If you see a nOOb on SCD by himself around 10am, please don't startle him or else you have to help me pick up my bike.....

Just out of curiosity, but at what point do you no longer qualify as a "nOOb"?

I think miles alone disqualify you at this point...despite what others might argue, it's not always about speed.

That's what I want to know....... Joel keeps saying I'm not a nOOb, while he continues to hold onto the title for himself

Question New guy on a new to me KLR

Hi!

I've been lurking here a bit, while I watched for the right KLR at the right price. Found the bike, now to find the rides.

All of my riding to this point has been street, so I'm hoping for some easy fireroad kind of places to check out, or a group going out and doing something that I won't kill myself on the first time out.

Also, how do I know where I can legally ride? I've hiked a bit on Angeles Crest and saw some easy looking dirt roads/trails/fireroads, that looked like they would be fun to ride, but don't know what is allowed or where.

Thanks!

Steve

Hey Steve,
  1. It's a road
  2. You have a lic plate
  3. There is no road closed sign (they're not for ADV'rs anyway)
GO RIDE!!

Really?!

That's the way I did things as a kid in other places, but CA is so ... regulated, I thought there was some sort of a "got ya" that would cost me a ticket for waking up the yellow toed tree louse or something.

Any suggestions as to starting points?

Thanks!

Steve

Funny, I just moved from Pasadena to Torrance, but will still watch for the weekend rides. Pasadena isn't that far!

Thanks!

Understatement.

I had a very bad day. Nothing went right. I got in soft stuff trying to make a turn...I went over and bruised my knee (new pads being ordered this week.) I fell in the water crossing as I was exiting. I fell again when the hill above the water crossing decided to add insult to injury and then there was the attempt to drive off a cliff.

The guy on the big 950 Adventure (Sito?) picked me up the first time. His advice got me through the next section. Thank you so much.

The next three were with Cathy and Dave (?). I had to take a break and eat a cliff bar. I was beaten. I was given some more lessons and things went much better but I was done. Thank you guys. You're angels.

This group will pick you up and give you a bit of advice too. I could not imagine learning without these guys.

I have a BIG bruise on my entire kneecap. I got really lucky. Yes, knee pads are being ordered this week. No trail until I have them.

Anyway, you guys ROCK!
