Coarsegold, Ca, USA
April 27-29 will be coming up sooner than you can believe so mark your calendar. I haven't gotten around to speak to the innkeeper at the Comfort Inn but I will in just a few days. For any new riders to this event it's held in Oakhurst, Ca. The Central California foothill riding is not to be missed. Come meet new friends that know the area for the best experience. In past years Yosemite National Park has had "FREE" days for us. And it's only 13 miles from the motel. Past riders have come from as far away as Austin, Tx, Washington, Utah. Come put your mark on the map. More info to follow. Anyone with pics of your past rides please post.

Is that Highway 49 between Mariposa and Coulterville?


Don't fix it if it ain't broke, don't break it if you can't fix it.

I don't believe so. Joe probably has a better idea of what the road is. I just remember it being a lot of fun to ride...

I looked at it and said it was Old Priest Grade Road. But what do I know.

Old Priest Grade Road should be called the automatic transmission killer.


Don't fix it if it ain't broke, don't break it if you can't fix it.

If you are planning to attend, make sure your health insurance is up to date. Make Cornelius ride in the back. And take a satellite phone to call the ambulance because service is real spotty. No need to thank me, happy to help.

I can't wait to get on Granite Rd again, and hopefully there will have been rain in Feb and Mar. When the foothills are green it is just so BEAUTIFUL. Frankly I'm not optimistic though, seeing as how it is 74º today, and will be 77º tomorrow. I see more firestorms next year. damn.

One of the nice features riding up that way in the spring is the smell of the orange blossoms, if the time is right.
If I go, I won't be going that way.
