We'd prefer off the grid camping and some place with few neighbors (nothing against you guys of course).

Any recommendations?

I don't know if you mean Whitney Pockets or another area, but Whitney Pockets is a pretty fun place to camp. I've camped a couple of times at a place just before Whitney Pockets. We spent our time riding, but I think there are petroglyphs close by that can be hiked to. A couple of miles south brings you to a wash that goes down to Lake Mead. I think it would be fantastic riding for kids.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I'm putting together a plan. I particularly like Harcus' retirement style plan of grab a map and go. I wish I had that kind of flexibility...some day maybe.

On a related note, anyone have a clean CRF70, TTR90 or KLX110 they want to sell?

I was on top of the B today. Amazing weather with just a touch of ice in places. It won't last long.

I spent 42 years shackled with the Golden Handcuffs. Maybe you can figure out an escape plan to shorten that number.

Hope springs eternal...

Edit:

Just had a change of heart on selling. It's my chase vehicle for the grandkid on her quad. Sorry.

We rode the Pony Express on Thursday. Good to get out before the snow, but we did hit 14 degrees.

Highway dirtbikes billet rear turn signals

In a mix-up HDB accidentally resent me a set of their Uber high quality billet rear LED turn signals. I thought I would see if any Utards wanted them before I ship them back, as I don't need 2 sets.

The invoice is for $54, which is 10% off.

Please PM me or my BBM pin is 7AF1EFA7.
