Default KLR Cache - You Find It First, You Keep It

While out on my July 4th ride in California's Sierras (RR here), I hid a small cache of KLR themed stuff. If you are the first to ride to it and find it, you get to keep it.

If you find it, please post, PM or email that it has been found!

Cache:
2 reflective stickers (1 is a Zombie sticker) and two other little KLR trinkets

Location:
Stanislaus National Forest, California
N 37.7445278 , W 120.0329679

Description of Location: It is at the end of a small mountain paved road (no dirt or gravel riding required for this one). The cache is less than two feet off the road and should be easy to find (see pictures and hint below). From the cache location you have many options for riding
1) head up a dirt track to Yosemite
2) choose the other dirt road fork and ride to Bryceburg
3) back track a little and take paved stuff to Yosemite or other cool places in the area.

What's Close:
Yosemite, Cherry Lake, Tuolumne River, Mariposa, Hetch Hetchy, Sonora, Indian Casinos, etc.

Good Riding:
Tioga Pass, Sonora Pass, HWY49 (Little Dragon), HWY140 and tons of nice backroads
And literally hundreds of gravel, dirt & fire roads.

Why Did I Place This Cache:
Geocaching by KLR seemed like fun and I spent 3 days riding in the sierras and never saw another dual sport (let alone a KLR) - thought this might be a way to get you to ride here.

Hint: Pay attention to the yellow signs, they MAY be important

Very cool idea. I am going riding tomorrow but not likely to make it far enough to cash in on the offer but if I lived in Cali I would be after them. Anyone in CO want to leave some stickers for me to go get?

This is a great idea, well done KLRfoto, come on guys lets get this rolling. Just a pity I'm working in Saudi at the moment, my home is in the UK and my KLR is a bit crash scarred at the moment

Aw Ra Best

What a great idea. I've been geocaching for ten years and its time I put out a few that were "KLR Accessible".

Maybe a $20 Tim's card for the FTF.
