Staging at Minneola Road/ I15. Rasor Rd. for lunch and fuel. Mostly easy but a lot of sand, a few challenges along the way. One really big downhill before lunch. Return to Minneola on the same side of the freeway, but mostly different trails. Probably 125 miles total.

The last time I did this loop it was doable by a 50 year old very good rider on a 690 SE.

Bingo on the route Tom! I'm an old 100's member like you. I met you back in 83 or 84 just before you moved to AZ and I believe you were living at Spring Valley Lake at the time. I live across the river from SVL in Apple Valley.

We had some fast cat's back in the day. Richard Mark, the Cartlege brothers Chuck & Mike, Don Urbanek, to name a few on their trusty Hodaka's. Back when the suspension travel was short & the whoops were really rideable

George, we need to meet up for a Caliente/Panaca Nevada ride this spring.

I have that area dialed in now.

We had a good trip to Pioche in May. Stayed north of Caliente. I am interested in an Ely area trip--maybe a week in the Fall. Going over to Parker, AZ 1 st week in Feb. ride that area, take in the BITD race and maybe scoot over to Wickenberg for a day or 2. Come on over.

I'd be up for a Caliente trip too.....and some of those secret Apple Valley trails!

AV would be a trip down memory lane thing. Moved from Wrightwood to AV in 1959. Victor Valley HS is all there was. Honda 50, Triumph Cub, etc. all over that area. Triumph twins, Bultacos in D37. Those were the days, blah, blah....

I have committed to another trip first weekend in February or I would love to go to Wickenburg. Great riding there.

I have plans to go Caliente in March. Really don't have dates penciled in yet because weather can be so unpredictable that time of the year. It will be a short notice thing for me but will stay 3-4 nights. I try to get to Caliente a few times a year. If not camping there I always stay at the Shady.
