  • Public Notes road closed due to pavement buckle. traffic is being detoured on to sr-188. phoenix traffic can take sr-188 south to us-60 west.

Best you can do is stage at Pobrecito and ride up from there.

Thanks Carl.......

Pobrecito is a good alternate. Lock your vehicle and look out for all the Chinese quads.:confused:

Thanks Carl.

This is an obvious cover up...A ufo has crash landed in the desert and the government is scrambling to clean up the debris..Watch out for little green men.

If it weren't for a short snip on the news last night I would not have known either.

While we're on conspiracy theories I'll see yours and raise that the whole alien space craft crash has something to do with Rolling Rock's attempt to shoot their logo onto the full moon last night with a laser.

We were out there today and the Forest Service will be limiting the number of people allowed in the Rolls. Today it was a mad house because of the closure and tomorrow would be just as bad.

Its heartening to know that our government officials have this under control..Ill sleep good tonite.

I guarantee I am more cynical than you, especially when it comes to the gov. But in their defense, it was a zoo. Eveyone that wanted to go to 4 peaks/lower&upper syc/porbecitos/rolls/etc/ were all crammed into porbecitos. Not to mention the lake was also full, and boats weere waiting in a que to get in the water....It was a place to avoid, and that goes for tomorrow too...Luckily I was with some "Rock Stars", who happened to have the Forest Service hookup or we would not have been able to ride our street legal bikes into the Rolls area at all. It was CLOSED to anymore traffic.....

On a dual sport you can get to lower Syc by going back through the housing on the West side of the road before the Bush. From there you could play on the Sycamore side or get up to the Four Peaks road and head for the top.

      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?

      Yo kids ,
       we just did our annual run to blind Indian today and the other fun stuff the area has to offer , conditions were purely awsome after the storms last night, the #211 trail needs some activity , doesn't look like shes getting used too much , we kicked a bunch of rocks off ,broke some nasty dead branches , etc , still passable , the 1st uphill with switch backs has been storm washed exposing aggregate but thats not suck a bad deal ( traction was pretty good ) , she needs to see more riders ...put this on your agenda, grab some like minded trail hoppers and lets keep this trail fresh

      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?
