2011 Sheet Iron

Just got through with this epic event through Mendocino Forest to the coast and back over two days. Huge variety of trails from gnarly single track to endless gravel forest road. This track includes most, but not all the hard splits. A very fun event and some very cool trails.

Most years it is all open which is why it is bad form to post tracks of comercial rides on the Internet. If people started doing this for my rides, I would quit giving out GPS tracks and go to Roll Chart only or get each rtider to sign a non-disclosure contract like most companies do when they show you their stuff.

Jerry,

I would never post tracks for a commercial ride, where the organizer invested in the route as service to his customers, or otherwise indicated that the route should not be shared openly. In this case, it was an open invitation, club ride on public roads and documented OHV routes only, with full support from the Forest Service.

It can be ridden at any time of year, and no one from the club has ever said that they care about protecting the route from being shared with others. Furthermore, the roll charts were not actually followed. This is only the route that I rode while attending the event along with 600 other riders. My sense is that I'm just sharing the love, not stepping on feet.

cheers

I heard there were both easy and hard routes for this ride. Do you think either/both are do-able on a KTM 990 Adventure by a rider with good (not expert) skills?

Thx

There were approx 10 ktm 990's on the ride that I saw

1 rider did all the hard ways (expert rider)
The other 9 took the easy way

The easy way is perfect for the ktm 990

Look into the la-b-v ride
It's palmdale to Barstow to Vegas
There will be an adventure route
Duelsport route
And hard route
I did the duelsport route on my 990 the year before last and it's fun and challenging

Four sidehacks did the easy route one year. There's a thread in the hacks forum somewhere...
