    I'm in Natomas. After a 20+ year hiatus from riding I'm looking to get back on the horse. I'm hoping to pick-up a Kawasaki KLX250s in the near future. Would definitely like to do some local trail riding when I do.

    I'm in Auburn and ride a couple days a week year round. I mainly ride American river canyons, Foresthill, mosquito ridge area, to the Truckee area. Now that my favorite higher elevation rides are less accessible I'm looking for more lower elevation stuff. My schedule is all over the place but I prefer weekdays and any avoidance of larger crowds. If anyone wants to come up and ride in this area shoot me a PM.
    Great thread idea, hopefully this will become a link for area rides / riders.

    I ride pretty much all the same areas. I have a 2-4 guys I go with. 2 of us for sure are doing part of the TAT this year. I can't ride on week days :(

    OK. I'll shoot one out there.
    I was planning on riding either Sunday, Monday or Tuesday next week (29th, 30th or 31st). I was thinking Yankee Jim's to Mosquito Ridge to Gorman Ranch to Chickenhawk to Ponderosa. It's easy dirt / gravel roads with some twisty pavement. It can be done in a couple hours easy. Any takers let me know or post up here.

    Hey Parx! :wave Long time no talk. What's it been, 45 minutes? lol

    I hail from Roseville and my stable consists of a 2006GSXR600 race bike, a 2003 Adventurestrom 1000 and a plated XR650R.

    Yeah the big bike is perfect. How about we meet at 10:00 at the Starbucks off I-80 at the Foresthill road exit. I'll be riding a black BMW F800GS. Anyone else who wants to go is welcome.

    Sweet I'm glad to see rides planned in here. That is why I started the thread. I'm super busy with work for the next few weeks and then have a DV trip planned. After that I will have to meet up with some of you for a ride.

    Speaking of DV, I'm probably going to haul my F8 down to DV Wednesday (2/1) and come home Friday (2/3). If anyone wants in, or is going to be there then and wants to ride, let me know.
