Noobs - Unite in Southern California Mountains!

In search of noobs (and those who don't mind riding with noobs ) who want to ride Big Bear (in May?) and other SoCal locations. So, if you're a noob or a more experienced rider who'd be interested in showing us the ropes in the mountains post up here.

Thanks!

Always looking for new people to ride with

I'm in the Hesperia area and ride with friends that stage out of the High Desert for day rides up to the mountains or out to the desert on small (250cc) dual sport bikes. Our big trips are camping trips where we ride in and around the Death Valley area staging at Dumont Dunes.
Would love to have more riders with us regardless of level.

Let me know our when you are free and I'll put a trip together.

Thanks, just checked it out and saw the fundraising ride on Sunday. Looking like a plan for a fun day. Saw some other posts I want to get more info on - some really pretty looking roads in the mountains.

Not rubbing it in or anything.....
Hey LB, is that big bike friendly or smaller ones. Just got to SD and am totally ready to head out in May.

I'm here in San Diego and looking to pick up a GS soon, so I'll be in on this in short time hopefully. I can ride on Saturday or Sunday. I know quite a bit of trails East of San Diego. Not so much up north.

Rumor says that its big bike friendly.....this is based on somebody else's (who I don't know) post. From the few pics I've seen it looks like graded dirt roads, but.....

I'm a noob on a Vstrom 650, so if there are trails that are big bike friendly, I would be down to try it out. I've ridden a couple of the dirt roads that branch off the 38 on the way to big bear.

hi sue and others. this thread is looking good.

lots of places to ride for those looking for easy trails or dirt roads. this summer, we typically escape to big bear or along the coast line.

hope to meet you all.

Just got back from Toro Peak - beautiful! The road: some sand (as usual, much more in the center berm), some rocks, a couple steep hills right before the end of the road (easy up, careful down - for me).

Nice noob ride (and this is being written by someone who hasn't had to use their feet yet to count their dirt rides) easy, but enough to keep a noob well occupied.

Noobs on big bikes - I wouldn't, but, if you've ridden a v-strom or some such bike on dirt before.....maybe? Met a nice guy on a gs up there, but he'd ridden some really bad (he said 30 mph would be dangerous) roads in eastern Europe.

So, if anybody is interested, I'm thinking about the the first weekend of May? Also, ride Rouse Ridge? Would make a great all dayer.
