GIven your rig I'd suggest one of the campsite east of Cliffdell near one of the American River crossings.

Quite frankly when Ive camped there I just play it by ear.

I cant give exacts until I know whose coming/bike types etc.

Suggestions welcome
I'm all for sitting around the camp fire and would prefer to be with everyone else. As long as the truck can make it down the road/through the trees I'll be ok. It's 4x4. Keep me in mind. I'm open to just GSing it on FS roads if there are other GSers who are coming. And there is a chance I will have found a thumper by then.

Yeah, Im all for a good time. We didnt go to that campground but I believe you could get to it. I'll try find out more. It would be good if the guys on the GS's could ride at least a day. I swear that trail wasnt that bad last time! Some of the crap Tony and I rode yesterday was so rutted and sheer that a GS clutch would last all of five minutes and above all I dont want anyone to get hurt. By GS I mean BMW 11xx bikes because of their size and weight.

I will look around to see if there is a bypass route around the "Talcum hill". I think the GS riders could get up there if that one obstacle wasnt there. I know for sure there is an alternate route to the east further but I am not sure. It is an alternate route to Funny Rocks. There is a dirt road off of 410 that you can take. Its been four years since I did that one though so Im not sure what shape it is in. I guarantee a GS could run it though if it is still open.



Ill get more info as the week progresses.

Tony has Pix somewhere that might be helpful but I believe he's busy working on a KLR today.

At the very least the fire roads give view points second to none and it is always a good time out there.

I will come up Saturday and depending on how many go the route my GS needs to go - I may stay or bail. I would prefer to stay round the fire....but we shall see.....

Enjoy

- I run over and off of stuff (crash)
- DRZ's tend to become airborn quite easily
- Need to carry tape in the future to keep pants on (thankyou Tony)
- Need to get bigger coffee and sleep more than 2 hours before embarking on such a ride. (zzzzzzzzz)
- Should have eaten cheeseburger when Tony did before ride. I felt like a Snicker's add. (tree? What tree?)

First off....HOLY CRAP NICE RIG....

Secondly, yes I would be all for that 2 day plan...crazy day and easy day and if we have enough people maybe we could split to a medium challenge and a easy easy day on Sunday.

Nice pics, Tony. Green Hornet Rulz. Looks like you guys had your work cut out for you. If it rains more this week, water wings or pontoons may beome an option for next weekend. I'll bet "Whistlin' Jacks" could rustle up a hot adult beverage, however. Any further thoughts/suggestions on a Saturday morning meeting spot?

I dunno, I'm kinda skeered. I've spent enough time in the ER this year, can't really afford to do more. I may pass. Besides, I hope to still be hungover from Friday night.
