Road is in good condition, you won't need one. Especially if you ride as slow as me

Nice, thanks man. I have a feeling that since motocrazy said 8am ish, idk if thats at the gate or the top, ill see him on the way down.

Hey motocrazy if you see a guy going down on an XR650L and grey jacket, say hi. If your going to go up early like me, than disregard and ride up with me.

Anyone else going?

Xmas morning ride

Just found out I have free time in the morning so will try to be at the end of Silverado at 9AM- probably on a red XR400. I usually go to the top of the northern peak for starters, maybe will run into some of you on the trail...

That pic was taken from a narrow goat trail, off of a side trail, off of another side trail, off of an unnamed road, off of an old stagecoach trail

Glad I didn't plan to meet anyone this morn. Hubby wanted to sleep in xmas morning instead of ride. Gotta give a guy a break every once in a while.

Hope everyone has a great Christmas and good riding all year long!

12/25/09 Saddleback ride

Well like i said i went to the top this morning. The trail was in really great condition. The view was amazing. Little cloudy in the valleys but could still see out past LA. It was really cold though. So here are the pics:

The all familiar lights of the city


Top of Santiago peak before the sunrise


Lighter, but still no sun


Ahhhh, theres the sun


Great view of Lake Elsinore


Thumper decided to take a nap on the way down


All in all, a great way to welcome Christmas morning.

First Time in Years

I haven't been up CNF in years.

Took a one-way ride from Maple Springs over to Ortega with a group of buddies this AM. Same routing, same dirt; but amazed by all the 'protective' improvements. Saw no other two-wheelers tho' & the mid-day view was stupendous. The Lookout was appreciative of a few extra customers.

Went back via Ortega as hauling the three wheeler back over the hump seemed like more work than I wanted to do on a day off!
