Cool Fresno CA area - Plans, rides and meetups

I'm moving to sunny Central California in a couple of months and I want to make sure there are troopers riding around. I didn't find any Fresno area "official" thread so I'm starting this one.

I'm eager to ride the Sierra Nevada and have some good adventures there.

If you live in the area or are riding through central Cali and you feel like posting your travel plans, riding along with other troopers or just sharing your experiences, this is the place to do it

Hope to get to know all of you soon.

Proper motorcycle training is like wearing a helmet. You can ride for 30 years without one and make a case that you've never needed it. Until you do but then it's too late to make that decision.

I've ridden a bit of the Sierras . You'll be busy getting to all the good spots. There a lotta fun to be had there.
I'm further south in the LA Pit but I get through the Central Valley occasionally.

I've done the 49 from Coarsegold to the end on hwy89 up north.
It's a great road. Varies from 2 lanes through little gold mining towns to 4 lanes. The section above I 80 is lots of trees and forest. Downieville has a couple good eateries.
Actually there is no lack of interesting stuff and places to eat.
Hit up the Auto Club for maps and have fun.

Just got installed in my new home in Clovis, just 5 miles west of the Sierra.
So, who's around?

Yo, Dude, you're posting in California but you got a picture from Chalk Creek, Ut. as your avatar. What gives.
Glad you made it safely to your new digs. Take care of the wife and kid. Buena Suerte, mi amigo

hot springs

from Clovis head up to the Mono Hot Springs area, over the Kaiser Pass beyond Hwy 168. Public and private camping, riverside hot springs (and up the west hillside). Or go up to Blayney Hot Springs in Fall (when you can safely walk across the river). Nice roads east of you.
