Hope ur rite.... Lookin forward to a ride tomorrow in Mojave
Its jacket weather but thats OK it makes me feel brave
Some serious clouds overhead now... but NO rain smell. Weird.
Not a drop here in Apple Valley overnight. Waiting for the sun to come up a bit more to see if the foothills got a dustimg of snow.
My son is planning to come home from school tonight to ride with his desert racing buddies tomorrow. He's going to be bummed when I give him the no wet dirt report.
Request permission to lurk...y'all are in my old stompin grounds..fond memories
All is good In the High Desert today. A friend of mine stopped by my place late this afternoon. He had just finished up a 70 mile ride in the nearby foothills.
Hadnt rained a drop at my house but 15 miles south and 2000 ft higher my buddies had dust free perfect conditions. Probably one more day of chocolate cake,then rising temps and wind will dry it out till the next storm forecast for late next week.
Was very dry in the valley today... but the winds kept the dust out of the way. And the clear skys and cool temps made for great riding.
$22 for a burger and a pitcher at the end of the ride was the worst part of the day. Next time it's the party barn at Slash-JEFF ! Food is better... we got tater-tots on demand... service is faster... and it's FREE !
My son and his buddy rode the local hills, had wet dirt all day trails beginning about 20 minutes from the house They got some snow a little higher up but just a couple inches.
Got to see vid of a trail my son and I checked out last summer we named "Romaniacs". My son and I turned around after 3-4 miles when we rode it but they pushed on yesterday and found the outlet. It lived up to the name. My son suggests that old folks like me do the trail as a downhill ride due to the brutal steps here and there:eek1.
A couple vids of the easy trails. This is where my son learned to ride offroad.
Can't wait for this knee to heal and get back to riding.
Let's see the video of your Romaniacs trail, you've peaked my interest.
I'll talk to my son later today, see if he can post it up.
We are still interested in seeing the Romaniacs video if you have it, would like to see those step ups. The harder the trail the more i like it.
Where are the whoops...
High Desert Romaniacs trail.
The kid on the Honda having a bit less trouble than my son is one hell of a rider. He's a consistent top five overall finisher at District 37 Hare and Hounds.
Great vid... It's always fun when ur riding buddy stands there with a huge smile with his helmet off waiting for u to clean a section... Lol.
The kid on the Honda might be a better rider than your son, but he's still a hell of a good rider himself. That was some crazy fun ridin'.
My son does fine, he loves to trailride and race offroad. He raced nine races in District 37 this year. Got 4 250 B class wins in Enduro/Qualifiers. Was Overall B rider at the VCMC 2 Day Qualifer, he was stoked!
Now back to High Desert Plated Rides!
yea, that trail will give u a workout! what u cant see int the video is that they are constantly climbing, there is no rest spots once started up
we found that trail back when i rode with the TT guys 4-5 yrs ago! always thought it was one of ur secret trails, used to be a banner right after the tree root/rock to direct you, now we need to continue it after it crests @ the road, cause that rode SUCKS to ride back down or up:eek1
THAT was the hill that made me change to evans coolant! NEVER boiled over AGAIN
Have you guys ridden "URF canyon" or "Royal flush" near Wagon Wheel? That is some Romaniacs stuff! I've done both on my big bike (not knowing what I was getting myself into) and they are ass-kickers, I'll be giving both trails a go this weekend on the Gasser 300 if anyone is up for the punishment!
and how about some pictures of pictures of URF canyon?
Does URF stand for UR Fucked!
Only if your going up.... going down is eazy just push the bike over the edge
