I am kind of a lurker on this site, but love some of these reports.
Now, Dave, these are really great photos! I know exactly how hard it is to stop and do it. I am very impressed. I have rode many of those areas (pavement only) many times.
Dave, I live in Tracy as well. Been here since 1994. I ride an FJR, and have rode 50k or so in past 36 months. Have had the bug since kids have left for college.
Anyway, I am only on page 5 as I just seen this for 1st time. Wanted to let you know you have another fan of you work.
Thanks for sharing these awesome photos!
