    Try BHP motorsports near Roseville. They did some dyno tuning on my former Triumph, really great work. Owner is Aaron.

    Anyone want to meet up Friday (8/11/17) in Placerville for a ride? I got no plan, just want to hit some forestry roads and explore around the Ice House area. If your up for it, lets meet at Mel's Diner in Placerville between 8-9am. I'll be the bald guy in the Raiden jacket. I would say just reply to this, but odds are I won't log back on by then.

    Can't ride this weekend. But I am available to ride weekdays next week. Took a few days off before starting a new job.

    A buddy and I are going to truck our bikes up to NC to do some riding up toward Alleghany and Downieville. Where is a good spot to park the truck for the day?

    Gold Flat exit. Right turn and immediate left onto the frontage. In front of the gas station there is a long parking spot that is usually empty. If that is taken there is another gas station on the opposite side of the freeway. It has a big lot. I haven't seen people park at that one but if you are out of the way and leave a note you may be good.

    I can verify the route described is all open and passable. You may find a tricky spot at the dam at bowman lake, but I would be very surprised if there isn't a motorcycle bypass right around it. Most of my travel in the vicinity is by truck. It's all quite dry right now so dusty. Some silt on north Bloomfield/graniteville road. Look for this overturned 4Runner (nobody hurt) at that intersection from yesterday.
