Always looking for a riding buddy. Part of a deal I made with my wife when I bought the 07 XT225 - would not ride alone. Besides much more fun when there are a few people to explore the trails.
So, if you find yourself in the Orange County, CA area and are looking for a ride please PM or text me. Details below in non-Bot friendly format.
Technically I'm in south OC. Foothill Ranch is at the base, more or less, to Saddleback Peak. We are a short ride to Santiago Canyon and Santiago Road that enters the Cleveland National Forest at Maple Springs. The Maple Springs trail is a great fire road. Not technical but not smooth either. You will test your suspension!
Some great views to be had. Especially when we get up to the main divide and the summit at Saddleback Peak. For a longer outing we can drop down Indian Truck Trail towards Corona. Grab a sandwich / burger then head back.
Yes, even a Grom can make the climb. They were bottoming out every minute so I'd say pass on trying this on a pure street bike.
Looking forward to more trail time.
Oh - and weekdays may be an option. I frequently work from home.
