    If the weather isn't a PIA - I'm looking at doing some riding on the 29th / 30th or both if anyone is into it, bike is all buttoned up. May even look at camping.

    My burfday on the 1st - so dang it, I'm gonna put some miles on the ODO.

    Hey gang! Dirt / Dualsport / Small bike for sure - Usual Suspects come to mind for a day trip - Rowher / Gorman etc - Likely something with some elevation. Could Look into Jawbone if Temps are okay. Otherwise could look to head up into Arrowhead / Big bear? I haven't done too much riding up there.

    If anyone's got any strong opinions / recs and wants to tag along, I'm easily convinced!

    Anyone riding today near LA?

    I’m thinking of hitting Rowher to practice my hillclimbs on the 2 black runs up the hill.

    This is how we do it by my house. A stretched out, lowered and chromed Ruckus on one corner and an old school lawnmower mini bike on the other corner. 20190622_135611.jpg

    I’ll be going to Rowher tomorrow to test my revalved front forks, new Oberon slave cylinder and rebuilt clutch master cylinder. Husqvarna should stop using parts from the KTM bins.

    9:30 at 7-11 on Osborne. Post up if joining otherwise I can do a KSU sooner or later. Sorry could not post earlier, just got them done 15 minutes ago.

    KTM is jealous of the 701 sales that they have to do something.

    Having a breakdown 700 miles away from home with only 800 miles on the engine sucks.

    I'm going up with Chris and Sarah, the french couple from DVNR we took up /down the Reward Mine with all the other Noobs. We're leaving LA around 845 and taking surface streets. My phone is 310-713-1365 if you want to text me to try and meet up. I'll look for that 7/11.
