I was thinking of Stoddard and Johnson although I barely know the area. Rowher Flats I know a bit too well. Perhaps this newbie could join up with some others for a change?

It is allright to be afraid. Ya just can't let fear dictate your actions.

I plan on riding on sunday but don't have anyone to ride with and don't know where to go. Is anyone going to Gorman or riding nearby LA? I hate riding by alone so if anyone wants to ride on sunday just let me know.

Thumbs, his buddy dave and son, + maybe 2 two more, and myself are heading out to corona/ lake street area on Sat. We're going to try and ride just south of werrick rd. on the 15 and off to the left. I don't know the extact street name but saw a bunch of guys out there last weekend while we coming back from elsonore. We always meet up at the green river offramp on the 91 by the jack in the box. we'll meet around 9:30 if anyone else is game. Black dodge w/ XR600,+ Tan Ford w/ CR125, YZ125, XR100

I joined Scar and Thumbs at Lake street last weekend - it was a freestyle scene of sorts.

One jump was about one foot wide and launched the rider near vertical over a chasm with bare box springs at the bottom, ready to impale if you didn't land on top of the cliff on the other side.

Another sick (sic?) jump was an impossible looking long and vertical jump up the side of another cliff. My health insurance doesn't cover it, so I didn't try those jumps.

Even the easier jumps had steep faces that seem to try and slam your handlebars into your chest.

I probably won't be able to ride this weekend, but I will take my daughter (9) riding during the week (spring break) to El Mirage or similar area.

I'm definetly going riding this weekend. Physical therapy is over and I can't wait any longer!!! My buddy and I usually ride out here in Beaumont because it's so close. If I can't get an answer from him tonight, maybe I'll meet you all out there in Corona / Elsinore area... I'll check in tomorrow.

OK - the action is at the TWMC event on Sunday - the DDRT Keg Run enduro.

For details: http://pw2.netcom.com/~sorudne/events.htm

Gyrros - you should check this out - it's alot of fun and inexpensive - $7 or so for a guest ... let me know

Rogue - you should check it also .. a real good time and great folks ... otherwise we should hook up another time .. I live real close to Rowher but have never been there .. would be great if you could show me around ... hopefully I can get to show you some cool spots I've been shown by the So Cal DIRTRIDER.net members ...

William, Holeshot, Scar - why don't you guys come on out for the Keg Run ? It's by Red Mountain ... a cool area for riding ... otherwise - what's up next weekend ? Might as well book in advance !

Can't wait ... finally got the computer setup and I look forward to seeing everyone ... anyone have really good directions ? :confused:

Extreme Trail Ride on Saturday ? Is this a race or just a ride ? Tim Moore explained via e-mail that this an Enduro .. no ?

Let me know Brett and thanks for the pager again ... really appreciate it.

RM Jeff - are you going ? That'd be cool ..

How's it going eel? Is this an enduro race or is it trail riding? Beacause, I don't think I can physically hang that long, on my bike. I am not even prepared for a race (you know, bike set up/tools/cammel bak ). Although, it is sounding very tempting,I feel
a little intimadated by this enduro stuff. But I am geting an itch to go. If it is a race how long is it and is it on sunday? I could only ride on sunday.

Eel- I still cant go. I cant get the range of motion back in my wrist. Strength is still pretty low.
