So I went to go riding at Metcalf in Santa Clara and it was closed because of the rain. I know its small but I never have ridden there before so I was pretty bummed that I wont be able to. Ohh well. At least I got some good tools on sale at 4am at sears!

Bummer - Must'v drizzeled just enough to get snotty and slippery. Try to check it out again. There are alot of hidden singletrack trails that are fun.

If they closed it, it for a good reason. If it's wet it's like riding on greasy snot. An hour south and you could have at Hollister Hills. Top of Hollister is sandy soil. Wetter the better. Lower field is sticky slick clay. That will close lower field.

I have been to Hollister, but not on a dirt bike. I just wanted to go ride for an hour or two while the family was out shopping. Better than sitting around watching TV. Plus I dragged the bike down to SJ from Sac to ride. But no worries. I also was by myself and the fog was super bad so I figured it wasnt worth pushing my luck.

      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?
