  1. Today
  2. Do we have any 2 stroke jetting wizards here? I got my girl friend a yz 85 and bike is just fussy as hell with altitude. At sea level it starts just okay, has great throttle response and pulls well to Max rpm but stalls very easily. At higher elevations it has to be bumpstarted and borderline unrideable. Cuts out above half throttle like it's running out of fuel. Id really like to dial it in as well as possible for elevation from seal level up to 3000ft but I really don't know where to start with all the different fuel circuits. If someone local (I'm in escondido) was interested in helping me out and showing me the ropes I'd be forever grateful.

    Hey Rick, I usually don’t get home that early, but when I can sneak out early, I will definitely reach out. Thanks!!
  7. I ended my day at Mariscos in Tecate with fish tacos and shrimp ceviche. Good riding with you guys. I gained a lot of confidence on my 1090. About ready for a BDR ride.
  8. I think XT 350 is correct I went with Kenny and 4 others to Campo and border fence , then it was 2 plus Kenny and myself to Tecate then to Tecate peak. Basic 2 track + dirt roads . Perfect for what I needed.

    Welcome Frank. I ride from my house in East Chula Vista fairly often. I will be riding this week and next after work at 4 pm or so. If you are game for some local trails let me know. Home before dark.
  11. Apocalypse is slightly diff than axe murder, Keep in mind that from the viewpoint of a young person we may be experiencing the apocalypse. As a survival technique, it could be useful to mock a Dark Age. Speaking as a person of a certain age that came of age in 1968. 👀
  12. We went on Sunday up to Idyllwild and it where cold up there. Additional. The 243 down to Banning is 100% closed north of the Grande Fire station #51, (no way to Poppet Flatt Road)

    Thanks so much for the warm welcome!!
  14. I might also recommend changing your profile pic from hippy axe murderer to something....well something less hippy axe murderer.

  16. So I got to the bottom of La Posta first. I found a nice spot to chill in the shade a wait for the group. Eventually the majority of the group showed up. When Kenny arrived he said that someone had lost a gas cap. At that point, we assumed Darren and "someone" had turned around and gone back to find it. After waiting for about 30 minutes, along with the group, I realized i was running out of time and needed to get moving since I needed to be home by a certain time. My main side kick, Mikey777, and I decided to break out and slab west on the 8 so we would have time to grab some lunch. From there we hit some more paved twisties trying to make the most of the new Shinko 705's I installed on Fury the night before. They didn't disappoint. Before I met up with the group, I had already knocked out 80 miles of twisties. Ended up with 150 miles for the day. Had a great time.
  17. And that is really what it is all about! I will admit that this made me tear up a little bit. Bikes create such a great bond and are unlike most anything else that you can do with your son (or daughter). I bought my son his first bike when he was 8 and he is now 27. When we get to ride it is always just two guys out having fun; buddies. Very cool story; thank you for being "man enough" to share it!
  18. Hey everyone. This ride was pretty neat. I had forgot the fun you can have on laposta. The +1 was my son, thank you everyone for looking out for him. He did a flyingW off those humps and landed on the front tire for like five seconds and was able to recover it. He was all smiles after that . The large air caused a carb malfunction and we weren't able to get the carb float to work again so we called in the Chase truck. LB can really whip the big bike around. He wasn't about to let me evade his pursuit. I had a sneaky suspicion it was LB or Kenny that had taken lead (hi Jack) . Im glad you did. I rode out to say goodbye to everyone but you already knew what was up. I was in dual sport heaven, my son was loving it out there with me on bikes . We really really enjoyed being broke down.We talked and agreed it ok too get mad at each other for a little bit as long as we don't carry it on because we love each other.. And we really needed to talk and bond. Thank God for dual sport. That little boy is the most important person my life, even though he is a man now, and it's as if he's becoming my best friend. With a bunch of dual sport buddies , my son in my life and riding, I consider myself a rich man. Thanks everyone for showing up.

    Thanks everyone for the warm welcomes, looking forward to riding with you all in the future
  20. Thanks everyone for the ride, it was great to meet so many other riders and I hope to get out for more rides. Only picture I got is my bike up on top of Tecate peak but haven’t figured out a way to upload from my phone yet. Special thanks to SANrider for helping me with the flat fix, and finding that perfect bike stand bucket
  21. The group came together at the Pine Valley Gas Station. Eleven riders in all. 3 big bikes (two 990's and a 1090R) and a mish mash of little bikes. Mostly SDAR regulars and a couple new guys. Derek aka DWreck91 was the newest noob, shiny new rider with a shiny new DRZ400. He did fine. The route was Pine Creek Road to Sunrise Highway and then down Thing Valley Road, to La Posta, to the 8 Freeway. Somebody went down on Thing in front of me but it wasn't anything gloryful that needed to be photographed. A rider also lost his gas cap on Thing and our fearless leader, Darren aka 350Thumper , went back to help look for it. The group waited about 20 minutes or so for the missing gas cap down near the 8. (I lost a gas cap on a SDAR baja ride a couple years ago, it happens.) While waiting for the gas cap, LB said the word BBQ and my mind wandered from riding to food. LB and I busted out of the ride and grabbed some lunch at Grand Ole BBQ. We then hit the 8 over to Wild Cat Canyon to Ramona. LB has been missing his PD riding days so I kept making siren noises (woo, wooo, wooo) all day to keep his spirits up. No pictures from me.

    Derek: Nice to meet you today on the noob ride. I am in the Scripps Ranch area, so pretty close. Next time I jump out to Ramona for a little bike ride I will hit you up. Lots of good riding close by.
  23. Waiting anxiously for the ride report
  24. On a newbie ride I'd recommend a group of 3 or 4 spaced at 30 seconds. It was really hard to see potholes or ruts. I enjoyed the route though!
