    I went to the BDR movie at SDBMW couple weeks ago...they said so far, it's the toughest BDR route. Big bikes OK but only for experienced riders. I've done many of the areas on my own, excluding the most southern portion. Looks like a bitchin' route !
  2. Mule, yes, of course...and we can use help as Cosmo mentioned.
  3. Mule...volunteer dinner is Friday afternoon about 4pm, registration starts at 6pm.

  16. SAN DIEGO ADVENTURE RIDERS supports the TREAD LIGHTLY philosophy of Responsible Recreation. Remember, we are STEWARDS of promoting a positive image when we're out there on public lands.... The Pledge........ Tread Lightly! On Land Travel responsibly on designated roads and trails or in permitted areas. Respect the rights of others including private property owners and all recreational trail users, campers and others to allow them to enjoy their recreational activities undisturbed. Educate yourself by obtaining travel maps and regulations from public agencies, planning for your trip, taking recreation skills classes, and knowing how to use and operate your equipment safely. Avoid sensitive areas such as meadows, lakeshores, wetlands and streams, unless on designated routes. This protects wildlife habitat and sensitive soils from damage. Do your part by leaving the area better than you found it, properly disposing of waste, minimizing the use of fire, avoiding the spread of invasive species, restoring degraded areas, and joining a local enthusiast organization. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Discover the rewards of responsible recreation · Trail riding provides the opportunity to get away from it all and builds family traditions. * Remember-if you abuse it, youll probably lose it !! Careless operation of your motorcycle can cause damage and may result in closing of areas to trail riding enthusiasts. * Respect the environment and other trail users. By using common sense and common courtesy, what is available today will be here to enjoy tomorrow. Responsible Trail Riding *Travel & recreate with minimum impact. *Respect the environment and the rights of others. *Allow for future use of the outdoors, by leaving it better than you found it. Negotiating terrain · On slick trails, moderate the throttle and use the clutch to gain maximum traction with minimum tailspin. · On switchbacks, avoid roosting around the apex of the turn when climbing or brake sliding while heading down which gouges the trail. · When negotiating ruts, stay loose over the bike to allow for sudden direction changes. · Ride loose rocks with your rear end slightly off the seat, looking ahead, easy on the throttle and in one-higher gear than you would normally use. · Cross streams slowly, at a 90-degree angle to the stream. Walking may be preferable as stream bottoms are often slippery. Rules and common courtesy · Be considerate of others on the road or trail. · Ride only where permitted. · Leave gates as you find them. · Yield the right of way to those passing or traveling uphill. · Keep the noise and dust down. Others will appreciate it. · Pack out what you pack in. Educate yourself, plan and prepare before you go · Obtain a map of the area you wish to explore and determine which areas are open for use. · Contact the land manager for area restrictions and if crossing private property, be sure to ask permission from the landowners. · Check the weather forecast. · Prepare for the unexpected by packing a small pack full of emergency items, spare tubes and TOOLS. Safety on the road or trail · Wear a helmet, eye protection and other safety gear. · Buddy up with two or three riders as riding solo can leave you vulnerable if you have an accident or breakdown. Trail riding and the environment · Stay on designated roads and trails or other areas open for use. · Avoid spooking livestock you encounter. · Cross streams at fording points only. · Remember, designated wilderness areas are reserved for the most primitive outdoor adventure. Minimum impact camping · Select lightweight equipment, possibly in earth-tone colors that will blend with the surroundings. · Use existing campsites whenever possible. · Avoid building fires. The Tread Lightly! Guide LINK HERE to Responsible Trail Riding contains more detailed and informative information when riding into the great outdoors.
  17. To post photos from your own photo hosting site, you must have an image hosting website that allows you to copy the URL of your photos. When you post on the forum, you go to the little icon above the window where you type your post, that shows a picture (looks like a postcard) and when you move your mouse onto it, it says "insert image". Then a window will appear where you paste the URL of your image....preview your post to see if the image is there, then go ahead and post it. I use Smugmug....I also have Webshots, and there are many other photo hosting sites out there. 2Wheels explains it another way........ First you sign up for a free account at an image hosting website. I use photobucket (free), but there are others. You upload your pictures to photobucket. Once you've uploaded them, you'll see that it says IMG Code under each picture. Click where it says IMG code and it automatically copies that link to your clipboard. Then when you're writing your post, just paste the link. All you'll see while you're writing your post will be a URL, but when you click on "add reply", an image like this one appears Also, you may attach MOTORCYCLE RELATED ONLY Photos to the SDAR Server and your post by using the attachment button on your posting menu, maximum size of photos as an attachment is 1024 x 768. Important Note: Any photos larger than 1024 X 768 pixels posted after July 24th, 2009 (date of this new standard), will be deleted in the future.
  18. The current roster for SUPPORTING SDAR MEMBERS is updated and submitted to the shops providing a discount. If you have contributed, and have not received a PM with the Members Only Forum passwords, please PM me so I can check to see if you're on the club roster, and also I'll forward you the passwords. Thanks,
  19. HI All, as mentioned at the club meeting, we have implemented a $20/year voluntary paid membership fee to belong to San Diego Adventure Riders Club and website. This is partially due to the fact that website costs, maintenance and work involved is greater with each passing year. I also believe that SDAR should be more of a "club" atmosphere, than just a website....the attendance at the club meeting and involvement in volunteer trail building and maintenance supports this fact. What this means is that the forums and website will still remain free to everyone. But paid or contributing members will have access to additional benefits: Discounts at certain motorcycle shops SDAR Club membership card, listed as a contributing, supporting or sponsoring member (whatever we decide to call it) Access to Members Only Forums Discount on all SDAR merchandise (stickers, hats, t-shirts, etc.) Discount on entry fee to any SDAR organized, promoted ride or event Some additional forum controls for each paid member Discounts on MSF Basic motorcycle training Only Contributing Members will be able to attach motorcycle only related photos (using SDAR server) to your posts, following proper photo posting guidelines (including max size of photos being 1024 x 768) We already have at about 10 motorcycle shops who offer discounts to SDAR Contributing members. New SDAR merchandise to be sold, is in the works. Details on everything, including shops offering discounts, will be posted soon. I'm still working on other shops for discounts. For anyone who has made a monetary donation to SDAR before, you do not need to pay for the first year of voluntary membership. If anyone decides they want to contribute more than the $20/year, of course that will be graciously accepted. If you are a moderator or listed as a club officer, your get all the benefits of a contributing member, without having to contribute the $20. We also plan on having an official Club Meeting probably quarterly, so the next one would be in April sometime. Thanks for your support and understanding ! I want to thank everyone who helps with the club and website and who has donated in the past. And, I'd like to thank all SDAR participants and members for helping make SDAR what it is today ! If you use the Paypal or send a check in the mail, please include Your Full Name & site USERNAME Address Phone Number E-Mail this way I can easily keep track of who is who......thanks ! Please send the new President, ADV Bum (Mike) a PM for his mailing or Paypal address. We will also be able to accept credit cards via the Donate Button on Front Page of our website.
