Welcome home. I'd be totally up for a dirt ride this weekend if your plans change (wife bails) unless I get the 690 Duke I've been drooling over this week.

Hmmm, street ride, Arrowhead, meet Mrs 914. Sounds like it could be fun. What time you startin? If I need to leave, I can find the bread crumb trail home.

Wind gusts near the Cajon Pass were ferocious this morning They say it will last until sunday eve

Wife914 hates riding in the wind even more than I do, so we may just drive up instead
Currently aiming to be up there sunday noonish, hang out for a couple hours

I can't even get my sis to take off her pumps, let alone put on a helmet! Couldn't be more opposite.

Let me know or post here if you're planning a ride, I may join you. I post here if I want to plan a day ride around LA. Rider914 does local rides more often and he really knows all the routes (and he's a good guy.) I'm MTBing this weekend.

I was thinking of getting out for a couple hours on the little bike, but not too early, maybe 10a. Would that work for you?

Damn, just saw this.

We were riding fire roads near WW yesterday.

My work schedule is finally back to normal after 2.5 years of pure HELL!

This w/e is already booked, but the w/e after, I'll be looking forward to hitting the BB area!

Thinking of doing a repeat BIG BEAR /ARROWhead ride this Sat. Any takers?

Need to see If I can still ride in the dirt. below is Matts ride report from the last ride.

Above the clouds near Thomas Hunting Grounds. (Saddleback in the far distance.)


Past Angelus Oaks and down Middle Control / Mill Creek.


Headwaters of the Santa Ana River.


Original plan was to head for Pioneer Town, but we never made it.

A local rider told us that the restaurant / bar at Seven Oaks was open. Had to stop and check it out.


Never knew this place was here. Turned out to be a pretty cool spot with really good burgers


Dinner stop for future BB night ride?


Continuing on up 2N06 towards Big Bear.


We overcame a couple obstacles.


Some small patches of snow at ~8k ft.


Made our way out to Holcomb Valley via Van Dusen. Just west of the campground we saw a string a kids with a strange assortment of homemade wagons and carts. It was some sort of youth group on a 'pioneer experience' adventure. I guess they had to build a way to carry all of their stuff, then transport it from town out to the camp ares.

This last group had a crate mounted to a couple of carpet dollies. They were not having fun


Pit stop on 3N08. The burn area is starting to get some green back


I split up with Sito at 3N14. He was gonna bounce out to the hwy and over to Arrowhead to check out the homestead, while I planned to follow the jeep trails and such down to Silverwood.

The big creek crossing on 3N93 was almost totally dry


Several rock gardens provided some Enduro-Cross practice.


This one was a bit sloppy and slippery.


Gatekeeper section just before 3N16.


I zipped up to Crab Flats, then down 3N34 (Dishpan) to Deep Creek.

A troop of RZR's were working their way down the rocks.




Followed 3N34 around to Pinnacles, then 2N33 and 2N37 down to Miller Cyn.

Along the way there were a couple of deep creek crossings that will likely dry up in the next few weeks.




Finished off with a few 'secret' roads behind Silverwood, then Cleghorn and Lytle Creek on the way home.
