Yea I do my best to show where I've gone. I tend to sneak the bike into most pictures, but the truth is that I ride not just because I love being on 2 wheels (I do, don't get me wrong) but also largely because I enjoy seeking out the places where many never go. It'd be a bit counter productive to go there, write a report on it, and show nothing in regard to what the place was like haha. When you're down this way next feel free to touch base - would be happy to show you any number of locations listed in the thread and dozens of others I've yet to touch. Definitely do. A large majority of these places are accessible on anything to an extent. Originally I rode a number of these trails on the SG250 and would stop when I could go no further. On Bowman Lake Road I took the SG to where the bridge was out and even attempted the dry creek crossing but buried it at the bottom. I then took it up a number of trails leading to the Eagle Lakes area. Sometimes it's not so much what you ride, but how determined and patient you are to get there with your machine. And I'm quite sure the Moto Guzzi would be a good bit more at home on those trails than the cheap, carbed, basically hardtail SG250 was! That said, we have such a huge diversity of trails in California. I'm trying to work out a plan with a buddy in your area (I used to live in Mountain View) in the coming weeks/months for us to do some exploration along the coast and down toward Big Sur. At the same time I'm wanting to head down toward Trona in the coming months and am also loosely planning a ride for August/September to the San Juan Mountains in Southern Colorado to ride Black Bear, Imogene, and Ophir Passes at above 13,000ft. Hopefully my future posts will inspire more trips and journeys for you and others. Cheers.
