    Johnson Valley.
    Cal City.
    Jawbone.

    Thanks for the quick info, especially the toolkit thread! I'm going to hit Rowher this Saturday provided I can get my new tires mounted tomorrow.

    here's the Rowher thread

    stage out of Staging Area 1.
    trails are marked.

    make sure you are up to date with tags or green/red sticker. Forest Service peeps will be there checking. as well as a spark arrestor.

    and get an "Adventure Pass" before you go.

    they have them at Bill's Place convenient store on Sierra Hwy right off of Sand Cyn.

    Thanks. This is my daily driver so the tags are current, and I'll be riding it there so I won't need the pass, right?

    yeah, if you ride in, you are fine.

    have a great ride and post up in the Rowher thread. there might be some other guys riding Saturday if you want some vets to show you around.
    all the locals are super cool and it doesn't matter what skill level you are. just go ride! :ricky

    Thanks again. I'm excited for Saturday...I've put 13k on this bike since I got it about a year and a half ago and have yet to get a proper dirt session in, which is part of what I bought it for. I'm going to take it easy and have a good time (I'm old enough to realize I'm not immortal anymore :lol3) and I'll be sure to chat up the locals. I'll be the guy on the red G650GS with all his street gear on! :rolleyes Plus I'll only be on 80/20 tires (Conti Trail Attack) but if all goes well I bet I'll be asking Santa for some TKC80s...

    I have some used fronts; K60 Scout and a TKC-80 and a rear TKC-80 that willl fit your bike if you want to try a more aggressive tire for getting on the dirt. Yours for FREE!
