Thumbs up Ridin big bear!

Went ridin in Big Bear, Ca. Last two weekends in a row. Its so beautiful and perfect up there right now. I started out at the bottom, rode the twisties, stopped at a nice place fueled up, had a GREAT burger, then hooked up with some (at least 15) KTM dualsports goin down main street. Man they looked dirty!
We stayed on thew pavement for a while, but they musta saw my sweet lookin blue 08 KLR, and signaled for the crew to go offroad.
Goin down the backside i passed a 400suz ds? i think... travelin with a 06-07 nice black n grey KLR!.... i wanted to stay withem the rest of the way down the backside of Big Bear but, well you know, i didnt know them.... whatever....damn i shoulda stopped em, i know.
Ended up crossin hwhy38 - to hwhy 330, using 1n09 fireroad....AWESOME!


Any riders in So-Cal wanna meet up for a nice mountain ride n some water crossings, about 8-10 of them lemme know! theres still a little snow up there but the trails asre nice!

I would love to join you. I live in Fullerton and just got my 09 KLR a few weeks ago. I should be done with the 500 mile break-in this weekend and will be looking for longer and longer rides. I worked at Valley of the Falls a few years back and love that hole area. My Dad rides a DR 650 (I try not to hole that against him) and we try to ride every weekend if not every other. Maybe we could meet a Flow's at Chino airport for a meet and greet some time soon?

That would be great! Im sure this happens alot but, we talk alot about gettin out often but never do. The weather is only gonna get nicer. I usually have every other weekend off so keep in touch, and bring a friend. My buddy rides an xr650r and can only get out sometimes. Lets do the Big Bear run at least once!

Thanks man! You never know. I know lots of folks down your way. Let me know when you guys go. I probably won't be able to go, but it's nice to be asked.

I love that area...spent a lot of time hiking and camping around there when I was a kid and lived in San Diego. Perfect for the KLR.

Hey screaminsal, my Dad and I are doing a quick ride on Sunday with another KLR pilot I met a year ago. Going to Flo's Airport Cafe. If you can make it we should be there about 9 a.m. Flo's is at 7000 Merrill Ave. Chino, Ca 91710. Cross streets are Grove Ave. and Airport Dr. Hope to see you there, and safe ridding!
