backpacks dirtbikes and camping

looking to leave the truck behind just me and the boy and backpacks and fishing poles live in placerville area looking for spot to ride and camp thanx

i dont know but bump for you and your boy. He is lucky to have a dad like you and you are lucky to have son like him!

Subscribing to this thread. I'm very interested in this topic as well.

People camp and ride up at Georgetown, but I don't think there'd be anyplace to fish up there and it might be a bit more crowde than you're after. Are you looking for a place where you can ride from the truck to the camping area, or a place to camp out of your truck and then ride in the surrounding area?

ive always wanted to camp down by the deep water crossing. Park the bikes, pitch the tent, and fish rock creek either up or down from the crossing. Ive caught a few trout. Public lands for public uses i always say...

looking to leave the truck and ride and explore for a couple of days just bikes and the gear on our backs where we just find a spot and camp move on the next day

p-man. I will pm you a spot but do not post it out to the rest of the world.

Off hwy 20 you can stage near Fuller Lake and ride (mostly roads) past several lakes up to Jackson Meadow's Res. (JMR) All the lakes up there are fishable (well not all, but most). You can fish the Middel Fork of the Yuba that comes out of JMR. That road follows the Middle Fork for several miles all the way back to near Malikoff Diggins.

I think there is plenty of lakes up in the Gold Lakes basin (Hwy 89) that would be accessible for bikes.

For all you quad haters....this is where a utility quad (4X4 wtih racks) really comes into its own! I keep two of them around, so we can load up all the gear we would ever need, and camp off the quads.

      I don’t ride as often as I used to (every few months now) After dealing with ethanol laced gas turning to shit a few times (I always treat it with ethanol type fuel preservative), is there anywhere in SFV or Simi Valley or nearby that sells real fuel?
      next step will just be draining tanks before I pack the bikes away

      I'm headed down from Northern California in late April/May with my wife and our two dogs. We're just trying to have a relaxing vacation with our dogs and go around and eat at some good places / beaches etc. We were thinking LA but even as far as San Diego sounds good. Wife gave me the a-ok to bring my bike so I can sneak out out a bit to ride. Any suggestions on where to stay?

      Trying to buy an older yz125 w a green sticker. I came across a 2004 that is green sticker. Per the owner "CA used to do a lottery thing on a certain year and bike and it was the 04 125 that got the green sticker". 
      I am gonna confirm the VIN, but was wondering if it's in fact true that CA issued green stickers with a lottery system for 2003 and newer bikes?
      I tried searching and couldn't find anything. 
      Thank you all for you advice.

      I just picked up a 2018 YZ250X and need to do my break in. How gnarly is Rowher Flats after rains like we just had? I'm thinking about heading there Sunday. I moved to LA last year and I've only been there 3 or 4 times, but so far I enjoy the riding there more than most of the "day trip" locations.
      Not the biggest fan of Hungry Valley, but I imagine HV is ok despite the rain this week.
      Side note, how bad does the road in to RF get after weather like we just had?
