I will start a new thread for more info with date, time, and local info for camping. This ride will be suitable for all size dual sport street legal bikes. First day is slow and easy; the next is a little more difficult due to sandy and washed out roads. Look for up coming info.

That would be a cool adventure, I have not been to Dumont for probably 20 years! Been a long time, would be a really fun time to camp out there for a couple days and explore all that area has to offer!

I'm hoping to start my own website to better document my trips. If I do I'll post the URL here.
Thanks for the details! Anyone going up this Sat (9/15)?

I may be riding up there from my house in Apple Valley Saturday. (I live 10 minutes from dirt). Need to get my suspension back from service tomorrow morning, get that bolted back up and I'll be good. My wife is going down to Redlands on Saturday so I have an open schedule.

Been riding BB area for over 30 years. I'll be on a 530 EXC

I guess they didn't hear you or don't like 530s

Rode up there last week. Been editing the videos all week and just finished today. I know its not fast and not much excitement but I tried to follow the route and got lost and had to cut the ride short since I didn't want to be out there in the dark. I installed GPS and car charger to my bike this week so hopefully I won't get lost next time. I did find some cool routes near Green Valley Lake while being lost and still went through the water crossing hazard getting to Crab Flats CG.

I like the music in your vid, it's like hanging out in the lobby bar of a W hotel. Did some of those same roads a couple months ago ... much cooler temps for summer riding up there.

I'm going to be up this weekend, and can probably steal away for a few hours in the morning Saturday or Sunday if anyone is up for a little ride.

I assume you sped up the video. If not, you are very fast.

Thats so right on...... or its the music that plays on the W hotel TV's in your room that highlight all the activities.... you hear that song on the Tv and yell to your wife in the next room, "Honey they have a special on seaweed wraps today!"..... too funny

Will be in Big Bear this weekend staying with some of wifeys friends. Planning on riding Sat afternoon and Sun morning starting around North Shore Cafe / Fawnskin area each day. Will be riding my full moto-x GS Adventure and no trail is too scary ... well maybe won't do the ride to Devil's Hole again. Not scary, just not fun on the GS.
