Got a 4 day weekend ahead of me and definitely want to manage at least one day to play in the dirt. No set plans yet, so I figured I'd post up this thread to not only invite some of y'all but also figure out a place to go. So who wants to get DIRTY!!!????

I was thinking about that yesterday. I was like freak I think he has taken my WR out to the trails more than I ever got to.

I would love to get a bike here, but that money I got from my YZ is in the bank waiting for when we sign the contract on our house. As soon as I get some official news we will start them building in Elko. And I have to have the down payment ($2500!!) within 21 days of signing.

But hopefully we'll get to Elko things will work out, and in the Spring I'll be looking for a new bike!!! Hopefully a 2010+ YZ450. I may even try to find a new one stashed in the back of a dealership somewhere. I'm sick of buying someone else's basket case.

Will, how about a run up through tollhouse and railroad grade this weekend? I need to break in a new toy and don't want to get too far off-road if there's an issue. I have some nice tracks from tollhouse to Shaver on railroad then to Pine Flat all dirt.

Ill buy lunch in Shaver

I'll give you $200 for your 426. That will help fund you a plated bike:evilgrin0013::evilgrin0013:

Where? I made a nice leisurely run up JosÚ basin to railroad to 168 and a burger then reversed route. about 120 miles of smiles :)

Was alone so I didn't push it by adding in the trip to Pine flat, I will next time though!

Do you want to do a plated run or a green sticker??

May 21st, 2013, 12:43 PM
I got a couple buddies that may go so it will have to be a non-plated ride. As for where, well I'm still up in the air. I would much rather ride some tight technical single tracks than fire roads. Any ideas?

I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place , DRZ 400 (2006) or a 250S (2010) both in Orange Count. Price is about the same...but I still like the 2013 250S @ Wilson off the floor....:(

Meet up will be at the Chevron in North fork. Meet up time is still being determined.

As long as nobodys running late we should be @ the chevron in North Fork between 8:15 & 8:30. It takes me an hour the get to North Fork from Sanger and I'm guessing it would take about 45 minutes from most of Fresno.

See you guys on Sunday! :D:thumbup:

As we were leaving we rolled up to this wreck on the main road up to the trails. Head on collision with a dirt bike and a jeep. Poor guy's leg was a mess. I'm glad our group all rolled away in one piece but it was definitely a reminder to be cautious up there, especially on the more populated roads.

We all got a good chuckle from that so thank you! Now get that 426 going and trust me, it will make every hill you hit on the DRZ 10x easier.

Until sand works itself inside the sock and thrashes the seals worse than if you hadn't used them.
