Though last year was a rain fest, I am up for anything that takes me to NorCal or vicinity.  Bigok

Ideas, on location and when ?

My suggestion? Quincy/Grass Valley.

Somewhere on the EAST side of the mountains.  
RENO.

Warmer and less rain,  especially a bit later in the year.

Two months after this year's WCRM I went back up with two buddies. One of them was going to attend the WCRM with me and my friend, Steve, who some of you met, but he couldn't due to a death/funeral. He had never ridden North of SF so we went back up on a different route and stayed very near Quincy. Very nice up there.

I'm in again and I'll go anywhere. I just don't want to stay in a restaurant for hours staring at rain.

Quincy could be fun- has two nice roads over the mountains to the West and at least one restaurant that might suit us, Pangaea I think it's called.
The Sierra foothills South of there are worth considering too, Arnold, Porterville, several others could work.
The problem with all of the above is that in a good snow year all of the passes will be closed well into June.

I only care about one thing as far as WCRM is concerned this year.  It can't be Memorial Day Weekend.

Other than that, I'm good to go.

I enjoyed Quincy when we had our .5 there some years back.  I'd have no problems returning to the area.  I have a different bike and riding suit now, so it's likely I wouldn't be easily recognized.    Thumbsup

Has anyone considered Willits, CA. for the rally? I have attended a rally there using the KOA in Willits. Hwy20 from Willits to Fort Bragg is an incredible ride. Then PCH up to Leggett and into the Redwoods is a great ride.

The drive through tree, Leggett, CA.

20 is an awesome road indeed. But late May and early June do not have a stellar history weatherwise. Willits is over the coastal mountains, and I recall shedding layers on one of my rides out there from a chilly, misty Ft Bragg.

Anywhere we can get to without being snowed upon multiple times or requires the building of an Ark (save the sport-tourers two-by-two). Quincy looks fantastic but it would have to be much later than 2016 WCRM. Hiking in Lassen would be a nice bonus!

For the 2017 FJ West Coast Rally, we are having it at the Coloma Resort in Coloma, CA 1-3 June. The place looks plenty large enough for a large rally. The FJ rally is expecting to have nearly 50 people. I am sure the facility could handle a rally upwards of 100 people. https://colomaresort.com/ The general location is between Auburn and Placerville.

I already have my reservations booked. I am sharing a Bunkhouse with 2 other riders and will be there 4 nights. My cost is $57.25 a night. I call that a bargain  Bigsmile Very easily could have 2 more riders join in and the cost will drop even more. Each Bunkhouse can sleep 10 and has it's own Shower/Bath.

Yes, I agree that a single person staying in one of the cabins can be pricey.

I concur with Viffergyrl. Good suggestion Jim. I rode through that area a few times over the years, and love the countryside there. The only impediment would be if the passes stay snowbound late in the year.

Quincy is a very nice 1.5 day ride for me at 900 miles. It also facilitates using 395 over my dreaded 97.
So I am very warm to anywhere in the vicinity.

Here is June actual temps for Quincy and historical averages. You can see temps rise about 2 degrees a week. So not much to separate the second to fourth week.
http://www.accuweather.com/en/us/quincy-ca/95971/june-weather/331996

As far as snow. You can see two July, two June and three May openings for Lassen since 2010. Last year opened on June 10. https://www.nps.gov/lavo/planyourvisit/winter-road-closures-and-spring-clearing-update.htm

So how about June 9, 10 and 11 for the 2017 WCRM . ?  Headscratch

That would work for me. As long as there is NO RAIN!

As to the Gold Pan, it does not fair too well on Yelp. A fair number of reviews that all complain about how dirty the place was.

The Quincy Courtyard Suites (129.00 to 169.00 a night), Pine Hill and Ranchito all seem to have a much better set of reviews. Pine hill starts at 70.00 a night, but there were a few very unfavourable reviews. Ranchito is 69.00 a night, and nothing really bad about it written up at yelp at all.

Pine Hill and Spanish Creek motels - which have pretty ok reviews- are in the West part of town fairly near Pangaea , there some other pretty well rated ones on the East side which is a bit of a walk. Google lists a couple of rv spots in town as having camping. West end is the more interesting part of town.

