    Great stuff. Nice images. Good bit of dirt miles for a day. :clap Glad the Tiger is showing you some fun.

    The creek route isn't too bad, especially since I cleared the brush a few months ago: http://trailimage.com/thorn-creek-to-its-butte :D It was never worse than the few pictures I have there.

    Great pictures as usual. I will have to go back and try the creek route when I've got someone else with me to help me pick that bike up.

    I remember driving that road back in the 80s no problem. There was a flood or something in the 90s which washed it out and the USFS decided to not fix it. I tried getting my loaded BMW down there two years ago. Unloaded I might have tried it. Wouldn't hesitate to take my DRZ down there though.

    Our little Brenna being sick has changed some plans so I think I'll continue some ridge exploration I started yesterday with an afternoon ride down Daggett (see Heath's write-up for more info). I went up Trail 4 yesterday so today I'll probably just expedite and ride 8th Street all the way up. Takers?

    You can text me at 550-eighty-fifty or I'll watch for messages here.

    Maybe an evening ride? I think I'm free Tuesday and Wednesday later afternoon. As it happened yesterday, I says to wife, "hey, I think I might ride again this afternoon," to which she responded with a kind of cold silence. Recognizing this was a test :lol3 I decided I'd do chores for the rest of the day rather than get overdrawn on good graces. I kept an eye on my phone for replies but nobody saved me.

    Funny, I had just finished watching your stuff after Google led me to your Youtube channel. Good times! Your buddy going off Trail 4 was an exciting bit (different vid from the one here, I think).

    Something soon, then. I want to see that XT (presumably). I probably need the time this week to prep for an overnight ride with my brothers up north anyway, so just as well.

    The Daggett ride was last fall... the trail 4 adventure was early this month. He's lucky that he bailed and didn't get pummeled by 350 pounds of tumbling bike. Twisted his frame up pretty good.:cry

    I know the Ape is way too much of a pig to take on anything more excessive than a fire road, so I'm converting my little wr250x into a dual sport, and hopefully will be able to tag along on some of your guys awesome rides! Got my skid plate installed, now just waiting to get a 4.5 gal ims tank and some dirt hoops!

    Got out for a bit this weekend. Went into the Owyhees.

    I was disappointed to see they'd closed-off the route to Hemmingway Butte ~ where did that happen?! Stupid BLM....

    I ended up finding some great single track that made up for it though. :evil

    I was out by Succor Creek Saturday. Great day for riding and the hills are all green and covered with wildflowers. Too bad we did not cross paths. I didn't see any other bikes out there.

    Lots of gates on this ride.

    Anyone want to go out Monday? I want to get to Leslie Gulch and Jordan Craters and??? before it gets too hot and the hills turn brown. Shoot me a PM or call 995/8305 Mike.
