Carnegie on Valentines Day


It looks like Sunday I'm free. See if I can't find that shady spot under the tree.


The weatherman said it should be clear. :ride:


Now there are a few hills with my name on them. I've got a fresh top end and new rubber. Life is grand! :ride:

Got kicked out and it aint even Valentines Day yet. Havnt heard of that before, but I'm not surprised.

Bike's preped, I'm 100%, mother nature likes California again.

I know where the crack is. I've seen it many times and always used to think, :D don't go down there! Guess I was right!

The dirt should be prestine! I've got all the power that 300 can muster. If I can't climb those hills, it's nobody's fault but my own!


It's Rooster Time! :D

Definitely not treating myself to a day of riding on Valentines. The wife would say go, but don't feel its the right thing to do :ride:

Besides... Monday is a holiday :ride:

Great ride today, glad to see some of those Sac guy's come down my way to ride some of our small hills & SSS :thumbsup:Going again on monday,BBQ & beer and good times. Slyco was riding like a kid in a candy store :worthy:got kicked out at 630:ride::ride:

This was the 1st big test since my top end rebuild. :ride: It has much more power.

Ah, but there are still a number of hills I couldn't climb. It wasn't for lack of trying though.

Coming down one rutted out mess, I got out of balance at speed in one section, it was still slick & muddy in spots. I hit this rut and it swallowed my front tire, stopped it cold, went over the bars and landed on my head.

The grass was slick and the hill was steep, so I slid down on my head much too long. Now my neck is all jacked up. :ride:

      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?
