Hi, my names Bobby and I am stationed at Edwards AFB in Southern California. I have been riding dirt bikes for a few years now and decided to sell my 91 cr250r and get into a tdub. So glad I did! This bike is amazing! I have 100 miles on it already and can't get enough. Couple questions, first are there many of you from California? I am looking to get to know some locals so we can plan weekend trips all around the area. Second question, are these bikes indestructible or what!? I know I should baby her for awhile but I assume the break in should be like how you ride it daily. I commute 5 miles to work and 5 miles back daily so its not too hard. But when I wake up in the morning I have lots of desert I hit. Tons of trails around here. I am also looking for a large storage box for the back that I can throw all my camping gear into, any ideas? Well I am anxious to hear from you all.

Plenty of us. Several from your immediate area, more or less. 6 or so from the Victor valley and several from the Antelope Valley as well.



Thank you for your service, and Welcome Aboard.

Hey Bobby,



Welcome into the forum. I'm retired Navy myself (3.5 yrs ago). I'm in the Victorville area. I go to Lancaster periodically as both me and the Mrs. have family there. Hooking up for a ride sometime sounds great. Talk to you soon.

Glad to hear there are a few local riders! I will definately want to do some group rides whenever possible. I have done the rubbermaid action packer mod and so far it seems to be working well. Next I am looking for a gas can mod to hold an addition 1.5-2.5 gallons of fuel for longer trips. Is there a section in the forum for get togethers and rides? That would be awesome to get some local people to chime in and see what their thoughts are for this summer.

Hope to put a group ride together up at our place in Independence (40 miles south of Bishop). Not sure if it will happen this year as I'm still remodeling up there. If I have a pre-ride ride I'll let you know.

Independence is a good little ride from edwards afb. That would be a great warm up ride thru red rock canyon. would like to hit the rubicon this summer and camp out at one of the lakes they have in the trail.

Howdy from the Boont region! I’m Nor cal, and am looking forward to ride events once I get my act together with a trailer, etc. TW’s are not indestructible, but damn tough! Low & slow is fun, & I am a little envious that you have desert to ride, you are going to luv that bike for that! m.

Hey Bobby, you're not one of those pilots that flies up the Owens Valley, sees me fishing out there, and comes in real low and scares the crap out of me, are you?

I think it's part of the training curriculum.



I've seen some impressive military flying skills applied to scaring the crud outta lone civilians.



I'm convinced that they get extra points if the target is horseback.

I had one put me in the drink once...south fork of the Kern River at Kennedy Meadows. Heard a rumble from upstream, by the time I turned around he was on me. I coulda hit him with a jar of Pautzkes.

I am a prospective buyer who lives in Huntington Beach.



If anyone sees any good deals on TW's locally, give me a shout. It'll be my first bike, so used preferably.
