And go slow the first time out!!!!!!
there is nothing worse than watching a first time duner getting caught by a razor back (the back side of a dune just sheares off) or a witches eye (top of a dune gets an eye shaped bowl).... or just plain loses it.
Look out further than normal. MX'rs are pretty used to it. but trail riders usually take a lil adjustment. and if at all possible keep your ears tuned for long travel buggies.... they usually are hot doggin and going all out.... which means they aren't looking out for your health.
and by all means have fun.....
if you plan on going night riding.... raid the "ricer" isle at autozone for all the lights and flashy night stuff you can get your hands on.... or just pick up some chem lights and zip ties.
btw where are these LA dunes located?
I've got some friends down in shreave and wouldn't mind taking the bikes.
