I haven't forgotten about this thread I just can't commit to a specific date because I've become very busy. If anybody wants to organise a ride feel free. Big Sur is looking mighty inviting...

Panoche Hills - Carrizo Plain, 3/26, etc ... short notice ...

Hi All,

I've been enjoying this thread for a while, and finally have somthing to contribute ... so, sort of an introduction here ...

My friend Kalle and I decided over coffee this morning to head toward the Panoche Hills tomorrow and then on to the Carrizo Plain ...

We will be camping around Mercy Hot Springs Friday, 3/26, and will then try to head south on Saturday and/or Sunday ...

We'll be on KLRs loaded for camping ... below is a photo of the mis-matched bodywork and ADV sticker of one of the bikes to be on the look-out for, and the other one will look a bit like ... well, like a green KLR loaded for camping ... You may see somthing that says San Francisco Motorcycle Club on it as well [stickers/clothing] ...

Anyway, keep an eye out for us if you're planning to be down south this weekend, we'd love to meet up and say 'hi' ... our bikes may be in front of the Panoch Inn on Friday, then Selby campground or The Place on Saturda/Sunday, and then either over to Pozo or towards Death Valley depending on the weather or what we feel like doing, before heading back to San Francisco on Tuesday or Wednesday ...

I'll try to post some pics when we get back ...

I'll also try to make some of the upcoming rides or meet-and-greets posted here in the future, I just have not matched up schedule-wise yet ... [will be at the Sheetiron, though, trying to turn it into a 600 by camping both nights in Stonyford].

Here are the pics:




Elkhorn Road, Carrizo Plain, December 28, 2009, on the way back from a trip to Baja over Christmas ...




Cary, AFM Novice and VTR250 racer, #968, at Elkhorn and Soda Lake Road, 12/09 ... the KLR with the white tank will be the bike down there this weekend, it has a big ADV sticker on the front ... Cary can't join us this time, but that's her green KLR ... we'll be at a track day at Infinion on Easter Sunday, missing the Mt. Tam ride ...

Anyway, wave if you see us in the upcoming days ... suggestions or intel always welcome!

I'm going to be spending the weekend riding around near the Panamint Valley Resort. Sounds like the timing is off, but if you see a 950 Super Enduro and a 950 ADV-S (the blue one) make sure to slaute! Hope your trip is good and I'd be stoked to ride with you sometime.

Cheers!

There are 3 of us headed to Mendocino National Forest in the morning on big dual sports.
North via Sam Alley Ridge, french ridge, Long ridge and M10.
Campsite will most likley be Dixie Glade campground.

Then wander south on Sunday via some awsome single track.

If anybody is in the area, come on over and share a beer or meet us in Hopland in the morning for Breakfast at 10.00am.
We leave SF at 8am.

Anyone interested in doing some bike camping April 9-10? I'm thinking primitive or KOA camping, I don't care, I just want to relax and enjoy an evening around a bonfire! I was thinking about heading up US 1 towards Fort Bragg or the Russian river area, but I could be convinced to go elsewhere!

Wheat-smacker, you down? Are you going to post some pictures from your weekend ride?

I was planning that SAME trip two weekends ago - and decided to get my new footpegs on and do some work. Then I got a pregnant cat last wednesday AND a cold - so that blew this past weekend.

I may yet get up my stuff and go - plan to stay at Mercey on a Thursday, then Pinnacles on Friday.

How were the wildflowers?

Hope you had a good weekend of riding. It sure looks like a bunch of us did!

Hell yes! Carrizo plain, though it was just a brief ride through:


Wheatwacker: are those pictures from walker ridge and around indian valley reservoir? Is there a way to go down to the reservoir and then direct to Hough springs?

Nice Pics Todd... Here are mine..

Some of the pics look like we were riding in a pack of dust. In reality the dust was not that bad it was just that the group had all come together 30 yards before..

We had a great time.. Aaron might be able to share some pics of the hot tubs..
