question to the LA guys here

I'm visiting LA from Denmark for a little vacation

Hope some of you could give me a hint, on what's worth to see for a motocross fan from Denmark, I'm only staying here until sunday so don't have plenty of time :thumbsup:

give me a little advise on what you think is nice as a motocross racer from Europe to see. SO-CAL is kind of the world center of MX :lame:

go down to Hermosa and Manhattan beach about 5 miles south of LA airport and see all the hot California beach girls.

You'll be dissapointed with your current idea of LA's tracks....go to carlsbad, or have a friend hook you up at the track at Edwards AFB...supercross talent....countryboy knowledge. Or, search online for a MX'er named MXJONNY312, he's got a killer track in the TehaChapi Mtn's....But you better be worthy....

Jonny...luv ya bro.... :thumbsup: Maybe now you'll get that notoriety you've been hiding from........... :lame::p:bonk:

Catch a Baseball game. Go to Magic Mountain and ride the coasters. Rent a Harley :thumbsup::lame::p Find a gokart track that rents karts, A really cool indoor place in Bakersfield (too far for you to drive but maybe LA has somthing similier)

There is an indoor track in LA as well.

Ton's of things to do down there. As stated, rent a harley and take it up Mullholland, stop at the rockstore, go up to Neptune's and take the 1 back to LA. Awesome. There is Newcombs up in the Angles Mountains as well. Sportbikers.

Edwards is hard to get on cause it is military. BUT, there is always LACR and the Sat. night races about 80 miles from you. Don't want to watch the dirtbikes, turn around and watch the grudge match drag races. LACR track has lights.

Have fun with it.

Troy Lee and also Pro Circuit in Corona have cool things to see.Glen Helen Raceway is about 30 minutes from there.Kawasaki test track during the week.Pole position indoor kart track in Corona is a good one also.

Now how about getting me some parts for my Mercedes from your home town? :thumbsup:

huntington beach, santa monica, venice, hollywood are all kinda touristy stuff to see.

If you are interested, there are two motocross tracks to see. One is Lake Elsinore and the other is Competitive Edge. On the weekends there are some very good riders there. You might want to go to Pole Position if you go to Corona, and try their indoor cart racing. If you were staying another week, you could have seen the McGrath Invitational. Whatever you do, have a great time.

It's the motocross things I'm looking for, I like to see the differens from europe to here. Compeditive edge sound like a good place to go just for a training day, to see if anyone show up. :thumbsup:

If thats the case,then you will want to be at Glen Helen tomorrow.Thursday always has some fast pro's riding.

Yep. Glen Helen on a thursday... definately where the fast riders go.

Do you want to see the motocross track most like what you have at home, or the most different?

Magic Mountain or even Disneyland is a good 1-2 day spend. Malibu beach for lunch and watch surfing. The Rock Store was an excellent recommendation (nothing to do with motocross). Motocross tracks are like bowling alleys. The makeup and the wetness of the surface might be different, but if you're making a trip to So. Cal and making the primary purpose to look at MX tracks, you're making a big mistake.

I grew up there, and every few years when I go back to visit, my folks see me for 1-2 hours a day maybe. Most of the time I'm outside somewhere taking in some great stuff.

      I'm headed down from Northern California in late April/May with my wife and our two dogs. We're just trying to have a relaxing vacation with our dogs and go around and eat at some good places / beaches etc. We were thinking LA but even as far as San Diego sounds good. Wife gave me the a-ok to bring my bike so I can sneak out out a bit to ride. Any suggestions on where to stay?

      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?
