I do the same and then hit trails under the canopy of the Mendocino Forest.
Sweet mid week and we never see another person.
I wanna ride the mendo canopy!
I miss Nor Cal! I used to live in Petaluma but that was before I rode dirt bikes. I have rode Cow Mt. a couple times in the summer. Talked about rutted out and HOT! Fun though. It wsa many years ago and we'd swim in the reservior down the road from the staging area
