    What: Road run and campout near the southern coast - Carrizo Plain, Pozo, Camino Cielo
    When: January 19-20
    Who: All Tiger owners are invited
    PM: For details and meet up

    Come join a group of about 25 southern California adventure riders for a weekend overnighter and adventure ride. There are enough of us Tiger 800 owners to forum our own ride group for this event. We meet for Breakfast in Ojai, head north to Maricopa, across Carrizo Plain near Bakersfield, then the back-way dirt route to Pozo Saloon for a burger, and camping at a local campground. We have firewood and beer being trucked in for an evening campfire and great stories.

    Sunday we ride to the coast for brunch, and then make the trek over El Camino Cielo, a dirt ridge-route along the southern coast above Santa Barbara.

    Friday night a handfull of us are camping out near Ojai to make it easy to arrive for the breakfast meet up.

    It's a relaxed ride, do-able on road tires if you can handle smooth dirt roads. So roadies and XC's are fine, you just want to have some dirt experience.

    Thanks for looking...PM for more details if you would like to join us.
