If I ain't flyin'...I'm there!

If you guy's haven't been to Troops' Throwback Thursday thing in Grass Valley at Paco's Tacos...ya gotta check it out. Even if all u have is an old dirtbike...in the back of yer truck.
Troop has created a real cool, old school 'scene' here of vintage bikes of all kinds specializing in minimalist, homemade creations of the bobber variety, but all types welcome, even some new stuff. Live music.

Here's a vid I shot of Throwback Thursday in '11

I would love to take you guys out and show you the local good roads, but I'm busy this weekend.

Do you guys want to get dirty, or just ride some good roads in the hills?

Scott, Im available for a ride next Saturday (5 Oct) if that works better for you. I would mind doing some dirt, as long as its not too technical. I just got the Explorer and havent installed the crash bars yet. Im also coming from the sport bike world, so still getting used to the handling and weight of the bike.

If we stay on pavement, I will invite a couple of my buddies along as well.

Justin

I could fit in a a shorter ride in the middle of the day on Sept 28. (Oct 5 is even worse for me.)

There's a one-hour loop out Scott Road to Latrobe/Shingle Roads that has a few miles of dirt, but your friends could go out around to Jackson Road and meet us where we come back out on Latrobe and S Shingle.

There's another ride off of Foresthill that has a lot more dirt that can be done in three to four hours. It's all relatively easy stuff that you can drive a car on if you don't mind it getting dirty. It's also much more scenic. Although it could be ridden by a determined rider on a sport bike, I wouldn't recommend it.

Let me know if either of these sound interesting.

We'll eventually get connected. Just not in the next week or two.

That's 115 miles from Sacramento.

Might as well be looking in a Bay Area or Chico thread.

Sac area too...

I'm up in Cameron Park, highway 50 corridor. Done the Latrobe loop. It's easy and a good one for those just breaking in to off road. I'd be interested in the Forest Hill ride. Sounds great. EventHorizon34... what's the route?

Me and my 2012 KLR

Hey thanks for the replies Saturday sounds good I don't work until 930pm so that sounds pretty fun I've been meaning to check out forest hill a bit. I am still getting the hang of the bike as far as technical trails go but I have confidence to get through it.
