Dual Sport Ride in Williams Hill
on BARF Adventure Riding
back in February, 2015 ... I'd never heard of
it, and wanted to check it out ...

But first I had to get there ...



... left South of Market at 2:30pm and
missed most of the Friday traffic ...





... up and over Mt Madonna ...

Clay broke his KTM's rear hub on the
sprocket side ...



... fortunately, BARF-er OaklandF4i was there to rescue Clay in Matt's truck ...



... inspecting the karnage ...



Clay--SFMC member and father of
birthday boy AJ--on the truck of shame ...

Big "thank you" to Matt and CJ for the
rescue!

OMG. I must follow you down Mt. Madonna. This is non negotiable.




Thanks for putting up a ride report. Sounds like fun. I need to go check out Hollister sometime and romp around on the strom.

Oh, and the DOT knobby-slick has been replaced with a more DS worthy Anakee 2.

Hey TWT,

Non-negotiable Summit Road raid sounds rad!

I enjoy camping at Hollister Hills with my
dirt-bike pals ... they eat better than me ...

The DL with Anakee 2s should be fun on some
of the Hollister trails ...

see you around
the campfire,
-- SFMCjohn

Yes, we've been having a birthday ride at Hollister since AJ was
eight or so ... I'll have to look for an old pic ...

There's a KTM joke here somewhere about Clay's
KTM hub, but I guess I'm too much of a
KLR gentleman to think of one ...

hope to see you at
Cow Mtn on June 11th,
-- John A.
