It's not the greatest riding.....very compacted, narrow trails, can't get up to speed on a bigger bike. It's more a place to take the kids in my opinion. :)

well that's a bummer. I heard you can ride trails from Fallbrook up to there. Oh well, i'll probably still do it....i'm just stubborn like that :) . I won't be able to say that nobody told me so!

Every sunday morning!!!

I ride the Priller on clean summer mornings when the cops arent about.

The GS when the weather isnt so good or when doing a casual ride up to Santiago Peak. (inte in forground)

and will take the dirtbike up to Wildomar when i want to do a 1/2 day.

but unfortunetly, they close Wildomar for 4-5 days after it rains due to trail erosion. The place is way too small for the traffic it gets so its not a lot of fun unless you get up VERY early in the morning in the summer. Even then, you gatta keep it mellow due to oncomming traffic.

But Killen trail does go all the way through. I have done that on the GS twice now and its a fantastic road. Its paved (or was until the recent rains). And if one was so inclinded, you can ride from San Diego county all the way to YorbaLinda/Corona along that road.

So, if your up for riding, i live on the OC side and hit Ortega with some regularity on Sunday mornings. This time of year im on the GS so keep an eye out.

I drove my truck from the top, south down some fire roads and poped out in(what turned out to be) Fallbrook. So I know I CAN get through, but for now it's sitting on my "list" as well. :)

      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?
