Or 1st week of Aug. Will be in Orange County, and would like to hook up with someone who knows the area. My Bro and I would like to go to Ocitello Wells, we think(spelling?). I've heard a lot about Kennedy Meadows, but that seems like a really long drive from Orange County. Any suggestions?

Keep an eye on this forum. We have rides in So. Cal. almost every weekend somewhere. It may be a little hot to go to Ocotillo Wells during this time of year.

You are welcome to join us.

Thank you, I'll keep an eye on the board. Where will it be cooler to ride than Ocotillo Wells?

That time of year, almost anywhere. You might try Silverwood Lake, Big Bear area or Gorman. Anything in the mountains. We don't have anything planned after the Big Bear ride, but, this could be a good excuse to plan something. Wer'e easy.;)

I'm convinced about the Dez, so we'll be going to Gorman Friday July 3rd.

Mr. WR, sadly I'm still riding my XR 250. I've gotten used to it, but I've been missing the Gas Gas. It's taken a SRC fork brace to really make it ridable.

I've been getting pretty well spanked in the races I'm doing. Last week I got fourth place at an ISDE, on silver, so that wasn't too bad, but it was pretty technical.

There has been rumors flying of the new Husqvarna four strokes. Sounds like there 250 thumper may actually get released this fall, so I may go Husky.

Roosta -- just saw that you're visiting. Of course we can do our post to show you some hospitality down here in the OC region -- right Thumbs, Scar, Ol89r, PlaceLast, Eel, RmJeff, etc? What EXACT days are you in town, and which are you able to ride? (I'm assuming July 3 was a misprint?)

Just an FYI, for those that are interested. . . .


Myself and a bunch of folks are heading up to Pismo for a little dune riding. Most everyone that goes (80%), is riding some sort of MX bike with a paddle tire. We'll be there August 10, 11, and 12. If anyone is interested let me know and I can post more info. If not, well, you'll know were I'll be!! ;)

Looks like my available riding time is shortening. I will be able to ride Aug 3, which is a Friday. I've lined up one local for that day, he lives a 30 minute drive from Gorman, so it sounds like that's my destination.
