Question for you guys riding desert

I've watched tons of videos of you guys riding and I just have one question. Are there any trails or certain lines you guys follow? It looks like fun but it also kinda looks like you just ride in random directions then turn and go another direction. I know it has to be a blast but do you guys actually plan certain points in the desert to go to or just ride around until you get tired?

Lots of destinations. And pretty much always on a trail.

The "desert" gives an image of wide open flat area and desolate.

Quite the contrary in the Mojave area there are lots of hills and valleys and vegetation. And a lot of rock crawling.

Thanks Dean. I've never been out west riding but like I said all of these YouTube videos basically show guys riding in a wide open desert then just turning and going back the way they came.

I hear ya Frank but is it even possible to get lost? Seems like if you're using a GPS you would just ride straight back towards your waypoint. If I got lost and tried that I'd have to cut down at least 200 trees.

Re: Question for you guys riding desert

Part of the fun in the desert is getting lost then trying to find your way back to camp. most of the time there is bar or hill you ride to. Have some fun there then so more fun on the way back to camp .

I'm asking all of these questions mainly because my friend in San Diego is trying to get me to come out to visit him and bring my rzr. He has a sand rail but he says he doesn't know much about the dunes. He just got the rail a few months ago. I'm reluctant to go without buying a GPS for the rzr first. I don't want to end up like Beavis and Butthead lost in the desert

Re: Question for you guys riding desert

I have come across many who have gotten turned around in the canyons and spent the night in our desert .Or who got swallowed up by arroyos and broke their front wheels off .A lot of our canyon trails dead end .and once the sun goes down everything looks different .You would be surprised how many people i come across without a gps 40 miles out in the desert .

Thumbs up Re: Question for you guys riding desert

I like to ride out of my gate and turn right, wait, no that would be left, no, right. Anywho, I head down one country road until I hit the power line road then head east, or west, or maybe go straight. Sorry, I just love living out in the boonies! Today with the Grandkids on board we went right and headed for the Early man site up in the Calico mountains. I have a little trail I follow that gives them some hill climbs, downhill runs, and a high speed power line road run back towards the house. It was a bit chilly and the grandson fell asleep on the way back, but we had a fun.

Frank I love the videos and it really gives me a good perspective of the desert. Although I still have one question. Will I be hearing a lot of Rick James "super freak" out there?!?!? Lol

Cool video Dean. Another question I know that's probably stupid but do you guys have to run flags out there by law or by choice to be seen?

Re: Question for you guys riding desert

Flags are pretty much common sense for your own safety as well as everyone elses. Lets you be seen and you will be able to see others. Common sense is enforced in the dunes though. No flag will get you a ticket.

If you can read this, thank a Teacher. If you can read it in English, thank a Marine.
