Sorry to inform all of you that the race is canceled. The future of this race in jeapordy of never happening again if the BLM does not ease up on the financial and physical demands they have decided to implement on our club this year. I urge all of you to write the Ukiah BLM office with your feeling's and what this race means to you and your familys.

Here is the best description I found. This is from a post by Dave Pickett D36 President & LAO Office.

I posted the link where the description of reason is, so you can come to your own conclusion. It is on the D36 web site.


"OUTLAW CANCELLED" Information update.

This years Outlaw Hare Scrambles will not be held, and the date will be removed from the 2005 race year calendar. While unfortunate, issues remain that will be addressed by the #36 LAO. (#36 and BLM meetings)

Please understand that an error in communication between BLM/Cow Mt. AND the Sonoma County Sport Cycle Association [s.C.S.C.A.] exists and time restraints to hold the event on the selected day could not be met. NO specific blame is levied upon #36 club SCSCA or the BLM at this time. Federal rules concerning events at ALL BLM areas are in process of review and communication errors occured as to the requirements levied upon the club, and the BLM. It is unfortunate that our club and the BLM could not make this event happen by the Sanctioned Date, but confusion on both sides of the issue clouded the process for a successful event.

Efforts are being put forth by #36 & LAO to insure our clubs, and the BLM - are on the same page in the future. LAO has been in communication with BLM State OHV coordinator James Keeler in an effort to rectify this situation - this event - and future events so this does not happen again. For now, this race will not happen, but every effort is taking place to insure that future events will in fact take place.

SCSCA is still holding an event in Nevada later this year. It is very important that all XC riders attend this race and support one of our finest clubs.........................

Please ease off on the phone calls and e-mails to the BLM Ranger District, as this situation is not entirely their fault.

Dave Pickett #36 LAO

      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?
