Big Bear to Yucca Valley -- Two KTM LC8 ADV's
We started out in
As we started ascending in the mountains, it became very chilly, so we stopped to get the warmer gear on….
Now in Fawnskin, we got ready for some dirt….
The views and weather were perfect….
Food is served….
Nice “biker” friendly atmosphere….
Quick prep before we hit the trails again….
Intersection of 2N02 and 3N03….
Now we are down in the Joshua Trees….
After a few minutes of finding our coordinates on the map, we turn right….
There are many long and fast dirt roads out here. We past a mini “motocross” track that paralleled the road we were on, so we circled back and ran that section. Its marked on the map below. There wasn’t much sand until just before the pavement starts before hitting Pioneertown.
After refueling in
Here is a map of our route. PM me if you would like a larger version of this….

Awesome post. Thank you.
Just sent PM for larger map.
I have ridden dirt bikes in nearby Johnson Valley, but too much sand for my big bike. Those dirt roads you were on looked perfect.

The seat on that 990 doesn't look to comfy. It does look like I'd be able to touch the ground though.

Looked like an awesome trip. We only have woods on the East Coast, different style. I love the wide open spaces you have out there.

Great report, looks like it was nice up there! Funny I just did the same exact ride about 2 weeks ago, even ate at the same little burger joint, good burgers!
