    Elkins Sunday - Early Ride

    I'd like to join in. I've been wanting to try Elkins but wanted to go with some folks who know their way around.

    Potting Soil weekend at Elkins- time to pot some plants

    Never been to Elkins flat and would rather tag along with some folks who know their way around. Mind if I follow? BTW - Can anybody sum up how technical this type of ride is?

    Nor cal trails

    Broken shoulder?! Glad to hear she's getting back in the saddle so fast! I might be down for Mammoth on Sunday. I've never been riding there.

    Nor cal trails

    Prairie City is easy to get to and easy to ride. I take my daughter out there sometimes in the middle of the week, just to avoid crowds. They are closed on Wednesdays though. http://ohv.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=1221 According to the site, Red Sticker riding season there is October 15 through April 15, so you may want to consider buying a green sticker bike.

    No riding in Sequoia??

    I found this online. Haven't been there in person (yet). You'd need to call to confirm whether or not its open. http://www.fs.fed.us/r5/sequoia/recreation/ohv-osv/hl/hl_ohv_map.html Hope it helps!

    A Question For Visalia Riders

    Is it a "gray" area? Are there signs posted? My brother lives in Visalia and I was sort of looking for a place around there that I could ride trail. If you can, let us know where it is!

    Bikes for California

    I surely agree with you on the XRs. I bought an XR185 about 16 years ago and although it is beat to hell (was 11 years old when I bought it), I still like to ride it. The problem I have is that I'm 6'2" and 260 lbs. I feel like I'm riding with my knees in my chest (although the bike has impressive power for its size/age). I recently bought an '02 XR400R, for these reasons: 1) Every Honda I've ever owned has been very reliable (ATC90, CR125 Elsinore, XL125, XR185). 2) Green sticker bike. 3) It was in great shape and I picked it up for about 1/2 of the cost of a new bike. 4) The XR400 suits my height/weight. My 2 cents. Good luck!

    Saturday April 7 - GT/EF?

    Yeah, I've been through there a couple of times and I've got it mapped out. If I can make it, I'll be in a black Dodge Ram with a Honda XR400R. Hope to see you Saturday!

    Saturday April 7 - GT/EF?

    I've never ridden in this area before. I'd like to tag along, if I can get my scooter ready in time!

    Tulare, CA riding

    So true. I was born and raised in Porterville, my folks in Tulare/Visalia. About 25-30 years ago, Porterville was close to a lot of great places to ride (anyone remember Woody or Oildale?). I don't think there's many places left around there anymore. I was wondering if it is still possible to ride the Old Stagecoach road from Terra Bella to California Hot Springs? My dad and brother and I used to do that a lot! Oh, the good ole' days!!!

    O.T. Need help, daughters acne...

    My 2¢: I'm 38 (male) and I had significant acne problems duing my high school days. I too tried everything that was available to me (they've all been mentioned). After I turned 25 or so, the acne went away. For me personally, the most effective medicine was Retin-A. I found a link to some info: http://www.skinsite.com/info_retin_a.htm The worst side-effect was that you can damage your skin if you stay in the sunlight for very long.

    Best place for a beginner?

    Sounds like a plan! I will give you a shout next time I'm headed to Prairie City. I'll probably be going out there tomorrow morning.
