Pretty sweet Joel.

Replace the 2 bikes with a quad, ditch the gear and throw a couple more passengers in the back and you're the baddest dude at Gorman or El Mirage.

Congratulations, Joel. That looks like a great bike hauler in the rough.

Very nice.
So once you sell your 950 no more long rides for you anymore. You'll truck your small bikes all over.

refering to Post 24145

3 DRZs headed up Cucamonga Truck Trail on Oct 1.
Once you hit the Valero station just north of I_15 you head ~ 1-2 miles up and look for the lefthand turnoff. If Lytle Creek Road starts to get twisty, you've gone too far-back track.
Here is the turnoff:

A beautiful 13 mile ride with rarely "seen scenery" (say that 3 times real fast). About 6 miles up is the turnoff for the microwave towers-take the ~1/4 mile side trip to get great views of Cajon Pas and Lytle Creek. Don't linger as the RF from the antenna might cook you a little

Great views of Santiago and Modjeska peaks (center of photo) in the CNF from a rarely seen view.



The road is pretty standard - a nice creek crosses the road (you might see some deer there like we did) but after the microwave farm, there is some more technical, sketchy stuff (no photos-we were having too much fun). A couple miles before the end of the trail there are some super steep, what appear to be 1,000 ft. drops from the road
As you enter the 'campground" there is a nice log crossing that is challanging. Bring some snacks enjoy the view. Eventually, you make it to the sadly delapidated Joe Elliot Campground @ ~ 6,000 ft. Backside views of Caucamonga peak abound. From there the road ends-it'll likely never open again, and retrace your steps back to the trailhead.



All in all a FANTASTIC ride

mb sprinter = not exactly trucking, hard to describe. neither a truck, van, suv, camper, big locker or woirkshop. it's all of the above. the sprinter forum call it a swiss knife.

ersin, the 640 has alway been my adventure bike, and we need to plan another long ride. after the rain, let's do joshua tree.

ok jeff, posting these with the expectation that i get to park on your side yard whenever i go to tahoe.....

my plan is to take this and spend 1 week or 2 of riding in nevada, az, oregon, colorado, utah and other neighboring states. it's big enough to carry all the essential provisions, be self sufficient and comfy.
