I am thinking of living out a little dirt bikin dream. All I have ever ridden is East coast woodsy style stuff and some sand pits in NJ. I have always had the urge to go west and experience desert riding. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your view) my company which I just started at 3 months ago underwent a nationwide downsizing. So I have some free time on my hands now while job hunting.

I was wondering if anyone who is a desert rider would be up for putting up an east coaster for a few days and showing the ways of the west? Maybe even a couple of people and I could jump from place to place and experience a bunch of new stuff. I probably wont do this until I get a job (if I do it at all) lined up and push back the start date.

Any east coasters have the free time and up for splittin the road trip as well?

Just a crazy thought.

r6roadracer, you make it out here to the west coast and we will make the time for you. Also, if possible maybe you could come up north and do some NorCal riding. Awsome! Its only a few hours drive from SoCal. I don't know if you were planning on coming this far west but, if you can make it email me and we will set something up. Paul
