    Dual Sport Nite Ride

    OH yeah...for sure. I'm always looking farther up/down the trail for traffic/dust/tell tale signs. If I can't see what's coming, I'm real slow on cornering.
  3. Sorry guys... I checked in late...was away from technology for the day. What time are you thinkin?

    Long Way Up

    Just saw the first episode of Long Way Up. Looks to be a pretty interesting challenge doing this on an electric bike. But of course when you got the kind of money they have to pull this off it’s no where near impressive as those who do this on their own. Besides I’m just watching to see the scenery as I doubt I will ever be able to do a trip like this in my lifetime.

    Like I said before. Human without common sense, start the most wildfires.

    No disrespect meant to the OP...was just a general question. I'm not looking to do anything off the main truck trail. I've been up there the last weekend and two weekends before that in the am before it gets hot. There are people up there. Jeeps, bikes, mtn bikes, hikers.

    The El Dorado fire

    Holy crap, that would be scary as s**t to be up there! Someone at dog park showed me a screenshot of the device going off. They were in a field of dry grass/weeds! It’s really a shame.

    The El Dorado fire

    The Eldorado fire started near Yucaipa/Oak Glen area on September 5th, during a gender reveal party, where somebody thought it would be cute to use a pyrotechnic smoke bomb that ultimately malfunctioned and started the blaze. The fire roared north towards the San Bernardinos, where it was finally slowed at highway 38 at Angelus Oaks by fire crews. They seem to be holding the line so far, and hopefully the blaze won't get on the northwest side of the road. Fire retardant has been air dropped onto properties on the northwest side. Sadly, one fire fighter fell victim to the fire so far. As the fire becomes more contained, now over 66%, I hope that both remaining forest and humans will be spared. This area is practically like a second home to me, for the amount of time I spend up there every year. I can only imagine how devastated the area will look when they finally put the fire out. Meanwhile, I have heard that flatlanders continue to stream up the open highways with their camping trailers and dirt bikes in tow, even though public access has been closed to the forest roads and campgrounds. I guess people have no common sense about anything. It shouldn't even have to said to stay off the mountain at this time. There are only two major highways up there, and one of those is already closed. If the west stretch of the 18 were to be closed, the only way anybody could get off the mountain in the event of an evacuation would be the east side of the 18 into the desert. Below is a recent fire map and a picture that somebody took from a cabin porch in Fawnskin, looking south across Big Bear lake.
  13. See you guys then. I'm in an old white van dragging an even older multicolored bike

    Nice cross threading job, bub Hanna. Otay at night sounds super sketch with all the activity out there by the border. I ain't gonna be riding mountain till the fire issues subside (at least 3 weeks). Great topic though, thanks for sharing. 8pm works great I will coffee up .

    George, you did the suspension on my '15 500Exc and it was amazing. I just traded it in for a '20 model that comes with new valving. With all this heat, and now a new job starting in a week I don't know when I'll get the chance to ride again. If you'd like , you're welcome to ride my bike for a bit so you can compare stock to your set-up.
  19. Thank you for helping the off road community, and offering this awesome opportunity to SDAR members!

    It's 8:50 and this place is barely priming. Here's the alteranative at pine valley or any mountain route below. You wanna face this ? Or wide open desert under the stars? Hmmmn..... DeZErt. On a open note. There's been a dark colored BMW adv bike prowling around on dirt roads that go to no where, hanging out , up in Descanso and the locals notice and don't like it.The fire season is no time to be caught on fire roads that lead to no where . Especially the dirt roads that cars don't normally travel on. It's fire season, let's be responsible , people are losing their homes on the mountain ,and thier lives, fighting fire ... The mountain valley people don't need someone hanging out on thier bmw adv bike on roads that are rarely in use for cars. There's a watch out. Don't be caught being dumb. Stay on the paved roads for another 3 weeks if ADV up on the mountain. If you wanna cut it loose , .... Go to the desert . No fire conditions at duh DeZErt.
