Mojave Ride Invite for March 16th-22nd 2011

Well its been another year and its time to do the desert again so Ill C&P the invite from last year with the new dates

-----

Mojave Ride Invite for March 16th-22nd

A group of us from Nor Cal are heading to California City to trailer camp the weekend of March 16th to the 22nd to ride our dirt bikes all over this beautiful area. Weve discussed the idea and wed like to extend an invite to the ADV rider community.

Its a no host event which means that youre responsible for the stuff you need. We often share but being self-sufficient is the norm.

Well have every kind of ride and riders from meandering rides around the local area to long days in the saddle going to exotic and often technical locations that may include ~100 mile days. (Gas may be available in towns we visit) The only thing asked of you is that you be honest about your ability and that you bring well maintained equipment capable of the ride(s) you choose to join.

Some of our group stays in the motels in the town of Mojave which is about 20 miles from where we camp. They usually hang out well into the night and leave their bikes, gear and whatever (tents, tables, tools etc) with us for safe keeping over night.

This is a great group of fun loving responsible grown-ups who like to have fun, so if you come, smiles and good attitudes are a must.

I hope some of you can make it for some or all of this fun. And if nothing else ride your street bike out for a day and or evening of fun.

The time spent off the bike were fun too.

Although Adam sure sucked at this part of it.

Hi Adam.

And then someone spilled a little gas.


But even with all the sucky parts we did have a great turnout.

Catfish clued me into this. I'd always wanted to come to his Xmas gig but this is better cos it will be warmer Anyone making the trip down from OR/WA who'd be interested in sharing the ride. Too long for solo (I know, wuss).

I'll probably be tenting it unless anyone has any extra room.

What's the status on this. The thread hasn't been active for awhile. Are the dates still good?

Steve and Catfish,

I'm gonna see if I can get a hall pass for this ride. I would probably join you Wed evening and ride through Saturday. Truck, trailer, dog, WR250R, and running shoes.

Good call moving the campsite to the other side of Tank 3. I like that side better. I know there is/was a little bit of cell service on that side. Hoping I can catch a little internet service = my biz partner will be none the wiser that I'm in the dez .

All, this a great ride with great folks. I've joined Mike, Steve, and crew a couple times in CalCity. Very friendly folks, wide variety of riders who know the area very well.

Rich

As much as I hate to say it my participation in this event is looking more doubtful by the day.

Im not officially out but it looks like a trip to bid my Father-in-law a final farewell is in the cards and is certainly the priority.

One thing is nice about it is that all 4 of his kids want to celebrate the Mans life so it wont be as depressing as it could otherwise be.

Hi Jason,

The dates are still good and this ride is ON! I have updated our Mojave-Madness file to include the location of the NEW campsite just south of the Borax Bill Park. Also several new tracks in a new GPX file.

However, I personally have a new conflict that is going to keep me away this year. I have been accepted into the only MSF RiderCoach Prep Class in California this year, and its scheduled for the last two weekends of March. Sorry.

We have 4-5 Northstars & friends planning to go at this point. Two of these will be celebrating their mutual St.-Patrick's-Day Birthdays, with one of them being his 50th. Should be a GREAT party Thursday evening! Several others are getting splinters in their ASS from the fence they are currently straddling.

Good to hear you might make it too Rich! I will update further info as it becomes available.

Catfish ...

You'll like doing it. I've been a Rider/Coach coming up on eight years now. Plus, it's easy money.

Also, thanks for the info on the ride.

I'm officially "out" for the reasons already stated.

Sorry about that.

I hope some of you will show up for this ride because it really is a great group of people to hang out and ride with.

Stinez..

Sorry to hear this on many levels. I know how you look forward to this trip every year and I know how you feel about family so you gotta do what you gotta do.

Sorry for your loss

I have an interest in this...seeing how I didn't make it to JV this weekend.
My weekends are subject to business activity. If by Friday evening it looks like Im clear...I'm in.

It's too bad no one came out this year. I guess the weather kept some away? Also, the group was at the old campground from two years ago, instead of the one they had listed on the website. Here's some pictures I took. There were only four riders on the Saturday ride. It got pretty cold later in the day.

Here's the campground to the north of Water Tank 3.





Galileo Hill.





The old mine.







The way to Randsburg.





Then some fun stuff.





Nice scenery along the way.



It was a good ride. Hopefully, next years turn out will be better.

Sorry I couldn't make it. This is a great location and would make a good basecamp for an ADV ride.
