If you have access to the Butler Northern California Motorcycle Map, check out Ride 13. With Yreka as a base camp, you could head South on Highway 3 or take the Gazelle-Callahan Road to Callahan. From there, I took the Ceciville Road, which is a sport bike route until you reach Cecilville. From there, it is a one lane shelf road with blind corners and drop offs of up to 300 feet. This road follows the South Fork of the Salmon River. When the road met the North Fork of the Salmon River, I turned right onto Sawyers Bar Road which follows the North Fork of the Salmon River, then back to Etna, Ca. On this road, you pass through Sawyers Bar, which was an old mining town in the 1850’s. The whole loop back to Yreka was ~150 miles and took 4 hours. The two roads are also listed as Paved Mountain Trails (PMT).

@Jw Johnson I couldn't agree more! Yesterday I went for a little unplanned ride and ended up in Largs (great little village in west coast of Scotland) which is just 29 miles away from my home. The weather was great, lots of bikers were there for a nice chat too! Great time spending coupe of hours of your evening after dinner.

Light bike day. 140 miles of beautiful gravel and dirt.

One of the [sketchiest] Bridges of Madison County Iowa. Unmaintained county road...I lost count of how many boards were loose.
:whistle:
