How do how do ? So originally from Malibu canyon I grew up riding So Cal (Indian dunes, Red Rocks, Jaw Bone, and every hill from the valley to Thousand Oaks and from the beach to Simi Peaks). Knowing that now you go to jail for even being on a fire road in the Santa Monica mountains and Indian Dunes has been closed for many many moons I am no longer familiar with riding areas. I left SoCal about twenty years ago. While I am In L.A. many times a year for pre production or shows and know all the hangs etc I don’t know the “new” spots to ride. The thought I have is to start “Snow birding” to SoCal from Hood River, OR during the winter when I am not on tour. I have three bikes in my stable a well built XR650L capabale of climbing trees, a more than capably set up 950 Adventure and my custom Harley. I would most likely bring all three down. Thinking I would borrow a Tour bus and trailer from a friend for a week or two and enjoy some riding. That said I am looking for areas for all three styles of riding. We have all three up in Hood River to epic levels. We also have cold and white stuff that covers said epic riding in winter. After four heart attacks Intry to love as much as possible which is the basis of these soon to be annual (starting this winter) trips. So tell me if you were me (be thankful your not) where would you ride ?
