that looks AMAZING! I need to head up that direction. Does your bike need plates up there?

The best place to ride is where there isnt anyone else. A newb doesn't need any other distractions. The problem is that for you Bayarea guys, you gotta drive a couple of hrs to find something like that.

If you wanna place like that, come on up to the ElDorado Nat. I can put you on dirt rds that run for hundreds of miles.

For National forests in Ca you need a plated bike to ride on the roads and trails (where allowed). But many of them also have OHV areas, where stickered bikes are allowed.

Don't know about OHVs in El Dorado NF, hopefully terdog55 can tell us. Nearest local places are Metcalf, Carnegie, and Hollister Hills.

I far as I know, you only need a CA plate to ride designated roads that are for street legal only.
When you start your ride, and theres still that fresh mtn air with a hint of dew, man! You feel like a million bucks!
You do however, need a red/green sticker to ride the National Forests, as well as a spark arrestor. When you get out of the valley, even a red sticker works.

Ill share my mountains with you guys. Just dont tell anyone else...

I'm not sure exactly what you mean by the bolded part. As a point of clarification, a plate will let you ride anywhere in CA where riding is allowed. A plated bike can ride in any dirtbike park in CA, whether it be USFS, BLM, State or County without any Green or Red Sticker.

you dont NEED a plated bike to ride on trails. A red / green sticker is all that is needed, i.e. the minimum. A "plate" will get you everywhere. The statement was possibly misleading and could be read as you need to have a plate to ride the trails.

The Eldo allows red & green all yr round.

Haha, a confusing thread for sure.

A plate can ride anywhere you can ride a motorcycle, any time of the year that it is legal to ride there.

If you have an unplated bike, to ride in a dirtbike park, you need a green or a red sticker (which is an offroad license plate). Green sticker can ride year round (when open) and there are various restrictions on red sticker bikes. There is a PDF in the Red / Green sticker thread which has all of them.

I just updated the first post with links to Hollister Upper and Lower ranches for the benefit of those who can do the Garrahan clinic Dec 9, or the open practice Dec 8.

Anyone who rides street, and has never ridden dirt, should do this...

PiPi has the best camping of anywhere I've camped with a dirtbike, by a large margin. It is right on the Yuba and there are plenty of shade trees.

Drawback is you can't ride in and out, so you have to have a DS or trailer or push your bikes in and out. Once you are at the entrance you hit a trail across the street.

We would camp at PiPi, then trailer the bikes to 5 corners, about 2 miles up from the campground. Ride a few hours in the am, then come back and play in the water with the kids and pan for gold.

Just google "pipi campground".

If you are a newb rider then ride over at Goldnote, if not hit Elkins Flat.
