We understand, but I thought your horse have nine lives!



Also, while you're out in the town, get yourself a pair of waterproof boots!

haven't had saturday AND sunday off in a LONG time. BUT between
jobs means BROKE as well, so which ever is cheaper(no hotels).
Sorry to hear about your situation! I've been in that predicament a few times, and the good thing about living in Los Angeles, there are a lot of job opportunities, a big + for the most hated city!

I don't think last nights rain changed the condition at all up on Angeles Forest and in fact just made the trail less dusty. Set up a ride, there could be some FFs who wants to do a local ride.

Here is my thinking: Meet at the gas station off the 15fwy & Silverwood exit at 7:30 heading out by 8:am. I would like to take a route that will get me to Pioneer Town by 11:30 get some lunch and a Margarita and head back home by 3:30 4ish. I’m hoping to do as much dirt as possible and move at a good pace. I’m going to try and pick Rider914's brain and see if he can help find a route that will work and not get us stuck in closed fire areas or 2’ of snow.

Thanks Matt! the route looks like a blast. Two question: How many miles from the gas station to Pioneer Town and can we get gas at Pioneer Town?

To all that are think of going, I was able to down load Matt route and store it in my gps.(I'm a newbie at GPSS so I was impressed). So now we won't get lost .

The route looks fun and not too challenging. I'll be riding a 950 and trying to move at a good pace. I'm no speed demon and anyone is invited to come along.

As far as bike? that all depends if you know how to ride it? I have seen guys do black diamond trails on a big GS with no problems. From what I remember last year when I did Pioneer it was a little mix of everything some sand, rocks and flat grated roads but nothing nuts.

No gas in pioneer town
Closest is in Yucca Valley about 7 miles away.

I'll try and make this as I'm going out there anyway, may have to do it with hard bags though.

there was a hill that I got stuck on 2 weeks ago but made it up....got a little more momentum this week and presto....Isnta-nap



...if you look closely you will see that is some kind of thorn bush...still picking thorns out of my hyde as we speak...

Good to always ride with the calvary though...Can I say that it was STEEPER than it looks.....???
