EZ, I must have missed something - you're racing the Baja?
Yup,... Gonna go give it our best shot!
Check us out here:
Thanks Eric - keep us posted on the pre-race activities.
What is near Chandler/Gilbert for a Noob to get off the pavement for some basic trail riding?
New to the forum and new to the dirt for that matter. Getting on a couple of fire roads on my V-Strom made me think I need to develop some basic off road skills. I bought a 96 DR350SE in decent shape and I just need somewhere to get her dusty without breaking any laws or tresspassing.
I feel like the best piece of advice would be a list of inmates NOT to follow
Apache Trail/4 Peaks is the usual destination to start with, there are a couple FB/Meetup groups that post beginner friendly rides, that's how I mostly got started..
Get yourself a Bulldog Canyon permit and do some exploring at your own pace. The entrances off Apache Trail ( Wolverine and AA Pit) have nice areas to practice. Sometimes you will have to deal with other ATVs in the space but it's not too bad. That is where I go for a quick dirt fix when I have limited time.
Speaking of beginner friendly rides, we have a couple people going out to Sheep Bridge tomorrow... I've done enough tough shit in the last couple weeks so it will be just mostly cruising. Mostly.
Btw I don't want to spam here with the videos that I edit so I created a separate thread... come on over, bring some popcorn.
Are the plastic desert tanks street legal? How likely are they to cause a problem with police in AZ and maybe a couple of CA visits?
I am looking at the Acerbis for my DR350SE. The barely over 2 gallon stock tank is a little limiting.
This is the first time I have ever heard anyone say plastic thanks are an issue.
I think we all have oversized plastic tanks.
I think the only time a tank could be an issue in AZ is if you drove one down the hwy and even then it would probably still be legal.
Well if it's a Sherman tank maybe. You can't trust those Europeans.
Same.....never heard of this even being an issue/legally.
AZCircus (et al).... do you have any incidents/references on this? I use mine sometimes and def want to stay on the right side of the law....or whatever the issue is. Thx.
No I read something about them being Off Highway Only in some old post somewhere and immediately assumed the sky was falling.
I believe it must not be true or at least mostly overlooked.
I picked up a second DR350 this morning that already has a larger tank installed so that the wife and I can both get dirty. Until someone cites me I am going to go about my business. As far as I know it is legal anyway.
Thanks for the replies.
