    Hey gents,

    Can someone here point me in the right direction to select some decent forest roads / trails up at Big Bear that I can do with my F800? I've only been riding about three months / 5000 miles so nothing too over the top. I'm okay in a little sand, a little gravel and moderate whoops but when they're all combined at the same time my bike gets sleepy.

    My wife has a MTB race up there in a few weeks and I'd like to take the F800 along to kill time and check out the scenery while she's racing.

    Thanks!

    Las Vegas... baby!

    OK that sounds like 3N14 to 3N16 .

    How far would it be to get there (Bowen /Coxey) from Johnson valley?
