  1. Clutch has gone out 100 miles into Baja on my buddies brand new husky fe501. Tried filling reservoir and losses fluid after a couple pulls. Lower slave cylinder seal has failed. Staying at Cal’s tonight, Mike’s tomorrow. Free beer for anyone that can figure out Baja fix or better yet if anyone is packing up and coming to Mikes tomorrow bring part along. Muchas Gracias!
  2. Will be running nearly identical route tomorrow through Sunday. Dust will certainly not be an issue, although expecting mud, ditches and puddles a-plenty! Feel free to follow along. https://us0-share.inreach.garmin.com/brikman
  3. Soboba Invitational Trail Ride

    I prepaid for the Soboba ride this Sunday Feb 18 and can’t make it, PM me if you’d like it.
  4. Bringing my 12 yo son out to lark for the first time, will be out about 8:30, wave if you see us on YZ450FX and TTR125. Looking forward to a great day.
  5. Lake Isabella

    I have riden through Keysville a few times during the Alpine trails ride, awesome stuff around there. I’d also like to take the family up for RV camping and riding, will watch for updates from you guys and hit you up for best spots when I make plans to go.
  6. Very nice. What was the route from MSR to the observatory, west via Meling or did you go SE out of the front/left side of Mikes? Its been many years since we went up and out to the left so curious if anyone has recent experience.
  7. Go see Joe Hauler in San Marcos and he can fab you up a custom rack. Joe built a custom carrier off the back of my 32 Southwind, he added I-Beams to reinforce rack to chassis so I can load it and flat tow off it. Setup gets me 5 bikes and a Jeep! Two bikes (TTR125 and CRF150RB) on RV rack, flat tow Jeep with two bikes inside of it (TTR110 and CRF50), YZ450FX on Joe Hauler behind Jeep. Rack is also super handy for non-dirt bike trips to carry things like coolers, firewood, bicycles, etc.
  8. New bike ready to ride - 2018 YZ450FX

    Thanks for the comments guys. I got a couple hours on the bike in Ocotillo last weekend but mainly just sweeping kid rides and taking it somewhat easy to "break her in". I have always had motocross bikes prior to this (08 YZ450, 10 CRF450, 13 KX450) so she certainly feels a bit soft (I am 240ish geared up) but power feels good and e-start is fantastic, especially sweeping kid rides (I have 4 all on bikes). I plan to up the spring rates in the next couple weeks to dial in sag and rebound. We are heading out to Cougar Buttes/Johnson Valley area next week so I will report back once I have had a chance to open her up. Start of typical kid ride. Broke off with the older boys to take them down "Xpert Moto Slot" Nothing on 4 wheels fits here!
  9. Tire Sliced - Run it or not?

    The cautious side of me beat out the cheap and lazy side, I must be getting OLD! New tire mounted and ready to go... hardest part was being careful not to scratch the pretty blue wheels!
  10. Brand new bike, brand new tire. Second day out hit something that sliced it like butter. Hate to throw tire with less than 50 miles in the trash but also don’t want I‎t coming apart on me or tube expanding through. Definitely a weak spot but curious to see what others thing, run it or not?
  11. A few after-hours nights in the garage and my new YZ450FX is ready to go. Heading out to Ocotillo this weekend to break her in before multi-day rides in Mohave and Baja over the next couple months.

  12. Big weekend of dirt bike riders supporting the Baja locals. Los Ancianos also put on a great ride Saturday. We ran into a few of the guys from the other ride at RSV Saturday night, including one that gave everyone in module 1 a very early wakeup call!
  13. Yes dirt from Meling to Colonet. Just ride north out of Meling to El Coyote. Go left at the T just after el coyote, takes you through the ranch (go slow) then will see a sign that says Colonet, great ride west across the hills then drops you into large wash that takes you all the way to highway, a few gates to open/close along the way. Route is fairly rough but a lot of fun, no problem on the moto bikes, probably a handful but doable on the big dogs. Pemex station is south of wash/highway intersection a couple of miles or there is a newer one north of Colonet maybe 10 miles, then pickup old racecourse along the coast to Ererindira KX is my bike and does great in Baja it's got a lot of Mexico miles on it, just have to be careful with the gas out of jugs down there, fuel injection jams up easy.
  14. It was great having the drone along, thankfully I had pre-ordered it months ago so got it just in time for this ride. It is small enough to put in backpack on while riding, although it was nice having the jeep and razor along to carry it. I recommend getting a pelican or similar case for it, I use a Pelican 1450 and fits great.
  15. Worked well with the Jeep as we planned meet up points rather than having him chase all dirt routes. Razor keeps up fine, just set meet up points with him as well so the bikes can hit single track along the way. Everyone in the group has been riding Baja for many years so we are able to split up and re-group easily.
