That was a bit too close. Good thing the brakes worked.

Not trying to cause any trouble here just an informational post so "don't taze me bro".

I just heard from Craig. His temp ban here has been made perm, so he won't be chiming in.

Started the first part of this route today, didn't get very far. (Almost to top of Palomar) It was getting worse up ahead, combined with lack of mud skills and being alone, I turned around..

Can't wait to get out to the area with you guys. Just scanned through this thread and it looks awesome! I'm transferring to SD in July and am currently riding a KLR but may be on an F800 by the time I get there.

I'd keep the KLR for when the 800 is in the shop

On big bike im average rider, when the dirt rode get open I can ride little faster
On my 530 Im little more then average rider I can ride fast on tight single tracks or open desert
Can tell you've been doing this awhile - you know how to pick your lines with that bike....smooth. Enjoyed watching your video!

Are you in the San Diego area? Look for the "On-Goign Hijinks" thread. We're doing this again May 5-6.

You can also check out San Diego Adventure Riders, HERE.
