All LPNF RIDE THURS MORNING - RIPPIN GOOD TIME! COME ON SISSYS!

Glad you had a good ride! I've met people several times from my area when I was out riding sort of far from home. It is a small world indeed! As far as solo ride in the forest? :naughty:not smart! And I say that being an idiot who sometimes rides alone also. I have come so close to heading up there alone, but so far I've stopped myself from doing it. Was one of the people you rode with named Cliff? Just thought I'd ask since IT IS such a small world after all! :ride: I havent yet been up Tejon this year.

I'd love to head up to the forest after a monsoon. I wonder if we will get any before fall. Just smelling the pine trees at this point makes me happy:banana:
I ride solo alot and theres just somthing about it that i love.I take the solo rides real slow and just practice good technique.

I do take some precautions when alone
1. My wife has a trail map highlighted with my usual route and knows to call the ranger station if she has not heard from me by a predetermined time
2.I always have my cell phone
3.I bring plenty of water and some basic provisions incase I'm there a while or need to hike
4. I don't ride anything I don't know
5.Like stated above I just take it easy

I still would not say that this makes it safe, but neither is riding motorcycles period.:shocked:

I actually don't remember the guys names I met up with ,but , if this Cliff that you speak of lives in Castaic, has a teenage son that is super fast, and both of them ride KTM 450's then maybe.

Let me know if you want to head up the mountain some day.

I do the same thing also. I dont highlite a map because :prof:I will NOT ride the forest alone. But I will ride all of Gorman alone, Rowher and property near my friends ranch off Hwy. 138. Oh and away from camp in the desert sometimes. I also tell my Husband what trails Im on and I check in with him every two hours or so. Honestly, if he didnt hear from me after two hours I could simply be broken down and out of cell range. I also tell him details of who Im riding with when it is someone new, like bajataxi. I say where were parked at...his name is ...he drives a....lic plate#....he lives in....his number is....and on dirt bike addicts his screen name is...and then i pack my trusty pistol and freshen up on my martial art moves.
Good thing about Gorman (the park) is almost everywhere I get signal except when tucked down in the ravines. But not in the forest, not much singal at all! The head ons at Gorman suck. I got in one riding alone weekday. Luckily I didnt get a scratch but my bike....Flatlander radiator guard twisted, disc guard cracked and bracket that is welded to the frame that mounts the radiator is buckled for life. It was some IMPACT! Collided with a CR500 in a good place because both of us were in 3rd gear. The impact sent me flying, luckily landing just fine. I had to use wire and a rubber gromet to rig it and that is how it is now anf probably for life:smirk:
Cliff is fast and on a KTM 450 but doesnt have a son. Ya...we should ride sometime! :thumb:
 
Wow! So you could of taken 'me n my Bro' (RTM) out, that day in the Dez.:shocked: I got my eye on you now!:devil:
Yes, I could have:devil:dont fuk with the SUN she will burn ya :moon:

That was a fun ride. Thanks again! I would of liked to have gone up that ledge and explored further where we stopped. But that stop was pretty fun too:cheers:

It was a little hot to be pushing it. That is on the list for the winter though.:thumb:

You are missing one very important item. You need to get a SPOT. The cost varies depending on the current deal. The non discounted price is about $100 for the unit and $100 a year for service. You can add insurance at $13/yr for the costs associated with an incident. A great deal as far as I'm concerned.

I'll ride solo wherever whenever, but I stay away from the insane obstacles. I don't plan on hitting Snowy by myself. I take it easy as well. Nothing like a good 100 miler solo night desert ride. Next month I'll be headed up to norcal and the bike will be coming along. I'm planning on hitting the Downieville trail system and if I have to do it solo I will.

There is nothing like the feeling you get at the end of a tough day when you have finished exploring a new area by yourself.

Im hoping Santa brings me SPOT. But Im always in need of something just to keep the bikes rolling sigh...

Where is Downieville system? There is a lot of up North I want to ride for the first time. Including Tahoe/Reno area. It feels almost weird when Im riding places I have never been and far from home alone. Not often at all do i do it. But I did a couple times in my travels. Just a different feeling then nearer to home and familiar places. I think it is double weird for a girl, perhaps that is part of it. If I saw more women out there by themselves maybe it wouldnt feel so odd. I even feel odd posting here sometimes. But it's feeling more normal now that there are more women posting. They need to post MORE. PROGIRL......:P

I have been thinking about getting one of those Spot thing a mi jigs for a while now. Just When I was ready to pull the trigger they stoped offering the deals. Anyone know where to get a good deal right now.

Speaking of Snowy how bout we organize a little snowy adventure, possibly when it cools down a bit

I've never done it, but heard its fun
 
I believe that it is Tahoe NF. It's on Hwy49 north of interstate 80. Never been there with a dirt bike.

I hear you on spending cash to keep the bikes going. It's the story of my life. :lol:

I think you might need to go over to crfsonly and pull her over here.
 
Im hoping Santa brings me SPOT.:P
I'll try and remember you when Christmas comes around...Her names Emmy but you can call her SPOT if you want...I really don't care and doubt she does either.....:smirk:

I had to add this...In regards to your riding alone: You sound a little adventurous...We (my group) tends to be very protective and not let "anyone" go out by themselves...regardless how good the rider is, let's say you crash get knocked out...you're pretty much done! My 2 cents worth...

Well it isnt very often I take off when Im with a "group" because I have someone to ride with usually. I agree, it's dumb. I am adventourous and I guess a risk taker in that regard. But I really dont do it very often at all, and I only ride the trails I know well and enjoy it! Actually, a few times I rode easy stuff I didnt know in my travels. Regardless, it IS risky and dumb I will admit! Do you hear that Santa? I NEED A SPOT!:hail:

Timo had mentioned something when he and Rolls came by my place over memorial weekend that you had gone out for a ride (I think he said by yourself :naughty:) and the rest of the group were somewhere else so they decided to come meet me. I wish everyone would have come by, thatwould have been a hoot. My place is just across the highway from Means DL. (Boone Road).

FYI Just BE CAREFUL dog gone it! :thumb:
