Thanks for letting me tag along! What a great time of year to ride this beautiful state of ours. Here's the route I wound up taking to break in the 990.



Google Map Link: https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid...26876,1.234589

Ended up clocking out @ 280 miles.



Note to self, big bike take longer to slow down.......................



Spectacular views!!!!!



When I got home, my pit crew was awaiting!!!!

I'm looking for a back entrance to the Renaissance Fair.

This, off Ironwood, looks promising.

http://goo.gl/maps/nUuk5

About 7.5 or 8 miles to the southwest corner of the parking lot at the fair.

Anyone ridden this area before and can comment on restrictions on use and conditions of the road?

Bulldog Canyon Kid Ride 3/29

I am taking my son and some of his friends to Bulldog Canyon on Saturday morning. We will be cruising from the south gate at about 5mph.

Get your permits and bring your kids...

This sounds like a good group pace for me :)

Might join you if that's ok.

Who knows, I might even show the kids one of my stunts

Use this map to get some useful information about who manages the land you intend on visiting. Then check with the appropriate land managing agency with your questions.

hope it helps,
Jeff
Awesome map. I'm always looking around for new stuff to ride so if you have any more of these types of maps they are always appreciated. Thanks.

Hopefully our GIS, once rolled out, will be useful to OHV users since that is our focus :)

Come out and play. You can always buzz back and forth.

I think you need to keep posting as long as it doesn't jeopardize your job.
Your posts are very informative and give average joes like me some insight
into what happens regarding OHV issues. I still take off road access for granted but I'm learning, real slow like.....
