Are y'all talking about the 10th here? If so count me in. I can also probably go this Saturday.


Hey Mike, congrats on that 300. What year is it? MXC, EXC? ( or XCW or whatever they call 'em now.)

You said you were a 2 stroke guy... Is this gonna be your main trail steed then?

its a spare to go along with the 525 and 250xcfw. Its an 03 300EXC, very nice 1700mi on it and clleeennnn!!! I used to have a 200 too, but sold it to get the 525.

I know all those places to ride, it doesnt matter to me. Maybe 007 to Whiskey.

Im going to Carnegie on the 15th

Carnegie is a hilly place near the Lawrence Livermore Labratory testing site. Between Tracy and Livermore. It's really no place for your 125. You'll be strung out in 2nd gear all day. They hold sanctioned hill climbs there, if you've never seen a alcohol burning 1000 I-4 wedged into a 10' long dirt bike, you owe it to yourself to go. The people that ride these things are worth it alone.

I'm hoping to be riding in Bishop the 14th and 15th.

Bummer, I still like to think my 125 is fast too. I was 14 when I got it and weighed probably all of 140lbs. 7 years and 60 pounds later, I should probably look into a 250 or 450f

If a guy can ride a 125 is awesome. I have a 2000 RM 125 in my garage right now! It hasn't seen fresh fuel in over a year, and the resale value is less than it's worth, but I keep it around for my brothers or friends. I'll get it going and we can have a 125 day! It's just that next to my KTM 380 and CR500's, the bike has to be ridden to high strung, and there are more and more places that I'm faster on a bigger bike.

its fine for a 125, just dont climb the BIG hills, stay on the medium hills and the trails. Its a 2 hr drive and its near Tracy off of I-5. Gonna leave at 6am or so and ride til tired.

:word: There's plenty of stuff to play around on with a 125. The trails are awesome and the mountain-tops are beautiful. Only thing that kinda sucks is how windy it gets.

I've only been at Pismo aka Squidmo since I recently got back into dirt riding. I think I'll just hit up Miami or some local trails on the 15th. I need to freshen up my skills. If anyone is down to ride, shoot me a PM.

Also, question for the mx track guys, Do you still see 125's out there ripping it up? Ive been wanting to get on the track as well.

Yeah, I'm there. Hopefully we can start early; you can't ride all day if you start in the morning. I'm with Mike, I'd like to ride with guys that know the 007 trail, and the other trails in that area. I've only been there once, and it was awesome.

I know them, 50mi ride on a big loop, not too much backtracking. Take a lunch or at least a snack and lots of drink. 3-4 hr ride, maybe less.

Let's decide today to make it Tuesday. I won't be available Monday. But Tuesday is wide open! Mike, what bike are you planning on riding? If you have the stock 2.9g on it or bigger it'll cover at least 60 miles. (In my experience, on my 380.)

Takes about an hour from N Fresno to get to the park spot, 20-30min to get unloaded and dressed to ride. When do we want to meet?

I don't really care. As long as we're riding by 9 or 9:30, I guess.

Going over my bike, I think I'm good to go. But you know 2 strokes.:D Easy to work on and maintain!

MikeinFresno
Nov 10th, 2009, 06:07 PM
it was good once we got going....I forgot my helmet and had a friend bring it up...then one of the bikes a yx250f had valves going tight and wouldnt start hot. After that we got along OK, NOOO dust in the front, but wasnt too bad either. Few downed trees to go around, no one else up there, IROC didnt show.

Guys!!! Im sorry i didnt show, i woke up and everything and was ready to go. Got in my truck and it was being wierd, had a ton of play in the steering and every bump i went over it would pull in either direction. i ended up having my pops help me out and we aligned it and fixed the play and rotated my tires. so its good now after a couple hours of fun. sorry i bailed, i start this post and didnt even show. I WILL FOR SURE NEXT TIME. i know i missed out on a good ride.
