    Be ready to ride at 8:30 am:huh Yes it's early but the Sun set early too. Just get your ass out of bed it will be worth it!

    The plan: Wonder around the desert to Randsburg ,El Paso's to Jawbone and a sweet power-line rd back to mojave , be back to the airport right before dark :deal (maybe) Trail Trick has agreed to help lead this ride so you will want to bring your "A" game. This will not be a fire road ride!

    Requirements:
    1. Bike needs to be in good reliable shape (we will be far from any roads)
    2. 100 mile gas range.
    3. Be ready to repair your own flats and have everything you need to do it!
    4. Good team attitude, You will be responsible for the rider behind you! you can not go until the rider behind you waves you forward. This is not a race and we don't want to spend half the day roaming the desert looking for lost riders.
    5. Be prepared to share your beer with the group leaders!:lol3
    6. This would not be a noob ride. If you think sand whoops and steep rocky down hills are scary this is not the ride for you. If your ready to haul ass in the sand do lots of single track hill climbs then your in the right place.
    7. leave the hard luggage at home! (unless it's full of beer and road tested) if you want to road test your gear be prepared to leave it on the trail if it falls off!:lol3

    Some of us will be meeting early and having breakfast at the Airport restaurant this will also be the meeting spot:
    Voyager Restaurant
    1434 flight Line #58
    Mojave, Ca 93501

    Trail Tricks directions:
    Goggle mojave airport and get the address , i go 14 north to 58 east maybe a mile in the left hand side is a sign "Mojave Airport " go to the end o that rd and you see the tower and the restaurant , pretty good breakfast BTW. I always get there by 7:30 am get gear up ,unload the bike and by then restaurant is open ,i have breakfast in exchange for the courtesy to park there and go for a ride ,never have a issue in 10 years , the security guy is a cool dude also .

    GAS UP BEFORE YOU GET TO THE MEETING SPOT. ALSO PLEASE CHIME IN IF YOU ARE PLANING TO ATTEND. WE WILL DETERMINED LATER IN THE WEEK IF WE NEED TO CLOSE THE LIST.
