I've never camped with a man who wasn't willing to do what bears do in the woods.

I like how at this point, we've not heard from the Grinch, but we all seem to know what he'll be doing, and on which bike!

I'm in for most anything in theory, but I'm definitely a noob on a bigger Tiger 800 and don't want to get out of my minimal skill range. Not to be a drag but just smart. if this is a small bike rough trail dirt run I dunno if this is my trip anymore...

There is plenty to do and see on the Tiger, I had one for awhile and rode it all over the area. Its your trip........

PS, do you have knobbies on yet? TKC80s did very well on my XC for black top and dirt. I suggest getting rid of the Bridgestones as soon as you can.

I'm with ya, man. Don't worry, there are tons of roads we can explore on the big bikes. I'd like to try some challenging trails, but no rock climbing for the Aprilia.

I think we're coming out Friday, but will be in kinda late. We'll be leaving Sonora after work, so maybe 8:30 or 9:00.

Shesaid and I are heading up on Friday, at least, that's the plan. Now she's talking after work on Thursday. But either way, I want to be there before noon on Friday. As we get a little closer I was going to post up some more/better maps as far as how to get there. My plan is to make it easy for people who want to arrive late Friday night.

No worries, there is definitely something for you on this ride. The overall plan is for noobs to get out and explore backroads on their dual sport/adventure bikes. It's just that the area offers so many options, that some fools, er, I mean folks, are interested in exploring some of the more rugged ones. I think we'll end up with a couple of groups, noobs doing some adventure riding, and the "veteran class" doing some dirt biking. I think it will be a good mix, and I'm even hoping to learn a little something from the "veteran class". I think we've got a couple of BMW's, an Aprilia, and maybe some KLR's, so I don't think your bike will be out of place at all.

Ok, I added a bit of info to the first post, including some links to maps of ideas for rides. Go check it out and let me know what you think. I'd also like to hear the plans from the "veteran class" riders who plan on doing the Dusy-Ershim. In the meanwhile, Happy Fourth of July!

Hesaid, is the base camp site now fixed? It still says optional in the first post.

I hadn't decided yet, but I could roll out with you. We'd still make it before dark.
