    San Diego area rides-look here

    I doubt I'll ever sell my 300. After a frame up rebuild I'm way too attached to it. If you're looking for a Oregon plated 300 (or 200) they pop up quite often on Craigslist.

    San Diego area rides-look here

    Hey there San Diego Area riders. I'll be moving down to the San Diego Area in the future and I was wondering what the logistics are for going down into Baja for a weekend. Is it a huge hassle to cross over the border? How far south do you have to go before you can unload the bike and ride? In reading some the San Diego Posts on ThumperTalk it seems most have to go East to get to riding area's and that most are at least an hour away. If this is a correct assumption (riding to the east takes an hr minimum) how does going east compare to heading south into Baja. On another topic... I currently live in Central Oregon and ride a plated KTM 300. While we have a lot of desert riding I prefer single track in the woods (which we have a fair amount of). From my place I ride a mile and hit dirt. That being said, I'll probably be getting rid of the 300 before I move down there. Sucks, as I really like the bike but it isn't the greatest desert bike and 2 strokes from what I've read aren't even doable in most places (although the very first pic in this thread is a 300?). Anyway, any input would be appreciated. Looking forward to my future move and exploring a new to me area. Cheers, Brian

    Camping at Washougal

    Thanks for the info guys. Glad I'm not the only one that thought that dudes reply was odd. I was hoping he just had a weird sense of humor. Turns out not. See ya'll at the races. Cheers

    Washington Camping at Washougal

    Hey all, question regarding camping at Washougal.. I hear they don't allow you to bring beer into the campground area, is that true? I don't want to buy a bunch only to have to throw it out at the gate. Not looking to bring beer into the venue, just to the campground area. If they don't allow it I'm camping somewhere else. Any suggestions for decent camping within 30-45 minutes? I'm driving up from Bend and don't have to time to explore around for a campsite. Thanks in advance.

    Bend Area Riders

    With the recent rain I'd go hit up Cline Buttes. It's between Bend and Redmond. Technical single track can be had there.

    Moving to Bend with a Ca. plated "08" WR 450

    Welcome to Bend! You should be able to get a plate at the DMV. Don't say anymore than you need too. I have heard of people that got plates for bikes that came from Washington or Idaho were getting letters requesting the plate back. Both of those states seem to set off alarms for the Oregon DMV. Being that California is more strict than Oregon for plating bikes I'd say you might have a good chance.

    Android App for WASHINGTON Off-Roaders

    Cool App! Thanks! Can you add Four Corners and Cline Butte to the Oregon OHV areas? Both located in Central Oregon/Bend area. Once again, great app. I'm passing it along to our local forums.

    East Fort Rock/China Hat Labor Day

    Camped at camp II last weekend with my boys. NO ONE out there except for yellow jackets. They were the worst I've ever seen. Couldn't stay still for more than a minute or you'd get swarmed. Trails were def dusty but it was only the 3 of us on them so we just spaced out, light breeze helped in the late afternoon with clearing dust. Looking forward to Fall..... Bring the rain!!!

    Bend Oregon

    Ditto on benddualsport. Lots of organized rides and ride reports there. If you facebook there's a private group on there (motobend) that's being used for getting guys together for rides. Welcome to Bend!!!

    Who rode where this last week and how was it?

    The last 3 weeks Cline Butte area (Central Oregon) has been perfect!!! Starting to dry out though. Snow in the forecast for the weekend though.
  12. Thanks for the input. Logging roads and power lines are something that I do a lot of riding on around here. I'm looking forward to checking out the area.
  13. Hey guys. I'm going to be moving to the Greensboro area soon. I'm currently in Central Oregon. The riding out here is really good, lot's of public land that varies from high desert to forested singletrack. I wanted to get some idea of the riding conditions around the Greensboro area. How much public land is there and how far do you have to ride pavement to get to riding areas? How difficult is it to plate dirt bikes? Can you plate a 2 stroke or is there emissions laws that prevent it? Out here there's no smog requirements so getting a 2 smoke plated isn't impossible. Is there any local dualsport forums? I have two boys that ride as well (ages 8 & 12). What kind of riding areas or tracks are there in the triad area? Thanks in advance for any input..

    Suzuki 2 Stroke FAQ

    Where did you find all of these specs? I just picked up a 2001 RM 80 and I'm looking for the premix ratio. 20:1 seems pretty rich but I'm not that familiar with 2 smokes. One other question, it has the stock muffler which doesn't have a spark arrestor. What are my options? Thanks
