Memorial Day Weekend Amazing Weather

As you can see this weekend has the makings of turning out to be EPIC in the California High Desert. My gang has always made it the last weekend of riding. Brave the heat by riding early. Getting a spot in the shade to drink beer in the afternoon, then go inside turn on the AC watch a movie, get in a little nap before getting up and starting dinner just to have the sun go down and cool things off for a nice evening.

Now if you haven't checked the weather you should. Highs in the 70s this time of year......Oh my goodness. On top of that so many people stay home anyway, add to that the guys who cant afford the gas, this has the makings of one of the best weekends of the year. So if you like I are going out to play in the dirt we will see you there. But if your wife made you stay home since its too hot and gas in $4.00 a gal I just hope she doesn’t go to the Mall and spend all that money she didn’t want you to spend on gas. DR

As soon as my wife says I can't go riding because of gas prices...I'll be calling a lawyer

You know, I had figured on avoiding the desert over the MD weekend due to crowds. But I'm wondering if the cost of gas is keeping people at home? :thumbsup:

Its already happening. We were out at Moose Anderson days last month. Rode from the white pipe to Kelso valley back over to the edge of Dove springs and back...close to 45 miles and did not see one other rider. Few people camping to. Gas up the Rig and go!

      I don’t ride as often as I used to (every few months now) After dealing with ethanol laced gas turning to shit a few times (I always treat it with ethanol type fuel preservative), is there anywhere in SFV or Simi Valley or nearby that sells real fuel?
      next step will just be draining tanks before I pack the bikes away

      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?
