    Doing a desert ride on Saturday 10/13, either from my house in Apple Valley or nearby. Destination undecided at this point but it will be something fun.

    You guys rock!!!!

    Here in NC, it is really hard to find a road which is not paved. I fly over the Mojave often and when I look out the plane window, I drool over the miles and miles of nothing, with trail lines parting the lands.

    Which way you headed ? I am supposed to be in Stoddard off SWR 3 miles in from Dale Evans. My group is not stepping up yet this season so I expect a boring turnout. I hate to cancel the dates but no one could fault me for disappearing Sat morning and getting lost in the desert with Glenn. :lol3

    Riding from home.

    Probably head northwest through Oro Grande, Helendale, and out to Shadow Mtn area as far west as Hi Vista north of Lake LA. Fuel at Silverlakes/Helendale.

    Ride has everything, including lots of singletrack west of 395. Nothing technical, just fun flowing type riding. There will be sand and sand washes. Powerline roads and some pavement will also be included.

    The route is not set in stone, but weather looks to be great for anywhere in the desert.

    My son came home from school last night for a couple days. We're heading out mid morning for Ridgecrest so he can race the Viewfinders Classic Scrambles. Gonna be and awesome day.

    Lots of race trips for us this month, 21st up to Red Mountain for the Ghost Rider Enduro, and the 28th in Lucerne for the 100's MC National Hare and Hound. I aint racin, I'm the team manager, crew chief, and cash flow guy!!
    Thank god my son has been fortunate to pick up some good sponsors for 2013 to help with his race budget.

    When the weather really cools off anyone want to ride the old Barstow to Vegas race course from I-15 and Minneola to Rasor Rd for gas, then back to Barstow via Afton Canyon? I'll blow you away with the route I have out there.

    Can anybody give some advice to a newly relocated east coast gs rider on where to ride some two track around palm springs area? Nothing too difficult for a 500 pound dirt bike to handle.

    EDIT: Glenn I have too many guys coming to my Stoddard gig Saturday to bring along... or leave in the lurch. I gotta pass on your ride and play Julie Cruise director at mine.

    Maybe we can still make something happen Dec 1-2 or 7-9.

    Soon I hope Mr Mutt !

    No worries, have a great weekend!

    I'm having knee surgery on 10/30 ( another scoping. clean up torn miniscus), buying time before knee repacement.My ortho doc of 20 years told me 2-3 more years max and I have to get the new one. More than likely back to light dualsport riding by Thanksgiving weekend.
