    I just got a green sticker 450r. I've taken it riding twice, once to Carnegie and once to Hollister. It was fun, but both times I went with friends who don't have bikes and sharing the bike and gear was a big drag.

    So I'm looking for riding buddies around here. If you live in San Francisco, we can fit two bikes in my Tacoma easily. I have good tie downs and a ramp. If you live in East Bay or South Bay, that works too.

    I also have a plated XRL that I'm building into an adventure bike. Looking for riding buddies for that too.

    You should hook up with my son. He has a CRF450x and a XRL.
    He knows all of the trails up in Mendocino National Forrest.

    Down here in Gilroy. I have a brand new WR450f but no one to ride with. If you are interested in riding up in the Sierras let me know. I also have a 650 L. Its punched out to 675 cc, high compression, cammed, lots of fun. I ride down at Hollistor quite a bit, but not much in the summer, too hot and dusty.

    Cool, Steve, I'll ping you in a couple weeks to see if he wants to do a Carnegie trip.

    mongox, I'm down for the Sierrras but I'd like to get some more experience locally and get more used to the bike first. I'll let you know the next time I'm headed to Hollister.
