  1. Also, this is private property (excepting the road easement), so the Forest Service and BLM probably won't be able to help. Who does? Sheriff?
  2. Actually, it doesn't go across reservation land. You (meaning y'all) see the black phantom line around the road? That is private property. Going onto SANDAG's parcel lookup tool shows this: The gates noted correspond to the North and South edges of the property. Looking up the APN on the San Diego County Public Records shows this: Note the date. Clicking through for more detail gives this: Searching for the new owners, there are matching names living in San Diego. Giving the new owners the benefit of the doubt, they may not know that they don't own the road. Or maybe they do, and just don't care. Looking at the satellite view, there is no development on the property. And yes, SANDAG has it as Morris Ranch Road, and some of the properties give an address of Morris Ranch Road and some as Thing Valley Road.
  3. We rode out 'the back way', zoomed in and didn't get charged for parking, parked right next to the gate, and then bypassed the line of cars on the way out in a couple of minutes. Motorcycles are such the way to go to a motorcycle race.
  4. If I was riding that bike, I would just be doing wheelies everywhere.
  5. We'll be at the D37 sprint enduro(s) this weekend. We have been doing the D37 Grand Prixs recently, they are a bit fast for my liking but my son likes the heads up racing and I have been enjoying them more than I thought I would. Taft isn't near the top of my list for vacation spots but the race there last month turned out to be really fun and they do a good job of keeping the courses watered. There were a couple of D36 Cross Country races scheduled this spring near the Clear Creek area south of Hollister, but they have been cancelled and/or postponed. We are hoping to go to the Fools Gold enduro, near Georgetown, on May 2. The trails there are really fun. I haven't done any D38 races but my impression is they are faster than I want to go.

    Clutch Me This

    I should have thought of the detent mechanism, but that is usually not a wear item or subject to damage. It is certainly easier to access, and if it has been an occasional issue on other bikes of the same model, it makes it a good suspect. The broken dog was a dog off of a gear. I am surprised it didn't lock up the transmission.

    Clutch Me This

    From your description, I could easily believe bent or otherwise damaged shift fork. A clutch issue should be present anytime you use the clutch and is going to be separate from shifting issues. Unfortunately, inspection/repair is a engine out case splitting effort. I would still try changing oil (including brand) first but recognize you are really crossing your fingers and hoping. Once, I knew something was up with my transmission when it would occasionally not upshift, unless I downshifted first and then sometimes I could get it to upshift enough to get to the gear I wanted to be in. When I pulled the shift shaft out, a piece of dog came out of the hole on the shifter side. I remember thinking that that would explain it.

    Clutch Me This

    I don't think your clutch looks bad at all, although it can be hard to tell by the pictures. If the fingers on the basket still pretty smooth, then that probably isn't the problem. If they feel wavy, you can file them flat and see if that helps. When you say erratic, do you mean occasional problem or disagreeable behavior all the time? Hard shifting all the time, sometimes, or only when making a particular shift (like 2-3)? I would be tempted to change the oil and maybe try something different, that is a cheap and quick test and I would do that first.
  9. Seeing if anyone want to go riding tomorrow. Duncan munched his finger and riding wouldn't be much fun for him.
  10. You had me mystified, "I've never heard of Fraeser national park". Frazier Park. I know where that is. I am going to be up at Cerro Noroeste on Wednesday/Thursday.
  11. Craigs List ad here: https://sandiego.craigslist.org/nsd/mcy/d/carlsbad-2011-ktm-250-xc/7133102565.html I am totally guessing at it's value, we'll see soon how that goes. Less for a SDAR member, say $2500. Not mentioned in the ad is that I have the lights for it, but I hacked up the headlight to put an LED lamp in it, which was great when it was working, and I have a later rear fender on it, so the rear light/fender extension doesn't fit properly. I still have the original fender, plus most of the original parts. But not the seat, for some reason, although I have another seat.

    What's Open?

    I was out yesterday and the staging area and campgrounds are open. I have never seen a ranger out there, but I tend to go on weekdays.

    2016 KX100 FS

    It did, the buyer was pretty stoked after he took a quick spin "to see how it runs." I can start thinking about a new dirt bike....

    2016 KX100 FS

    All- I bought this bike in the middle of 2018 for my son, who promptly grew 6 inches. We have only put about 16 hours on it, and it looked to have about that many on it when we got it. I was hoping my daughter would develop an interest in riding it and have a reason to keep it, but that isn't happening. It has just been sitting for the last year and should go to someone who will ride it. https://sandiego.craigslist.org/nsd/mcy/d/carlsbad-2016-kawasaki-kx100/7081083574.html Naturally, I will work with a SDAR member.

    Phone based gps help!

    Yes, so long as you have wifi you are good. You need to be able to plan far enough in advance to download maps in advance. I don't think having an unlocked phone is a prerequisite. I just got an AT&T phone (boo, I will get to that), because that was what was available at the time. Something I have not seen mentioned in this thread and maybe not here are Avenza Maps. I think it is free, and has quite a bit of support. At first I thought it was dumb, it is just like looking at a PDF on your phone. I then figured out it actually shows your location on the map. So, for instance, it is like having a view of the Cleveland National Forest MVUM and it shows your location. I have used it at Corral Canyon, Los Padres (Mt Pinos and Ballinger Canyon), and Kennedy Meadows. I had never been to Kennedy Meadows before last September and it sure was nice to navigate around and know where you were. Thinking about it now, I could probably add the phone to our Family plan for near free. I am a long term AT&T customer strictly out of laziness, and keep wanting to look into something else. I suspect that a pay as you go plan would be a lot cheaper. I suspect issues I have with the phone are a result of AT&T implementation.
