New Southern Oregon rider. Anyone here?
 
Checking in. Just moved to Medford from Central Texas, also spent some years in Tucson and Phoenix. Originally from Boise Idaho. It feels good to be back in the north.

Looking forward to getting out and exploring the area. I am a bit overwhelmed at the possibilities.

Is there an area where people post rides to get groups together? I haven't stumbled upon one yet.

Anyhoo...look forward to running into fellow adventure rides out there.

I drove up to the johns peak area the other day when I was in jacksonville for something else. Looks great! Now just got to wait for the rain to stop for a bit to go explore on the moto. Don't feel like tearing it up in the mud just yet.

Dude!..if you live that close,,you went up there and saw it??,,:eek1 you are missing the concept!:deal
John's Peak is year round,,you just need some better tires,,or a small bike with big knobs,,for the mud and (rarely) snow!,,Go for it!
Wibby!,,say something!:clap

I live in Eagle Point and my riding buddy lives in Central Point. Next time we're going out for a beer or going for a ride I'll send you a PM. We both ride DR650s. His is mostly stock, mine is mostly not. Johns Peak is a nice area, but there are plenty of others. When the weather starts cooperating, you're going to find plenty of places to ride. There is from mild to wild around here.

I find a lot of the places I go to by going and seeing something along the way.

You can ride John's Peak the day after a heavy rain and it is fine. It's so damn rocky up there

If you like riding trails there's a local group on facebook called "Anything Dirtbike"
They ride pretty much every weekend

I haven't ridden either bike in months :cry

Yeah, please do!

Would like to see more of the area. The limited exploring I have done I have found a few gates and private property signs on roads that appear to be go through on the map. Felt like I was back in Texas.

I probably just need better maps than google.

And I do appreciated a good beer. another perk for the region.

My 640 is stock, been pretty happy with it over the last few years.

Did make it up to Johns peak area for a couple hours yesterday. Stuck to the main roads mostly but explored around a bit to get an idea of the area. Seems like lots of trails to explore up there. Looking forward to getting out again.
