    Bad timing because of the rain, but I'm looking to start riding regularly again.

    I usually go to cow through the Lakeport exit.

    Anyone down to go in the near future, let me know!

    I'm pretty much available any day besides Mon/Tues.

    EDIT: Guess I should add, I want trail riding only. I have a plated bike, but not too interested in riding on asphalt.

    Thinking of going to Cow Saturday before it rains again.

    Maybe around 9 in the west side staging area. Usually earlier
    but I think it might be a little chilly.

    Trail ride, not big bike friendly.

    Anyone interested?

    I'm a wee bit under the weather at the moment, but if I feel better I may be up for it.

    Hey Dean,

    I am probably game. Gotta take the new 500 out for its intro dirt bath.

    And convince you to buy my DR soon.

    Dean,
    Look for a bunch of us from SF and Santa Rosa. I'm not sure how many will be there since I'm not in charge, but at least 5 or 6. We may be a little later than 9 since the plan is to eat breakfast in Hopland at 8.
    fun fun

    Hopefully, I'll do more riding during the spring and summer. But on occasion, with weather and temperature permitting, I'll ride her this winter. I just haven't sprung for the proper gear...black leather jacket with various patches, 3/4 gold flake helmet, goggles, scarf....:evil

    Hey I wanna come. I'm still relatively new to the area (santa rosa) though. Anyone care to fill me in on what bike to bring or where exactly the parking lot is?

    I wanna go too! Sounding like it might be crowded now haha



    Its real easy to find. I'm sure you could just follow somebody up there.

    Here is directions to the staging area from the Talmage Rd, When heading N.101 take the Talmage Rd Exit in Ukiah

    So I'm heading up with DaveBro tomorrow, Will be at the west side staging area
    between 9 & 9:30.

    Dave will be riding a TE250 and I'll be one either a TE450 or a DRZ.
    We're medium level riders not fast, not slow can ride most anything at Cow,
    not always well.

    Charlie we may stop in Hopland and check in with you guys, at the Bluebird
    is my guess?

    Here are directions for you that haven't been there yet.

    Mark bring the new 500 and get it dirty.

    Ory if you're feeling better try and make it.

    See you guys there.

    Xdbx (Daniel) will be giving me a ride there in his truck and have his KTM525 (I think) and I (Roger) will be on my old XR500. Cant wait! Medium fast and ride anything at Cow sounds about right.

    Due to technical difficulties, we're leaving Santa Rosa about1.5 hr late...
    Maybe we'll see you out there.

    I didn't realize our ride was on ADV until Dean (mootsuno) & Dave (davebro) walked in to the Bluebird this morning. Conditions were great despite the inch-thick ice covering the bike-eating mud puddles. 10 of us set out, 9 made it to the first stop. Good group of competent, fast riders. (damn I'm out of shape!)
    Hope everyone else had as much fun as i did.
    Cheers!

    Yes good day out fellas.

    New KTM was flogged a bit for its first ride. But now she knows what to expect from me!

    Let's go again real soon.

    I'm almost always up for a dirt ride (weekends).
    Shoot me a PM whenever it's time to ride!

    Lemme know if you ever want to throw a leg over it.
    I for one would love to check out the 500, or the 300.
    (I sort of think a 300 may be my next bike when I'm ready for something new...)

    Made a deal today to sell the 300 to my good buddy.

    They are a magic mix of torque, light weight and traction.

    Hard not to like one set up properly for trail work.

    You won't miss the weight of the Berg.
