  1. I own dual sports because of the convenience of riding to the trails. Because I live in California I own a Suzuki DRZ 400 and DR 350 because they are the cheapest options in this dual sport restrictive state. I want to buy a beta 390 rr simply because I would like a lighter more peppy bike, however, I find it difficult to justify the 10 grand. The reason is not just because 10 grand is a lot of money, but two of the guys I often ride with own KTM 500 exc. We never race the track but often ride mountain fire trails and narrow trails with occasional steep climbs. My bikes with the typical carb and exhaust mods will go everywhere their bikes go and just as fast, and sometimes they can keep up with me. When I ride the KTM's I find the vibration of the engine and stock suspension bouncing me around wares me out as fast as throwing around the weight of the DR's. Because the KTM's have so much power I ride them with the throttle one quarter to half open on the dirt trails, anything more will throw you off the trail, for the DR's, half to wide open brings the same thrill. Often I am more than happy to switch back to my old DR's after putting miles on the KTM's. Is something wrong with me to not enjoy modern technology like others do, or do I just need to spend more time on a lighter more powerful bike to really learn to appreciate what they offer. I want the Beta, I'm just not sure if its worth it. Has anyone with similar experience resolved this?

    Pozo La Panza

    I'm heading to Pismo beach this thanksgiving and plan on riding Friday 11/24 & Saturday 11/25. Looking to stage @ Turkey flats Friday morning. I was hoping that someone has some gps routes they could message me, it'll save me time bouncing around trying to find the good stuff. I rode here years back and it kicked my@ss. Thinking redemption is needed. Thanks.

    Stonyford ride?

    Anyone interested in riding Stonyford over the next three weeks. I just retired last week and the wife said that I need to get the "Fack" out of the House...
  4. Hi everyone, I'm looking for a bit of California-specific information for a particular scenario, and I haven't been able to find a definitive answer anywhere. I am the owner of a '95 XR600R that I bought with a CA plate a few months ago, and so far I've been loving it. Unfortunately, last week I was in an accident on the street where a car turned in front of me, and both the bike and car took some damage. I'm doing fine (and I'm not at fault), and the bike is going to be inspected in the near future by the insurance company. I'm preparing for the worst case (total loss) since the bike is older and most likely not worth much in the eyes of an insurance company, so my question is this... If the bike is deemed a total loss (claim agent said it's likely) and I buy the bike back, could my California plate be revoked when I get the CHP salvage vehicle inspection? I would not be happy if my dual sport gets turned into a dirt-only salvage vehicle after this whole mess, so I'm wondering if anyone has an answer. Also, does the CHP inspection require a speedo to make salvage vehicle "road worthy" again?
  5. Hi All, About 12 years ago I was at either glamis or Ocotillo wells every weekend with my 4x4 and Toyhauler. Between then an now I still go to Ocotillo but mainly mid-week and just without the bikes (no trailer). Since then I've upgraded to a 32' Class A motorhome pulling a trailer with toys. If I were to head out on a Saturday afternoon to camp Sat-Mon where would I stay? Its been a while and I am not sure where I should go anymore. I understand I'm at a disadvantage going after the weekend crowd has already arrived. I'd hate to drive in somewhere and either get stuck or be forced to try and turn around.... Any ideas?
  6. Sorry for new duplicate thread to my CA extravaganza thread, but I am still having technical issues not able to reply in some threads even my own threads from my home PC... weird so I have dropped the woods ranch option and focusing on SoCal desert riding only for my march 11-19 trip to LA . any SoCal TT desert riding jackals out there? want to show an experienced good C rider some good desert trails? hate the whoops, not a fan of giant hill climbs, but I do love the desert. Never been to Barstow, got on a great TT ride in Ridgecrest years ago though, been to NorNev lots too. I will come across the Tehachapi pass from / to I5 my route home on both legs, so Ridgecrest and Barstow are straight shots for me to get there from I5 vice versa
  7. New baksideDisaster flick is out! Back in early November we headed south on a 2,275 mile dualsport road trip down to California and back to ride the Mojave desert. Enjoy some amazing scenery and fast looking dirt bike guys thanks to some epic dronage as we rip up Spangler Hills and Alabama Hills! Please like and share!

    Fresh Meat Needs to Ride!

    Newly single, and am finding that everyone to hang out with is either married with kids - no free time, - or not interested in the same stuff. I really would like to get out for some throttle therapy with people who are single track types and can have a beer or two. Maybe even single! Ha. I work in Susanville CA, but live in Cedar City, UT. I'm gone a lot of the time, but if someone's already riding and I can tag along that's ideal. Arizona, NM, Utah, Nevada, and NorCal are all places I'm willing to travel. I'm self sufficient so I don't need a babysitter, just some bros/broettes to ride with. My skill level would probably rate as intermediate, though its been over a year since I got some good roost time in. I've never ridden tracks really, but I'd be interested in trying.

