    Looking forward to first Tdub ride in Cache creek (a few miles away from Woodland, CA) tonite. Went on a country road ride last night (42 miles) and happened to go by creek and looked down and its finally dry! I've been riding quads and my TTR 225 down there for years so looking forward to comparing the Tdub to the TTR. That big fat tire should make it easier in the gravel and sand. Will bring camera.

    What's the suggested tire pressure for sand and gravel? I was thinking 12 psi, I like 15 on dirt.

    At the risk of sounding like a jerk, I'd be inclined to say "ain't no type of sticker going to get you a ride in Sutter Buttes". This place is VERY unique, and I had to make an 'appointment' and pay money to hike there. The place is magical and wrapped up in 'land trusts' tighter than a drum.....



    If you guys are interested in an adventure, I think we have a few more weeks to do something West, around Stonyford/Elk Creek. LOTS of dirt roads, but the short days and cooler temps are not far behind. I have been there a couple of times and very much enjoyed the adventure, but have no interest in leading one. If you can take care of yourself and want to explore with another 'like minded individual' send me a P.M... Gerry
    Take care my Friend.........

    Gerry, I'd like to ride with you.., maybe we could trade vacations, you come stay ride here, (we have a guest house) and then we'll come down your way . . . .



    I run my front tire at 12 and the rear at 10ish, my tire gauge isn't very accurate at lower pressures.

    While we have some sand, it's mostly rock and dirt.

    Stonyford is very cool. I've been there with my quads and ttr dirtbike about 6 times. Stony is huge and u can easily get lost or run out of fuel if ur not carefull. Getting the nice map at the ranger station before u go in is a must. I have a few in my truck in case they are out of them. Rode Cache creek friday nite and pretty much the same as the TTR 225. I'll stick to my old honda 3 wheeler or quads in the creek, much more fun.
