    We have been blessed for having lots of riding area and surrounded by good people. Many of us have been riding together for over 4 years and we developed great friendships on and off our bikes, including on the net.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>

    For 2012 and on, I would like to focus more on Adventure Riding, which involves traveling (camp or motel) and dirt riding combined.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    The weekend riding will still be part of our riding activities, very much needed as a quick getaway or escape from the city life, get to see familiar PPs and welcome new riders. likewise, local riding is a great opportunity to improve our dirt skills. <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>

    We all know, those adventure bikes are meant for something, not just big dirt bikes. That said, hope to see more peeps to get aboard and join our future rides.

    Really thankful to everyone for making this thread alive and enjoysome.

    The intention is to provide an opportunity for individuals to meet other riders, plan rides, talk about up coming events, post ride reports, and discuss bikes and related equipment......:ricky


    Let's make this our living journal....:thumb

    Just before you make a left turn to the street where the 7-11 is, there's a little business section on the left side, or go ahead and park your truck in front of the 7-11 and ride back to the mex restaurant (Ranch Side).

    I think Rincon is still closed, but there's a neat trail that we did and this time I plan to do the loop which will bring us back to SCD. Should be home by noon, unless you want to stop for lunch at In-and Out on Sand Canyon.

    Tomorrow's forecast is 75°F and cloudy. I like wearing armor and jacket so this condition is perfect for me. No worry about getting dehydrated and overheating.

    Artboy, don't be shocked :cry if they call my name as the winner :clap of the brand new GS800 giveaway. Please tell them that I prefer the gray color.

    For those planning to enter the drawing, sorry it's already closed :lol3 officially by me.

    well shoot! if there's going to be photo ops count me in!

    seriously though, anyone mind if I tag along? I was planning on heading up there this weekend but would prefer the company.

    I have to check my tires when I get home however. I changed them last weekend and gave myself TWO pinch flats in the process :baldy

    Should be fine but you never know, could have put a slow leak on that last one.

    One of these days I'll get it right :deal

    Congrats Jammin'. That is a great picture. I thought it needed to be on the front page since you first shared it with us.

    Maybe I'll see you guys on Lynx tomorrow.:ricky
