I'm sitting here in downtown Denver and it's snowing like CRAZY. I have about another 6 to 8 weeks before I'll be riding in the mountains.
Your clips brought a tear to my eyes.
By the way, which side is the throttle on again?

Believe me, if I wanted to be cruel I would have mentioned the beautiful weather we've been having out here (last weekend it was 80 degrees at the beach!) and describe the awesome traction the moist and dustless desert trails provide after a nice rain, but I wouldn't want to do that…
This has me thinking about you guys stuck inside. Why not set up a vacation type deal out here next winter, kind of like the Moab trip you guys did last summer? I would be more than happy to take a week or two off work and take anyone interested to all the best trails southern California has to offer. We could go to a different location every day for weeks and still not get to see it all.
Just food for thought.

The desert footage was shot about five miles north of Victorville, CA, at Dale Evans Road (out by the Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Museum), very near Bell Mountain.
I'm going to try to ride again this weekend (rain is in the forcast) and get more footage. Maybe in the snow???
Thanks for the nice comments.

I did manage to get footage of our morning warm-up ride, complete with a almost endo when I came across a major rain rut at the bottom of a ravine. Unfortunately, the almost get-off was the highlight of the captured footage.
I was soooooo bummed when I found out I did not get the good stuff on tape. For the better part of the day I was saying to myself as I was climbing hills and ripping up killer trails, "That's gonna look good…", but I got none of it.
Lesson learned: hide the camcorder on the ride up to the desert. I will post the footage I have tonight and let you know it's there by replying to this thread.
Thanks for the interest!

Thanks again for the offer. I am still having space problems and still trying to work out a solution. Maybe I can mail you a CD full of footage and you can post the ones you like?
My buddies and I are still working on a date to come ride Moab. Looks like April… I'll get busy finalizing a date.

I put the two videos you posted on our server here: http://www.utahmoto....os/sandwash.avi
and here: http://www.utahmoto....t_hillclimb.avi
If you would like, you can upload them to your server, I'll move em onto ours, and you can open up yours for newer videos. It's the archaic way, I know, but I'd sure like to see more of your vid's!
Lookin forward to riding with you soon.
