Sounds good, I got really sick there for a bit and didn't know what was up when I kept losing my balance on the bike. Just getting back on two wheels after almost a year so I'm sure my daughter would love to get out.

I wish but it was complications from a previous head trauma/stroke. (you never know I guess) I feel great now so I am really looking forward to some wheeling.

Hey everyone. I'm from Fullerton and I'm new to the forum and new to adventure riding. I've been riding road bikes for the past 8 years and have enjoyed the local canyons. I'm now interested in adding a little off-road to the mix! I ride a G650GS and am having a blast with it.

I'll be here looking for good routes to ride and hope to see some of you out there someday!

that's a nice bike and suitable for roads that we normally travel on.

9055, you're in the right place and we plan to do the annual carrizo/pozo next january....still have the time to buy a warm sleeping bag...









the next ride will be similar to this one

Hey dudes. I just moved to L.A. From Florida. I have a dr650, I feel pretty comfortable on most offroad stuff, but with that said I am from Florida so the canyons and fire roads that Ive done since I've been here are have been a new beast( cliff on one side and wall on the other) anyways I have no clue on good rides around here, I've been doing research, but the best way to learn is following the guys that know. Hope to join in some rides.

Welcome. You've come to the right place. Keep an eye on this thread for upcoming local rides. Mostly desert rides in the winter here.

Plenty of riding all winter long. M1 has a dr650. I have a dr650. Everything around here is the best the day after a rain. This weekend the dez or the mountains should be epic!
