California SEND IN COMMENTS ON JOHNSON VALLEY - BRC alert and suggested comments

Recommended Posts

Here is an alert and background info on JV for those of you who want to send in a quick letter

Blog with info and BRC alert



HQ wanted to make sure riders knew that BRC just sent out an action alert today (with suggested comments) asking you to send in comments regarding the Marines at 29 Palms DEIS.

New BRC Alert with Suggested Comments and Overview


Since all land-use decisions are political decisions (an axiom here at HQ) including the proposal by Marine leadership to give OHV the boot from Johnson Valley, HQ is urging that you send a copy of your comments to your elected officials. Remember that Congress must review and approve the project AFTER the planning process is complete.

Here is a link where you can find those elected federal officials


It only takes a few minutes to cut-n-paste in some suggested comments and/or add a few personal comments of your own. HQ already used info on the alert and sent in comments to the Corps and elected Members of Congress.

Please make sure that this info gets forwarded to your OHV network. Thanks in advance for your efforts to keep JV open for OHV use.

This is a big one, people. Time is running out QUICKLY. If we lose JV, we'll never get it back. What the Marines are asking for is much more than what they need.

We need SUBSTANTIVE comments sent in regarding the DEIS, immediately. We really need everyone who has ever used JV, or ever plans to ride/race in the future to help out on this one.

I went to a workshop last weekend on how to write effective comments for this particular situation, put on by people who have been waging these wars, firsthand. I was surprised to not see anyone from BRC there.

We have summarized it pretty thoroughly on this thread (actually it's work in progress); http://www.district37ama.org/forums/showthread.php?t=45440

We currently have OHV war's on (at least) two fronts, and in the immediate future- THIS IS THE CRUCIAL ONE.

      So Im back.  Some of you might remember riding with me.  I had a 2013 500exe which was sold after a truck accident.  Now Im on a new FE501 which is giving me clutch and performance blues.  Picked up a used 2001 KTM for a spare bike on a whim and took it out Friday.  Wow I miss the simple 2stroke after dealing with a brand new FE501 issues...maybe Ill sell the 501 and stick with a cheap 2t.  Man that bike is fun...even with my old 225lb ass riding it around.
      Anyways Im back with a decent portable Drone that Ill be using to get some cool footage in the wide opens.  It does pretty good with object tracking and object avoidance.  Very happy with the results.  
      Looking forward to a meetup.  Im a little out of shape, but working on it and my drone skills.

      Hey all, 
      I'm looking at buying a 2004 Suzuki DRZ400EK or at least I think it's an EK according to Vin lookup websites, but it does not appear to have a kickstarter. I was told the bike was owned by a motorcycle dealer and that it has a current green sticker, and a California license plate but has not been registered for the streets since 2011. I want this as a dual sport but am not clear if the fact that it already has a plate means I am good to register it or if maybe they took away the ability to register it after it was plated, California loves to do that kind of stuff. Since the bike was owned by a dealer I would think they were up on the latest regulations in California, but who knows. Can anyone add any insight as to what I should look for on the bike itself like the carburetor, model numbers etc? Or do I just try my luck at the DMV?
