    Hey hows it going? I live in Maui and will be coming to San Deigo on Oct 19th-28th. Will be heading up to Long Beach for my friends wedding on the 20th and then just traveling around the LA/Santa Barbara/San Diego area for the next week. I ride extensively here in Maui and Northern Cal and Mexico and would love to get a chance to do some dual sport adventures around SoCal!

    If someone would be willing to let me borrow their bike for a day or two or show me around your area I would be glad to lend you one of my bikes (WR450F, KTM450EXC, CRF250R, CRF250X) and show you the absolutely beautiful trails here! Tickets from SD direct to Maui can be had as low as $300 on hawaiianair.com

    I just did this same bike trade situation in Portland 2 weeks ago and it worked out great!

    I am a responsible, licensed and experienced rider. Thanks!

    If you wanted to come to Northern California I would sign up immediately.

    Of course if I was off riding for a couple of days in Maui it would mean that my wife would be shopping the whole time, so that could get expensive. :D

    No place in So Cal, but if you want to come out and ride Arizona and the surrounding area, I'd put you up, show you around and see if I can help you rustle up a bike (I just have a super enduro, not really a loaner type bike). Made my first trip to Maui last year and wondered what it would be like on a bike!

    I'm 20 minutes from Long Beach. Only issue is that I'll in be Arizona from the 19th to the 24th. So it would have to be the 25th to the 28th.

    I go to Maui all the time and this is the first time I have heard about the trails. Are they on public land?

    Will be riding with Mr. Mendo on Thursday or Friday of next week. More than likely Thursday. He has a been offered the TE310 or the 450EXC. Probably do a Wrightwood to Big Bear and back loop but I'm still open to something else. Anyone want to join us just chime in.
