Hey guys
Just throwing this out there...

Planning to to do an Anza Borrego ride this saturday (3/10) with my dad.
We typically park at the start of South Pinyon Rd, just across S2 from Stagecoach RV.
Aiming to be there 8:00~8:30am, riding ~9:00am.
75~100miles of desert two-track, sand washes, and jeep trails.
South Pinyon, Fish Creek, Diablo, Tapiado, Vallecito, S2, Oriflamme, Rodriguez,...
Mild pace, but off-road skills required. We'll both be on 525s.

-M

Sounds like TwoWheelsGood and I are going to meet up at the McDonals on I-15 and CA-138 on Sunday morning at 9am to go ride the area around Lake Arrowhead. He will be on his new Husa 570 and I'll be on my DR650...we may get into the intermediate stuff but will make sure there are easy options, as he has a brand new unarmored bike and I'm trying to keep myself and the DR650 fresh for Death Valley Rally. Feel free to join in....I believe he is trucking in and I will be riding in from near downtown LA.

I postponed surgery after until after the holidays, so I could snowboard for 10 days in Big Sky, MT (It's already injured, what's the worse that could happen ?)

Surgery, tendon put back in place, screwed into the bone (got some cool pics!) and 6wks in a sling...actually about 4wks, I "audited" the docs advice for the last 1.5wks.



Arm still numb with the nerve block in the picture above, things about to get realllly shitty in about 3 hours...

The weekend before the doc cleared me to start running and cycling again I went out to the desert with a group from Fresno and demo'ed a Husaberg 570. Plan before the ride was to pick up a used 530 and keep the WR as an ADV bike. The demo sold me on the 570 as the all around bike. So, drove up to Fresno and drove back with this in bed of the truck:



Wrenching a bit and a nicely farkled, ADV'd WR250R will be on the market soon.



So I'm looking to ride on Sunday to break in, sort out the bike. Gearing changes, stuff like that. I'm thinking Cleghorn, Silverwood, Arrowhead, etc, or a desert run. Anyone interested?

Rich


damn rich......

good to hear you're ok now, and better yet....a husa... i bet you were influenced by nowwhat last nov. dv ride.

sweet lab!

All,

Thanks for the welcome back!

DR, yep, video would have been pretty cool. Instead I've got awesome pics of the inside of my shoulder

Yesterday I learned that 570 + trials tire + 11psi + pavement + 1st gear = instant hooligan

And I've bailed on my September Ironman so I'll have much more time to ride this year, will be sure to make WMRS and more.

Rich

I'd like to meet you guys at mickey D's tomorrow (SUN) on an 800gs! I'm looking for another like sized bike in case we need to split off but no luck so far. As long as you don't lead me into snow covered single track (!) I'll be fine. Regardless, I'll see you guys up there as long as there are no objections. Riding from Orange County. I'll check this thread tonight and in the morning.

No gnarly singletrack on this ride but knobbies and self-sufficiency would be groovy . What's great about this area is there are big-bikable forest roads with harder stuff up on the ridges, but as we get closer to Arrowhead, etc, the green and blue stuff separates making it harder to keep a diverse group together.
