It's the descent into Ardenvoir that's shut down. There are signs and personnel guarding the access. We came up Merry canyon to 7804 (great singletrack) to 7801. That's where we met them.

Just got turned around at French corral. No way into Ardenvoir. We had to backtrack to Chumstick canyon and take 97 to Chelan. All routes are closed up in that area.

Duly noted. We have been three of those offenders. We are in Eburg now at the Tav for lunch on day 2. So far no broken bikes or people. Does anyone know whether the route through 25 mile is open yet?

I should rephrase that. Turn out the idle screw (not the mixture screw) until the RPMs drop back to normal. Then fine tune the mixture screw.

Kenda. My second in 11,000 miles. They're cheap and work very well for a 50/50. I was a little higher on the psi today but it still worked well.

Rear exhaust

Do any of you have a stock rear can gathering dust that they might want to sell me cheap? Mine has many rust holes and cracks and is getting unusually loud. I would prefer it not rusty or holey.
