  1. Well yesterday was just one of those really good rides, we met by the Warner Springs Glider port, and rode Lost Valley and the California Hiking and Riding trail. After that we swing through to Anza to top off the tiny tanks, and headed over to run to Bailey's Cabin and back. We saw two other riders out on the trail to Baileys, one on a CRF300L and one on a Rally Towered 690 that was pretty set up nice dudes. Good times, great riding. Lost valley route has some iffy puddles, and new ruts, the bit toward the end is a little slimy and still has snow so the whole route is gorgeous right now. Bailey's Cabin route was gorgeous, and it got warmer the further down to the desert floor you went.
  2. Friend is selling his nicely set up XR650L, I've ridden with him a bunch of times - it's a older carbureted bike but he has fixed or repaired anything it had issues with and made it a dependable trail pony. LINK TO CYCLE TRADER POSTING
  3. Our first time at the Parker Dash, my first time at an event like this, event was hosted by GPSKevin Adventures. Basically you meet a group of skinny-bike riders at a TA Travel Center parking lot in Indio CA, and send it through all kinds of desert textures chasing daylight all the way to Parker AZ, and back the next day. 10/10 recommend, can't wait to do it again. I am on my 2018' 690 Enduro R, Scott is on his timeless Husaberg 570, and Perry is on his 1723 Honda XR650L that I believe he is selling as we speak... for a ktm 500. There is Hard section options as well, we will go for some of those next year - this year we stuck to the intermediate main route to feel things out and just had a great time Here is a Youtube Video showing some of the various textures of the desert we rode through, with some... commentary: https://youtu.be/wZWkSW2WaZM And here is a link to the GPS Kevin Adventures site: https://www.gpskevinadventurerides.com/
  4. Perry (on the XR) and I had breakfast at Kountry Kitchen in Ramona, and rode around and had a bit of a locked gate tour, so we made a command decision to push out to Lost Valley, and ran that to the DQ in Anza. Great day for a ride đź‘Ť

    2019 Big Bear Hard Ways

    The only tracks I have worth sharing at the moment for those who may not know the area well. I feel like there was more single track this time around compared to the previous year. Highly recommend a small (plated and street legal) bike. These are highly technical and rocky jeep trails, a good amount of single track, and tons of fire roads and a few paved sections to connect it all. 200+ miles all together divided into 7 sections but it's broken up into 2 big loops that both start and finish at the convention center with 2 bailouts on the second loop. Gold Mountain gets ridden thrice, twice up and once down if you do the whole thing. The full run is doable in a day if you start at the crack of dawn and ride at a brisk pace with little to no stops. Each half loop is easily a half day ride (at a brisk pace) or a full day ride with more stops and/or slower pace. I did the full 200+mi solo but a buddy rider or two is a good idea. All credit on the tracks goes to Big Bear Trail Riders. I apologize if I shouldn't be sharing these, please remove if necessary. I just figured it's all public and well known trails and it's no mystery which trails get ridden each year at this event since it's always the same main trails with minor adjustments here and there due to trail closures. 2019 HW-1.gpx 2019 HW-2.gpx 2019 HW-3.gpx 2019 HW-4.gpx 2019 HW-5.gpx 2019 HW-6.gpx 2019 HW-7.gpx Bail Out- 1.gpx Bail Out- 2.gpx
  6. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Honda Broadens CRF Lineup with Expansive New-Model Launch Largest performance off-road release yet includes new models for diverse applications IRVINE, Calif. (May 23, 2018) – During a recent “CRF Collective” unveiling ceremony at Fox Racing headquarters, Honda announced its most far-reaching range of performance off-road models ever, expanding the group by three and significantly improving the four returning models. Leveraging the brand’s unparalleled experience in the manufacture of dirt bikes, Honda’s performance off-road lineup now includes CRF machines for riding applications including motocross, closed-course off-road, pure off-road, and even dual sport. All seven models are based on the platforms of Honda’s revolutionary motocrossers, the CRF450R and CRF250R. Those two machines return for 2019 but with important updates, as does the closed-course off-road CRF450RX. In addition, Honda is offering a factory-replica version of its full-size motocrosser called the CRF450RWE (“Works Edition”). The trail-ready CRF450X is entirely new for 2019, and it’s joined by a road legal CRF450L that enables customers to connect trails via asphalt. Finally, Honda is also introducing an all-new CRF250RX closed-course off-road machine. CRF450L Dual Sport The trails are calling, and the all-new road-legal CRF450L answers, expanding customers’ off-road possibilities by enabling access to the best riding trails, even when that means connecting them via asphalt roads. Street legality is achieved via features like LED lighting, mirrors, and a dedicated exhaust system. Equally at home in the woods or desert, the CRF450L has a wide-ratio six-speed transmission for maximum adaptability, while a lightweight, 2.0-gallon tank offers great range. Compared to the CRF450R motocrosser, crank mass is up for tractability in technical conditions, where a large-capacity radiator keeps things cool. Color: Red Target Price: $10,399 Availability: September Info: https://powersports.honda.com/2019/crf450L.aspx More pictures, video & specs on the 2019 Honda CRF450L CRF450RWE (Works Edition) For the 2019 model year, you don’t have to be Ken Roczen to enjoy a CRF450R with factory enhancements, as the new CRF450RWE features a number of upgrades based on the bikes in the Team Honda HRC race shop. Rocketing to the top step of the podium through the use of a specially designed cylinder head with hand-polished ports, Yoshimura titanium slip-on muffler, and special ECU settings, this new model offers increased low- and mid-range torque. It also features the same graphics as Roczen’s No. 94 race bike, including a Throttle Jockey factory seat cover.

