    My THE first dirt bike down experience to share.

    Today, I went for a weekend day riding for Santa Ynez Mountains trails which is located just behind Santa Barbara, California.
    This forest service road (5N12) has amazing sceneris around it.
    All the types of bike could enjoy this road, Dirt, Street, Dual, or even with small cages.
    Seeing south for the Pacific Ocean view.
    Seeing north for the Los Padres National Forest mountains vista.

    O.K. for my story.
    When I was riding down paved road for an hour, I found a good/small dirt bike play ground by the road.
    And couple of dirt bikers are playing at there.
    As I was little bored at the pavement, I dare to get down the play ground for quick riding.
    There were no gate to go down or up, just couple of small side dirt mound path for it.

    Yes, I did some happy quick riding; however lost how/where to go up to the road back... ha ha ha
    In 3 months of dirt life, I finally got a down; fortunately no damage at all.
    None for the bike neither for me.

    The other dirt rider helped me out of the trouble, and told me that I went to wrong path to go up.
    Anyway, thanks for them who also from Los Angeles; sorry forgot your name. ^^;

    Here is the stroy video clips.

    Thanks for opening our eyes to that nice riding spot above Santa Barbara. I like your style of report showing clips, I bet it becomes very popular. Does your dog hang out in the car all day?

    Oooops...
    The Mr. Patrick wasn't me....
    I met him the spot where I parked the my van.
    He was camping at the Little Caliente Springs then.
    He told me lots of his interesting adventure stories.... yukon Ape Man and Indians ...etc.
    And the dog was his, he told me that he got the dog couple of weeks ago on the road.
    He (the dog) was sick and being given the shots for cure; the dog looks very charm though.

    Thanks for the comments.
