    I think this will be a Saturday & Sunday day ride thing. Some guys coming each day to keep things smaller.

    Anyone interested ?

    Took a little tour of Cal City area today. 150 miles... Cal City, Rands, El Pasos, Dove, Jawbone and back to Cal City. 50/50 fast stuff and fun stuff.

    Getting warmed up for Johnson Valley this weekend at Cougar Buttes again. May 4-5 2013. :clap

    I'm seem to remember this section from last year. Kali trailrider had to rescue me at about 70% from the top. John Bull isn't really that bad. I only had to do 2 months of counseling after the ride. But, I think I will pass on that section this year since I'll be on the big bike.

    Hey Aaron

    Yeah I remember that!! :lol3

    I thought that was JB at first glance too.
    But I think that is crab flats just before the campground coming from Pinnicals.
    I am doing BBTR this year... Hardways and I got the perfect place in my garage for my plaque!! :wink:

    Starting early and riding fast!!
    Maybe I will see you out there. :freaky

    Thats Dishpan in the photo.

    We'll be riding dirt bikes with plates rather than Big Bikes. Not the right trip for those. In fact, this thread is dedicated to the little bikes... if you can call a plated 500CC dirt bike little. :lol3
