  1. XR1200™ Events
    Ok, so it seems no one has grabbed EPIC VI yet. You know you want to be there. I guess we just need to start making plans. Bear suggested we hit some of the roads in the beautiful Kern County Mountains outside of Bakersfield for a pre-ride of what might be things to come. Doc, XrRunner, Bear...
  2. XR1200™ Events
    Wow, is this really going to be the 5th gathering of the largest contingent of XR1200 riders? My how time flies. I know there have been some rumblings about our annual Memorial Weekend ride, and CrazyMD called me about this years shindig and what was what. So let's start talking. In the past...

  4. XR1200™ Events
    :nana: Ok, I did it.Not trying to step on anyones toes, but thought it would be good to get a thread going to discuss, argue, plan an Epic Four.I have missed this event and hope to change all of that this year!!!!
  5. General XR1200™ modifications and parts
    Here was my front tire as of Saturday morning: Ok, so I know I'm needing a new front tire, but the rear prolly has at least 500-1000 miles left on it and I would rather replace them together. On Friday night, a buddy of mine with a Road King asked me to accompany him to Palomar. I know how...
  6. General Chat
    We are hitting a lot of music shows lately. Last night Cindy and I went and saw Dustin Lynch (and up and coming country star). It was a pretty good show in a relatively small venue. We were in Row 7 center stage. Tomorrow night it is Sublime, Cypress Hill and Pepper at Cricket Amphitheater...
  7. General XR1200™ modifications and parts
    When I got home from work last Friday there was a UPS package waiting for me on the front porch. In the box was a new set of Race Tech G-3 shocks. Two inches longer than stock, adjustable low- and high-speed compression damping, adjustable rebound damping, adjustable ride height, and preload...
  8. MadDogXR's "Hey, I just spotted an XR. I wonder...
    SO I am buzzing down the loose side of Mt Palomar when I see a Orange XR with some buddy's of mine. I was coming down they were going up. I did a quick Ue and chased them up the hill. I met them on the top of the mountian. It was Geno. I had a good time talking with him. We then rode the back...
  9. Diversity of Motorcyling
    On Monday after everyone had headed home after EPIC Ride III, I decided I didn't quite get enough riding on the EPIC Ride. So I headed back out to the mountains and got another couple hundred miles in. Of course I stopped at the the local biker hang-out for a beverage break. I parked next to...
  10. Trip Reports / Write-Ups
    So I was out and about on the back roads of San Diego County this past weekend. I noticed this land owner had erected this sign on Japatul Road. Strange, since this particular road is not well traveled. It is only a few miles from my house and I ride it at least three times a week. I...
  11. Diversity of Motorcyling
    I ran across these guys last Saturday up near Palomar before I was so brutally apprehended by the law: Yes, thats 4 FJ1200 Yammer Hammers! Pretty cool!
  12. ANNOUNCEMENTS & RULES
    This Valentine's Day, our very own Geno, will tie the proverbial knot with his beautiful and talented fiance, Cindy. The nuptials will occur at an unknown location in the vicinity of Lake Tahoe. It is rumored the chapel they will use is the same one Mickey Rooney used for all of his marriages...
  13. XR1200™ Events
    Don, Geno, By chance is one of you guys taking the lead on this ride? I need to plan for time off and hotel reservation in the San Diego area. I assume the hotels fills up quickly for Memorial Day weekend. Any thoughts on this?
  14. XR1200™ Events
    OK, who all is going to the Flat Track this coming Saturday. I know Geno got his tickets, and I'd bet good money Maddog will be there. We know Announcer will be (DUH) and we'll go ahead and put JoeP on the Maybe list, even though he never really goes anywhere.
  15. Known Problems, Broke Stuff, and Fixes
    Went out riding Saturday, my usual route around the San Diego back country and mountains. In the late afternoon, I was heading home. I was behind an SUV on a two lane country road with a pretty wide median. As the road approaches town, the the two lane goes to four lanes. The SUV takes the right...
  16. Other stuff
    Well for the 2nd time this year Cindy and I took the 2011 Ultra Classic for a day trip around the back country of San Diego County. Did the favorite twisty roads and usual stops. Here's a pic from the start: And one from our first stop at Inspiration Point overlooking the desert between...
  17. Trip Reports / Write-Ups
    Just kidding, nothing different. Same-ol, same-ol. I and others on this forum have posted on this route countless times, and most of you guys know and are probably tired of the story. Instead writing up a long boring trip summary, I thought it would be easier just to say a few words and include...
  18. Trip Reports / Write-Ups
    Okay, had to write this as everyone is waiting for the pictures and I just got home from 3 days of EPIC riding with the SoCal XROG! It is always an adventure! :) MadDog and I ride 200 miles on Saturday to get down to Orange County to make dinner with Street Tracker. But first we had to check...
  19. XR1200™ Events
    OK, I have been quietly planning this ride. Last year we had 11 riders and a big and long breakfast. This year I think we need to break our World Record for most XR's in one place and do a bit more riding. Don't be intimidated as I will do maps so that you can ride at your own pace and end up at...
  20. Trip Reports / Write-Ups
    Saturday I took my usual jaunts around the San Diego back country this past weekend. Saturday I headed east out Japatul Rd., Lyons Valley Rd., Hwy 94 to Campo, to Kitchen Creek Rd., to Sunrise Hwy to Mt. Laguna etc. then home. While crusing along Lyons Valley Rd., I round a bend to find a...
