    Rode 007 today. It was great.

    My friend said this creek crossing is super slippery and that a guy he was with had his bike go over the edge down the waterfall and had to fish it out.

    I thought that place looked familiar.

    Hey Shawn, I was out of town this year so I didn't ride. I know some guys were talking about riding.

    Definitely missed our Black Friday ride! I ended up riding the weekend before. Very similar ride to what we did last year. Amazing conditions!

    Oh and Monti already got ride of the Aprilia. The gearing and powerband didn't agree with him. He's now got a Husky TE610.

    Not at all. I haven't been for a week and a half, but my buddy is up there every weekend. I think the gates are still open.

    Gates are all open and dirt is still wet with really good traction. Had a good time today!

    Awesome! My buddy said it rained again this morning. Perfect dirt. Wish I could have gone, but I broke my brake pedal on 007. Gr.

    Went riding around Whiskey Ridge again today. Conditions up there were absolutely perfect. We saw some fresh dirt bike tracks on a few trailheads but didn’t run into any other riders.
