    I'm in Canyon Lake but we owned a ranch in Rainbow for years. Not sure it was all legal but we rode from Rainbow to Ocotillo once.

    If you need an extra rider let me know. I'll be on a plated XR650R.

    Thanks for the thread!

    Sdar has ignored multiple attempts to request an account. I'm thinking its really a KTM club.

    Some great back country stuff in SD. I saw you finally got an account at SDAR http://dualsport-sd.com/forums/

    The founder/prez/admin travels a bit for work but when I joined a few years ago, I just called him at the number listed after a few days of waiting and he was on it. And yes....it's a bit KTM heavy but that's probably due to the "street legal dirt bike" aspect. I ride quite a bit with them and there actually is a good variety of bikes and riding preferences.

    Look forward to your posts and some rides.
