    Going to a 914 show and swap meet this sunday morning.
    Might hit some mountain roads afterwards, but that will be on four wheels :evil

    Trying to keep the following saturday (4/15) open for a possible Big Bear ride.

    Same. Johnny has been an old friend from my observed trials days. He's having to re-learn how to walk after a bike crash and broken neck. He has also been involved in EnduroCross since it's inception.

    Thinking that this Sunday would be a great day to ride, but not really sure where what with all the snow and washouts and fires. Any ideas? Feel free to join.

    Hiya Glen :wave

    I think lots of stuff washed out and still closed between Lytle Creek and Cajon Wash.
    Big Bear was really nice two weekends ago, but some roads were closed for snow.

    Heading to WARPED this weekend, so have fun wherever you end up :ricky

    Hey Mat! Ah yes - the annual slovenly gathering of drunken, stoned motorcyclists that snore in unison. I'd join in the fun if I had the whole weekend off! Think Big Bear's snow is cleared yet?

    Let's ride soon. Baja's calling!

    Mike - Tentatively aiming for an easy putt with dad on saturday. Probly just local.
    I can check to see if he has permission to ride sunday (Mother's Day!) instead.

    Hi Matt!

    Before you put Mothers Day at risk, I'm a 50/50 for being able to ride Sunday myself.

    Anyone been in the Lytle Creek / Applewhite area lately? I haven't been up there for a couple months.

    Thinking a quick breakfast run to the Evergreen via Sheep Creek. Maybe Panorama or Holcomb Ridge to burn off the biscuits & gravy...
