I took a quick look at the 2009 sheetiron tracks posted above and it is essentially the same route I took on my KTM990 during the 2018 Sheetiron. The only difference is I took an easier route through Stonyford to avoid going up Potato Hill, which can be quite the challenge on a big bike. The easiest route through there is to just stay on Letts Valley road, though I took a slightly harder route. This route also includes the Beer Creek crossing, which can be tough depending on water level, though I read somewhere its pretty low this year and should be a trickle by the fall.

Hey all!

I just had to create a new profile here. I originally joined back when I bought my '04 Hayabusa (screen name was Hi Busa) but haven't been back in years. Since then, that profile has been scrubbed, hence the new one.

Watching this thread too as I'm looking at planning rides to do this year. I did some of this on my 950 a few years ago but we mainly were on M1 to Mendo National Forrest. I want a little more challenge on my 690.

Looking for new riding partners as my usual buddy is having a knee replaced and will be out for the year.

Hey thanks! I'm way behind. I'm still editing for a trip out to Moab back in November!
