Question CA weekend ride

*****DATES: FRIDAY 5/17/2013 - MONDAY 5/20/2013*****
*****IT'S A GO GENTLEMEN*****

Rooms are $85 a night and they have both single king or two queen rooms available. OAKHURST LODGE www.oakhurstlodge.com.....The reservation number is 1-800-655-6343 or 559-683-4417 you will either need to speak with Jules Allen (gerneral manager) or tell them that you are with the RoadGlide.org group......the hotel has 60 rooms and we have 30 reserved for us, half the hotel


Tossing around the idea of putting together a Weekend (3 or 4 day) trip for the guys/gals out here in CA in the spring/early summer. If there's enough interest, I don't have a problem doing all the leg work maybe with the help of cough, cough.........RichieRich.......cough, cough. That's right buddy, I just volunteered you

Obvious it's aways away, so there really are no details of yet, just ideas........ Timing would be dependent on the winter we have. Depending on who's going and where the bulk is coming from, it could be a Friday-Monday deal which would leave 2 full days to ride plus the 1 day to travel there, 1 day to travel back

First thing that comes to mind is staying in Sonora/Jamestown each night and riding the Yosemite area one day and the Sierra's the next. Plus to this would be, being in the same hotel room each night and loading unloading once, ride the amount your comfortable with and being able to head backup anytime you wanted. A pretty centrally located spot within CA and if any NV people wanted to come

Second thing that comes to mind would be heading out of the Sonora/Jamestown area in the morning and riding Yosemite then the back roads up in to the Tahoe area, staying the night and riding the northern Sierras out around Lassen, hat creek and Burney Falls staying in Burney then heading home the next day. Problem I see with this is that the last day would be a long travel day for some of the SoCal folks (we would be ending east of redding)

Open to suggestion and ideas, rough dates, places to ride/stay, etc. Most of all just kinda throwing this out to the folks on the west coast that would like to get together and ride, get to know each other, maybe have a beer or two , and just have a good time. Figure if we can get even 10-15 folks from here and half of that bring someone that's not on the board (doesn't HAVE to be a RG!) we could have 20-25 bikes and a real good time with some kick ass scenery and riding

Don't need a head count, just curious if there some real interest in this idea of mine......

I think it's a great idea and will be there if the dates (whatever they end up being) work out. I favor the Sonora/Jamestown, one hotel, site. The big question is, will RichieRich have his bike by then??? Also thanks GoneBack for taking the lead on this!!

Sounds like something I would be interested in as well. I live in S. Cal but LOVE highway 49 and the passes. I have stayed in Jamestown before as the area is great.

I'm down, but since I'm active duty, I'd definitely need time to route a 4 day chit unless I could be back in San Diego Monday. If u guys don't mind a few batwings and road kings, I could get my club to go along, too. Probably 10 would show.

I'd like to try and run outta the same place ever morning, well see if it works out that way, hopefully. As for RichieRich.....lol....he gets back stateside next week and picks his bike up when he gets back I'm the first one to give him a hard time!! But, it is hard to push a bike in the sand as for the dates/timing, we'll see how the winter goes. I'm game to ride in the cold, but negative on the snow lol plus most of the roads up there are closed til the snow is gone

As long as it seems like it would be central, that general area will be the spot. Angles camp, Sonora, Jamestown....whole are is an awesome place to spend a weekend riding

Think there is a few active duty that may like to attend, including my possible.....couch, couch...help...couch, cough. When the time comes, there should be plenty of notice in advance. I can't imagine there being a problem with non road glides, well all all here to ride!

Thanks for volunteering me douchebag. Lol. Atleast you attempted to run it by me offline first; probably betweem episodes of burbon swilling.

NorCal,

Whats with the slick comments? If you have something specific to say to me click the PM button. Don't muddy up my man's post talkin out the side of your mouth.

Subscribed....excited to see where this goes. Keep it around that early summer/late Spring so it doesn't bleed into vacay we need for SW.
