California Saddleback Mountain/Maple Springs

Recommended Posts

This will be the start of a new thread for the area. Today, the gate is open and I am not riding. Conditions were dusty on our last ride, but the roads are in clear condition. Be careful during the (week end mostly) day, there are lots of people that come up in cars and trucks. If you would like to get a ride together for this area, this is the place to post and ask.

Snuck in a ride this morning. Up Silverado, over towards Beeks, double back to bedford and down into Corona for lunch at Tom's farms. Back up Indian Truck Trail to Santiago Peak, then back down the mountain. 80 miles, fun day.

Wow, It's so nice of you to invite people. Just who do you think you are? This is "MY" post not yours! 👍

Hey Paul, that sounds like a great ride. We were going to do that yesterday (kind of) but didn't get a chance to. Instead we just went out to Beeks then Sierra Peak and doubled back. One of the Fab four got a flat and turned back. The bees out at Beeks are mean, they were buzzing in my hair and one caught my finger as I tried to wipe it off so I could put my helmet back on. So, who did you go with, anyone I know?

LOL, I would have shot you a pm, but your last post(now deleted) said you were a no go for a Sunday ride. It was a shakedown ride for a buddy of mine who just picked up a plated 03 KTM 525 last week. Ended up meeting one other rider at the gate who was riding solo, so he came along as well. Ended up being the guy who gave me some fuel line when mine sprung a leak at the Beaumont dual sport ride. Small world! I'd be up for a night ride sometime soon, but the next couple of weeks are crazy for me with the daughter's graduation.

anyone planning a ride up the hill anytime soon?

I'll go on any evening 5:30 or later except for Wed., Fri., or Sunday b/t 4 and 8. If the wife takes the kids to BMX, some of those evenings are open. I can also do early crack of dawn Fri., Sat. and sometimes sneek in something in between (depends).

Just ride with Gary you won't need a light at all:lol:

HID coversions can be had on the cheap and make night riding pretty fun. The Vision X light pods work really well for 2bills. Lots of options to illuminate properly. Even a Cyclops Solstice alone works good (but I guess I am getting of of myself). I am sure you don't want to drop 100's or even 1000's on a light to use a few time a year........

Night riding is awesome and no one ever wants to so i only have the baja design head light to make my bike street legal. i am however looking into a better light that wont cost more than the bike.

I told you already zac. Meet me at my house, you ride your tard up and over (dirt) I'll ride mine around (tarmac) destination, Hells Kitchen. Eat, switch bikes and I ride your tard up and over (dirt) you ride mine around (tarmac) meet back up at my house. It will be like a race.🤣

Was that you heading up on Saturday last week when we were in the parking lot by the cafe?

I just don't think the tard tires are good for that dirt. Thats why you have to have two bikes, or two sets of shoes. 👍

No that was not me on Saturday. I get to work weekends. Every weekend 👍

As far as the tires and the dirt....Well, let's just say the bends on my clutch and front brake lever supports your argument 🤣