No I don't. Not sure where it was that we stopped but it was in the area. I will go through my receipts and try to find out where exactly it was. We have a lot of time so a good spot will get found! It doesn't look like my two buddies that I am riding with a week earlier will make this WCRM run with me. So I will be open to splitting the tent spot cost with you or more.

No I don't. Not sure where it was that we stopped but it was in the area. I will go through my receipts and try to find out where exactly it was. We have a lot of time so a good spot will get found! It doesn't look like my two buddies that I am riding with a week earlier will make this WCRM run with me. So I will be open to splitting the tent spot cost with you or more.





I sent an email to Pioneer RV Park.They are basically right in town. They said that while they do not have dedicated tent sites, they have accommodated groups of tenters before. They merely asked for an idea of the numbers. So, in case anyone wants to enjoy the balmy June weather by tenting, let's get an idea how many would go for that option.

Cheers,

Sounds good! Seems they also have a pool.

From the reply I got from them they asked how many, and they could set something up. So,how many others are willing to camp out?

Lake Tahoe has  10+ feet of snowpack, and that last week. Another 1 to 2 feet are expected by this weekend. Some of the passes may not open until July.

M.Brane and I are definitely in wait-and-see mode.

Last year (2015-2016) was supposed to be an El Nino year with all kinds of rain. That didn't happen in California. This year (2016-2017) we are on track for heavier than average rain and the snowpack is much greater than normal. Link. I have concerns that roads around Quincy may not be clear in time for the June dates suggested.

Our governor's commitment to keeping all roads clear is low. I-80 is the big money road.. and that has turned into a semi truck trailer parking lot already this year.

For even more fun, plot our wettest year (1982-83) with the trend for this year. We are currently on track for our wettest year ever.... Link.

I have no problem with Paso Robles as witnessed by the Opal Saison pictured below but it's a long haul for our friends up north. Although as luponically distorted as we all are, I won't discount crazy.

Yup. As I posted, another 2' + this weekend and longer forecast is another at the end of next weekend. This may be the nastiest weather in more than 10 or 15 years. I-80 over Donner was completely shutdown numerous times  from the Nevada border to Colfax due to snow, complete whiteout conditions, landslides and the roadworks that will continue indefinitely. That's a major interstate so who knows what the good roads are like?

Naciemento-Ferguson Rd through Fort Hunter-Liggett to the coast is fantastic. The Fort is open to the public, just have current license, registration and proof of insurance and mind your speed.

Paso Robles is just on the east side of the coastal mountain range and there are many roads to the coast.

So, I understand WCRM will be in Quincy from June 9-11 but I do not know where.

Is there a motel/hotel that is the HQ of this event? I would like to book reservations (I do not camp), so I need to know how to proceed.

Is there a CHWIC (Chief Honcho-o-What's In Charge) of this event that is planning so we can all dedicate vacation time, etc.?

Inquiring minds would like to know.

So, brass tacks time. Will this year's WCRM be Quincy, or Paso Robles.

Qunicy

Pros: Relatively central location (for those of us way up North), cheap motels, camping in town at RV Park
Cons: Large snow accumulations so far this winter may limit riding (mountain passes remaining closed)

Paso Robles

Pros: Fair weather (seasonal temps not too high), little or no snow, nice countryside
Cons: Spendy (motels are over 100 a night), Much further south, thus extending the time to travel

With those simple criteria in ind, what shall it be? The sooner we throw the bones and read the entrails,and make a decision, the sooner we can actually get organamized,

Cheers,

This is tough. I prefer Quincy and it is still early. The snow may be gone, or not. No way to tell how the weather will be in April and May. We may get warmer temps. I am camping so I don't care where I end up but the motelers need to make reservations.

There are other west coast destinations to consider:

1) Garberville. This is the "Gateway to the Redwoods" and is a great central location for magnificent rides in the coastal redwoods. A couple of nice motels there, not sure about camping but I can check.

2) Weaverville. Popular destination for the ZRXOA (ZRX Owners Association). Again, outstanding mountain roads for local blasts. Also good motels for HQ considerations.

Not sure where everyone is coming from whether these locations are convenient or not, just throwing them out there.

