Nice thunderstorm flow heading for Big Bear area each afternoon over the next few days. Building nicely over White Mountain right now. Tomorrow could be epic after 12 noon.

BTW Rich I ended up with the same rear tire. Holy crap its loud!


I'll keep checking the thread.
Dave, I'm riding my little girl's bike. The 990 is still down waiting for suspension to get back from Seattle.

Let's see who else might be around, I'm yet to do one of Matt's Lytle Creek tours

Hi Todd,

Can't ride Sunday but I'm heading out tomorrow around mid day to try and catch wet dirt on the mountain.

Not sure if going to drive up and unload at the big parking at the convention center in Big Bear or just ride up. If the cloud cover pushes into the desert by late morning I'll ride up .Weather is supposed to be very active tomorrow so very good possibility of wet trails after lunch.


Right now big thunderheads on the mountain and trying to push this way. Very hot and humid here in Apple Valley.

What a ride day yesterday.! Knew the storms would hit in the afternoon so my son and I hung out at the house, got some chores accomplished, watched 4 epic Motos from Red Bud, and checked weather radar every half hour or so. Watching the big storm cell developing over the foothills had us stoked for an local shred. As the cell moved east about 2:30 we knew it was time to go. Hit the staging area at 3:00 pm, saw Ricks Jeep and a couple of pickups. Trails started out normal dusty, 3 miles in damp, 5 miles in wet and hero dirt the rest of the evening. Even had running water in some of the drainage areas. Really nice to find a special 10 mile trail that we scouted a year ago is untouched and still hidden, but now it has some nice little berms to rail.

It was a great ride with youngest son Harry. Did 50 miles, all foothills, back to the truck at 7:30, Rick and the boys were already loaded up and out.

work work work 4th of July wknd

Big Todd, Rich, Matt and Dave and everybody else, sorry I've been off the radar. I overtime whored myself out to work this weekend. As the saying goes...No money, no honey. I'll have some vacation days in about 2 weeks, so me and Jr will be riding a lot before he flies back to school. After that, I'm doing the Tahoe adv ride toward the end of August. Still on the fence about the KTM rally. 80% sure I'll go to Laguna Seca/ Superbike next weekend. But again, sorry I haven't kept in touch. Damn bills.

Thinking about a saturday night (7/12) night ride

Big bike, mountains and desert, degree of dirt depending on dust.
Late eve 'til the wee hours, while the full moon is up.

Well... I hope so

Got bogged down in some chores this mornin', then went to check over the 950 and found a problem that needs some attention

Working on it now, should be fixed in a couple hrs

Aiming for an 8~9 pm departure time.
Where is a good meeting place?
Anybody else interested?

I'm in for the next full moon if you're down for a little bike version.

Have a good one tonight.
