Other than the Ye Ole Land of Asses and and "other", the poll choices are all west of the I-5 corridor. The Sierras was mentioned several times in the other thread. And I just have to point out that Baker City was an awesome location. Something else along those lines would be my preference (small out of the way town with cheap biker friendly motels, good food, beer, amazing roads, dualsport options, and a nice change of scenery).

I'd like to point out that all the choices are WTF up I-5 from those of us here in SoCal, pretty much guaranteeing we won't attend.  May as well go ahead and have the damned thing in Tacoma, while you are at it...  At least the Puget Sounders will represent.

Tahoe's great, but traffic-y.  If there was no one on the roads, it would be heaven, but instead it's more like driving in Hawaii.

Alturas is surrounded by straight roads.  Dual-sport might be OK.

Susanville is better and there is a kick-ass road just south of Susanville, up the Janesville Grade and winding eventually to Greenville.

Quincy might rock.  Great roads--how about taking Cal 70 early in the morning before Mr. and Mrs. Winnebago wake up and then looping back up the fabled Oroville-Quincy highway?  It might actually be too small; there was one cool restaurant perfect for a bunch of Gore-tex clad bike hooligans but it closed last spring.  It would be relative cheap, scenic as hell and out of the way.

But Auburn.  Now there's a thought.  Small town, but with a little historic district where I bet you can get both a decent beer and a decent double espresso (this is an important prerequisite for XLR8 and myself).  Warm in September.  On I-5, but surrounded by great roads...Highway 49 through Downieville, Mosquito Ridge, 193 to Placerville...I've always wanted to ride down around Twain Harte and check that out.

Geez, we meet up at Auburn and Miles will have no excuse.  I'd expect to see his face there.   Bigsmile Thumbsup

Any thoughts?  What say ye?

Hmmm. Nice location. Looks like some lovely roads in the area... a contender, I'd say  Thumbsup

EDITED to add: Nice list of restaurants and "stuff" http://www.auburn-ca.com/restaurants.html

And of course, the Official Wikipedia info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auburn,_California

I love to ride.  I don't necessarily love to ride huge amounts of I-5 for a weekend, though...


If it's Auburn, there I am.

Colleen, have you spent any time in the Sierras?  If not, well, that's another reason to go riding there.  

I'm going to go break out my copy of Destination Highways--Northern Cal.  And see what I see.   Thumbsup