Nope. It took a few more Fridays for things to shake out, but now I've got an overseas work trip. It should be a cool trip, but   on the conflict. I've been waiting for a post-Memorial Day WCRM date so I could go again.

Cool! Where are you getting the seat done?

And looking at a map, there would be a nice Sat ride out from Redding:

299 to 3, 3 to 36 36 back to Red Bluff.

Seth Lamb is in Redding. I have spoken with him and can do a ride in and ride out with a new seat. Takes about 4 hours.
http://laamseats.com/

Seen his work on various bikes and he makes an awesome and reasonably priced seat.  The Triumph needs a better seat that moves me back about 1.5 inches and up about another inch.

I want one like this



The roads you mention are all Quintessential NorCal roads that I have ridden several times and a few with you. They should be unaffected by snow that time of year. 3 to 36 is a nice road too !

Sorry to be a pooh. But I think that is all the time I can afford at this time of year.  Thumbsdown  

The Trinity Center, on 3 north of Weaverville webcam is already snow free.

Just west of Weaverville on the 299 snow almost gone

Jim, that is a sweet looking saddle, and getting a custom one will definitely make it fit to a T.

And I do still have fond memories of those rides last year on the way to and from the WCRM. What a hoot! I have ridden 299 from the coast to Redding, and the portion from Redding to CA3 has some fun on it. I have not ridden on CA3 at all, but it does look like a nice road.

So, here we all are. Paso Robles looks nice, but is a big trip for some of us (notably bubba and birdrunner). I just checked the highway cameras for the I80 through from Truckee to the Donner Summit, and that road is ugly. I can only imagine how much more snow is on secondary highways right now. So, Quincy may still be a no go in June.

Some one mentioned Weaverville, and Jim is looking to head to Redding and get a new saddle. perhaps we could look at Redding or Red bluff, or for that matter Weaverville as the locus of the weekend's fun and excitement? We could set Paso Robles or a similar more southerly locale for 2017.5?

Cheers,

Kai

I agree with the weather concerns of the Sierras, especially after the winter we have had (and are still having). My worry is if we settle on someplace like Quincy and we continue to see the road/weather conditions deteriorate, we could be stuck with an unworkable WCRM.

The coastal ranges have had enormous rainfall as well and we may find some road condition issues but I'm willing to bet that we would be less at risk. Weaverville is in the heart of the mountains (junction of 299 and 3) with many, many possibilities for day rides. Not far from Redding so those riding some distance can slab drone to Redding and head west from there. It is beautiful in that neck of the woods as well.

As I mentioned earlier, I attended a ZRXOA Rally in Weaverville a few years ago (2009) and it was a kick. We did get rained on (local mountain weather, hard to predict sometimes) but it only lasted a day. The Rally was at the Weaverville Victorian Inn, a very large establishment with banquet rooms, etc. Walking distance to bars and steak houses.

Here is one pic of the gathering. This is looking towards the clubhouse from the main hotel:

Okay,Poll Time, Kids!

Vote for your preferred locale.Keepin mind some of us will have ahella long way the further south the event is chosen to be (enough that some may decide not to attend).

Here are the choices:

1. Quncy - keep in mind the heavy snowfall this season may make some roads (the really fun ones) impassible even as late as June

2. Paso Robles - great weather, spendy hotel rooms and very long distance for us Northerners

3. Weaverville - good roads, typically nice weather that time of year

Yeah, I don't remember snow being an issue that weekend.

In a weird bit of synchronicity, I was sorting through some old bike stuff this morning and at the bottom of the bin was my motel receipt from Weaverville. If you're headed back, it was Motel Trinity, 1270 Main St., 96093, 530-623-2129

1. Quincy - A great place for motorcycling and to meet for a rally. I am concerned about weather and road conditions so this is last on my list.

2. Paso Robles - Another excellent destination but farther for our northern bretheren as a destination. This alone makes it a tough choice and this is second on list.

3. Weaverville - June timeframe is attractive weatherwise although anything can happen from rain to hot weather. It comes with the territory. I'm cool with that myself, so this is first on my list.

http://i1322.photobucket.com/albums/u580/Bergmen/Motorcycling/Misc/Weaverville%20Climate_zps2nuncn3e.jpg

Not likely to have snowfall after March.

