    I live in Alta Loma and always up for a relaxed (or not) ride in the local mountains. Let me know if you ever want company.

    Hey I’m Bob. Been a long time since I’ve posted. I’m @sopascat son that’s how some might know me. Just wondering if anyone is planning a ride this weekend or next in the area. Got a smaller bike so would be hoping for a bit more dirt then pavement.

    Hey Matt @rider914 always have fun riding with you. If you’ve got any rides planned soon I’d love to join.

    Hiya Bob :wave

    Good to see you are still around and up for some riding :ricky
    Still on the WR250?

    Hope @sopascat and the rest of the family are all safe and doing well :nod

    Didn't get out for any local rides this weekend (prepping for an overnite next weekend :evil), but i've been thinking a lot about getting down to Anza Borrego area within the next month.
    Maybe an overnite on the big bike, maybe a looong day trucking down with the small bike, or maybe a long weekend truck camping (Butterfield? Stagecoach?) with the small bike :dunno

    Stay tuned :augie

    We’ve still got the WR but I ride an FE350 now. I’ve had it since January and have barely been able to ride it. Probably looking more for a day ride then an overnight for now.

    I’ve never been to Anza Borrego before but I think @sopascat has. We’re all doing pretty well and getting by.

    I will definitely stay tuned and see what I can make it for.

    Anyone riding Anza Borrego these days? I want to get back to Fish Creek and maybe some fire roads around the OHV area (scenic riding for me few rooster tails).

    I'd be interested in an Anza overnight if that's still in the cards?

    Is that the small gauge train track? How far do you take it?

    Late notice...

    I really need to get out for a ride tomorrow.
    Probably big bike, mostly pavement, with some easy dirt (think Swarthout Rd).
    Not likely an early start, will be doing good if I can roll out of home ~9am.
    No idea where to go, have only a vague idea to check out the burn areas from Wrightwood towards Valyermo and beyond.

    Anybody know a good target for lunch out that direction?

    :ear

    That sounds like something even I could do! I'll check here in the morning - it takes at least an hour to get anywhere down the hill from Big Bear...
