Thanks for including us in your RR. Looks like you guys had a great time. BTW, Azteca is less than 1/2 mile (as the crow flies) from my house. We definitely need to keep in touch better.

Catch you guys next time.

scott, riding in big bear at this time of the year is wonderful. probably the closest place to ride in the summer time when it hits 100F here at home.

lucky you having a place there, i'm envious. lots of good riding....and in the trees.

we've been coming to azteca i think 4 years in a row, at least 2 a year. good mex food.


will see you again.

mammoth solo ride

mammoth:2013.06.23

i believe in safety in numbers, and don't like riding solo much. this ride, there were no takers. it will be my first time riding alone away from home. mammoth at this time after sunset gets very cold. so, to increase the probability of being able to ride back to base, i have to do a a several stuff.

- took the smallest bike in the garage

- made sure the bike is in great shape and all the maintenance done. the bike is new to me, new parts have been installed....and therefore have to shake it down for 3 days or so before this ride.

- brought tools, spare parts, swiss knife, inner tubes, water and powerbars.

- stuffed warmer jacket in my back pack

- planned on doing the easy and int stuff. will ride only within my skill level. this is more an exploratory ride than anything else

- wore the proper gear and protection

- fresh battery on my spot, and tested it; and put it on track mode while riding

- had friends monitor my spot movement

- brought my cell phone...and the sat phone just in case... both with fully charged batteries

- have a working gps, with tracks and critical waypoints, plus a map

- i talked to a ranger who was in the area doing trail maintenance. i shared him my plan. his name is will. nice guy, he gave me good routes and another but different map than i have.

- most important, brought my b-game (don't have an a-game..hehe)


what else could go wrong....

made sure the tank is full...obligatory gas price pic



let's get on with the ride...and it starts where this ends




that's right, it's a ride in the park




heard about this tunnel under the 395....wohooo finally found it








actually 2 tunnels




deep sand but no problem on the 3pipty




i am so slow that my dust is catching up with me....hahaha








this one is just along side the 395








latest usfs project...you just follow this sign and they will take you to june lake








i really enjoy the area. has variety of terrain and landscapes







another water crossing

from the woods i came out to this wide open area



this place was empty



it looks like a quarry, but it's actually a natural rock erosion






watch for roots...lots of them along and across the trails



voila! i was going up the hill in deep pea sized gravel, i didn't even put my foot down, the rear just spun and dug in.



could not get it unstuck, it just kept on digging. learned this trick from jimmy lewis, put bike on the side, find a big rock and put in the hole (i used a good chunk of wood - weigh less)



past noon time and did 42 fun miles

Where its at home...................................close enough to the KTM tent and mechanic so it can get fixed.



















Next time Joel, I hope to be free so I can ride down and ride Mammoth and June Lake area with you! You are just my speed. Or you make me feel fast!? Great pics!

rode up to this chair lift and found another dirt road



water and logs, challenging enough for me




wtp i got into




same sign everywhere




it wasn't that bad and was only a short portion. soon it turned into this



i would have dragged the bike underneath the log if there was room








most of those trails will take you back to the pavement

while riding along the scenic road, my gps showed me a road that cut across through the woods into town



if you don't have a compass, gps or the sun, use the mountain range as your guide



i'm going in the right direction



and downhill is the right way



i like to check out the campgrounds, and this one....very much surprised to see these guys (bob, nate and lance). i know nate for years, and rode with (nate and lance) 2 weeks ago with jimmy lewis. small world!



nate from last ride



that was then



straight to my favorite pizza joint and lunch after 3




i had the sierra 10"



the sun doesn't set until past 8, yeah, still plenty of riding to be had



more coming.

i knew there was a race that weekend and the days to follow, thought of checking it out



race was over, but it was cool to get a pic of the bike and the track. definitely, not a usual thing.








seeing the #111, that's taddy's bike.....wohoooo.......http://blazusiak.com/?p=2054




upon closer examination, it is sleeter's.....http://twostrokemotocross.com/2010/1...e-sleeter-111/



here's me fantasizing getting the hole shot.....



i like taking pics of sprinter vans
