Squishy,
Yes you can try it when the conditions warrant it! I'm surprised I never went down! I did slide sideways into a wall on a slippery climb.... Elbow, knee, and handlebar hit the mud while I was still vertical, pushed off and kept going! Slippery slides nasty goop! Fun shit!

Saturday Rodgers Camp

We are going to do this again this Saturday!
Rodgers Camp and ride around!
Weather looks way better than last Saturday!
Times to be determined soon.... I have to find out a few things but it will be close to the same as last time!
We'll meet at Coleman's then park in Rodgers Camp and ride from there! Or we can just meet at Rodgers if you don't need to eat....
Who's in?

Lucas7336,

First Post congratulations! Noobs are allowed haha. If your an adept off road rider you will be fine. Paramount is new or newish Knobbies, other tires than full knobbies will just be frustrating or get you hurt. I can only assume by the amount of rain they have had, the mud will be slippery! Again!
I'll keep this updated as to when... the only other riders I know that are going are dirt only, no dual sport guys so far!

In that case, I might wait till it dries out a bit. Have fun guys.

It was really good up there Wednesday and Thursday. Poured all of last night, we didn't ride today. Packed up this morning around 10 when the rain stopped and are back in Bend now.

Lucas7336,
Probably a good call for tomorrow! I'm going with two other dirt riders that have been riding dirt for years.... It's fun out there and there is always people around! Just a good idea to ride at a pace that is comfortable for the whole group with like bikes and skill, esp in the dirt! ADV riding is a bit different in that skills are key but the pace is a bit slower and everyone sticks together hopefully! We all know the route, turns and predetermined stop points etc! What do I know though.... you could ride circles around us all!:loll
We'll catch up in the future and throw down some miles!

Lucas, Good call! Still very wet and deep puddles... plus we did the entire loop! Jordan Creek was open and a few new routes to the bottom! lot's of fast riding, still sore. Rode for 5hours 11-4 and it rained from 2 on, lightly
though! Bikes were less dirty last week than this time, damn that place is muddy!

I'm going to be riding on Saturday, staging at Roger camp around 10:30. My usual riding partners are out of town so I would welcome anyone that wants to join me. I have a general idea of a loop but would be up for suggestions - I want to head back home around 3:30. Send me a PM if you're interested.

Looks like there are a few of us for tomorrow. I for one will be stopping at Coleman's at ~9:15a for a little grub before meeting up at Rogers at 10:30a.

Just a reminder I'll have my XR4 hanging off the back of a Subi Forester.
