I am currently relocating from Canada to Bakersfield. Don’t have the sled here yet, probably early January I will bring it down. Was hoping on meeting some people on the area to go riding with as I really don’t know anyone here yet.
I ride a 2017 Pro RMK 800 LE 163.

Hey Matt, welcome! I’m Justin, the site admin, and avid rider as well. Your best bet for riding out of the Bakersfield area would be Sherman Pass. It’s a hidden gem down here.
We don’t have a club meeting scheduled yet, but when we do, it’ll be on the front page of the site. Hope to see you on the mountain!December 17, 2017 at 11:49 am #785Matt
Thanks for the info! Looking forward to meeting some people to go riding with. I should have my sled here by mid January.
When does a lot of the riding open up here?

A storm is brewing on the mountain with the promise of fresh snow on sherman pass. I hope your sled makes it down in time for this storm. We have a relatively short riding season and when the snow flys you gotta go to the mountain. Truly a late start this year, but it should be good from here on out to mid march maybe april if the storms line up. The wife and I ride exclusively on the kern plateau, maybe we will c u up there. Have a great season.

oops got my names crossed, I meant to address that to Matt. I’m sure Justin knows all the hot spots, LOL.March 10, 2018 at 8:26 am #802Matt
I am completely moved here. If anyone heads out and would like someone else to head out with them let me know!

Hi Matt, my name is Paul. I’m heading up to Huntington Lake on Saturday along with a friend of mine from Los Angeles. You are more than welcome to tag along with us. Let me know.March 17, 2018 at 9:24 am #804Matt
Thanks for the invite. My parents are here for the weekend. Let me know though for future reference.
Is it necessary to have the machine registered with the DMV prior to going riding?
Haven’t had a chance to get to the DMV for any registration yet.
MattMarch 18, 2018 at 6:25 am #805Paul
Yes, you need to register with the DMV. It’s your green sticker fee. I wanna say it’s $52 for 2 years. Will keep you updated on any future trips. If you have any questions my number is 661-205-4282December 26, 2018 at 10:08 am #2186Matt
I am getting my sled registered here this week. Let me know if ya wanna do any day trips coming up in January.

Welcome MAtt … thinking of riding this Saturday at Sherman Pass. Please look at map.January 10, 2019 at 2:49 pm #4246Paul
I am going this weekend on Saturday with a group, my number is 661-205-4282.January 13, 2019 at 8:45 pm #4666donbrown
Was up there Saturday. At least 5 sled rigs there. For me was mostly trail riding with only 3 feet at the pass and no base.February 28, 2019 at 3:10 pm #12436TC
First I want to thank you for creating this site and keeping it going. I moved down to SoCal a couple years ago from Northern Utah and this site was a major deciding factor in me keeping my sleds (probably not too many guys in Long Beach with sleds). I continue to keep an eye on here for ideas of where to ride and for the riding reports.
Second, sorry for jumping in on Matt’s thread, but being a new guy with no riding buddies down here, I was just wondering if there was anyone headed up to Sherman Pass this Saturday that I could tag along with to get a feel for the area (not looking to bum a ride up, just looking for someone to ride with). Sounds like the snow up there is pretty good this year and I finally have a weekend free to get up there. I was able to get up to Utah to riding once this season already but this will be my first time riding in CA.
Look forward to meeting some of you!
