This was a great day for a ride, not too hot, not too long, just technical enough to keep it interesting, easy enough to haul ass.

There was even a snowball fight!
The snow was just right for making snowballs, Harry got macked right in the helmet.

I skipped lunch, but I did have a great vanilla shake.

Thanks for the great time Keith and Steve!

Am thinking I need to get acquainted with this area. Love all those pics. Those Kenda 270s are the bomb!

Each bike is setup nicely too. That Double H guy is an animal. He could of at least left his camp stuff at your trucks.

Dang, now you guys have found another place I have to go explore. Looks like a trials ride to me, not a DRZ400 with 25 lbs of extra stuff. Double H must carry that stuff to keep it interesting. Last time I rode with him he just flatted a rear tire to challenge himself.

We offered H2 the chance to put his Coyote Bag in the truck but he said he'd be OK. That thing didn't get in his way or slow him down fer sure.
Re: after? We started pretty early and he had to ride the thang home.
I put a voice mail on his phone as we were driving by his his exit listening to Thorogood in my air conditioned truck 'cause I'm "Bad To The Bone". He called me a few hours later when he got home saying he was "red as a tomato". Long haul up sun, so to speak.
Great day, great ride, great friends, no body got hurt. It doesn't get much better than that.
Gums let me ride his 300 for a few miles down the mountain. Lets just say it would take more than a couple of miles to get accustomed to no clutch and foot brake and clutch lever now operates a rear brake that actually stops the bike.

Now that'd be weird. I thought that foot brake thingy was for brake sliding. You actually got it to stop the bike? Those Rekluse people got some weird ideas. Brembo brakes prolly also help.

That hyde skid plate looks good. Bet it keeps that pipe all shiny for years!

Sounds like Double H is training for an enduro cross entry next year. Seems it would take some endurance to ride trail and then back home but that's what all the ADV riders do I guess.

Nice photos, I didn't stop for any. I am the guy that stopped to talk with you at the top. Sounds like you ran into a different group of horses on the way down?

Did one of you lose a plate? I found one today at the trail head. Someone must have put it there, as it wasn't there yesterday. Let me know, I have it in my possession.

Hi Roy,
Someone left a plate (beat up) on the rock at the trailhead. We're all good. It might have been from the local on the KDX that was leaving as we were getting started. Grey Mazda P/U with a sweet extremely quiet late model KDX. Figure he's got to be local as he was done by 9:15 or so.
Sorry we didn't do the proper intros, nice to meet and talk with you anyway. You'll have to show us around your neck of the woods sometime.
Yep, new group of horseys on the way down. We stopped and rode some logging roads and came back to the trail. I just knew were going to meet some coming up that they let me lead in my slow and deliberate pace. When I was rounding a switchback I heard a whistle, looked up a saw their guide rider stopped on the trail trying to get our attention. I pulled off the trail as soon as I was stopped and when I put my foot down it just happed to be in a ditch. You know what happened next. As I was trying to get out from under my bike the guide was asking if I was OK. I told him I was fine and do this all the time. He was cracking up, the next rider (some cutie) didn't look too hapy and her boyfriend was alll smiles. I actually do that enough that I wasn't even embarrased.

Holy Smokes!

If you hadn't told me where you were I would have bet you were on the GP boundary trail by Shark Rock! I kinda thought those Kendas acted a bit like a trails tire instead of a knobby in dry dusty stuff. They don't perform to badly actually!

None of that kinda riding for me this year, Great to see you guys out!

That H squared guy is one of my Heros!
