Mojave Madness, Cal.City, Dec.27-Jan2

A few of us Northstars & friends are heading to the Mojave desert to camp & ride from Dec.27 to Jan. 2nd. We will be camping just south of the Water Tank #3 hill, east of Cal.City. Camping & riding info can be found here.

Most of our group rides are technical and require a well-prepped dirtbike with a 100-mile fuel range & an intermediate-skilled rider. There are plenty of 2-track & dirt/sand roads in these areas that newbies or big-bikes will find fun also, so bring your riding partner & GPS with you too.

It will be COLD at night, so bring more firewood or contribute to the firewood fund. I'm looking forward to my new Beta 520RS's first desert ride! Come join us for some great riding, camping, & New Year's Eve!!!

Photos & report from one of our previous spring Mojave rides.

Yes, you are close enough for a day ride from home. Get to our camp ~9AM in the mornings to see who is going where that day.

From Cal.City, we plan a ride each day into one or more of the nearby mountain ranges or riding areas; Jawbone Canyon, the Piutes, Dove Springs, the El Paso Mtns, the Rand Mtns, and the Fremont Mtns. And some of the local sights; Randsburg, the Husky Moto Memorial, Burro Schmidt Tunnel & Walsh Cabin in the El Pasos, McIvers Cabin above Dove Springs, the Pinnacles, and a few Petroglyph sites.

Maybe you just need a vacation?


Some of our favorite trails in the El Paso Mtns.


Yes, I'm really looking forward to riding the Beta in the desert. It handles better & steers more precisely than any motorcycle I've ridden. I've not felt the need for a steering damper yet. The deep desert sand might change my mind though. It was the availability of the 3.8-gal. tank this summer that clinched it for me. Then riding it on rocky Sierra singletrack & jeeps trails this summer. Its MAGIC!

At our Mojave ride link, you will find a GPX file with many waypoints & tracks. Look at the dark green tracks (mostly easy, some sandy washes, etc...). Bring a riding buddy & your GPS!
