    Tips for disperse camping in Big Bear area

    That's a great question and I seem to recall posting a thread here in the SW thread about a book that lists all the best camping spots in CA. Search for "camping" and I'm sure you'll find it. I will look myself. As for Big Bear camping spots, I have only stayed at Crab Flats. It's not exactly "wild" camping though.

    Hey Everyone! As always we hope the riding is going well for all of you! The season has been perfect thus far and we have done a lot this summer! Wanted to update everyone with whats been going on in Ecuador. We drove from Colombia into Ecuador, met with the Brosters BMW Riding Club and started another Motorrad Angels Chapter! We've been scouting out locations and yesterday we completed a project near Banos, Ecuador installing filters into communities without clean water. Check out the instagram post below! We are continuing to ride throughout Ecuador before progressing into Peru, so until then keep an eye out for updates and continue enjoying the riding season!

    I have been using these bars for 6 months now and I can say they are great! My wrist doesn't hurt so that is a plus. You really do not feel them working but they are! I like that the steering doesn't feel vague and an extra bit of weight is no biggie in my book.

    Tips for disperse camping in Big Bear area

    Hello everyone, We are planing a quick trip to Big Bear Lake this week end and were thinking about dispersed camping. I found on their website that is allowed within San Bernardino forest and would like to know if some of you have tried and if someone know a trail leading to a perfect wild camping spot near to freshwater ? Maybe I'm asking too much Thanks !

    New 60/40 Adventure Tire from Dunlop?

    An update on this new tire. I actually saw it back in December but I still can't share anything new about it, even its name. But there is a launch date of Oct 9! I get to attend the launch here in SoCal. One of our members got to test them out on his GS in Baja and he reports to like them quite a bit.

    How are the Rallz's holding up?

    I did end up with a set of RallZ on the 990. About 2700 miles on them so far. Did about 1500 of that riding the TCAT. Ranged from sand to easy gravel to nasty loose gravel, to rock infested hills to pavement. All of the miles two up with full camping luggage I'm very happy with how they have performed. Excellent traction. Yeah, sand still sucks, but that's my lack of skill! On pavement, predictable lean in, zero traction issues even on wet pavement (though I don't push it on the wet stuff). I did discover they don't offer much traction on wet logs though! [emoji16] Longevity is a bit to early to predict, but I do think 5000 miles or more is reasonable on the rear. Front maybe not. It actually is seems to be wearing quicker than rear. I'll post some tread depth measurements once I get a chance to get them...a bit of objective data is always good. Compared to my prior favorite, the GT723, I'd say they perform as good maybe better off pavement, clearly better on. My biggest complaint? The front is one noisy tire at 65 plus mph. Really noisy....way more than GT723.

    How High Do My Handlebars Need to Be?

    The higher the risers the shittier the handling, specially in technical terrain.

    300 acres, looks like. Pretty sweet! Although I'd be afraid some one will shriek that they mined lead there and demand it be designated a Superfund site or something.

  25. Sorry to have to say this but have to add Nemo Equipment to the list of companies supporting groups like The Conservation Alliance in shutting down responsible vehicular access to our public lands. These nutjobs at CA are even against mountain bikes. "human powered exploration only." No thanks, I'll buy my tent, bag, pad and pillow from Outdoor Vitals.

    High Sierra 2018

    You’re a bit late to this party... 😴 Try here:
  27. It's New Year's Eve 2019, I'm still fat and lazy from all the eating and constantly on Instagram or Facebook to kill time until January 6th. The start of the Dakar 2019. It's like the Rally season opens with the biggest of all every year. For a few years now I'm following the Rally Dakar and as soon as Toby and Matthias finished I said to myself it's about time. Time to learn how to navigate like these pros, old-school. With endless paper that tells you where to go. Navigation by Roadbook on a motorcycle. In Europe, the best way to learn is by attending the Bosnia Rally, which is a dedicated roadbook training camp. It's about 500 Euro for early birds (600 Euro regular) and you'll get a Roadbook theory training, a great staff including medical support if needed, and of course the chance to ride spectacular tracks in the middle of nowhere. Actually, the tracks are in Bosnia and Herzigovina, but as soon you're there, you're gonna realize how amazing and open field this country is to ride in. So I got myself prepared for my first Rally: • Roadbook, RB backplate and handlebar switch (MK1, Aurora) • Tripmeter (Tripmaster GFX, RNS Electronics) • Fresh Service for the old girl • New tires (went with the Metzeler Unicross in the front and the Karoo 3 in the back due to the lack of options for a 17 inch rear) • Bigger pegs to have a more comfortable stand on the bike (prototyped by SWT-Sports) • Renewed my first aid kit (good thing I checked, it already expired) I packed my things, put everything on the motorcycle and drove 1.200 kilometers to Bosnia and Herzegovina on small roads through Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia and finally Bosnia. As soon as I got there I felt the spirit in the bivouac, over 100 riders as crazy as me. Many simply wanted to learn how to navigate by Roadbook, some were training for bigger upcoming events and some joined the rally while riding in the also offered GPS class, following a line on their Montanas. ☺ The four days of riding went by quickly and you can read about them a bit more detailed in my blog. It's written in German for now, but I’ll translate it as soon as possible and will let you know here in the comments below. Four days of craziness, lots of different terrains to ride in, I loved to race there! Well, actually the Bosnia Rally is not a race, it’s a roadbook training camp organized like any other Pro Rally without the racing part. There was nothing to win, except for navigation skills, riding skills while riding outside of my comfort zone from time to time and tons of new motorcycle friends sharing the same passion. If you’re in the area or can make it to Europe that’s where you need to go. After driving back home to Germany for another 1.200 kilometers through the heaviest rain I ever had to ride in (sorry, I have to advertise, it was really horrible rain: Klim, thank you for keeping me dry ☺), the first thing I did was to register for my next Rally. Guess, I'm already hooked. Next up is the Transitalia Marathon and there is also a Roadbook class, and of course, that’s what I’m going with. Anyone with me in Italy end of September? Which other Rallys can you recommend? And here is one last picture of me stuck in the sand. Eric would say it's not the tires, it's lack of skill. And he's fkn right. But it was so much fun, so I drove all the way to the end of the beach, not thinking about how the hell I could get out of there again. My poor clutch, but still, fun! Every picture used here was taken by Bastian Benjamin Brüsecke, Reinhold Wenzel and Team, they are amazing photographers, you can find the whole gallery on the Facebook page of Bosnia-Rally.

    • This mirror is the product of much frustration- I spent years breaking other designs and wondering what was going on behind me on the road. Eventually, when I dropped my bike and found myself buying two(!) new master cylinders as a result, I decided it was time to make a really good mirror, one that would function well as a mirror, and also protect the bike (and me) from damage.

    • Time, 05:15 h. My alarm clock rings and it’s time for me to get my breakfast in my stomach, take a shower and jump on my bike! The 1,5 hour drive to the TT race track in Assen took me to the TT junior track and the CRT Holland training ground for the CRE track training. Here I met with 37 fellow Suzuki riders. Greeting us where the men and women from Suzuki Motors Holland who set up this training day.
