  1. This is not going to be good for people looking for a new unit later this year... Prices are already $$$$
  2. I had this same quandary about 2 years ago, I decided to go the side x side route as we often do some other riding from time to time that is not in the sand. I thoroughly enjoy the ability to just throw on some sand tires and go to the dunes or dirt tires and go out through the dirt. That being said it has not impacted the unmet need to drive a newer Funco...
  3. How did they work? I think you guys pulled up to the swing set as we were getting all the kids into the cars. Meant to come say hi and introduce myself but well... Kids.
  4. I may or may not have knocked down a few of said cones on the top of said dune...
  5. Thank you for setting this up and sharing for us Pete! Now I really cant wait to get out this week.
  6. I would say Dumont is going to be closed the week before Christmas, but that is because we are going to be there the same time and we enjoy the small crowd lol.... Totally messing around thank you Pete for keeping us up to date.
  7. I used to ride a YZ125 way back out there lol I would richen up your mixture a little bit but like Pete mentioned Sperry Wash is cool. You can also just ride around the outside of the dunes, there are some really run roads/trail out around the north pole and the north size of the dunes around the fence line.
  8. I would take the 210 east to the 15 North. Then take the 15 all the way to Baker where you can take HWY 127 between the Mad Greek and the Mexican restaurant.
  9. Love these trip reports! Helps get me through to the next trip.
  10. Does anyone know what happened to the gentleman who crashed is blue SU car Thursday (11/21) morning?? Wanted to make sure he was ok.
  11. We got some rain and the sand is wet but the sand is smooth and the temps are perfect
  12. Tried, but I guess we need to get into the crane business before we have that kind of $$
  13. I am 100% for the off weekends... Can never get a good fast ride in on the crowded ones, since you feel like someone is always going to come over the dunes into your line. Im also not that much of a fan of having to check traffic from right to left as Im leaving camp like Im merging onto the freeway.
  14. Just thought I would share a quick walk around the new 2 seat can am build by funco for my pops. Came out really really nice
  15. <------- This is what that road currently feels like hahah
  16. Took a day trip to get in a quick sand fix. Came out Friday 9/27 leaving early to get some breakfast in Baker before heading out for some sand therapy. Got to the entrance road around 9 and let me tell you the summer has not been kind to that road at all. After all the change and everything that was in the cup holders rattled out all over everywhere, we made it in and started unloading. The temp was awesome at 9 and started getting warmer. It wasn't until the 2pm mark where things started getting pretty warm. There was a ton of growth all through the dunes, around on the flats and anywhere water could settle enough to grown plants. Those summer dunes were soft in places and there were ledges, drop offs, and witch eyes everywhere!!! Just about impossible to get a real flow and find any good lines. But being in the sand was worth all of it!!
  17. Just went out on Friday, let me tell you that road is BEAT!!!!
  18. Ive used G1products 844-444-1776. They have come up with some good stuff
  19. Thanks for all you do to keep the site alive!!! Donation added.
  20. What is it about this place that always has us coming back? As a younger kid we would start our trips Wednesday night and have the entire place to ourselves until Thursday evening or even Friday morning. I still love the fact that on an off weekend we can go out and only have about 5-6 camps sharing the entire place. The terrain variance from almost flat desert to huge sand faces is memorizing! I love the way the wind has built the transitions to be so smooth from turn to turn, it is something that I have not been able to duplicate anywhere else. The amazing freedom you feel when you go out on that early morning ride on a motorcycle, being able to turn where you want, and go any direction with no trail holding you back. There is something about this place that is always different but always the same.
  21. I have been prepping for a small back packing trip up to Little Lakes Valley in the Sierra's. Finally getting my gear out for some repairs and getting used to walking with a backpack again. Sitting in an office chair all day is rough ya know... But getting up into the mountains and doing some fishing and relaxing should do the trick!
