Check with Gold Country Dual Sport Riders (assuming your internet skills are good enough to find it). There are regular rides near Sacramento.

If you had posted a day sooner, I would have invited you on my ride yesterday.

I'm planning to ride again Tuesday or Wednesday. I was thinking something a bit more mellow, like exploring the offshoots of the Robinson Flat / Soda Springs road. Forest Service road stuff (I'm still kinda beat up from my last day of single track). I'll probably ride my WR. Weather expected up into the 80s at Foresthill so plan for some heat. Anybody who is interested shoot me a line.

Anybody have some suggestions on good places to check out around Robinson Flat, French meadows, Soda Springs rd. area? I've been down mrr to the reservoir and out 11 Pines a few times on the CBR, but I want to start exploring off the pavement now that I have the XL. I've been thinking about heading out to the reservoir and just tooling around looking for new (to me) areas, and possibly heading up Soda Springs Rd. to Serene Lakes.

Well , any day on 2 wheels is a good day(you know that feeling) . cruze speed is 65 - 70 so I stay off the freeway when ever I can . Like back country roads but will chose gravel every time . Love twisty pavement but but tend to forget my age ! A dirt road or 2 track makes my heart skip a beat !!!!!! And love an easy single track but gave up trying to keep up with the young guys long ago . What little testosterone I have left I leave at home , I want to do this for a long time to come . Give me a call 707-592-9956

Ride tomorrow

The tentative plan is to start at the Foresthill gas station ( I think it's a "Beacon" station ) next to Mosquito Ridge Road. We are going to meet at 09:30. The current plan is dirt road stuff, nothing too intense somewhere up in the Robinson Flat / French Meadows area.

Hey everyone.

Any word on Throwback Thursdays at Paco's Tacos in Grass Valley? The Facebook page hasn't been updated in awhile. I haven't been out since last year and don't want to miss the next one.
