So you and Bundy got in some miles up there last week on the D37 ride, where did you ride? We have a nice loop laid out with lots of single track and dirt roads, not much slab. We are all on plated bikes. Thanks for the offer on the tracks but I don't have a GPS.

I don't know bundy, but i do know he was there. Im sure he can attest to the tracks, sunday was a bit jacked for those short on gas, but overall i thought damon laid out a good weekend. I do also have the roll chart (if i didnt throw it away) need to check. Maybe for your next trip up there. ENJOY & have a GREAT time!

RIDE ON!

Dang Scott, we were up there on the green hill for a pre Fathers day ride yesterday, Slowerthanu and I had a great ride from 8to8. Have fun! There were no other motorcycles in sight, but we did pass a father and his two daughters on the trail riding horses towing a packmule on an overnight Fathers Day pack trip.

6-16-2012 ride

Here's the pics from Saturday's ride, slowerthanu (Adam) and myself started early (8:00 AM) and got back to the truck at dark. We covered 95 miles of mostly dirt with alot of single track in the mix. I rode Adam's Husaberg (2011 570) on some trails and decided that I need one. What a sweet bike, now I just need to sell both KTMs.... I think the Berg, properly set up could be the do all machine for single track and dual sport duty.











Dusty track sequence...





slowerthanu in a cloud of dust







Creek crossing sequence...












It was an awesome day on the green hill, see ya on the trail...
