Hey, I am brand new to Northern California and getting back dirt biking. I inherited a 2003 DRZ 400, nephew's tragic death left me the bike. I have been lurking for a month or so and am interested knowing when is the riding season in Northern California? Summer seems to be to hot/dusty and winter to cold and wet/snowy (hopefully). When do you guys go riding? When does the snow melt and the trails open up? When is it to hot and dusty to ride? I am sure there is riding all year in the area, but I am talking about the Sierra's.
