If anybody wants to slab it over to Fairfield we are meeting at the Chevron on 9th and Howard - 7:45 and KSU before 8:00.
I'm leaving from SF as well, so I'll swing by and meet up with you guys at the Chevron...

Looks like I'm in. I'll be with the group from Sac ADV riders (SCR).

We have all rode this area so there wont be any problems.

Exotics...Impressive!

All y'all owe me... payback is posting vids, pics, opinions on this thread... the ride isn't done after sunset.

I'm leaving from the inner Richmond. Heading over the GG bridge to the meeting point at hwy121 and hwy128.
Don't make much sense to head over to the east bay from where I'm at. Let me know if anyone wants to head out together.

I thought about going that route and meeting at Poseurs. I figured I'd just slab it and come back the GG route. I know Henry is in your neck of the woods though.

Usually back at start point by 2:30PM if noone settles in for a romantic 2-hour lunch...

Anyone in a rush? Just break away at any of the checkpoints, so hypothetically you'll be done at 9AM if you bail at the Startpoint; 10:30AM if you make CP1 and back (all slab); 12:30 if you make CP2 and back (all slab); 1:30 at CP3 and back, etc.

Oh that's early. I may go explore some more.

I just wanted to know so I can figure out which helmet setup I need. My DS helmet has a tinted visor that cannot easily be switched. I wouldn't want to bring that one if I was riding home after dark. Sounds like it is not a problem though

This ride is shaping up to have the potential to be a Grade A Clusterfuck©. But yet, I'm perversely drawn to it like an offer of free admission to a midget muy thai match.

I'd be inclined to cross the GGB and head straight to the knoxville ohv area to keep the clusterfuckage to a minimum. 8am depart from the GGB north vista?

Maybe something like this route

Chill hombre. You can do whatever you want to do. I'm not suggesting that anyone is not welcome and needs to do their own ride. I'm saying that it looks like there is going to be a big turnout and traveling in smaller groups will serve to create less problems with the ride. My preference is to ride with a smaller group to a farther meet point.

Could do.

I'm sort of inclined to stick with the group since I've never met anyone, and don't know others riding styles. Plus it's so fun to watch the clusterfuck in action. Ever been on a doc Wong ride? No insult intended to Doc. I enjoy the doc Wong rides immensely.

What kind of bike do you ride? I’m on a KLR650 which means I don’t go so fast on the freeway usually 70-75 cruising speed otherwise I start burning even more oil…

I like the look of your route though.
I'm gonna send you a PM with my phone.

Chris,

On fairweather days, we often have over 30 riders show, but it never gets crowded.

We usually break up in groups of 3-5 riders based on type bikes (plated dirt bikes, thumpers, uberbeasts, 17" street tires, etc.) and rider skill. We then leave (in small groups), a la ISDT in 1 minute intervals. The thumpers usually lead on the slab with the uberbeasts catching up... reverse after CP2. http://advrider.com/forums/showpost....postcount=3292

It's pretty laid back as everyone rides their pace and often do different tracks once up in Knoxville OHV: ADVs pretty much stick to the route. Dirt purist find the single tracks and get lost somewhere trying cross west to Napa. Inexperienced do a bit of dirt (CP2 to CP3) then head up to Lower Lake to strafe CA-29 back down.

Only courtesy is to help downed riders pick up their bikes; and keep a decent distance interval on 'technical sections' so you don't ram into someone else that bogs down or stops.

I bring up the rear with tools/tow strap/air/medical/radios/GPS, etc. No liability waivers signed on this ride... you're on your own (insurance).

No worries... I know what you meant...

Stiffler and Blue-8 will be on their DR650s

See you tomorrow.

I want to ride and chat with the group also, but rolling out on fast paved twisties with a shuffled group of 30ish riders with unknown skills and a diverse mix of bikes is not my idea of fun.

We could go by posers and you could wait for the rest of the group there.

I'm on a DR650 so I'll be cruising at your speed.
