Sounds great, but what about the rain? I really want to ride, but I'd be counting on the more experienced guys to call the ball as to location (or feasibility in spite of weather).

when it's wet I try to stay away from riding on the street, I think a trip to Gorman would be just right. the rain should keep most of the morons away, the trails are just epic when wet, and help is not too far off if you get into trouble. I might take my CRF450 and go to the MX track for few laps and then hit some of the trails. but I'm open to all ideas.

How far is Gorman? I don't mind trucking my bike out. Is it noob friendly? I'm up for learning anything, but not trying to climb cliff faces or clear doubles my first time out...

I won't go all the way to Gorman from the Redlands area, but I've been there (Hungry Valley SVRA) and can tell you it's fairly noob-friendly. A lot of the trails are very soft, though so it's like riding in sand. The trails up through the hills are pretty cool though. They're marked according to difficulty, so just pay attention to that and you'll be fine. If I was going to go to Gorman, though, I would bring my ATV. But at 12 mpg and traffic, and a 2+ hour drive each way, I'll have to pass. :)

I-5 north just before Frazier Park, It's got a little of everything. The MX track would be a little too much for the BRP, but on a lighter bike is a lot of fun, and I'm usually the slowest guy out there. The biggest plus is that it is not too far from civilization, and help is close at hand should you need it. If Gorman (Hungry Valley) is too far, Cleghorn, or Stoddard Wells, should be fun with lots of easy sections. It be nice if someone familiar with the area could join in. Ben99R1 where are you?
Also some guys were looking to go to Rowher Flats for a mud ride on Sunday. check out R-F breakfast club.

I'd be up for another Cajon Pass area ride, rain or shine.
Plenty of noobish roads to choose from, even more fun when wet.
Cleghorn can get a little slippy slimey. Baldy Mesa turns to pudding with enough agua.
