    Sandblast Hare & Hound, who's going?

    Eh you'll be good. Courses at Superstition are easier than PCE and PCW. Mix of everything. Sand, rocks, tight, wide open. 66 miles is relatively short compared to some of the other formats, so it's a good intro race. The nice thing about running two loops instead of the same loop multiple times is the expert classes won't blow by you at 300 mph doing a wheelie. Fun to see, but catching their roost with your helmet gets old. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Dead engine start. If you're not trying to be competitive, you can always slow roll off the start and let the pack thin out. Enjoy the dust! On my YZ450 I run a 14t up front for everything except Glamis. That would be my suggestion for D38, otherwise you'll find the top of 5th gear really quick in the open sections. Races are fun. Go race.
  3. To clarify, I have a plated KTM 500. Perhaps "OHV" was the wrong terminology.
  4. So are the OHV routes clearly marked? Stay on trail and we're all good?
  5. Does anyone know if the Valley of the Moon is accessible by OHV? It looks like there are trails there, and I see some web pages indicating that Jeep trails exist in the area...but I've also seen it's potentially a BLM Wilderness Area with no vehicle access. Looking to ride from the Jacumba Shell Station to the Gravity Wall/VotM. Any input appreciated. Thank you!
  6. Surely someone in this group has some property and a Bobcat. Make it a minibike race and I'll join on my wife's TTR-125. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  7. I've ridden in the park a little over the years but never really got familiar with it. Most of my riding these days is at the track or just about everywhere else in SoCal aside from AB. Can someone provide a couple pins to decent staging areas to start from? Any major landmarks or boundary roads nearby would help me get the lay of the land. I'm not afraid of hard areas. 500 EXC. Thanks!

    Las Vegas ideas ?

    Hit up Speed Vegas and go jump a Trophy Truck or lap a supercar. A little spendy, and I've not done it, but it's worth a look.
  9. I'm looking to explore this area a bit. All of my experience in Mammoth is during the winter, so I've never ridden up there. Looking for any information...routes, trail names, staging areas, .gpx files, lodging info, points of interest...etc. KTM 500, not afraid of the hard tracks. Thanks all!
  10. @Goofy Footer I'm keen (and have one or two more guys as well) if you want to put something together. PM me! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  11. Pretty well nailed it. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  12. Waypoints: 1. Lazy Lizard to Iron Door (with a detour into Superstition). This is all dirt except the last couple of miles to Iron Door. 2. Iron Door across Oc Wells to Salton Sea (all dirt). 3. Salton Sea across Mecca to Berdoo Canyon (mostly pavement). 4. Through JTNP and Yucca Valley to Rimrock (mix of dirt and pavement with lots of options if you know the area well). 5. Rimrock to Big Bear (all dirt). We stayed the night in Big Bear and trucked home to SD the next day. We had a drop-off/chase truck so there was no vehicle shuttling. All on KTM EXCs. 450 and 500.
  13. Did this ride with a couple friends over the weekend. 7 hours ride time, 225 miles. Started at the Lazy Lizard and ended up in Big Bear Lake by 5:00 PM. I'm interested in putting together some long rides like this and looking for routes. Anyone got any suggestions? Thanks all!
  14. Gotcha. We definitely started off the main (perimeter?) road and entered on the west side. Road all the way up until it merged with Greenhorn. The couple of intersecting trails must have been the aforementioned bail outs. There were some tough sections. I'd be lying if I said I got all the way up without a couple of snags. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ I'll let y'all know the next time I'm headed up. Would be nice to put someone else at the front of the group to absorb the head on risk!
  15. Yo Kenny, I would say we were on it an hour or more. That said, let's do it. The next time I'm going to hit up CC I'll ping you. Thanks bud!
