I have even ridden on the Sobboa reservation which can get you shot..!!
No shit !! you may get shot if you ride there. I dont recommend it.

But for anyone who doesnt know the area here is a clip.
This is a green sticker legal to ride black diamond trail.
The fireroads are well groomed and have almost no rocks on them unlike CNF.
I dont think anyone on a Dakar will be able to do this trail.

If you dont watch the whole thing just watch the last minute or two.
The soil is great up there and after a rain it is as fun as anywhere I know of.
To my OC bretheren. When the time comes we can stage at a friends house in Anza that is only about a 10 minute ride from this trail. Roads not trail so street legal a must.
Then we can also make the loop larger and hit the high country of Coyote Canyon in Anza Borrego State Park down to the old horse camp where the road was closed off to keep riders/ trucks from dropping down into the low desert.
This is a fun section once you get off the hill and turns into sandy single track or you can bypass and take the wash down.

This section Kali is talking about is pretty rocky from what I remember, hell all of California is rocky for the most part. A few smooth areas for some relief but still gardens a plenty.

As opposed to the next ride after other one.... Dakar rides are a distant memory

Any of you clowns want to ride on Friday to show an inmate from Maui some of our trails? Wrightwood - Silverwood lake - Big Bear and back. About 90 miles total.

The backside of Canyon Lake was the place to go back in the late 1990's. Even shot some TV shows back up in there. But the Roverside County Task force cam in and shut it down. Then with no activity, people started dumping trash there. I don't go there anymore due to picking up too many nails in the tires now.

If you know the Sobboa Indians, then you are OK. They have some sweet bikes and like to ride. But it's I tend to stay away.

I already got you the seat hook up. Did you get it on yet? Your ass is gonna love it.

Blue Jay CG

Hi locals,

I made a promise to my girlfriend to take her to a local camping on bike one night. And she wants to do it this Friday.
I am planning to take her to Blue Jay CG off Ortega. Do you think it is a good idea?
I checked weather and it will be 80's day time and 50's night. No rain. Only from 7pm Friday night to Saturday afternoon.
Any comments? I've never been to Blue Jay. I'll take pavement, no dirt. Tent camping and trail cooking. Do I need to take firewood or can I just grab some from the area?
Any feedback will be appreciated.
Thanks.
