Central Coast D/S riders


Looking for some more central coast ds riders to hit local trails and do some adventure D/S camping. Me and a buddy have been doing some sweet rides and are looking for some more adventures.....We both live in Lompoc but were down to hit Slo or SB county.

I live in Santa Maria and do several dual sport outings each month in addition to using my 690 to commute to Buellton. I usually ride with a friend who has a te630 and another friend with a drz400. I'll be riding the D37 Barstow to Vegas dual sport ride the saturday after thanksgiving if you care to expand your riding venues.

What local trails have you guys been riding? I don't know of anything (legal) close to Lompoc? We've been torturing ourselves on nightrides lately and may go out again on sunday evening after I install my grip heaters (I finally had enough of wearing 2 pairs of gloves and still having purple fingers!)

PM me or reply back here if you want to meet up!

we might be planning another Carrizo Plains ride soon too


I am also in Lompoc and ride an XR400. We are heading out next week to Spangler for the Thanksgiving holiday. But, I would be up for some local stuff.

bumping this old thread...

check out the Cal Poly Penguins' Hi Mountain Dual Sport ride happening on the 29th of this month: http://www.cppenguinsmc.com/

      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?
