  1. FYI, on the meeting event post, the address is listed as 19735 POWAY RD, it should be 12735 POWAY RD.

    SPOT device prices- a reminder

    I recently acquired a satellite messenger thingy. I went with a newer company called Zoleo. When researching the different sat services one statement jumped out at me: "Spot account support is like a used car salesman crossed with a Cox cable customer service rep." I passed on Spot.

    The Geysers

    Just about exactly 11 years ago... Fun to see these pictures again, glad I could find them. No more riding the train tracks. Those are used for a Coaster style commuter rail, all fenced and developed in the right-of-way. Plus train cops will bust you for riding that rail right-of-way now. Fires probably changed the back country quite a bit. Still, I'd love to ride there again.
  4. Yeah, that up trail on a kicker is a ball buster. The clutch on the 250 was howling for a section or two. Mimi, we rode out there years ago and took a stab at that up trail. I got pitched off my moto in the deep sand at the bottom and nearly landed on a rattler. We picked our battle that day and decided to put our energy in Coyote Canyon if I recall correctly.
  5. There was a locked gate on the Oak Grove side of Iron Mtn that I didn't remember from back in the day. It was getting late and I had to back track miles to a trail bypass in my GPS I didn't remember ever loading. The trail went through but I never want to do that one again, rocks, boulders, dry water falls, super degraded trail. Lucky to get back to the main road by twilight. My headlight on the XR is crap. Beer and sandwiches at Oak Grove CG base camp. All's well that ends well!
  6. Things opened up and so did the views.
  7. But once over the top it eased up, and the single track flowed.
  8. Well its been awhile since I've written a ride report or even ridden for that matter. A favorite place to day ride for me was the BLM land north of Warner Springs and east of Oak Grove. I hadn't been there in 3 or 4 years and wanted reconnoiter the trail network for closures and quality. Rain or snow always helps. There was no help, just rock and chollas. There were a few sections that I had to flog the little XR to get up, all clutch work in 2nd gear to keep traction.

    Plans for New Club Event & Other SDAR Stuff

    Hey gang, its been awhile since I've been around here. I've been buried in dad mode for the last three years. I'm finally coming up for some air and hope to do some moto rides. One thing I'll point out, that I'm sure many are already aware, is that most people have the ability to donate up to $300 per year non-itemized and get it back in their tax return. https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/special-300-tax-deduction-helps-most-people-give-to-charity-this-year-even-if-they-dont-itemize "Following special tax law changes made earlier this year, cash donations of up to $300 made before December 31, 2020, are now deductible when people file their taxes in 2021" Donation sent. I look forward to seeing you out on the trails soon. -David

    Rocket Launch

    I wonder how much it costs to delay for a day? Don't they have to pump out those fuel tanks? Moving 500,000 gallons of cryo liquid (and keeping it liquid) each time seems like no small feat!

    Rocket Launch

    The military (ULA) is launching a DELTA IV HEAVY rocket, with secret payload, out of Vandenburg AFB tomorrow 5:44pm. The amateur rocketeers are predicting the orbit will require a flight path SE of Vandenburg. The DELTA IV HEAVY is the biggest cargo rocket in the USAF quiver. This will mean that there should be an exceptional ET light show just off our coast at that time tomorrow. Check it out. https://www.ulalaunch.com/missions/delta-iv-nrol-71
  12. With all the rain I'm sure the mud bog puddle at the meeting place entrance will be big as ever. If I remember correctly it's unavoidable to get to the parking. Think it'll be OK for a heavy 2wd rig with a trailer to bog through it to get to the parking? ('OK' as in not getting stuck)
  13. Oh yeah, just looked over the tracks. More than enough!
  14. Unfortunate. No one will learn soft sand riding technique with these conditions.
