Orange County - any good 'practice areas' nearby?

Recommended Posts

Anybody know of areas near to O.C. that are good for MX practice (not tracks, but for circle drills, jumps, ala Gary Semics' techniques). I'm frustrated because you really can't practice at the local tracks. But I haven't found any nearby open, legal areas that are suitable.

The Stoddard area is way too rocky and sandy.

Beaumont would be perfect but for illegal land use issues (tickets from the local law).

Where do you practice?

Heck Yeah there is....head on over to that secret spot....you know, we've talked about it on here before....right there off of Willow and Cherry in Signal Hill. If you're quick enough, you can get around Skyline Drive and down the backside of Hill Street long before the cops of the LBC roll up on ya :naughty:

      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?
