    CA Compliant Question

    With the sticker you are good to go. They will not even look at the equipment just the sticker and the frame & motor numbers. Bruce

    E-start issue(s) on my 2017 500 RR-S

    Interesting, my first thought would have been that it's time for a new battery. Sounds like at 12.8-13.2 volts it is charging properly and if pushing the button results in a click under the seat, the button is OK. Bruce

    Eastern Kern County Onyx Ranch SVRA

    IMO Photo is likely misleading. The Oynx Ranch was the checkerboard BLM/Private lands that were accessed from Jawbone. The purchase was an effort to consolidate the ownership/jurisdiction/management of the area. Unfortuatly the State OHMVR Division did the buying and it's looking like they want to take away management of the Jawbone area from BLM. Some of you most likely have ridden some of this in the past thinking it was a part of Jawbone/Dove Springs. As Jawbone and Dove Springs have no legal singletrack hopefully OHMVR will see the need and develop/reopen some singletrack routes. Pay at the booth riding...... Bruce

    baja pictures

    "Prerunning" Were you entered in the race or just checking it out with others? Would suck to lose a rider just days before the race.

    Fuel mapping on a 2018 390s

    It's a 2018, have Frank's in Bellevue (or the he shop where he bought the bike) look at it under warranty. The 390's run very well (and strong) stock. Once you start messing with it the shop might be reluctant to proceed as a warranty repair. Bruce

    Beta Fork Diaries

    Cannon Racecraft makes the springs that Beta sells (possibly Rt as well), can custom wind anything you want and sells direct to public for less $. Bruce

    Dirtbike acceleration problems

    Not enough information but...... If it ran/worked fine before sitting awhile could be a blocked or partially blocked pilot jet in the carb. Bruce

    Natl Forest----streams

    Here is the MVUM for the Angelina NF. It is the legal controlling document for motorized travel on the Forest, a requirement of the 2005 Travel Management Planning Rule. Among other things the 2005 Rule via a public process: 1) Designated Motorized Routes 2) Prohibited motorized use other on Designated Routes (ie no cross county travel, no user/club trails) 3) Required publication of a Motor Vehicle Use Map https://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/fseprd548641.pdf A quick look, the MVUM seems to indicate there are no Designated Motorized MC trails in the Angelina. The routes shown being "Roads Open to Highway Legal Vehicles", some having a seasonal closure. It is extremely unfortunate that in many cases, on many forests, OHV users were all too often not fully engaged during Travel Management Planning. Many thought the FS staff would provide for OHV recreation, but often the enviros were much better organized and represented. Their voices were heard and often resulted in Forest Plans with greatly reduced or even no singletrack motorized trails. I have heard the that once Travel Management was completed for all the NFs in Arizona, not a single MC trail had survived (MC groups are work hard to correct the oversight). In your case the MVUM shows no Designated OHV routes and as a result non designated trails would be viewed as cross county travel and therefore illegal regardless of streams or roots. Here is a link to the FS web page with links to the MVUMs for other Texas Forests: https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/texas/maps-pubs/?cid=stelprdb5300457 Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but perhap during the next Planning cycle the OHV community can/will press for OHV recreation opportunities. Sucks, I know. Bruce
