    So, I'm thinking of tying together two of my favorite things, junk food and pointless motorcycle rides and instituting a new tradition:

    THE ANNUAL LABOR DAY WEEKEND IN-N-OUT BURGER DASH

    damn, don't that look tasty!!!

    So, the closest In-N-Out to Seattle in in Redding, CA. My plan is to either leave Seattle Friday night or EARLY Saturday morning and do a day of super slab into Redding. Eat a burger. On Sunday, I want to hit hwy 3 from Red Bluff to Yreka then Hwy 96 from Yreka to Arcata, then see what time permits. If there is enough time in the day I may try to hit the Lost Coast Hwy south of Arcata and maybe camp on the coast.

    Monday I'd head home.

    It'll be mixed camping and motels, and mostly slab.

    anyone??

    The site lacks details or lengths of the routes.

    Got details? Or is this a you-need-to-know-The Grand Poo Ba-and-the-secret-handshake kind of thing?

    Well the routes are a well guarded secret, and this is part of what makes the Gypsy Tour the outstanding event that it is. You have no idea where you are going to be riding when you leave for the event. You show up on Friday or Saturday and you are given the route sheets for where you are going the first day. Saturday evening you camp in an excellent location with showers, grass camping, and a great meal. You are then given the route for Sunday and you repeat the process on a completely new set of roads. In addition to this you participate in a poker run each day with cash prizes. There are GS Sections each day for the dirt minded. And if you have a duffle bag or similar with all of your camping gear they will port it to the next day's camping site so you don't have to carry it. There are usually between 100 and 125 people who attend

    The Range of Light is my favorite event every year. The Nor Cal Club does an outstanding job of organizing this event. They consistently put you on some of the best motorcycle roads in the state and they pride themselves on finding great roads that are seldom traveled. It is a riders event, as you will typically have routes between 250 and 350 miles a day. Great roads, great camping, great food and a great group of people make it a hard event to beat.

    This year the Rally starts in Booneville, and I can guarantee you will ride some of the great motorcycle roads of Northern CA. Both days routes are approximately 300 miles long. It is going to be one of the best Range of Light Rallies ever. Don't miss this one, Trust me!

    Gentlemen,

    That ride sure does look interesting. So interesting, in fact, that I think it needs it's very own thread.

    And I'll stick to the burgers, thank you very much. We don't have In-N-Out here in Seattle, so it's not often I get to experience the beefity goodness of In-N-Out Burgers.

    Cheers,

    Luca

    Your right, and I was planning on starting a thread this week. If you complete your route as described you will probably see a bunch of BMW's along the way.

    IN-and-F*CKING-OUT burgers are the best!! Their fries is the bomb too. Make mine a double-double w/ extra onions, fresh hot golden fries with salt and an ice cold Root Beer :D Darin

    I only eat hamburgers in Cali, and I only make it to Cali about twice a year, so I think I'll be ok.

    BTW, cudos on your sig line. I fancy myself a bit of a curmudgeon.

    Jim- Thanks for the overview. I'm cautious about organized rides ... as in they too often turn out to be so chopped and formed. This sounds like a winner. Thanks again.
