Spots to ride near paso Robles or San Miguel

I'm working right outside of paso in San Miguel, ca... I've seen some riders go into the river bed in San Miguel creek and ppl say to ride in there. Has anyone around the area ridden there?

I grew up in Paso Robles back in the late 60's early 70's. I also worked oil field construction at San Ardo in the early 80's after I got out of the Navy. Sadly most of the Central Coast was private property even back then when I was riding dirt bikes and I'm sure even more so these days. I don't think anyone will bother you riding in the Salinas river bed. We used to go to Kettleman City and Black Mountain (Pozo) or ride in the Almond orchards in Paso. Good luck Grasshopper!

pozo is the only legal place around there. You can ride in the river bed buts its technically not legal. pozo can be pretty fun when the weather is right. 


Just about everything around here is private property and has been for a LONG time

Ocotillo Wells in the summer?

      I don’t ride as often as I used to (every few months now) After dealing with ethanol laced gas turning to shit a few times (I always treat it with ethanol type fuel preservative), is there anywhere in SFV or Simi Valley or nearby that sells real fuel?
      next step will just be draining tanks before I pack the bikes away

      I'm headed down from Northern California in late April/May with my wife and our two dogs. We're just trying to have a relaxing vacation with our dogs and go around and eat at some good places / beaches etc. We were thinking LA but even as far as San Diego sounds good. Wife gave me the a-ok to bring my bike so I can sneak out out a bit to ride. Any suggestions on where to stay?

      Trying to buy an older yz125 w a green sticker. I came across a 2004 that is green sticker. Per the owner "CA used to do a lottery thing on a certain year and bike and it was the 04 125 that got the green sticker". 
      I am gonna confirm the VIN, but was wondering if it's in fact true that CA issued green stickers with a lottery system for 2003 and newer bikes?
      I tried searching and couldn't find anything. 
      Thank you all for you advice.

      I just picked up a 2018 YZ250X and need to do my break in. How gnarly is Rowher Flats after rains like we just had? I'm thinking about heading there Sunday. I moved to LA last year and I've only been there 3 or 4 times, but so far I enjoy the riding there more than most of the "day trip" locations.
      Not the biggest fan of Hungry Valley, but I imagine HV is ok despite the rain this week.
      Side note, how bad does the road in to RF get after weather like we just had?
