Winthrop/Conconully exploring ride report

A few adv riders and my self set off to the east side of the mountains for a couple days of exploring roads,spur roads, and trails. Here is a a few pics of what I taken. I wish I had taken more. How ever I know some who took a lot and he is even better with ride reports than I am. Stay tuned

Oh and one thing I forgot to mention speed limit on national forest roads are 35 mph max unless other wised posted I got off with a warning doing 52 in a 30 in the middle of BFE. And there was no sign to be seen until he pointed behind me said there it is. Funny thing is that's the only sign I saw and it was pointed in the opposite direction we were going.

The local FS cop let you go?! Wow you are lucky... he's not known for giving warnings.

I have a bunch of pics. Will sort through and post some tonight.

Fast riding and good times. 260+ miles on dirt, lots of dust, some snow, logs, and water. Good eatin' too.

ya mark i hear what you are talking about. however friday i went to SP and purchased a new pressure suit, knee/shin pads and gloves. i was not going to ride again until i purchased them... after seeing how a gravel road can turn a riding jersey into rags, i would just feel scared riding with out them now.

how is the hand?

Good on you. You'll be fix'd faster than my car. I won't see it again until after the 21rst. $8K damage. Still, way better than any trip to the emergency room. Hope to see you soon.
