Southern California rides with the kids, post them up here...

Searched but didn't find a similar thread. My boys are at the point now where we take extended weekend trips to the local mountains and deserts. It's a total blast to be riding next to my kid, hearing that two stroke screaming away, knowing we're making great memories. I'm sure there's plenty of other local (southern california) folks out there with kids ripping it up on PW50's, CR80's, and KTM 85's. I would love to see what every one else around here is up to. I'll start.

In an effort to get in as much local mountain riding before it's all snow covered, we headed back up for the weekend. I scheduled all my meetings and appointments for Friday morning so I could grab the 13yr old after school and make tracks, hopefully before the crushing defeat of the eastbound 91 freeway.

Woke up to 29 degrees and some leftover snow from the recent storm and didn't feel like freezing our asses off that morning. We headed down the backside to try and find some lonely desert away from all the toy haulers.

I would say at this point he is mostly used to wearing the new brace:




Mission accomplished. Amazing weather and empty tracks:




The winds get insane in that part of the valley around mid-day, so we changed route and headed over to Slash X Ranch for lunch. It was his first time there. It's still the same weird place. Everything from kids on quads, scores of dirt bikes, trophy trucks, and the sound of two strokes coming in from every direction, it's a total circus. He loved it:




Quick game before we need to head back up:




Got a later start today in hopes of riding nearby and in warmer temps. 3N03:




Bushed:




3N03 headed towards 2N02 and Burns Canyon:




Ripped around back there until late afternoon, packed up then left for home (school night):



It's fun to watch them progress and get more confident. I'm guessing in a few years it'll me chasing them.
