Soboba Trail Ride

Recommended Posts

Anyone else going Sunday. 

We (Getsmacked - Anthony Thomas E and myself) will be riding the hard route then possibly do a second loop on the easy loop. 

Getting there about 6am to get our bikes in line. 

2 years ago I did this ride in the rain. Probably my number one best ride ever. 

Anyone want to join us. 

Must be an advanced type of rider.

Everywhere is really good this year. 

Looking forward to riding it on the new 300. 

2 years ago was on the WR450F. 

That bike is a lot like a tractor. Strong but heavy and will do anything. 

The 300 feels more like a Mountain Bike in comparison. Light nimble and quick. 

I’ll post pictures.

Dirt was perfect. Rode a mix of the regular and Black Diamond. Very challenging up and down hills on the Black Diamond trails. 

Just a few pictures

Nice, Kenny! How'd you like the 300 on those trails?

The 300 did well. I went the wrong way on the pipe with the Pro Circuit. It’s all top end. 

Will be putting a Knarly on as well as a Recluse in the next week or so. 

300 for single track D37 Tecate stuff. 

500 for D38 sand dune longer rides. 

Only getting about 25 mpg on the 300. The 500 is about 50. 

No substtite for raw tourque in the sand (500)

The 300 gets hot quick when pinned in the sand.  It’s so good in the tech stuff. So is the 500 but just a bit heavier. 

The 500 is getting the same Suspension setup as the 300 this weekend. 

Makes for an awesome 2 bike garage. (As well as my vintage 250 WR250 2 stroke flat track bike)

You and George need to ride it. This offer is open to all who promise not to wreck it to feel what it’s like  

Firm but plush. Can’t bottom it out and never out  of control.

Xcw tpi planned for later this year and same setup you got on it.

Don’t do it(TPI). 

Find a 1 hour 18 like I did.

Kidding. I like to get stuff figured out. Good luck with that one from what I’ve read about it. 

Supposedly Slavens Racing has a good Tuner for it. It’s a little over a grand. 

But we both have the sickness and the budget to build nice toys.
