We will be there with about 6 rigs. Brother-in-law, in-laws, friends...

We have a Silver Explorer with a 16ft Titan toy hauler. Im riding an RMZ450 and the wife has a white LTZ400 quad.

Should be a great weekend. It gets pretty busy around camp but out on the trails it doesnt seem bad at all.

Presidents weekend is a big one ( like any other 3 dayer ) for high dez. If you don't like crowded and loud camp maybe rethink where to camp. Other than that still a good time.

Like previously stated, any 3 dayer is crowded and cop infested. That said, PARTY ON!!! The Man will sometimes run sobriety checkpoints and such. Kern County Sheriffs have a Hummer, many quads, and a buggy being built. The BLM and State park guys are usually in their SUVs and pick-ups. CHP cruises in on occaision, and ALL agencies have taken to remote surveillance w/ binocs as of late. A few of their pet peaves (besides having even a 1/2 ounce of beer in you) are:

Glass in your fire pit

Pallets

Fireworks

Riding w/o helmet

No valid green/red sticker

Riding closed areas

People having fun

Anything they can come up with

It isn't usually like this, but the big weekends bring 'em out like flies on you know what...

I reckon I'm the, "You know what."

See you there! :):p:D:o:D:)

The Hummer looks cool, but couldn't even make it up the easiest play hill at the Dove bowl. (he had the tires rock hard & didn't know how to drive :o ) No way it'll keep up w/ a bike. Yeah, it's getting pretty silly lately, mostly on the big weekends.

They love to hassle working folks. Go figure :) My attitude towards them lately has been... :D

Cheers Mate! :p

I wouldn't say that it's "bad", and there is certainly no reason to "lay low". You just need to know the rules and play accordingly. It's still a fantastic riding area where you can do everything from the easy to the extreme. (I don't do extreme anymore :p ) If you keep your wits about you while on the bike, you can party like a rock star if you so choose.

Hey Whoya,

When we do the gas bombs, potato cannons, fireworks, etc...It's outside of camp using the buggies and the night bikes :o:D:) And not on the "big" weekends!

Yeah i probably wont lay low but makes a little more concerned. The feds probably dont even remember me. I got you pm if i can figure out where your camp is i'll drop by. i'll be on a 2002 xr400 wearin a orange helmet

Sounds good Man :) Oh yeah, one more thing...Don't ride the paved section of Jawbone Canyon Road unless you're dual sported. You can go just as fast in the wash anyway :)

That's a tough call Unk. The low pressure system (cutoff low/ dicey to predict) has stalled off the coast and thrown off the initial forcast. J-bone should be O.K. (chants, prayers, & anti-rain dances...) Usually a few showers are welcome, because of dust reduction and increased traction, however...It's the Dez my Brother. Come on up with you and yours...Smiley faces and good attitudes prevail :) Come what may! :p:):D

      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?
