Re: 4/5/18 Dualsporting Southern California With Dave, Tiny & Bill

In Summary Since I had earplugs in, I was sleeping okay and the Mucinex was allowing me to breathe. I was awakened early in the morning by Bill grabbing my foot and I came up swinging, much to his and Tiny's entertainment! We loaded up the bikes in Bill's trailer and pointed Tiny's pickup north. Wh...

Re: 4/5/18 Dualsporting Southern California With Dave, Tiny & Bill

The Final Day Four We awoke from the quaint hotel in King City rested and refreshed for our last day. My cold/cough was still getting the best of me, but I was up early and went in search of a Starbucks. Found it. Due to our reroute from the day prior, we had to stay on Hwy 101 for awhile (yawn), h...

Re: 4/5/18 Dualsporting Southern California With Dave, Tiny & Bill

Day Three Overnight I had acquired a bad cold and a cough, but we were up early and headed to breakfast. I also had to go to Rite-Aid for a new memory card and some Mucinex. We left the Coalinga oil rigs and made our way west over the Los Gatos Road. Of course it started to rain along the way. Howe...

Re: 4/5/18 Dualsporting Southern California With Dave, Tiny & Bill

Day Two After a nice meal, we had a good night's sleep and were raring to go on Day 2. We did get a chuckle at the hotel's efforts to scare of the starlings, but they weren't fooled. We loaded up and headed west to Frazier Park for breakfast after topping off the tanks. https://photos.smugmug.com/M...

Re: 4/5/18 Dualsporting Southern California With Dave, Tiny & Bill

Day One Early Thursday morn we headed to SeaneS's House in Santa Maria (an old friend of Dave's and his dog 'Dude'), parked our rig and proceeded to get ready. Bill got the vacation started by having his mighty BMW fall on the curb as he was getting ready. Some fixing with a metal coat hangar and w...

4/5/18 Dualsporting Southern California With Dave, Tiny & Bill

DaveR took his own truck and left earlier, but Tiny Knight, Bill Ward and I met up at Tiny's in Medford at 6AM then pointed his truck south. Along the way, there were stories to be told and we saw the caravan of Monster Energy Trucks heading to the Seattle Supercross (for the following Saturday Nig...

3/31/18 Trials Riding At Riant's

Dave Riant had spent a decent amount of time laying out some trials sections at his place and had an invite to other like-minded riders, so we all met up Saturday morn. Those who showed up were Mike Casper, Walt Foster and we even had a cameo appearance by Joe Stagg and Tiny Knight. Of course I bro...

3/28/18 Riding Forest Creek With Donna, Tiny & Willy

Donna had the day off, so we decided to get her more seat time on her bike. We headed out (after I had to return home to pick up my wallet) and made our way out to the Bunny Meadows Staging Area. We leashed up Scout, visited with a couple friends (Jamison Whitehead, Walt Foster and John Mittendorf)...

3/4/18 Riding With Neal & Kai On My Trials Bike

Cabin Fever had really set in bad! Neal was chomping at the bit to get his son, Kai, out on his new [to him] Kawasaki KX100 - an upgrade from his old Yamaha YZ85. I hadn't ridden my trials bike in awhile, so decided to take it up. We landed at a private spot, unloaded and enjoyed the lack of moistu...

2/27/18 MRA Trailwork On ATVs

Met up with SteveR and BillW to do some trail recon and clearing, although the snow gods had left large amounts of white stuff on the mountains. I also brought Scout the Wonder Dawg to help. We were all amazed at how deep the snow was without going very high in altitude. And ATVs are ideal for snow...

2/11/18 Riding with Sigel, Degeyters, Lee and the OMRA Boys (Reid, Cady and Worley)

Steve Degeyter emailed me to come join a ride he had planned in an obscure spot in Southern Oregon. Leading the ride would be Jim Sigel, Steve & Zeke Degeyter, plus the OMRA Boys of Ryen Reid, Dave Cady and Chuck Worley. Sounded like a fun time! I got up early and headed over. The Weather Guess...

2/4/18 Superbowl Ride at Bohall's With Donna

What better day to ride than Superbowl Sunday? No traffic, and like-minded people out exploring the outdoors! My Wife, Donna, hasn't ridden in almost two years, so I had tuned up her KTM 200 to be quite perfect (after all, I am her factory mechanic!) and nothing was left for chance. We loaded up an...

2/3/18 Trailriding With Neal & Kai

On the day before Superbowl, Neal & Kai wanted to go for a short ride. I finished reworking the carb on the Wife's KTM 200 and needed to take it out for a shakedown ride. Little did I know it would be more than that! Our first piece was riding in an old area and checking out a dilapidated mine ...
