    Snow can be avoided and probly should be...
    Jeeps gone thru most places this afternoon, re-freeze tonight, tomorrow may be ice :puke1

    :vardy in the mornin so a late start is fine. You pick the time and place :deal

    I was thinking to get up into the desert, maybe lunch at Adelita's in Lucerne Valley. Although I suppose it'll be cold getting over that way anyhow.

    Haven't been following the thread so looks like I"m going to miss riding with you guys Sunday. Would have really loved to have ridden today with you Matt. Those photos are very compelling.

    So what's this MX ride your planning. I've been really wanting to do a MX ride so if you're looking for company, let me know what the plans are and I'll work it into the schedule if I can.

    I know that bike from Big Bear Bash in 2011. Looked brand new that day. Couldn't believe it was '07. I hope you find a good home for her.

    This time I didn't even take any :hide



    So, instead i'll share a couple from a ride up San Sevine last weekend with dad.

    Hey there buddy! Looking at your pics is sure making me miss So. Cal.! I sure miss riding with you. Are you going to warped? I kind of doubt that I'll be able to make it, but maybe....Hopefully going to buy a 500 XC-W soon and make it street legal. Might even start doing some rally type stuff :D

    Hey Chris :wave
    You still in CO? I heard you were heading for NZ.

    Probly not gonna make it to WARPED this year. Current work schedule has me in India for the month of April, but experience tells me there is a better than even chance that will get pushed. All I can do is wait and see (...and make a trip to Baja in the meantime :wink:)

    Yup, still in CO, decided NZ would be too costly and risky. We like it here and it looks like I may have landed a good job. India sounds awesome! Sure wish I could join you in Baja:cry

    I'm available for a day ride this weekend if anyone wants to go. Something in the local mtns. Was also curious about the route from Big Bear to Pioneertown - slab up to Big Bear then dirt to Pi Town. I'm open.

    I think there are a couple inmates that need to break in their new toys.
    I think there are also a couple inmates that need to dust off their old toys.

    Tell me what you want to ride :ear
    Usual stuff up thru the Cajon Pass? Single-trak on Baldy Mesa? Woodsy trails behind Lake Silverwood?

    Love the idea of single track and technical riding. Need to work on my turning skills too.
