pretty darn cold in the winter. It's halfway in between San Francisco and Lake Tahoe and has almost none of the good parts of either. The best thing about Sac (to me, anyway) is that it's 2 hours to SF or Tahoe.

I don't know central CA all that well, but from what you said, I would say you should aim a bit further south and a lot closer to the coast.

Good luck!
