    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.

    Hey, thinking of some kinda ride this weekend... maybe, or if not then over the thanksgiving weekend.

    But I was wondering if they have closed anything yet up the foresthill divide due to "wetness".
    You know how they get all worried !!
    Any one who knows please post up.

    Plated or ohv...

    It's pretty wet from the last couple of days. Snow up on Robinson Flat. Nothing is closed from what I seen though. This weekend is supposed to be nice but more rain predicted for Monday and Wednesday up there. What kind of bike you riding?
