    Well it looks like Kali Trailrider opted to exchange his free entry in the Wildwood 400 for the more dirt oriented Red Mountain 350, So to keep the ball rolling,

    I'm looking for a guy to help spread the word about the Wildwood 400. This rider should love to spank the sports bike guys in the twisties, Wheelie through the

    Redwoods, and Flattrack through the forrest! So I have one FREE entry to any inmate who fits this job discription and is available to ride from Wildwood, CA to

    Fortuna, CA. and back, June 22nd, 23rd. The first qualified inmate to respond gets the job. Thanks Bob

    Bob, I think I am your man. I've been wanting to get up your way for your rides, and here is my chance. I love riding dirt in Northern California!

    Motowest, It will be great to have you on the ride!! From Santa Cruz the Staging area is not to bad a drive plus there's

    free camping there the night before and we usually wind up with a pretty good pot luck dinner for the guys that can

    make it. Anyway send me an email with your contact info to, bob@ironmandualsport.com And I know there are a lot of

    Dual Sport riders down in Santa Cruz, maybe you can round up a group for the ride. Well look forward to hearing from

    you, it will be a great ride. Thanks Bob


    Damn now I have to think of something else to keep this thread alive...... Anyone want to buy some KLIM gear?


    Silly things people do in the desert.

    Well I guess I'll talk about my Nevada rides a little.

    The 2 Northern rides are the Emigrant Trails Ride, July 26, 27, 28, 29.

    And the Soldier Meadows Ride, September 13, 14 ,15 16.

    These are both 4 day rides with similar 600-700 mile routes.

    There is a strict rider limit of 12 riders for these rides so they usually

    sell out soon after they get posted on my website, you can take a look at it here,

    http://www.ironmandualsport.com/Rider_Club.php

    Here are a few pictures from past rides, of course like I've said before,

    I suck at getting pictures of the rides, always having to much fun riding to stop.


    Both these rides start in the Sierras

    [​IMG]


    Then a little cross country through the desert.

    [​IMG]


    Of course tere's always some fantastic views

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    And you never know what you might find, people who spend to much time in the desert get a little crazy.

    [​IMG]


    Always want to take the time to stop and smell the flowers.

    [​IMG]


    Well that's all for now,I'll post more about these rides

    and others soon and you can always learn more about my rides

    and all the Trail Tested products in the Ironman Dual Sport gear and parts store here,

    http://www.ironmandualsport.com

    Thanks for looking. Bob

    Looks like the So Cal group is stepping up.
    The dates are 8/10 and 8/11.

    So we have plenty of time to plan this. :deal

    I am in for sure and will go with the flow.
    I will most likely add a few days to take advantage of the time up north.
    So I will be driving up with at least one other.
    Cory is going to do the soldier ride and I will talk him into this one too!!

    So that makes four of us so far!!
    Not bad considering we are still eight months out.

    So her's a little bit more about the Emigrant Trails and Soldier Meadow rides.

    The enthusiasm from you So. Cal. guys is Great!!

    I'm always amazed at how much water there is in the desert in early summer.

    You can still see the ruts from the wagon wheels of pioneers on there way to Oregon in the mid 1800s

    on this section of the Applegate Trail.

    [​IMG]

    And I can't even count how many old mines, ranches, and homesteads we explore.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    On the second day of both rides near the end of our day we visit the site of the

    B-24D Crash site in Southern Oregon. On February 9th 1945 the 11 member crew left Gowen Field

    Near Boise Idaho for a Training mission to Hamilton Field in California. The plane crashed on the

    rocky peaks at about 10:00 pm that night all crewmen were lost

    Well so there's a little more about the rides I'll post a little more later
    .

    i plan on heading up your way next summer.

    i've spent plenty of time in Chico. i was on my 1977 Honda 550F and explored some of the gravel mountain roads about 10 years ago.

    i love it up there. i could see living there someday.

    i'll hit you up when i plan a trip up there.

    Well time I got back to this thread, so I'll start out with another

    FREE entry into the BOOMTOWN RALLY. This is a a fantastic ride,

    September 28th and 29th with a different loop each day from the

    Boomtown Casino just West on Reno Nevada. I've got A,B,and C loops

    on this ride so it's great for any riders from A level single track to scenic

    Adventure bike routes. So this time there's a hook ( I've got to make a

    living somehow ) the first inmate to purchase ANYTHING from the

    Ironman Dual Sport Gear and Parts Store,

    http://shop.ironmandualsport.com/category.sc;jsessionid=76F490589E06A5ADACA6628752DA0948.qscstrfrnt02?categoryId=8

    Wins the FREE entry. I sell every product from the manufactures listed

    even if it doesn't show up in the store and just added REKLUSE auto clutches

    so if you don't see it listed send me an email bob@ironmandualsport.com

    or the old fashioned way just call me at 530-680-6019

    Here's some pics and video I through together from pre- riding

    the Boomtown Rally. Thanks and I can't wait to see who wins. Bob

    Thanks roundtripping ! I have to admit when I first saw this thread I figured

    my little business would be lost in a sea of vendors post from companies that

    have a huge developed product line and developed advertising. To my surprise

    so far it's just been me, must admit I kind of like the opportunity. So here's some

    more. Of course the FREE entry for the Boomtown Rally is still available that's

    $100 entry for a great ride just for buying anything in my Gear and parts Store,

    http://shop.ironmandualsport.com/category.sc;jsessionid=76F490589E06A5ADACA6628752DA0948.qscstrfrnt02?categoryId=8

    Of course being an AMA promoter and putting on some of the best dual sport

    rides in the country doesn't quite pay the bills. I spend most of the winter months

    wrenching on bikes in my shop and rely heavily on my online store for support

    I work pretty hard to make sure the products I carry are the best you can buy

    Here are a few of the brands we just added


    Double Take Mirrors, you've seen them, read about them, etc. They're Great!!

    and of course you can buy them here, http://shop.ironmandualsport.com/category.sc?categoryId=219

    [​IMG]


    REKLUSE auto clutches, I just became a Rekluse dealer last week. Can't wait

    to try this out on the trails this weekend, and check out the added left hand rear brake!

    I've had Rekluse clutches on bikes before and several of the guys I ride with love them

    All I can say is every good thing you've heard about Rekluse is true. Buy them here

    http://shop.ironmandualsport.com/category.sc?categoryId=220

    [​IMG]


    Golan, Super Mini fuel filter. If you have a fuel injected bike you need one of these!

    In fact with all the garbage in our fuel and what I see in the bowl or clogging the jets

    of the carbs I work on, these are going on all my bikes. You guessed it you can buy them here,

    http://shop.ironmandualsport.com/category.sc?categoryId=221

    Well that's all for now, thanks for taking the time to look at my stuff and remember to
