Are you guys going to make a thread for 2013?

If you guys need another nb to rag on, I live in Coachella and would be really interested in riding only 40 mins away.

I might be able to get another none dual sport rider to come let me know and I'll try and make it the whole weekend 23-24 of march.

p.s. I can also pitch in on food and any other community offerings.

Sounds good. glad to have you join us!

At this point, I will probably not start a new thread unless somebody really thinks we should.

Does anybody need directions? See everybody soon!

Questiones? Por Favor!

Are we still talking March 23-24? If so, count me in!

I'm lookin' forward to the new-found mine! Also lookin' forward to seeing the "Gang."

Any chance of a ride to explore Corn Springs?

Before the Ancient Lake Cahuilla, the entire valley was connected to the Gulf of California. The Colorado River switched its course which in turn brought a great deal of sediment and filled in this area creating the salty lake.

This is what allowed the native people to live there for so long because it was actually a very green and lush area.

Not trying to be a smart ass, but its good info. to have if you go there often.

P.s. couldn't find a better link other then wikipedia so..

Yup, still on for March 23-24. See you in a week!

At this point, The food plan is carne asada bbq for Sat afternoon dinner, Believe what you want about Niland but I have found that the meat market there has some of the best, freshest asada that I have ever found. Thinking about taking a ride down south Sat morning, exploring around the Slab City area, maybe track up the Mammoth Wash sand dunes briefly and detour to hit the Niland meat market on the way back to Casa de Kern for the BBQ.

Post up what you can bring to the Sat afternoon meal and take care of yourself the other meals.

I'll provide the asada but we will still need the rest of the fixens, paperware, beverages, dessert and whatnot.

See you guys soon,

Mike

Hmmmmm

Howdy gang,
I'm back from my South America trip and may be able to make it. The 950 is in need of some maintenance after 10,000+ miles down there but I just ordered a new jet kit for my 400XC so I may have it ready for a ride. Are there going to be any dirt bike only rides?

Yo Jonz,

The Bomb Run has become mandatory for retired Public Employees! Be there!

South American Run sounds great! I'd like to hear more about it. Got some

Over and Out!

No real organization yet. A participant is on his way home and after he arrives, a ride report will follow.

See you there Kelly, and Tom also!

Jonz, those South American vids are fun to watch, can't wait to hear about your trip!

We spent the day doing this...
