What's up you Bay Area FFs? I'd like to start a thread for all of us here to post up with weekend get together rides, and also plan some more serious overnight to multi day rides. If you have a ride you'd like to host PM me and I will post it up here. If this gets too crazy we will have to come up with something else. It would also be nice just to meet some of you FFs I wave at as we pass on the slab heading for our far off destinations. This page will be for all ability levels, although not all rides should be considered beginer friendly. Also, all bikes are welcome. I have my preference, orange, but I really just love motorcycles in general. My name is Todd and I take adventure riding pretty seriously. I post a fair amount of ride reports on South Bay Riders under the name DoubleD, but haven't been as active here on ADV simply because I like the tools SBR provides and it is a very local forum. (There's cool map tools I can use to show exactly where my pics are from, etc...) Check my RRs in my sig line to get an idea of what I'm into. I've done a fair amount of trips solo and a few with others I've met online. It seems to me like there are a lot of like minded riders in this area, but nobody's organized anything here. I know there isn't a whole lot of good dirt anywhere near us, but we can still have some fun day rides near us. So wha'dya say? Even if you can't make the first ever BAARC ride, is this thread worth pursuing? And no, there will be no official club, no patch for your leather jacket, although we might have a secret handshake... Cheers! Upcoming Rides: <!-- / message --><!-- sig --> Epic 2,400 mile 5 state ride... and your invited Hey Adv'ers, This Aug 19th 2 riders from this forum and myself are going to set out on a 18 day 2,800 mile journey thru Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, Idaho, Montana and Colorado returning home Sept 5th My friend Mike and I have bought the Garmin topo products needed to route this ride properly and we have completed the GPS track.
