    There will be a bunch of miles of up and down mini canyons. Nothing technical but up and down for sure. My loop will take 4-5 hours with breaks here and there. If dudes want to ride more after we get back to staging, bring gas, we'll be parked in the middle of tons of trails. Staging is 500 yards off pavement.

    Can't wait to check out your new 500. Planning on upgrading my 500 to latest version late this summer.

    Maybe 20 miles pavement but probably less. This would be between Hwy 40/ Camprock Rd. and gas stop at Ghost TownRoad/ Hwy 15.

    Interested, but bigger bike looks advisable. Unfortunately, I don't know what time I get home from work and if I can put that tire on in time on the xr650r. I'll watch the thread and see where your route is and know more tomorrow.

    Thanks ,

    Start to gas in Yermo is 65 miles. There is AMPM and Jack in the Box at this stop.. Bring your own chow if you want, we will be taking time for snacks, and bs.
    Gas back to staging 50 miles or less.
    There will be sand at many parts of the ride. Sand as in sand washes. You will like sand after this ride. There will also be easy boring roads.
