It's about time for a night ride DD, after the HD250 this weekend I'd be up for it.

See ya round.

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:


Wow Ive always wanted to explore that area. Ill ring ya sometime and you can show me around :thumbsup:

that looks like some sweet riding,there is alot of stuff like that here in reno, and virginia city foothills, i woulk like to ride there, where exactly is that?

Wow Ive always wanted to explore that area. Ill ring ya sometime and you can show me around :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.


I am riding next sunday jim...I dont know if I will be back in town by 9 though, I am going to the supercross on sat night so I might not leave LA until 7 or 8 AM sun morn.

Id have to wake up perty dam early to make that ride. Id have to leave my house at.......

about 1:30 AM to make it there by nine. And then Id get home at...ohh midnight Sunday night.

Someday Ill take you up on that :thumbsup:

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.


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.

      Trying to buy an older yz125 w a green sticker. I came across a 2004 that is green sticker. Per the owner "CA used to do a lottery thing on a certain year and bike and it was the 04 125 that got the green sticker". 
      I am gonna confirm the VIN, but was wondering if it's in fact true that CA issued green stickers with a lottery system for 2003 and newer bikes?
      I tried searching and couldn't find anything. 
      Thank you all for you advice.

      I just picked up a 2018 YZ250X and need to do my break in. How gnarly is Rowher Flats after rains like we just had? I'm thinking about heading there Sunday. I moved to LA last year and I've only been there 3 or 4 times, but so far I enjoy the riding there more than most of the "day trip" locations.
      Not the biggest fan of Hungry Valley, but I imagine HV is ok despite the rain this week.
      Side note, how bad does the road in to RF get after weather like we just had?

      Anybody heading out to Ridgecrest on Sunday?  Looks like rain in the forecast Saturday.  I got froze out last weekend, would like to get out there especially after the rain.

      Where can I find the people that organize trail maintenance weekends for the areas North and East of Lake Arrowhead?  I tried San Bernardino National Forest but they sent me to a guy who uses volunteers to set up booths and hand out flyers.
