Awesome photos... that bring back great memories. Many a great weekend I have spent camping and riding in the Ridgecrest/Red Mountain area. It was always my favorite riding/racing spot. I stopped riding about 15 years ago and have been seriously been considering getting a bike again. These pics might just force me to get a new bike :thumbsup:

Ditto. Looks fun, and nice pics, thanks! Who's going to the Adelanto Grand prix? I'll be cruising my DRZ400 dual sport.

Seriously, I want to check out Ridgecrest soon. I live in Victorville. My mom owns the Steer N' Stein Restaurant across the freeway from the mall at Bear valley Rd. I always wonder if TTers eat there?

For all of you guys wanting to explore Ridgecrest... we have a standing ride (if I can ever get Dust Devil to show up for one). We meet at the Shell station on China Lake Blvd. It's easy to find.... just turn off 395 on Business 395 (china lake blvd) like you are going to Ridgecrest. The shell station will be a mile or so on the right as you come into town.

Rides are every Sunday morning at 9:00.

See y'all there.

Dust Devil,

Dude... I am going to Supercross Saturday night also. We have a ton of people going down early. We'll be tailgating in my RV. You are more than welcome to join us.

Cisco,

If you want to drive all the way down here for a ride, I'll make sure you have a place to stay... and it won't be the motel 6.

I've got your # Jim, I'll call ya to find out where you are parked and drop by for a cool one ....or 10. :thumbsup:

The best RV parking (away from the crazies and not patrolled by the cops as much) is off of Orangewood, enter the lot go straight, and then left when you can, you end up west of the stadium, its eaisy to get out from there as well.