    Los Angeles area riders

    Hello, I am looking for people to go on off road rides with. So far been to Azusa Cyn OHV and Gorman. Would prefer a little less sand a bit more green and not too far, like a day trip. What are our options?
  10. I have watched Washington State change over the years and being at a place in my life where all I want to do is ride trails, I am considering leaving Washington State. Where would you move to if you were set up in life and all you had to do was to enjoy the next 30 years riding trails? Your help is greatly appreciated. I have 3 places in mind, what say you guys? Where would you go? My ideal riding is technical single track. For instance I love little Naches, Tahuya obviously and Shelton areas. Thanks everyone who chimes in, much appreciated. PS. Pics are a huge bonus.
  11. While doing some browsing/research about various models, I noticed that there are no longer any green sticker 450's for the 2018 model year of all the manufacturers (at least according to https://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/onroad/cert/ofhrv/ofmcatv_comply/2018/2018.php) While I'm sure KTM/Husqvarna will come out with their 450 EXC's that are green stickered in the US, I still question the lack of green sticker 450's from the Japanese manufacturers. Was there some sort of regulatory change or did the manufacturers just decide to pull the 2018 green stickers for some secret reason we don't know about? One of the biggest selling points of the WR450F in CA was the fact that it's green sticker, and now that they're no longer green sticker there really is no incentive to pick one up anymore. Does this have something to do with the sunset of the red sticker program? Is this actually going to happen? https://www.arb.ca.gov/board/books/2017/062217/17-6-3pres.pdf
  12. Hey guys I am new to this forum and created an account with the intention of hopefully getting some new riding buddies. A little backround: I am a 24 year old male that rode dirt bikes since about 12. I joined the Marine Corps when I was 19 and served 5 years overseas. Dirt bikes and all hobbies went on hold. I am recently out of the service and living in Lancaster, CA until I move in Mid-August to start flight school in Colorado (ex-controller). I picked motorcycle riding back up and have become quite good. Better than I remember ever being at least. I ride my dad’s 2006 CRF450x mostly. I have a CR125 also that I rebuilt to use but I definitely outgrew it both in weight and skill level. I love the nasty single track and have the stamina to ride all day without a break. My issue is that I am always riding by myself and I go really far into single track that are not even on maps sometimes which is pretty risky. I also have a hard time keeping riding friends because everyone is either intimidated that my skill level is too high, they cannot ride more than an hour without going back to camp for a nap or they are the “all talk” guys with shiny new bikes without a single scratch but they are magically busy every single weekend/weekday they say they are going to ride. My schedule is pretty good. I can ride Saturday afternoons, Anytime Sundays and anytime Wednesdays. I am looking for guys/girls that could teach me a thing or two and be able to ride out in the case of an emergency. I can care less about your skill level as long as you’re game for exploring single track and generally like to ride often. Hit me up if you want to meet me for some riding together. Not sure if I should post my number so send me a message and I’ll send it to you. Christopher D.
  13. Looking to see if any of you Nor-Cal guy's want to ride Stonyford on Saturday-3/18?
  14. My gosh, you guys couldn't buy rain and now you can't buy a dry day. Hope everyone is safe!
  15. Time to upgrade the front tire on my YZ 125. I ride almost exclusively on singletrack trails at Foresthill, Georgetown, Cow Mountain, and the Sierra Nevada etc. Anyone have recommendations for a good enduro front tire? I'd prefer to spend less than $100 on this tire. Pretty new to dirtbike tires, so feel free to school me. I replaced my rear with a Motoz Mountain Hybrid, but think I'm gonna spring for a Shinko 505 Cheater next. Thanks!

  17. Hey guys, I am looking at a 2005 CRF250x that has a Arizona license plate on it. I was wondering if anybody could help me. My understanding is, from looking on forums and calling AAA, I all I need is the title of the bike from the owner and to get a VIN inspection by the DMV. The guy said the bike is registered until September 2020 in Arizona. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
  18. I'm free on Saturday 8/18 and Sunday 8/26, wanted to get a ride together to meet some people. My riding group has grown smaller and smaller, and people are just too hard to convince to get outside these days. So I'm looking to make some new friends. Planning on somewhere south of Tahoe, maybe off 88 but open to ideas or other places. I do have a few in mind, but they are private staging areas that I don't want to publicly announce. Goal is lots of single track, full day ride. I'll probably go camping up there so I'll be out there early. Leave the spot by 8ish and ride til 2ish. Typically, I'm a B paced rider with low ego and no rush anymore. I need to make it home for work in most of the same pieces. Let me know if you want to ride, or if I should try a spot you'd recommend.

    california Riding public roads

    Was wondering what all of your experiences have been with cops while riding public roads. I've only ever been bothered by a cop once and it was due to hillclimbing the side of an overpass, he told me I couldn't be doing it and to move on & that was that. Other than that one occurrence, I've never been bothered by cops, I continually ride main roads & go through cool little trails along the way, even fill up at the gas station when in need. Mind you I'm always with a helmet, I maintain my lane, I don't usually split lanes or cut people off and I'm not out destroying public/private property that's being "maintained", I just tear up dirt in areas that are overgrown & run down. I live just south of Sacramento. What's it like for you all?

  24. Looking for advice on where to camp and ride in the Tahoe area. We prefer to disperse camp. Don't mind organized campgrounds as long as it's casual without a bunch of dumbass rules. Let me know what you got. Looking to go in October. PM me if you like. We have a motorhome with limited ground clearance and pull a small trailer. We have Dual sport bikes we could bring if necessary. Thanks in advance.
