    Tracks to big Bear

    If you run a droid the Locus app with the John Thorn CA map is very helpful it shows all the USFS trails / forest roads

    Snow to desert dash

    thats the million dollar question, maybe because he was able to adjust his mapping so he could feather the throttle? We both had extremely knobby tires D606s for me but I forget what his were ...haha yeah a snow tire thread would probably open up a can of worms yeah the help was necessary with it getting close to sunset the temps were dropping and I was sweating like crazy so it wasn't a good combo

    Snow to desert dash

    Thanks guys I am glad you enjoyed the write up, Im not much of a writer so Im trying to work on it through ride reports. Yeah I dont think you would fare to well on the GSA but it was slick as snot, although my friend had a 701 and cruised through the snow without any issue his bike had way better traction. Im glad to hear the story brought back some memories for you. Yeah its definitely hard to read the snow compared to reading dirt. haha thanks we were committed from the start not to turn around. It was funny because some offroaders turned around and said the conditions were too bad to make it all the way to Angelus Oaks..... here we are made it all the way through on 2 wheels lol ..Im happy to hear you enjoyed the write up
