LOL,
I forgot to mention the meeting point was a dinner, around noon
The goal was to avoid having 40 riders at the same time on the same trail or in the same mud hole

Geez, I so hate to hear of someone getting road rash but the poor girl who fell off the back of a bike on the Queensway last night, wearing a dress, has got to be in horrible shape now... and possible spinal injuries too.

Poor girl.

Asshole rider who let her get on the bike dressed that way.

Absolutely right...
I saw a big pic in a newspaper, about the "ride for Dad", showing a women (a singer I guess, someone famous at least) dressed to go to the beach, sat (alone) on a sportbike...
How can they be so selfish... wanting people being involved in their prostate care but don't taking care of others ?

Help!!

My bike is stranded on the hydro line near Cali Road.

My big Tundra won't get down there but I can get a trailer to the junction and maybe push it for 1/2 mile

Anybody have a small trailer I can borrow or any other ideas for me?? There's beer involved .

I have a 3 bike trailer you could use if you find nothing smaller. PM me if you need to. Do you need help to get it?

either would work really well, the smaller could be taken off Cali road a bit further with a small pickup or 4x4. it's pretty dry in there right off Cali road till the big water hole Pushing the bike back through it and then uphill will be tough.

I've never flooded a bike before so I'm not sure it'll start when I get the spark plug out and swap the clutch lever.

Help is mucho appreciated.

Here's a rundown of what happened:



Saturday I went out for a spin. Usual Cali Road but this time I thought I’d try the hydro line. Drowned the bike in that big water crossing and it wouldn’t start no matter what I did. Tried tipping it upside down but broke the clutch lever. No tools though so I had to leave it and start walking. 5 miles in full gear later a pickup came by and drove me to White Lake.



I had to leave the bike but I need a rescue mission. My truck won’t get down off Cali road and I can’t push it up there myself with the back and shoulders … that are really out already.



Any ideas appreciated!!!

You really need a quad or something similar to pull that out. There's no way my little VW Golf TDI with the malfunctioning turbo would pull a trailer down trails. I can help push but 5 miles would kill us both on a day like today.

Put it on the center stand (if you have one) put it in high gear 5-6. Keep trying to spin the back wheel forward then back it might take a while, but eventually it should allow the water to pass trough the rings and turn over. If and when it does start it'll probably "steam" for a while. Just let it get good and hot, and it will get rid of the moisture in the oil. It worked for me last year. Good luck.