All three destinations are an easy ride from my house although Paso Robles would be farthest. I'm cool with any choice, I just want to make reservations at the hotel and lock it in.

June weather in Quincy and Weaverville will likely be just fine and the main roads will be cleared. It's the interesting little backroads that may still be blocked by snow or mudslides.

YMMV.

After looking further at the Quincy/Weaverville choices, I think we would be fine with either one. Quincy would be higher in elevation at 3450 ft. (and cooler), we would just be at some risk of road issues. By early June, things should settle out to make it work. The northern California coastal mountains are subject to heat waves, always have been and no way to predict these. They can also be subject to regional weather issues (rain) as well. It's a toss-up.

So, I'm changing my vote to Quincy/Weaverville and discouraging Paso Robles (although that would not keep me from attending).

It was a dumb weekend for me experiment with removing the bellypan part of the Guzzi's fairing. Who knew it was so effective at conducting heat away fro the riders legs? My leg actually peeled from the heat. Memorable. Never felt a swimming pool so warm either.

But still had a great ride that day out to Arcata where it was a freezing 60F.
I like Weaverville. Forks of the Salmon remains unridden by me.

So, it seems that Weaverville is a popular choice. Hopefully it will not be as warm out as the last time there. The average for June is 84 Deg F.

Shall we pull the plug and go with Weaverville? Hopefully we will hear from the voices from further south that proposed Paso Robles.

Well, while all this was going on, one of my riding groups formed up a ride to New Mexico during the same week. Their ride is scheduled and they are booking now so I'm going to change plans and ride with them, skipping WCRM for this year.

Maybe next year.

2.June 3 -5
3.June 17 - 19

Any other input? So far it would seem from the 3 replies that 10 -12 would be overall best. Anyone else have an opinion?

Also, it would be nice to also get some numbers as to how many plan to attend. I have researched the hotels in the area and the 49'er in Weaverville looks to be about the best alternative.

We should make some sort of decision asap so as to firm things up some. Also, please pipe in if you have a preferred alternate location.

Let's get this sorted this week.

So,June 10 to 12.Jim,I sure hope you can make it.

But, as I realize it, I misquoted the dates, because I seem to have a problem interpreting the calendar.It should be June 9 to 11. Silly me.

Now, where to stay?Anyone have a preference in the area?

What was the Trinity like? It seems to get a mixed bag of reviews, from great place to disaster, and a couple of people reporting bed bugs.

It was fine. Two star, old and in need of updates. But clean and comfortable. However a few years can make quite a difference to that age of premises. Good location.

It's interesting. I could leave here about 4pm on the 9th. Ride to Kennewick Wa. From there it is 575 Miles to Weaverville. Do-able. But Have no idea if I can do that n the Triumph.  Headscratch
My guess is not. But I could arrive Sunday  Lol

I did Richmond to Kettle Falls on my Triumph (practically the same as yours) in a day last year on the way to meet up with the boys in Neslon. It was a surprisingly comfortable ride.

Via Highway 20 that is about 750 km and an entertaining ride. My sits on a GT we're surprising to me as the seat to peg felt about identical to the ST. I am hoping I have tamed the ST for more distance. My knees are the issue for me. Right now the Triumph is close to the Guzzi's riding position. I have done 1100 km in a day on Guzzi coming home from Klamath Falls. The last 150 were not great.

So we shall see.

100KM on any bike is gonna have its issues, I would think. My  pain points are my upper back and left ankle. Most long rides I just suck it up, but after about 700 or so KM it does start to get unbearable.

Rates at Trinity are not too bad:

We do have nonsmoking rooms open and the rates are as follows:
A room with a queen bed is $65.00 plus tax per day
A room with a King bed is $75.00 plus tax per day
A room with two double or two queens beds is $80.00 plus tax per day.

However, he did not indicate how many rooms were available that weekend.i have sent a follow up to request that,as well as get an ide if they would block off some rooms for a short period while people here made their arrangements.

So,should we now go ahead and post a new thread with the dates June 9 to 11 for WCRM 2017?
