    That hooskyverna, good bikes when they dont have a million miles on em. Check out SWM, can probably get a brand new one of those for the same price!

    It don't snow down here in SoCal, so after smelly and our buddy jeff had to split from Taylor Park I had to go find some. Cinnamon Pass after the first real snow of the year.

    I like this bike, but it's $10K and not street legal. I don't see a need for this in the USA. Talk about a small niche.

    I have a bunch, but haven't got a lot online yet. We car-camped at Taylor Park, explored the surrounding area, and rode some nearby singletracks. The YZ250 turned out to be a hell of a rocky mountain goat, it really performed well there. I can't wait to get back and ride more of it. The singletreacks were very fun trails. If you only ride the 4x4 stuff, you are missing a major dimension of those mountains.

    the GPS heatmap is cool

    ... and the wide version shows what a small area we hung out in

    I'm thankful and happy to have been able to go there and ride twice now. Hope the tradition continues for many more. It really doesn't cost much, just some time :)
