So Trabuco Canyon Road does not have a gate right at the entrance where you get off of Live Oak Canyon Road. The gate on Trabuco Creek Road is farther down the trail in it is the last maybe 20% of the road before you get to Holy Jim Falls and the end of Trabuco Creek Road which is Horsethief Canyon. The benefit here is that if you just come to ride Trabuco Creek Road you can get 80% of the ride in then turn around and come back and that's enough dirt bike riding after work.

Ya f*cks

since I'm trucking up the 2-stroke, I will likely just meet you guys at the best western...

then I'll leave my truck there and ride out to the desert...I have a 90-110 mile range

<a href="" target="_blank" class="new_win"></a>

he sums it up...there's a prison, smooth graded desert roads, silver saddle ranch (a remote resort area), the desert turtoise area, Cal City MX, and of course, amazing views of the desert.

moto geo makes it look more exciting than it is LOL...I remember the off-roading being the usual open desert with some smoother sections from the city setup

but he shows you can only make a dual sport trip as good as you're willing to make it...there's terrain to see and things to find...just gotta ride and see what happens. But after watching that video, I would kinda like to spend a weekend out there...I'd likely bring the Vstrom for some light off-roading, but also ride pavement to Randsburg, the Mojave airport/boneyard site, boron abandoned prison, edwards air force base...then also take the dual sport out to the husky monument, cuddeback dry lake bed, and Trona pinnacles.

Ya most of the time they close Maple Springs due to can get through most of Trabuco Canyon

Sunday! Sunday! Sunday!

Easy breezy, local, noobie Trabuco Creek run

Where: Meet at Cook's Corner
When: 5:30pm on Sunday 3/18/18

all noobs are welcome - plated dual sports, adv bikes, plated MX bikes, supermotos, electric bikes, 4x4's, pre-runners, subaru's, etc.

if you have a plated vehicle that can go off road, you're welcome to come along

ride 'til 7 and go's mostly flat, but hard pack and washboard on most of it will be super bumpy

Do the Drz yourself lol

Does it fire? I have an ultrasonic cleaner you can borrow

Naah...I'd visit there but not retire there

Went in 2008...did my wheelie on the other side of the world though on a scooter LOL

Daylight savings means light until 6:55pm!!!

Next Saturday or Sunday 5:30pm - 7:00pm Trabuco Canyon run!

Then in a month or two with light until 8pm we can run to the peak at 5:30pm and be down before it gets dark!

negative...too many wheels!

Friends wanna go to "Price is Right" filming on Sunday, so right now I am thinking ride Saturday... working til 9:15 on Friday so probably just gonna sleep at home and drive up Saturday AM early... although possibly drive up late Friday and setup the back seat of the truck for sleeping

Ya definitely not dark, cold, and rainy...I rode Trabuco today and it was not fun with cold soaked gloves, socks, and crotch

Oh it looks like it will about tomorrow morning (Sunday) instead?

KSU 7:30am from Maple Springs visitor center?...I need to be back to ~ Cook's by 10am for work

  However, I'm game to ride with you on Sat after 5 PM.

5:20 tomorrow??

Hmm....that may work if my shock comes back in time

Trona pinnacles!!! Let's go there!!!

That is a perfect example of what it is to have a dual sport and live in Orange County. 45 minutes will get you to the trailhead at Maple Springs but add another 30 minutes and you are past the Cajon Pass add another 30 minutes and you are at Trona.

But yes I have also been to California City once and it was an excellent spot for new people because there's lots of flat long desert roads. There are some more technical spots up in the hills.

Rogue I have also been to Ocotillo Wells, Gorman, Kramer Junction, Barstow, ridden from Palmdale to Vegas, ransburg, Twentynine Palms, Mexico, and Beaumont once. I have also been to the Cajon Pass and the San Bernardino mountain range although not that far towards Big Bear

You should really just join advrider and visit the West section. There is a ADV bike newbie training day this weekend and you should definitely go. There is also an annual noobie rally, a Death Valley Rally, a Pahrump rally among others

Btw OC 405 is going to change quite a bit soon
1.) Current HOV sticker program expires in January (only last year plus new vehicle purchases will get a sticker good til '22)
2.) How lanes from seal beach to 133 getting converted to toll road


@Rogue/ootv/fastmoto - anyone down for a quick run this weekend? I am working down at 5 sat/sun

By late March there will be 7pm from March <-> Sept I will be riding 5-7 or 5-8pm every other weekend for sure!

In the mean time: March/April/May will be the last few desert trips until it gets hot; this includes long touring rides on the Vstrom. jun<->Aug will be in the forest (San Bernardino and Cleveland) and coastal touring rides. By September/Oct it's desert season again  8)

Hahaha...thanks Todd - I started I'm your garage with some pants and goggles from team Motocutz!

@Rogue - consider motion pro - the tools are ultra light and the opposite side doubles as an axle nut wrench

Exactly... Santiago is just close... it's a quicky rip that you can ride part of the day and be home for lunch (or breakfast?). I rode Santiago and surfed the same day then went out the same night

Mojave is amazing!!

The pretender is going to hate me..."this is why you have multiple dirt bikes LOLOL"
