    Dual Sport Ride: Saturday 12-Dec-2009, Dublin to Carnegie



    I'm not a big fan of the ADVrider custom of one huge thread with a thousand posts that might or might not contain the details I'm looking for deep inside. But I'll be happy to follow this thread in case something develops and I would like to get involved in one-day rides on Saturdays if any happen. I'm trying to do my part to get something going, especially to get the newer dual sport riders to finally get their bikes into the dirt.

    i wanna go. can't do it this weekend due to prior commitments, but next time :)
    good luck with figuring out a way to organize the info so people can find it. maybe they can make a sticky and you can just edit the first post when a ride comes up?

    I'm confused. Looks like we will ride a bunch of Highway 25 not 198. Is there a GPS track for this? Thanks,
    Richard

    My screw up, I did mean 25 not 198.

    I couldn't get the gpx file to load here on ADV, but I got it on SBR...

    I have purposely kept this a mainly street ride, to allow for anybody to come.

    I think I'm going to pass on this one, but I'm up for running the baja 1000 race course soon. When is that ride scheduled for?

    I'll watch this thread - I'm interested in anything a bit more dirt oriented.

    Sounds like a ton o' fun, Todd :thumb

    Unfortunately, the only adventuring I'm going to be doing for awhile consists of navigating through the house on crutches. But, on the plus side my ankle is now completely metal-free :clap

    Have a great time, everyone, and please post up some photos so that I may live vicariously through your adventures!!

    Just went on a demo of the F650GS today. Yes, I loved it! Its so much more comfortable than the SV650 I'm riding now. So how happy was I to see someone wanting to start BAARC. Also, lusting after a Suzuki DR200SE or something in that range that's street legal. Dang, I'm starting to think I should have kept the house with the garage instead of moving to the big city! :wink:

    Just returned from Death Valley on the SV. Dropped it a few times in Titus Canyon and once in the snow on the way up to the Charcoal Kilns. The bike faired well but I came away with a bruised knee and ego. After this trip I'm hooked and craving the lessons that undoubted will humiliate my over compensating ego. Yep, I'm a wannabe.

    Hope BAARC works out for us all. :clap

    Todd is going to do his best to keep the 1st post updated, so we don't have to look thru 50 pages to find group rides.. if you have a ride in the bay area please pm him the details and I bet he can add it to the first post

    Subscribing. I won't be able to do much riding any time soon, I buggered my knee saving an ugly tank-slapper 3 weeks ago, and probably won't be ready to ride for another 2~3 months....

    But this looks like my kind of ride/route/group.
