    A Good Day Visiting Locals

    I went into GP for my first time a couple weeks ago and was pleasantly surprised at the friendliness of the staff, and the non pressure attitude of the sales team. I was looking at bikes for a buddy, as well as that Ducati Desert Sled with gold rims which will be my next bike, and they entertained my musings and stories. That's how you earn someone's business in my opinion, so good on them.

    I plan on stopping by just to meet and greet and then I plan on hitting up those dealers near you since I don't often get up to north county much.
  4. Sadly...I think none of us will be here for this ride in 2091 😂

    Thank you for the info. I will try to make it just to meet and greet and looks like maybe pick up some garb.

    You will be cool if you get one @Uncle Champ 😎. @Van The Fj did good. It's a super easy trail, with the only tough spot being the water crossing near the end if it's been raining. When we crossed it was up past my bumper, but I took a stock FJ. Water came in the cabin, but its all rubber inside so drying out was no issue. However, the starter goes out if you submerge it in water so starting the FJ was give and take until it dried out 😂🤣 @socalhodaka That sounds great, I will definitely look into it!

    New member introduction commencing: My name is Jared and I'm a 36 year old middle school History teacher. I grew up riding in Ocotillo Wells on thumpers, but now have relegated myself to "ADV" bikes. I'm on my second V-Strom 650 and I'm down for casual rides on the street and/or dirt. I'm slow and don't take many risks. My ultimate goal is a coast to coast to coast ride in about 2023 years with two of my buddies, and in the more immediate future to do the Mojave Road on my Strom ( I did it in my FJ last year). I'm mostly a lurker on the forums, but I'l chime in every now and then. Thanks for having me!
