Cal City Feb 24-26

Recommended Posts

A group from Lockheed Martin will be heading out to Cal City the last weekend in Feb to ride and blow stuff up. We will be camping north of 20 Mule Team Road on Esse Rd. Come on out, say Hello, and watch the night time pyrotechnics...

I ride that area almost every weekend, and that sounds like fun. As long as your not planning to blow up the prison for a jail break :)

Hey did you guys camp out at the Shadow Mtns. north of El Mirage between '84 and '86? If you did was one of your groups guys named "Florie" ? Ever ride with another guy on a blue IT-490? :)

Just curious, that group did the night time show thing. The rocket with the 8mm movie camera was kewl. Night riding with lasers, lots of bright flashes and so on...

Gotta go back to the mid-seventies to the time I camped and rode out at Shadow Mountain. In fact, my brother got lost out there in about 1974. We had to call out search and rescue, but that's another story...I thought the area was closed to bikes by the mid eighties. One of the crew that I rode with int he seventies/eighties did ride an IT, though...Dave Pichotta was his name. The last I talked to him, he no longer rode bikes.

Our pyrotechnics usually consist of both mortar launched "fireworks", and...don't try this at home...Sobe bombs or Mickey's bombs. Look for the fireballs in the night sky and you'll know where we are!

This is starting to sound interesting.

      So Im back.  Some of you might remember riding with me.  I had a 2013 500exe which was sold after a truck accident.  Now Im on a new FE501 which is giving me clutch and performance blues.  Picked up a used 2001 KTM for a spare bike on a whim and took it out Friday.  Wow I miss the simple 2stroke after dealing with a brand new FE501 issues...maybe Ill sell the 501 and stick with a cheap 2t.  Man that bike is fun...even with my old 225lb ass riding it around.
      Anyways Im back with a decent portable Drone that Ill be using to get some cool footage in the wide opens.  It does pretty good with object tracking and object avoidance.  Very happy with the results.  
      Looking forward to a meetup.  Im a little out of shape, but working on it and my drone skills.

      Hey all, 
      I'm looking at buying a 2004 Suzuki DRZ400EK or at least I think it's an EK according to Vin lookup websites, but it does not appear to have a kickstarter. I was told the bike was owned by a motorcycle dealer and that it has a current green sticker, and a California license plate but has not been registered for the streets since 2011. I want this as a dual sport but am not clear if the fact that it already has a plate means I am good to register it or if maybe they took away the ability to register it after it was plated, California loves to do that kind of stuff. Since the bike was owned by a dealer I would think they were up on the latest regulations in California, but who knows. Can anyone add any insight as to what I should look for on the bike itself like the carburetor, model numbers etc? Or do I just try my luck at the DMV?

      I am new to riding in the desert and the tiny gravel called sand around here. I run Dunlop AT-81's back home because they work well in a variety of conditions and don't climb mud ruts. The one thing I don't like is that with the narrower tread profile on the AT-81 it doesn't grip as well in hard leaning turns- since the tread doesn't wrap around the carcass as far as say, an MX-52 for example. This makes me wonder if I might "skate" less on the BLM trails if I ran a different tire. What tires are popular out here and why?
