    Take a look at all the fun We have been having. www.dsrider.com meeting & making new friends, swaping bikes, guys leading great rides, comparing bikes, mods & riding gear, learning a lot & exploring California in new ways. Going anywhere two wheels can go & finding the limit of were they can't. some have even rode early into the morning. Riding hard & fast & mellow & conserative. We do it all from newbie to seasoned riders. All walks of life coming together. Low budget 1/4 liter to high powered one liter and beyond exotic machines and every thing in between We ride together eat together laugh plan trips & most of all have a blast together. COME RIDE WITH US.

    I'm in. Also looks like we may have rain earlier in the week which, from what I hear, should keep some of the dust down.

    I agree the rain before the ride will be nice. There was some dust on our ride, mostly from KTM Tom's bike he had his new knobbies on & with all that power I made the mistake of being behind him. It was so much fun.

    </TD><TD class=alt1 id=td_post_4414074><!-- message -->Hey Rob,

    Great pics on the dsrider.com site. Pics usually make trails look less steep, but those goat path shots look damn steep. Where are we going next?!

Daytona Rider knows of some good areas. We have some new riders also. The guy we met at 007 really wants to ride with us on next ride. Again the KLR's were the majory. THE majory of dirt & snow & gravel came from the back of Highside Toms, KTM Tom's & Big Steves bike. I was surveying the damage report on my bike & the front light is cracked I could not think of a better way to break something using it like it was meant to be used. They were steep.

    So after looking at report which bike would you have chosen? Your powerhouse or plated dirt bike. I think everyone had DOT dirt tires (not Highside) KTM Tom spooned on some meaty tires I have a cracked headlight to prove it. It's a good thing I had my "pretty" custom windsheild on or I may have even more teeth missing since I could not wipe the smile off my face even when eating dust! Maybe when I become a better rider I can saddle my own "one liter horse" Untill then I will be installing a Lexan headlight protector. My limited power is a good "safety nanny" for me.
    Look forward to our next ride together. The Snow people are quickly migrating deep into the earth. We will be able to really explore this great state way up in the high country.

    You already have a berger in the group! Woot! I won't be the only one, right on! I would really like to hit the paventment/dirt the 22nd. I will keep my fingers crossed that all goes well and I can get out of the house for the day.

    Who is is the owner of that machine? I have a few discard parts that he might be interested in, mostly plastics, some swtiches etc.

    I hope to see all the usual suspects on the next ride, I heard that Daytona Rider is leading the next ride, but no one has heard from him. Someone will step up I hope. Any ideas on where to go?

    Hello all,

    I will be in Death Valley for that weekend! :freaky

    Going to get some serious offroading in for three days and two nights of happy times. The rumors of me leading this ride may have been overzealous, and I am sure going to miss you fellas'. Couldn't make the last ride but is sure looks like I missed a torture session and a long one!

    I don't want to see anyone else go to the hospitable, that may inconvenance the ride. If he is a crazy Hussy rider like "6 MILL HIGHSIDE" We don't want to see a newbie hurt himself trying to keep up with (6MH) Remember Steve those hussys have a lot of power and can get away from a rider, I have even heard they have a mind (tiny) of there own!

    If nobody is going to take the lead for the 22nd, I will. I can come up with a good one.
