Best Noob "Day Trip" Trail/Ride in So Cal? La Verne/Los Angeles
 
So I'm getting my XR650R on the 23rd. Thinking of taking it out for a shake-down run next weekend (Saturday or Sunday), and am looking for good noob trail recommendations. Any other noobs planning to be out that weekend?

TIA!

No, I'm really a noob... And good at listening/following in order to learn. I've had an XR650R in the past, but other than some whooped-out sections near Barstow, it never saw any real trails. My KX450 was almost exclusively a sand dune bike... :huh :D So I'm a stark noob off road.

I've read some of your Rowher Flats posts (and have been following Riceless/Razr posts religiously...), so I'd love to check them out. Hopeful join/meet some of you guys.

You could go up Cleghorn off the 15 near 138, it's easy enough.

Or mess around Lytle Creek.

This is a really good idea since it is a well traveled dirt road and if there are any issues you would prolly have plenty of help around should it be needed.

A pretty easy ride from where you live too you can take either freeway or surface streets to get there.

Congrats on the new bike :thumb
I rode an XRR for many many years before going fully orange.

I'm planning to get out around the Cajon Pass saturday or sunday or maybe both. You could say I know the area fairly well :rolleyes
Let me know if you need a tour guide. Fire roads, jeep / ohv trails, single trak, (no trak :wink:). ~150 miles is a good day.
I usually just ride from home (a few miles east of you). Convenient to meet at the gas stations at Lytle Creek (I15 @ Sierra exit).

Wow--sounds good! But remember, I'm a noob--"no trail" sounds like the stuff good "ouch" videos are made from... at least for now. I'm down for Friday, Saturday, maybe Sunday...

Rowher I ride my CT90 up there and hit most of the trails good times

Got a little wrenching to do, so probly can't go friday.
Pick a time and place for the weekend and i'll be there.

Any other <s>suckers</s> wanna go?

Seriously tho...
Ask anyone, I ride for fun, not to hurt or kill myself. Doesn't mean there wont be a couple challenges, but they'll be FUN challenges :evil
