Hey Joel, just came across some interesting info regarding the Race Track in DV. Good reference material for next year's Noob Rally.

i read most campgrounds in big bear will be closed after oct. 12th.

i have been weighing the dates and camp ground availability.

september will still be hot! riding to pioneer town could get toasty.

however, by late september or early october, the weather should start getting comfortable and makes desert riding bearable. let's call this good bye high altitude and welcome to the desert.


i have reserved a remote campground on the south side of the lake and next to a dirt road. the camp is $120/night + fees.

the campground is good for a lot of campers and several trucks. we can only have @ 4 trucks and the rest would be motorcycles. sorry, this is not meant to be a big event. 2 of us are trucking, we can haul bikes and 2 riders to the campsite.

i only need 10 participants, easy going and responsible. maybe 12 depends on the person's character.... no cross crountry riding, will only stay on open roads and trails!

we will have bar-b-q on saturday night.

each person contributes $30, saturday dinner included.

paypal will guarantee you a spot.


i have received 7 PMs. yes, i read them all. PM me again and i will give you my paypal account.

thanks.

ride

Hello,

Rode from my house and met up with Alan (husky 511), and Tom, (wr250r).
Rode almost identical roads as you guys on Mon and Tues. I am much slower so I was sweep. Did not ride through the water though, where was that? Did ride on a rocky trail, all rocks, for about 3/4 mile, but came to a really tough spot.
We started piling rocks up to go over steps. Tom went up and said it was all of the same. Probably worried about me not making it and he would be right. Tree to the right had tire marks all over big roots from rock crawler of some kind or riders way better than me. Had a great ride up, there and back. 413 miles.
Todd, thanks again for the yellow Ortliebs as they matched my yellow drz.
What a fashion statement.
Alan and Tom are great to ride with and great guys. Meeting Alan at 9:00
tomorrow at Newcomb's on the Ambo. Join us??

hi dave, that's a lot of killer miles!....

i know exactly where that is, past crab flats campground. that is one gnarly section and good to hear you all made it through.

if you take the left turn, that will take you to the river crossing.

here's from a ride from 2012.

According to Joel. “ Its only a few rock”



Black Diamond rated trail 3N34


Entering to "The point of no return" zone.


Ed got stuck and here i come to help



Some more of the interesting moments

ride

Hello Joel,

Well, met Alan at Newcombe's and had a nice ride over to Wrightwood then home. Left gas on the Ambo for a week and was flooded so took Burgman 650 as all tar today. Alan was on his Connie, smooth and fast.
The ride in Big Bear was 3n69 and was not near as tough as 3n34.
My fat ass and wobbly knees wouldn't want any part of that trail. Would like to watch you guys go up and down though. Great riding.
Sure like to ride through Pine trees, dirt or tar.

That's looks familiar. I think the first time I rode with Bill, CT, he told me about it so I asked to go take a look. I looked.

Then I started up (like a giant moron on the mighty xt250) , made it to just before you hit the big rocks, realized I needed to change my line, turned too tight, braked, slid backwards and dumped.

Bill, deadpan: "that was an aggressive turn".

For a little intermission I hope the OP does not mind a bit of advertising a little ride/camp thing I am setting up in the NorCal/Nevada area. Plumas County to be exact. Post over here...

Finally talked a friend of mine into stepping into this insanity we call Adventure riding. So he went out and found some riding gear(nothing to fancy but decent) and found a decent used 1987 XL600R.

So for less than $2000(and they threw in these awesome boots for FREE!) and no riding experience he was able check this all out.



After completing his MSF course and getting the bike and himself legal we finally got the chance to head out and do some real riding. Being stationed out near Barstow we headed out and checked out the Calico Mountains early one morning as the thunderstorms came rolling in quickly. Saw 5 desert tortoises more than I've ever seen in a day. (Shy lil' guys gave them plenty of space)



Next two trips have been up to Big Bear on two separate weekends but in his words "I've seen more in two rides up to Big Bear than I've seen in the last three year I've been stationed here."

Enjoy the pics and check out our Mis-Adventures up the Mountain, Bill has a username on here but it escapes me at the moment. Kickstart seemed to work as he got quite the workout restarting his 20+ year old bike.

Dirt from Barstow to Big Bear

Hope to see you all on the trails
