Not sure which is worse, climbing those long uphills or trying to go down without wiping out


Here is my track for comparison.

I would ride it again, but I would spend more time exploring the trails down there.
Like the one on the north side of the creek that goes West, I don't remember who rode down it, Bill, or MMoto and said it wasn't used.
As to climbing out the way we went in, if its dry I believe it would be the easier route, its steep but has less rocks and the path is used more.

Remember this image.

Those was all trails/roads/tracks the Rangers have documented at one time or another down there. A lot are lost to the wisps of time and floods etc.

Damn, that hurts just reading it. Get well soon Marty. Sounds like you will be good to go for fall riding though.

I think its actually a plane that was flying over the area as the sat image was taken, it shows a strange prism color shift.

Possibly consider looking at the Honda CRF230L for her. Seat height of 31.6", wet weight of 261 lbs (carried low, so feels lighter), disc brakes front/rear, it's a torque monster with smooth power, geared nicely for woods/roads as is, etc, etc. Wife loves her's. In fact, us experienced guys could have a ball exploring the mountains on one, as long as you don't try to go racin' on it. There are still new leftovers here n' there. They list for something like $5100+. We got the wife's new 2009 in April for $3442 out the door. Something to think about.

TC:

That trike is hidious. He's going to have a devil of a time selling that ugly thing.
