Because you were trying to climb the hill, and you were spinning your back wheel. Angular momentum is a function of wheel velocity. You're bike will become increasingly more stable in the sand as your speed increases. The throttle is your friend.

Don't know about the dirt between Jeremy and East, but would assume it is open.

Do you suppose that is same database Arlo Guthrie is on for litterin?

Camping sounds like a plan! I'll invite myself as well, as long as there's plenty of steak and beer/wine!

Anyone riding this weekend?

The trail above the B is open all the way to the main road. If I remember right, that was a fun, technical ride that was not too long to do. If anyone is free, I'd even do it tomorrow evening!

Still waiting for a few ods and ends to show up. Throttle cables, spark plug, water pump impeller. Looks like your gearing up for a longer ride. Where you headed?

Wolf Creek Pass open

From today's Trib:

Wolf Creek Pass on State Route 35 will reopen from its seasonal snow closure on Thursday morning.
The pass southeast of Kamas closes annually because of heavy snowfall in the Uinta Mountains. The Utah Department of Transportation says it would be cost-prohibitive to keep the road open year-round.
The pass reopens at 10 a.m. and will remain open through fall.

That melted quick. I was up there two weeks ago and there was still a foot of snow. It may not be as much fun this time BR I think last time you were on an orange bike.

Yep, that's why yestersday I did not do it on my own. It is worth noting this time I have decent tires on the V-Strom and I am much better at this stuff then I used to be.

I rode part of the trail going down it, starting at the road. A few puddles of mud was all I've found. I figured if at the top it's dry, and at the bottom it's dry...it should be dry all the way! If you want to find out for sure, I'm game for this weekend!
