Actually Saturdays ride ...

After resigning to the fact riding was done for the year , the weather lightened up & we got one more ride in . Never mind it was a 3 hour drive east ,
it was one more chance to ride ! Loaded up Saturday AM in just lovely +10 degree temps ...


Hit the road to Big Timber Montana to Dan Larsons place . He's our Montana trials & Beta dealer & he's transformed a pretty non-trials piece of property
into one incrediable practice area . Tho it was just a tab bit windy .. it was DRY & sunny ..... Jeff from Bozeman also made the drive
but the others ... they just flat missed out

Jeff

Steve

Not only was the riding great , Dan's wife cooked us chili & corn bread so after getting sufficiently cold we got to pig out .... then ride some more !

Dan




So I now don't feel quite so jealous of you NM guys ... just can't think about just how far away Spring is .
Will just have to see about another trip down to SY next year ...

Gordy, You guys had an epic ride today at San Yisdro. Wished I was there. We rode the pallets
and had lamb/chicken and Susan's normal throwdown. Awesome late
November weather in New Mexico.

How so? A flat field is easily "spiced up" with various obstacles. Anything not flat is already good.

I try to stick to things that are easy to get rid of when selecting obstacles. I have a source for those huge tires, but I don't want to have to dispose of them if I decide to move. I stick to plain unpainted pallets so that I can burn them when they start to fall apart. It really doesn't take much to provide an entertaining challenge.

I can appreciate that. I very much prefer to ride natural terrain. That said, I also very much enjoy riding the obstacles I've collected in the yard. It allows me to get much more riding in since I don't have to load up and travel to ride.

What did I do? Buy it!

Left home before 6 A.M. Picked up a friend and drove a very long ways, then drove back . Home again (finally) at 6 P.M. With a 2004 Beta 270 in the back of my truck! Pretty big leap of faith for a guy in East Puckerbrush Maine who has only witnessed 3 trials-type events and never ridden a trials bike!
(Actually not that big. Researched the hell out of this beforehand, it seems a good way to amuse myself while taming my spreading waistline.)
No good picks yet, no daylight during non-work hours. This weekend for sure!

(Now where is that little guy with the light saber?)

It is dumping a wet/slushy snow at my place right now. The roads will be a skating rink (at best) in the morning.
.....and, the radar is showing the heart of this thing just crossing the AZ border heading out way. Not looking good for tonight.
Unless there is a miracle, I'm not driving in it.

You guys that can make it, have fun!!

When I left SanYo at 3:00pm, the snow was all but gone, the road and the trails were tacky, and the skies were mixed. Looked good then.

'Course it's snowing like mad here now.


Dealer's choice. Up to you.

Did I mention that Bailey Tucker came down to ride with us this weekend?

Brewtus said the conditions at SY as of 3:00 pm today were good. Rocks were clear of snow, road and trails were tacky but not muddy. Sections all reset and ready. All depends on what happens tonight now.


Clear at my place on the west side right now. Fingers crossed...


Edit: 205'd!
