Knoxville mudfest 12/2

Anyone wanna take a stroll to Knoxville tomorrow to get real dirty and real moist? Iím in Vacaville and would prefer to get up there early so we have more time for activities?

Iím on an Africa twin FYI.

Might be passing by on my 990 with some other ADV bikes but weíre slabbing it past Knoxville. Iíll toss you a tow strap.. we did a mud fest there a few years back on smaller bikes and the mud caked on so heavy that the wheels wouldnít turn.. our pics are several pages back in this thread. Check them out..

I'm not sure if that road is open since the fires. Hmm.. It's a good question. What kind of tires are you on? If i recall the real bad mud was on the Reiff road section. The Knoxville roads are pretty rocky (mostly planted and not sticking up) but there are some big mud puddles up there after a lot of rain. I might take my friends up there just to check it out, but I'm putting my DS wheels back on right now, and removing the wheels with the knobbies on them for this ride so I'm not gonna want to get too dirty...

I’ll be on TKC80s. I should be up there around 10am tomorrow. If all else fails on dualsport tires, throw me that tow strap and we’ll get you out

Haha! Thanks, I might need it... We will be passing through a bit later than that if we go that way. It's gonna be cold!

Dunno yet. We haven't agreed on a direction out of SF yet. Probably in the AM.. I'm not sure everyone wants to go up there yet so we might end up going south.. I don't think we're leaving SF until around 10:30 or 11am

Oh, and the mud fest I was talking about earlier was from the old ADV ride thread.

Well, wasn’t nearly as muddy as I anticipated. Did find one trail that the “mudrigs” must be using that was fun and challenging on a 500lb bike. Other than that there were plenty of deep ponds to ride through! Tried to post a picture from my phone but don’t know how to resize on said phone.

It’s also notable how no one is on the road. Cars not motorcycles. I saw more cars on Knoxville road then anywhere else, yet no one rides?!

Doesn't look too bad. I was overruled and we rode Marin, out to Pt Reyes...
