    Well I ride through Sac often.:norton I'm from Reno but travel to Stockton all the time. Oh, UCS grad too.

    Do you guys have a goto dyno shop in town. KTM 990 adventure 2008 is in need of that special tuneECU treatment.

    Talk to tahoeacr (Jeff). I think he comes down and uses the one at CHM. He also knows all there is to know about ECU tuning on your bike. No really....

    Citrus Heights.
    Try to get a couple rides to the mountains each month in spring/summer/fall.
    Don't have a "big" bike, or a "new" bike. But I have 4 that are plated and 2 that aint. Sometimes ride with GCDSR's,
    Try to hit the BSAONC motherlode ride each year.
    Former events chaiman of the trailbike sportsman's association.
    Ride whenever possable...as opposed to the truck.
    No longer take too big of a risk, but still doing it...
    My own group of riders is the
    Seventh Day Adventurists ...in action doing rides since the 80's.
    trail rides, street rides, and dualsport.
    Look forward to catching up to some of you characters on a ride some time.

    If anyone else is running a B50's or XS650's in town speak up.

    I'm a retired old goat and can pretty much pick my time and place. I've also discovered that if it ain't easy...I don't want to do it. But other than that I still like to get out there and see what happens. I'll watch for opportunities and just might join you. I'm pretty familiar with Colusa, Lake, Yolo & Mendocino.

    Hi to jstory.:wink:
