Word has it you have a pretty sweet 990.
ADV Reseda wing!
Haha, I guess it's OK. Can't say much about the previous owner....just kidding! So far so good. Just wish work would slow down a bit so I get more time to ride my own damn bikes!
Looks like we've got the Reseda chapter of ADV on lock! We'll definitely have to ride some time. I'm over by Northridge hospital, what about you?
Sherman Way/Wilbur. Toast is right around the corner.
Tibial plateau fractures are no good. I had a double spiral of the TP a few years back. I walked on it with a cane for three days around the UCLA campus before going to the hospital. Herrhelmet was with me on that and saw my knee bigger than a basketball the following morning. Doc told me that at any time my femur could've crushed down thru the fractures and I would've been wheel chair bound for life. :huh. Take care of that thing and give it lots of time to heal correctly.
somewhat off topic but I figured there are a lot of riders from OC on this thread. Looking for a bmw mechanic around OC(Newport/Costa Mesa)
I know Lior's Moto Ride is in Corona but hoping to find someone closer.
(apart from Irv Seaver or Long Beach)
Busted my bike up at the DV Noobs rally and need some work done.
we're you the one up goler?
I took a spill just 2 miles from PSR. Not sure if it's my forks or bars but they aren't lined up anymore :-/
The bars are rubber mounted. Straighten them out. Double check the bolts underneath, as I have a few fun stories about breaking handlebar riser bolts.
Got out for a short ride with Sito yesterday.
Gloomy throughout the IE, but patches of blue as we climbed 1N12 from Hwy38.
Above the clouds near Thomas Hunting Grounds. (Saddleback in the far distance.)
Past Angelus Oaks and down Middle Control / Mill Creek.
Headwaters of the Santa Ana River.
Original plan was to head for Pioneer Town, but we never made it.
A local rider told us that the restaurant / bar at Seven Oaks was open. Had to stop and check it out.
Never knew this place was here. Turned out to be a pretty cool spot with really good burgers :dg
Dinner stop for future BB night ride?
Continuing on up 2N06 towards Big Bear.
We overcame a couple obstacles.
Some small patches of snow at ~8k ft.
Made our way out to Holcomb Valley via Van Dusen. Just west of the campground we saw a string a kids with a strange assortment of homemade wagons and carts. It was some sort of youth group on a 'pioneer experience' adventure. I guess they had to build a way to carry all of their stuff, then transport it from town out to the camp ares.
This last group had a crate mounted to a couple of carpet dollies. They were not having fun
Pit stop on 3N08. The burn area is starting to get some green back
I split up with Sito at 3N14. He was gonna bounce out to the hwy and over to Arrowhead to check out the homestead, while I planned to follow the jeep trails and such down to Silverwood.
The big creek crossing on 3N93 was almost totally dry
Several rock gardens provided some Enduro-Cross practice.
This one was a bit sloppy and slippery.
Gatekeeper section just before 3N16.
I zipped up to Crab Flats, then down 3N34 (Dishpan) to Deep Creek.
A troop of RZR's were working their way down the rocks.
Followed 3N34 around to Pinnacles, then 2N33 and 2N37 down to Miller Cyn.
Along the way there were a couple of deep creek crossings that will likely dry up in the next few weeks.
Finished off with a few 'secret' roads behind Silverwood, then Cleghorn and Lytle Creek on the way home.
Come on up to Keysville next weekend....
Got some good stuff plotted out...
Shoot me a PM
very nice RR matt... good to see sito back on the saddle.
yeah, another big bear ride should be on the short list. combined with a night ride....let's do it.
dan, sorry to hear about your crash.
it takes a lot to bend or twist a fork. good chance you're handlbar is tweaked or like tim said, it probably got twisted at the mount. that happens on my 640 all the time. see if you could straighten up by jamming your front tire on the curb and turn the handlebar. good luck.
Dang read this a little late. I love riding in the big bear area. What day is this on.
Sat. We will be planing more of the 1 day local rides so keep an eye on this thread.
Looks like it was a nice spin around the mountain Think I get my bike back this week. Lets do this
After this weekend ill be free on Saturdays.
