And as a concerned trail advocate, I've spent hours trying to help educate other users on proper trail etiquette in places like West Mag. Thankfully the USFS, as the steward entrusted with this land, is here to back us up in these conservation efforts:



Glad we've been keepin' that singletrack single.

So I did some searching here and around the net but I need your opinion(s). I am looking at having the seat redone on my Wee. I have narrowed it to two people/companies, Tumbleweed(El Kabong) or Go West Seats. I have read many good things about both. My question is: which one will give the best results for the money for my 50/50 Wee? I am getting ready to do a several month long moto tour of the US and the seat I have now is a no go. Talk about monkey-butt! A bare-red-assed baboon has nothing on my after a few hundred miles!

Also, I like the looks of the Renazco seats and I'd like to have that nice suede-type top in dark silver/grey and black vinyl sides. You the look!

Thanks guys

Craig is moving up!

We have always been limited over here in Craig in some of the finer micro brews found in the state. Trinity Brewing in the Springs is owned by an ex student of mine, he put that micro-biology degree to work. He got one of our local establishments to carry some of his beer. I must say, I really like this, and the size is JUST right. Two of these and it will be bed time!

Norm, I'm thinking this is a story that's worth hearing.

Come on, spill the beans.

It's their idea of a good time.


Funny, every ride I have shown up on....most of the group brings knobbies. (Evil). Spins their tires (double evil) and often...some even have a loud pipe (triple uber evil).

Sure as can be, someone will jump in with "my group never blah, blah, blah". Yep, you would be the minority. Most folks just ride. It weren't for the interwebs and digital cameras, the city dwellers wouldn't be aware of the unwashed masses stinking of "their" forest.

Osmand, it's not personal man. Just saying that there are all kinds in the this world.

But how would a landowner get insurance so he wouldn't get sued? Alcohol, high hp and risk equals danger.

The only way down here that is possible is private land and loads of insurance - def ZERO drinking.

Not everyone is happy to sue.

OK, so I am changing a tire in the family room, the shop was to cold, I was out of coal(I have 4 tons now)! I have the tire on the plastic on the carpet, cannot make a mess you know. Trying to get the last bit popped on, when she comes around the corner and scares the shit out of me, I thought she was upstairs! My hand comes off the tire iron and it slaps my left thumb! She laughs her ass off and says it serves me right, and I better go get some coal for the shop!

This is why I bring some suds to the outer places! The scars tell of wounds healed, the bruises tell stories still fresh in the mind, and the comaraderie of the adventures taken, planned. A cold one after a good ride shared can bring about a friendship that's to be remembered-especially when there is a commonality.

I'm thinking about TNC as I type this and the stories we told of the mighty husky automatics in the day on a ride in the same area...

Local AM radio announced good news for NM motorcyclists that like to ride in the forest. The FS will release the new OHV trail map on Monday and it's free! The fact is, on Monday the death sentence is official for New Mexico.
