What we're about
Based in Sonoma Valley (or willing to meet for social events / ride starting points in SV)? This group is for Adventure Motorcycle riders who are interested in getting together for socials, day rides, evening rides and perhaps the occasional overnight ride. We live in a fantastic part of the world that has so many great rides to choose from - so let's get together and explore all the back-country roads and tracks!
This is a new group and the idea is to see if there is interest / get together and see what we want to do. Any Adventure bikes are welcome - any size, any era. BMW R1200GS, F800GS, Triumph Explorers, Honda Africa Twins, KLRs, Susuki V-Strom etc. Due to the roads / tracks we will be riding, this group is not suitable for Cruisers, Touring bikes, Sports Bikes, etc.
Bias will be towards smaller group rides (4-6 riders) on a mix of back-country roads including very rough paved / semi-paved roads and, if there is interest, some fire-roads etc. This is not about "extreme" or fast adventure riding - it is all about enjoying our bikes, the rides and what Northern CA has to offer. Riders do not need to be "experts" but should be comfortable on the roads mentioned.
We only have a few rules: Safety, Courtesy and Respect. Safety for yourself and your fellow riders. Courtesy for your fellow riders, other vehicles on the road and the people we encounter. Respect for everyone we meet. You never know who your next friend will be. And, most of all, to have fun!
