Wow it's not like Mike to worn off a rider? Normally he would encourage the noob rider and then charge up his extra batteries for his camera?

Sundays route will depend on the turn out. Joel and a few other will probably do the standard route. I Might lead a smaller intermediate/adv group and maybe Noel and some other can take the Adv group. A lot will depend on the turn out.

We could all work are way up cleghorn around and up to silverwood to Pinnacles some can continue thur Pinnacles and work up to BB others can go up to Grass Valley and work are way up to Big Bear then on to PT. Mostly dirt but will have to hit a little HWY from Arrowhead to GV.

Sunday looks like a strong group is wanting to do lot of single track stuff

But this area has lots to offer and should not turn others away. My suggestion is that we all meet at Pinnacles staging area at 8:AM and break up into groups then. I know Joel and other are not planning on riding the crazy stuff so I'm sure others can group up with him.

FYYFF and I will be leaving LB by 8pm Friday evening for a night ride to camp. Taking Cleghorn to 138 to Pilot Rock trail to Lake Arrowhead then slabbing it towards Green Valley and back to dirt at 3N16 / Green Valley road to Crab Flats campground. Setup camp and wait for the Saturday arrivals and head to Pioneer town.

Those of you interested are welcomed to join us. This will be BIG bike friendly on regular fire roads.

get it up to operating temp on a 15 minute ride then park for 2 hours to let it cool completely. do this 2-3 times, the heat cycle is good for break in purposes. change the oil and your good to go.


or just ride it normal. either way should be fine depending on who you ask.

So I get that the plan is to go through Big Bear on the way to PT. Is the plan to go through Big Bear on the way back as well?

Where are you?

I was planning on riding a Suzuki DR-Z 400 that I keep in Big Bear. It's the small bike. I might ride the big bike (GSA) if my wife doesn't want to go to Big Bear that weekend.
