Leaving Ramona @ 9 tomorrow and riding part of the new Hijinks route (includes Grapevine) to Butterfield where I am camping and meeting some friends riding the Desert Dash. Then in the morning I am heading back home taking the trail (don't know the name) that parallels Oriflamme to the east up to Banner Grade. I want to explore this trail to maybe include in a future big bike ride, as I remember from 10+ years ago it was an easier ride than Oriflamme but maybe a bit more sand. If to crappy I'm not afraid to turn back.
Anyone is welcome to join me as long as you can ride some light sand and can camp (you will need food for Sat night). I am on a KLR650. Should be warm and clear, lunch at Hideout.
