Otay Mountain Ride Tomorrow on the XR400!

I didn’t write about this earlier, but last week I picked up a new dirt bike. I got a ’97 Honda XR400. after doing some research – this is the best dual sport bike you can possibly have. Oh, did I mention it is a street legal plated bike. There was a law that changed around 2005 where you could get a dirt bike plated so you could use it on and off road. You can’t do this anymore, which makes the bikes that got in before the law change worth solid gold. I found it on Craigs List for $1750! Similar ones are going on CL and ebay for over $3000! I picked it up from a guy who took great care of it, and put on about every single aftermarket part they make for it and bored it out to a 430cc. Translation – This thing hauls ass….serious ass.

Anyway, tomorrow we are heading out to Otay Mountain down the 5 to the 905 east. Apparently you can ride trails for miles and get up on the mountain that overlooks the mexico border. There is an old fort up there from WWII that was a lookout for submarines off the coast.

Here is a post on Dual Sport SD from some guys that rode the trails. Will post up some pictures and and a review of the ride tomorrow…wish us luck!


This is my blog. I started it back in 2006 when I was finishing my undergrad at SDSU, kept going as I started my career and completed my MBA, and what do you know I'm still updating over 10 years later... It contains a little bit of everything about me - I'm an opinionated asshole sometimes, definitely a nerd, a gamer, a husband, a manager for a consulting company, a DJ and a musician, a grease monkey and a motorcycle rider...and a whole bunch of other things that probably are too offensive to mention. This blog has a lot of stuff I find funny, a little I find serious, and tons of information about my various and plentiful hobbies. I hope you find something here that's interesting to you. I'd love to hear from you, so feel free to comment or contact me! Thanks for stopping by!
