The guttural thrum of an engine stirs the leaves of an oak tree. Over the crest of a rolling hill, motorcycles with goldenrod appear. Miles behind the riders, along blacktop shimmering in the sun’s warmth, Motherlode Motorsports equips patrons with rides, helmets, gas, and experienced guidance. Riders do not need a California motorcycle license to pilot the three-wheeled bikes, giving first-timers the chance to jump right on and glide along the gently ascending hills of Gold Country to San Andreas or up to the nearby Stanislaus National Forest.
Motherlode Motorsports also connects road warriors with an inventory of speedsters from Yamaha, KTM, Suzuki, and Honda, as well as gear from Fox Racing and other brands. Staff experts can offer advice on where to ride as well as tips on survival when confronting a feral camshaft and its cubs in the woods.
