Dirt Ride at Gorman/Hungry Valley
« on: 10/22/13 08:25PM »
Some friends and I are doing a guys camping/riding Friday Nov 1- sat nov 2. Probably getting there afternoon on friday and camping out. Riding saturday until we get tired and leave.

Camping in Hungry valley, its a OHV, so you dont need a plate, but you do need a spark arrester. Someone in my group is bringing out a quad, so quads are welcome. More details will be available if anyone is interested.

Some pics from previous outings at Hungry Valley

What city's the truck coming from?  Room on it for the DR?  The freeway is BRUTAL on the little 350 single.
Efficiency is beauty.  Patterns rule the world.

Mud, this sounds like fun.  Are you guys riding in?

I have a questions about on/off road tires:  Are you running something like this?  If so, how are they on/off road?

Great place to ride, a lot of fun out there.  As for spark arrestors and the rangers, the last time I went up, the lady at the gate asked if we had spark arrestors but never checked to see if we actually did.  Past the gate, we only saw one ranger go by, and that was about half way through the day.

I am using the rear tire and it works ok. Decent compromise. I put on a more agressive front tire for dirt. A MT-21

We are trucking it out there. No need to waste knobbies on the freeway.

Really?  I must have had a lazy ranger then.   I wouldn't risk it either, I have a spark arrestor in mine so I never worry, just found it nice that the ranger at the gate didn't even bother to question us.  Maybe it had to do with us going on a week day instead of a weekend.

Depends on what your riding, They know what to look for If your on a plated bike they just keep going but old or race looking Mx bikes will get rolled on My buddie even got a ticket for speeding on the road that goes back to Alamo mountain!

'97 CR250R with FMF full system and replaced plastics from when it was supercrossed.   Like I said, I must have been lucky.  I'm green stickered anyways so it's not like they can tell me to go away.   This Friday I'll be heading to silverwood which is a load of fun as well.

Sure, we don't mind other riders.   We will be leaving the O.C area around 8, should put us up there and riding around 9:30, assuming light traffic.  We typically ride the ridge line up over to deep creak (or devils hole, not sure which it is called) and a couple of black diamond trails around the area. (just for the record, that's this Friday, two days from now.)

Ok so my friend and I are leaving sometimes friday. Depends what we do thursday night (haloween). Get out there early afternoon hopefully. I have another friend getting off work and coming out with his quad. Later friday.

We are going to camp/fire/drink friday night and go riding sat morning.

We are going to camp at lower scrub oaks campground.

That is a map but they give you one when you enter the park. I think its 10 bucks a night per vehicle to camp.

Bring water/food/beer.

Chris in regards to tires get Trials tires they hook up great on everything but deep loose sand.  I've taken them in the canyons on the street and lots of off road.  really good for hard fire roads with thin layer of loose dirt on top.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in one pretty well-preserved piece. One should rather skid in broadside thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming "WOW, what a ride"!!!
