Save Johnson Valley Fun Ride a Huge Success

Recommended Posts

3000 PLUS PEOPLE ATTENDED AND 300 HAND-WRITTEN SCOPING LETTERS WERE COLLECTED

THE TWENTYNINE PALMS, CA MARINE CORPS BASE IS PROPOSING AN EXPANSION THAT COULD INCLUDE THE JOHNSON VALLEY OHV AREA. JOHNSON VALLEY IS THE LARGEST OPEN AREA IN THE COUNTRY, LOCATED JUST EAST OF LOS ANGELES, AND IS A MECCA FOR OFF-ROAD RECREATION INCLUDING MANY EVENTS LIKE OFF-ROAD RACING AND COMPETITIVE ROCK CRAWLING.BAKERSFIELD, CA

(December 16, 2008) BRP/Billet Racing Products, Inc and American Motorcyclist Association, District 37 (AMA D37) teamed up this weekend to put on the “Save Johnson Valley Fun Ride.” The ride was held at Cougar Buttes in the Johnson Valley OHV Area. An estimated 3000 plus people attended the event. The fantastic turnout was a testament to how important this area is to the entire OHV community.

The main goal of the event was to raise awareness about this issue. It is very important that the OHV community, as a whole, be involved in the public process the Marines are going through in their expansion efforts. The public has three opportunities to shape the outcome of this expansion effort. We can make specific scoping comments, respond to the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIS) and lastly respond to the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS). Both the Off-Road Business Association (ORBA) and AMA D37 will have template letters available for their members and the general public to use on their websites throughout this process. “Giving the OHV community the education and tools to be a part of this process is the goal of both ORBA and AMA D37. We believe getting end users involved is very important in this fight” stated Jerry Grabow, AMA D37 Off-Road President. AMA D37 has also launched a new website, www.savejv.com, and all of the template letters will be available on that website as well. We encourage everyone that wants to see continued public recreation in Johnson Valley to visit the website and send their own personalized letter.

Besides raising awareness about the issue, another goal of this event was to unite the entire off-road community while at the same time providing a weekend of fun for the entire family. There were things to do for every type and skill level of off-roader. We had a kid’s track, several motorcycle loops, an ATV/UTV loop and two 4 wheel drive runs. Other attractions offered at the event were a rock crawling demo and trials riding demo. Jim Rios, President of BRP stated “I am very proud of how this event brought together all aspects of the off-road community. Together we are a much stronger force.”

      Submitted for your approval, my 2009 Joyner T2 1100.  I'm only selling it because I recently purchased a Kawasaki Teryx, and the Mrs says one has got to go.  I was the 3rd owner I believe.  It is definitely used, but I have tried to maintain it to the best of my abilities.  I would say it is in fair shape for the years and the miles.  The thing runs and sounds great.  It always turns heads at every group ride I've ever been on.  It has 30" maxxis zilla tires all the way around, except for the spare,  fairly new wheel bearings all the way around, and a fuel controller from SilverBullet so you don't have to worry about the O2 sensors or any of that nonsense.  Any questions please feel free to DM me here.  I know this is a new account.  I hadn't been on the boards for a couple years and cant seem to recover my old login.  I used to go by ILFarmerT2 and got a lot of good info from the joyner board.  I am hoping to get $3000 for this rig.   Machine is located in East Central Illinois.   Thank you.

      2003 Mule 3000 idles fine and runs fine once in motion, but sputters and tries to die at takeoff. It will idle fine when put in gear, but as soon as I press on the accelerator it will die if I don’t choke it. The choke doesn’t seem to be reacting as quickly as before either- it takes a few seconds at full choke for the rpms to increase. Once in motion, it runs fine again. I just rebuilt the carb, new air and fuel filters, and battery. Any suggestions?
