I'm planning a trip to nor cal for about 4 days of riding and am looking for suggestions or recommendations.
I am trailering down and going to spend 2 days riding from Redding.
After that I am unsure where to go next,I was thinking about Ukia for a couple of days but have never been there.
So the sunny weather got me iching for a new bike. Not sure if it will happen this year, most likely next.

I've ridden through Packwood a few times in the past and thought it would be a good stop point for the night. All the motels are pretty basic so perfect for a quick stop. Has anyone stayed here and is there a decent restaurant and motel, walking distance apart?

My wife and I have committed our riding to the Adventure Tour side of the riding spectrum. After too many bikes to list and types of riding to count we have settled in nicely to the road ahead on a (her) Vstrom 1000 and (me)Super Tenere. All that is left to decide is our maiden voyage, (this is...
