@Birdi made it here?  I was just working on her bike yesterday, she's a hard core newbie with the right attitude.

Welcome to all the new members, got a family friendly / newbie friendly desert weekend trip coming up in two weeks in Ocotillo Wells, come on out for a day or stay the weekend!

@tntmo I made it! I like that you slipped the "hard core" in there.

Welcome @Birdi. My wife @Angela is a member and I imagine would like to meet other women that ride. What bike(s) do you ride?

Welcome. I hope that is NOT Wierdriders plated bike as i will be not happy with Jim for selling without contacting me.

Either way, ride safe and these are a great group of guys to learn from.

Hello all, super stoked to join the group. I'm a new rider and in the Carlsbad ares. I own a 2021 Africa Twin adventure sports and a 09 CRF 450x. Looking forward to getting out there and meeting you guys.

Howdy! I ride a Royal Enfield Himalayan (411 cc). I’ve been riding since July of this year, and just went to my first adventure riding rally at the beginning of this month, took a beginners dirt riding course there (which I found to be super helpful at giving me more confidence in the dirt), and then road up the Nate Harrison grade a few days ago for my first true dirt riding experience. So far it has been great! Still slow and nervous on dirt, but getting better.

I feel more confident on the dirt than I do the road. I have ridden mountain bikes for a few years now so I think some of that transfers well to riding my dirt bike. I did a course earlier this year in Anza Borrego. I would like to do another course at some point but with my bike and maybe a smaller group or more personalization.
