Take Berdoo Canyon. I rode it solo the first time. Kind of real cool taking lunch under the shade of a J-Tree, smoking a J, in J-Park.

Some friends and I are talking about riding to the Old Dale Road area soon. May take Thermal Canyon to Pinkham Canyon to get there. I'm heading to Baja next week so it will be after that

Come on fuckers..... Nobody wants to ride with me because my bike is too old or what??

Shit, I'll ride with a old guy on a new bike, and I'll be the young guy on the old bike.

I went out there on Saturday. Entered through the west entrance and exited out at Cottonwood. Fantastic weather. Some wildflowers. Lots of European tourists.

edit: just saw your location. You are probably already aware of the weather

Joshua Tree, Big Bear Lake etc Looking for folks to ride with

Hi,

I am in Morongo Canyon for 2 weeks, looking for peeps in the area to ride with. I have been touring on my bike for 7 weeks and just rented a place for 2 weeks to have a base and not be packing and unpacking every day. I'm taking my Jesses off and looking for someone or someone's to do some off road riding with. I'm on a BMW F700GS, have ridden for years and am getting accustomed to a bigger bike offroad. Any interest in connecting, send me a message and we can set something up.

Cheers,
Phoenix

Big bikes are excellent in the desert. Lot's of area to open up a big thumper. I know some cool trails and riding areas, maybe we can find some new stuff too.

The wife works Thurs, Fri, and Sat which means I can ride. If you want to set something up for next week, let's do it. After that, I'm heading north.

Maybe Pioneer Town up to Big Bear? Getting warm down here in the low desert.

Today was warm as fuck!

We need to get going before it gets too hot!!


BTW, the heat does not bug me, but a few people I went riding with before couldn't take it.

I've never been to Pappy and Harriet's. It's sad because I've lived out here my whole life. My brother was just there Thursday, he said the house band is pretty good and the show was excellent overall.

Hopefully my wiring harness comes in today or tomorrow, I just did the last repair to my engine and I'm going to put new tires on tonight or tomorrow. This old XL will be ready to keep up with ya'lls newer bikes Just an FYI, I don't have the 5Gal tank on it right now, I need to get a new petcock for it. I don't have my normal 260 mile range ATM, with the stock tank it's like 110 miles.
