Yosemite Dual-Sport Ride

The Yosemite Dual Sport Adventure is an AMA Sanctioned dual sport event held at the gateway to Yosemite National Park, Buck Meadows California and is open to any make or model of street legal motorcycle.
If you are a part of Team Orange then this is a "must attend" event designed especially for you. If you don't ride a KTM then that's fine too! KTM is the major sponsor of this event but it's really about getting into the back-country and enjoying the trails, right?
This two day, GPS based, self-guided adventure includes scenic & historic destinations in and around Yosemite National Park and the Stanislaus National Forest. Using paved and unpaved roads with options of "hard" & "easy" splits, you’ll have approximately 100 miles of fun each day! "Easy" routes are perfect for beginning riders or large adventure bikes while experienced riders will have the opportunity to be challenged by choosing "hard" splits. All routes are approximately 85% dirt and "hard" splits are longer (more dirt!).
Event is operated under permit from the Stanislaus National Forest and limited to 100 riders so register early! This event caters to ALL street legal dual sport motorcycles.

FREE GPS Training:

"GPS and the Adventure Motorcyclist" author Lawrence Borgens will be giving a FREE class on how to navigate with GPS while riding in the back-country. With or without trails, roads, land-marks or a paper map you'll be able to confidently navigate anywhere on the planet once you know the ropes. Bring your GPS preloaded with our routes, something to take notes on and an open mind. This class will be at 6:45pm at the registration tent so get there early!
GPS Routing:

Bring your GPS!!! This is the 21st Century and “Roll Charts” are a thing of the past… A download of suggested routes and destination will be emailed to you upon completion of your registration. Suggested routes will consist of limited pavement, gravel and dirt roads & some single-track. Each day will consist of approximately 100 miles, visiting different destinations each day. Routes are approximately 80% dirt. If registering at the event, bring your GPS download cable.
Vendor Booths & Exhibits:

There will be vendor booths and displays set up by our sponsors and other local motorcycle dealerships.
Scenic Rides:

THIS IS NOT A RACE!!! This is a fun, EZ-to-follow, on/off-road, leisurely, scenic and historic trip through parts of the beautiful Stanislaus National Forest and Yosemite National Park. In most cases easy routes are passable with a 4WD vehicle. In case routes or destinations are closed alternate destinations and routes will be selected.
Motorcycle Requirements:

All motorcycles must meet the following requirements. Failure to meet ALL requirements will result in your money being refunded and you being asked to leave the event.
  • Quiet muffler with a spark arrester is mandatory and only helps our sport. Nothing above 94db!
  • Must be street legal with all required lighting, licensing, registration and insurance.
  • You will need to be able to go at least 75 miles on a tank of gas.
Other Information:
  • Destinations and routes are only our recommendations. The Yosemite area has SO MUCH to offer that we hesitate to limit your experience. All suggested destination and routes have been examined by our staff and deemed appropriate for this event.
  • GPS downloads are an accurate representation of the route and include additional waypoints at various locations of historical and scenic interest.
  • A map showing suggested destinations, routes, points of scenic beauty and historical interest and bailouts is handed out during registration. Map is for reference purposes only and should not be relied upon for navigation.
  • Bring rain gear in case of bad weather. This is a rain or shine event.
  • Bring a camera! This is a beautiful area!

That is not cool to ask this question, especially on the promoters own thread. You pay to enter the ride and then receive the GPS tracks. :(

The promoter spends a ton of time riding the trails year after year in the area, choosing the right trails and planned gas stops and lunch stops for a fun event. Then you have the guts to come on his thread and ask for his tracks for free? He gets reimbursed for his gas/time/replacement parts for his bikes from the money from the ride.

Amazing!

I was there also on Sunday working on the PCQ. In morning, rode loop south of 120 from Buck and back to Yosemite Lake. Then from the Lake north and back to Buck. Only saw one man and kid on way back.
