Any Socal riders or organizations?

Are there any riders in and around Orange County who like to ride to get away from the city or are there any Socal adventure oriented forums or groups you can turn me on to?
Thanks

I haven't found one yet. There are BMW clubs. There are Orange Co guys that show up at Newcombs Ranch on Sundays and during the week, Thurs lunch. Mixed bunch that goes camping and touring.
Strom guys are too independent to form a bike specific association?
Depending on North OC you may head for the San Gabriel Mts or So County you might do Hwy 74 over the hill to Palomar and San Diego back country.

There is a meet up group called Fast Far...but I can't remember the whole title. They are riding to Alaska and I believe stopping in at the Cache rally on their way..

thanks for the tips. Not much for big bike adventure riders in SoCal it appears.

Oh, there are tons of ADV bikes in So Cal. Have out checked the other Stom forums or ADVRider forum?
There is always making an offer to have folks joining you for a ride. Post a date and time and hope for the best.
There are other groups too, like the District 37 Off road folks. Prospectors MC club. Lots of dirt there.

If you're on Facebook, there are a couple groups you can check out. I've joined them on one ride. Just make sure you the ride you join is "big bike friendly". I live in the high desert.

yea. Seems to be a blending of dual sport and adventure categories. All Ive found groups for smaller off road street legal dirt bikes running very rough trails and desert sand. Im looking for big bike adventure riders for unpaved, 2 track but not rough and tumble dirt paths. Ive been a member of the strom and ADV forums for a while and asked the questions there as well. Still not much I can find.

rkruz, I'm in San Diego and while I'm pretty much a commuter, I do like to get out for a pleasure ride now and again. I've returned to riding after a couple of decades and haven't taken the bike off the pavement yet, but am interested in learning, perhaps in small, manageable steps. I have enjoyed riding roads like De Luz, Highland Valley, Wildcat Canyon, and the 79 and 94 ...

73,
Mike

I'm in Inland Empire, lemme know, we can gather a bunch of us SoCal Peeps up and go somewhere. Start our own club. You can be president. I'll be the guy who comes up with cool ideas but has no actual responsibility for anything. But I'll show up and ride.