Color: Red Price: $11,499 Availability: August Info: https://powersports.honda.com/2019/crf450r.aspx CRF450R Already the industry’s top-selling motocrosser and the winner of the 2018 Daytona Supercross at the hands of MotoConcept’s Justin Brayton, the CRF450R receives a number of important updates for 2019. Better engine performance is achieved through a new combustion-chamber shape, as well as improved over-rev characteristics through a refined oil-management system. The frame and swingarm have been revised for optimized rigidity and weight reduction, while the braking system has been updated with a lightweight front brake caliper featuring a large-piston design. As a result of the weightsaving measures, the CRF450R is 1.76 lbs. lighter than its predecessor. For added performance and increased comfort, the 2019 model features new ECU settings, HRC launch control, a Renthal Fatbar® handlebar and adjustable handlebar position. Black rims and redesigned fork protectors are also new. This is how you convert the “Absolute Holeshot” into moto wins.

A true off-road machine that’s ready for racing or trail riding, this model features a headlight, taillight, and side stand, as well as an 18” rear wheel and lightweight 2.0-gallon fuel tank. For maximum versatility in challenging terrain, the CRF450X also features a 49mm Showa fork with dedicated settings, wideratio six-speed transmission, and higher crank mass than the CRF450R. Color: Red Target Price: $9,799 Availability: October Info: https://powersports.honda.com/2019/crf450X.aspx CRF450RX Currently campaigned by JCR Honda’s Trevor Bollinger and Trevor Stewart in GNCC and WORCS competition, respectively, the CRF450RX inherits the same performanceenhancing features of the 2019 CRF450R, including an updated cylinder head and refined oil-management system, while still featuring off-road-specific features like a 2.2gallon resin fuel tank, 18-inch rear wheel, and aluminum side stand.

Equipped with a larger-capacity, 2.2-gallon resin fuel tank, 18-inch rear wheel, and aluminum side stand, the RX makes quick work of challenging situations, its dedicated suspension and ECU settings helping the rider work through even the toughest trail sections.

  12. Summer is winding down which means dirt biking season is winding up! Scoop up the family and haul them over to Vaudois's house. We'll boast about near-misses and crashes of the past and speculate on epic rides of the future. This is an excellent opportunity for new members to meet us in a more relaxed atmosphere rather than meeting up on the dirt just prior to riding. There is a pool, horseshoe pits, a fire pit, and a children's jungle-gym/fort. Please no last minute RSVPs. I'd like to get an accurate headcount a few days before to give me an idea of how much food and drinks to buy. This year the San Diego Dirt Biking Meetup will be extending this invitation to other dirt biking-related groups. Also new this year, we will have one of San Diego's most respected rockin' blues band, 3rd Degree, providing live music from 2-6pm, though we can stay as late as we want. Vaudois and I are sharing the cost to throw this party (approx. $1000). Please help defray the cost by donating some cash when you arrive. I'll cook some burgers and chicken and will have my homemade pinto beans, various chips, condiments, plates, forks, knives, water, along with sodas, beer and wine cooler-type drinks. Though I will have SOME drinks, please bring your favorite drink (ice and coolers will be available) and a side-dish to share (dishes can be doubled): Ideas of optional things to bring: Macaroni and cheese Macaroni salad Green bean casserole Scalloped potatoes Corn bread Cookies Pies Brownies Cut watermelon The address is 2145 Judson St, San Diego. (just south of Genesee and I-163). It's on the corner of Gateshead and Judson streets, if your smartphone map app does not lead you to that address. --David and Vaudois
