My cousin and her husband live in Yuma. Just seeing what is around there and what there is to do? I am heading out there late May or earlier June and thinking about bringing the bike with me to ride around out there. Can't wait to see what it's like riding four wheelers in the desert too!:thumbsup:

Well you have Mexico about 10min from Yuma "good eats", Then you can go to the Dunes, that will be a blast for you the dunes are a blast. San Diego is only about a 1 1/2 or so drive. You can go fish the Colorado river, Or just sit around and watch the Jet's fly around from the Marine base. Hope this help out.

Bob,

I can't wait. I would for sure like to see the CO river and such. My cousins husband is a Marine at the base so hopefully can check that out too.

Thanks for the help!

if you do end up coming in the summer, dunes are a great midnight run! 10pm or so until about 5 or 6am its a blast. if you go during the week there wont be a soul out there:drool2:

If you do go to the dunes be very careful it is a completely different type of riding. people die in the dune almost every weekend during the dune season. My wife and I were there with her dad for 20 minutes, and it was our first time. 20 minutes after showing up my wife and I were trying to save his life. He went off a bowl that was ~65' high landed directly in the middle. The Banshee suffered minor injuries while he laid there with a brooken back, broken wrist, concusion, and multiple contusions, as well as his boss firing him for injuring himself. (shoulda been a lawsuit, but there wasn't) It also coulda been a lot worse if he was 10 feet further he would have died coliding with a hil at probably 85-90 mph 20 feet less he could have rolled out of it and been injury free, or under the bike. Take your bowls at an angle and always peak the bowls almost parallel wear a helmet its the law, and have fun (its mandatory) and try to stay away on holiday weekends the death rate usually climbs to above 5 people per weekend on holiday weekends. oh... and SOBE bombs are not legal in the dunes and neither are fireworks, so be careful with those as well and ride with a buddy.
