    Yaron says rides do not originate out of SBR any longer, but I will post this anyway in hopes of changing that and. I don't belong to the elite group on Facebook.:nerd

    As the title says we will head north, Cali coast-Oregon- Washington -Idaho and home. We may get it all...or not depending on roads we take, conditions-or unforeseen circumstance. You are welcome to join for a day, a few days, or the whole journey. Up to you.

    Road choices are not set in stone as we plan to investigate some new to us if possible.

    To do this ride:

    1. Be flexible. As mentioned we will not always know where we are going. :laughing A nights destination point will be about all you get. GPS tracks may not be supplied (I don't use em') but someone else here may put some together in the future. We'll see. :ride

    2. Be skilled. Pace is not what you are worried about as you are confident enough to "Ride your own ride" and be on your own if you want to stop/sight see etc.

    3. Have a motorcycle in top condition including a new set of tires.

    More will be added here as we get closer to ride date.:thumbup

    Crap - I am not elite either. Before your post I did not know that I was not elite. Now that I know I am depressed.

    Maybe I'll ride up to NorCal then turn around - lots of goofy roads just inland of Hiway1. SCAGGS!

    Not being a faceplace'r I guess I am not in the elite and don't know what's going on.

    And, this (new to me) mini ADV bike wouldn't even be up for your ride. :laughing

    It took me a long time but I finally succumbed to the pressure and got on FB. You cry babies have choices it is up to you either get on FB or quit your bitching.
