Yes!,,for sticky red clay I highly recommend a potter's wheel, and a kiln!

make some nice bowls, maybe a coffee cup or an ashtray!,,oh,, but ashtrays are SO "Old and in the way".
clay for motosickles?,,an earthen damn around some leaky engine part?

nope,,no good for that either!
At least when you fall in the red clay stuff, the whole side of your bike and body look like you really crashed!,, sad part is,, it never really washes away,,bike or clothing,,always that little taint of red clay. play with them words ya perverts!

The term tampon comes from the greek tampos, which is described by the activity of hibernating bears seen to be packing moist soils and clay into anal and vaginal cavities in order to thwart intrusions by ants during hibernation.
Tamp it up yer,,,,,

Nice job on the video -- the video does seem nice and smooth, just like that soundtrack… [porn-stache icon needed here] oh yeah!

Seriously, it looks good and I appreciate it. I missed a nice ride.
I've been tempted to get a helmet cam, but then I think about how it can take me a couple hours just to edit some scenery shots down to a 5 minute video where I'm usually not that happy with the results, and I convince myself I just don't have enough time for more editing.

Anyone up for a TSF trail ride tomorrow?


I was thinking of staging at the Jordan Creek road / Archer's road intersection at 10, direction and type of trails would depend on who shows up.

Maybe an 8:30 breakfast at Coleman's if there is interest.

Side topic....Been searching for a while with little great luck.

I am bringing up my plated CRF450 this spring (lives in LA for the winter desert riding) and want to get some GP single track suggestions/tracks. I spend a bunch of time in the GP on my KLR and 990 but have never had my 450 up there.

Anyone?

Thanks!
mike

The FS web page used to have a nice trail map with descriptions, but they took it down. PM me your email address and I'll send it to you.

That's too bad. I need to give a little more notice it seems. :grin


So it started like this:



And turned into this:




With only a little of this:



Which turned into this:


Not only do I have no idea where the trail is in that picture, I don't know where my bike is. The trail was so overgrowm I had to park it and spent a couple of hours clearing out the trail. i hiked up a few hundred yards without clearing anything to make sure it was going the right way and took a wrong turn on my way back. Shouldn't have left the GPS on the bike :)
I found the bike by finding the trail again and hiking back up it to the bike.

Here's the trail where I found it:


That's a picture of a switch back that comes up from the right and leaves to the left.


The sun is getting low, tiime to head back to the truck:


One last trail:


good thing I made a narrower pipe:

Yup. A little Corona, works great on small stuff. A Stihl would've been nice last week near Browns camp.



I was mostly using it as a machete, there was surprisingly little deadfall across the trail. I'll bring pruners and a real machete next time. And real gloves. Most of the bushes were some nasty thorned thing.



One of the nice things about riding alone is I never have to listen to "dammit luke that isn't a trail" and now I found a nice re-newed one.

Yeah, it was even funny at the time. 'Ok, the road's up there, the stream's over there,the cliff's over there, it's gotta be in between them somewhere. It's going to be really hard to find if it fell over.'
