Sounds awesome, Stone Brewery (www.stoneworldbistro.com) is by far the best place in the world to have a burger and a beer.

Thanks
CA Stu

PS Can I bring a funnel?

4 Stone IPAs = drunk. At least for me. Thems some strong beers there Stu.

6.9% so it depends. Are they 12oz or the 22oz?

My favorite is the 15th Anniversary @ 10.9% and the Double Bastard @ 10.5 Two of those 22oz and I'm

12oz.

Two of those extra-strong beers in a 22oz. and I'm

I'd like to claim one of those stickers, too, if I can.

Thanks

Blake - I rode a modified first part of our next trip (Ramona - Butterfield) except for the gated Santa Ysabel TT yesterday. Pine Creek was new to me and a great road! I saw BMW/KTM and FuzzyNugs at the Desert Dash campground - they both rode the 200 mile trip on day one and I think Chris took day two off but my hat is off to both of them. They are a good resource to chime in about what I have to report next about Grapevine/Jasper.

I went to the hideout for a burger (and blondes) and rode DOWN the Grapevine/Jasper trail and I have concerns over the bigger big bikes riding up that trail. There are a couple uphills that will be short but steep and loose when coming from the other direction. Not sure I would want to run a 1200 up those and I consider myself a decent rider.

Also, today I scouted the Rodriguez Spur Truck Trail, this is the trail that is to the east of what we called Oriflamme (but is really Mason Valley truck trail that we rode). I rode it up from where it splits from Mason Valley TT at the bottom of Oriflamme canyon (it rejoins it just before the gate at the end by Banner grade). I am happy to say it is scenic and big bike friendly. Some of the off road sites say this trail is harder but only because of the big boulders the 4 wheelers cannot go around. It is less steep and rocky than Mason Valley TT. It will be an easy run downhill and I recommend we drop off Banner grade to this trail on the way to Butterfield on day one, just a thought.

Earlier comments about Santa Ysabel TT being harder than Grapevine is just not true coming from the direction we are planning on. There are no technical sections on SY TT, it is a Jeep trail that I used to run in 2 wheel drive. From the other direction (from Black Canyon towards Black Mtn) there are some short hill climbs but only a problem when wet and in May it will be real nice.

I'm working through a 750ml bottle of Allagash Curieux Ale. It's awesome, but at 11%, I'm having trouble typing.

I had a heckuva time staying on top of my loaded 1100 going down Grapevine, but I'm up for the challenge of going up. At the kickoff of day 2, we'll make sure to let everyone know what they're riding into. Most of the riders are on their second round, so they know what's up.

I ride SY TT several times a month during the open season and it really is nothing to worry about...more of a warm up for Grapevine.

I will have enough stickers for everyone to get at least one. I think we'll have 10 leftover for those who want two.

Shirt Size!!!

Everybody!

Yeti Scott has offered to coordinate a t-shirt order, but we need to get everybody's order before we pull the trigger. I have posted a poll, so please take a moment to submit a response.

The shirt will be a brown short sleeve cotton tee with the ride logo (post #1) on the lapel (ok, tee shirts don't have a lapel, so call it the breast). We haven't talked about the back of the shirt yet, but I'm leaning towards a clean back to keep cost down. Post up of you object.

I like the small logo on the breast and a big logo across the back. As long as it's no more than $20-$25 I'm ok with it. Voted XXXL for me. I like em loose. :-)

To do the logo as shown (ie 3 colors) small in front and large in back, would be about $18-20.

Well, the official site for these events is now live:
SoCalDualSport.com

We also have a Facebook page located here:
https://www.facebook.com/SoCalDualSport

There is a dedicated forum for these specific events here: (Hosted by: DualSportMoto)
Local Riding - Southern California

(Registration on ANY OF THE ABOVE IS NOT REQUIRED to view the site or register for a ride. It is ONLY there as an added resource)


Happy to take suggestions, ideas, and thoughts on the new site. I'd like to get articles about how YOU camp off your bike and what YOU carry so I can put them up on the site.

This site was built for the SoCal riders by SoCal riders.

This site was built in coordination with 'bdarling' & 'x-country-rider'. This is not a rogue endeavor. :)

Thanks for your help!
