Raised in So Cal in the 70/80s. We didn't have practice days at the track. During the week we rode at Baseline or I could ride out my garage in the hills above La Verne.

Added reply in a thread Kinda Nutty Seeing These California Tracks Permitting 65/85’s /Amateurs/Novices Whatever-At The Same Time As The World’s Top Riders ? 5/21/2022 5:56 PM

I grew up in So Cal in the 80s. I have not lived there in 30 years. But, back then, open practice was same way. At the time, I never even thought about it. It was not uncommon to show up at Saddleback during the week and ride with people like Ward, Hannah, ... more »

Also sand mtn and mclarty. In terms of tracks, mill creek and McCarty are tops. Then Indian mound. Calhoun is closest but it's small, but draws a big crowd.

Mill Creek is also open. Calhoun is also I think. Talking rock also maybe. Was going to Indian mound but when got bike out had a flat. Too many other thibgs today, don't have time to fix it

I was also gonna mention Durhamtown. Not the views like the pics, and I would not say the accommodations are 2 star hotel level, but you can ride, hunt, fish, shoot, and there's a bar and restaurant.

My son and I did a similar trip from TN years ago. Same time of year. Day 1/395, day 2/Desert, day 3/milestone, day 4/x games downtown LA, day 5/Pala, day 6/Glen Helen REM, day 8/Pismo.

Added reply in a thread California moto trip 7/3/2021 4:33 AM

If you have never ridden in the wide open desert, I highly suggest it. Maybe Soggy Dry Lake. If you never ridden on the beach or dunes, again, highly suggest it. Pismo.
