    My AT just came in and I'm looking for experienced local riders to ride with.
    Just sold my BMW GS Adventure and my XR650l with hopes of consolidation and improved usability.
    Please reach out if you're interested!
    Thanks,
    Dave

    Nice!
    Reno is close and James is a good guy. He called me Friday when their 1st one came in.
    Shoot me a note when you're coming down to pick it up and I will meet you there as long as work permits anyway.

    Got my AT last week did 300 miles in Sonoma county on sat. The Honda Feels 100lbs. Lighter than my GS and really snappy with all the traction control turned off. There is an ACT dual sport out of Boomtown on July 16-17 plan on doing as much of that ride as possible on the AT. I hope some crash bars become available by then especially for the engine that water pump housing looks quite vulnerable

    Hey Matt,
    That's perfect! I've only had time to log 165 miles so far but plan on many more.
    Do you have a link that you can post regarding that Boomtown run?
    I'd like to check it out and am happy to ride with you if you'd like.
    Touratech makes some beautiful engine and fairing guards for your AT. All stainless steel and capable of mounting additional lighting.
    Here's their link: http://www.touratech-usa.com/Search/?q=africa+twin
    So does SW Motech available through Twisted Throttle.

    Hello all. I live in Folsom and got an AT last year. I mainly ride the trails and forest roads in the foothills. I usually do day rides but also like multi-day camping trips. I would like to meet up to ride or even just to talk bikes.

    Mark with Sierra Nevada Adventures has his 1st ride of the year on March 17th. Don't know if he has space still but, definitely make time to go on one of his rides. Well worth it.
