    Did you go? I just got back in town. Looking to do a local ride today on the 250. Maybe in Madison. See how my new front tire feels. I ditched the K270 in front.

    Edit: Was exhausted today from my trip so I didn't ride but if anyone wants to join mid-day tomorrow (Monday) for a ride out Madison way I'd say around noon I'm going to try to make up for today. I know there are some weekday warriors out there.

    Stumptown was bone dry and they have gravel and sand in there now! And one of the FR in dragonville SF has a gate now with a hunt club sign on it??? The SF map shows it as an open road! But did find another fun road down that way...

    Sounds like we're still losing forest roads to closure. :(

    Is that the end of CCC on The Trail, Rt 14 just North of Truhart? That end has a nice hill. I saw some posted last spring and wondered. Iris up by the dump was paves last year. Guess I should just get a Harley.

    Yea CCC IS CLOSED MIDWAY coming from the SF side (Liberty), they gated right at the SF line. I didn’t try going in from the Rt14 side, were the hill and wash outs are.

    Iris is stone. There’s a little nice fr next to the dump off of iris (john hancock). Tastine is out due to bridge, and I did ride down to see if we could cross.

    The FS map does not show it going all the way through. Bet it is gated at Rt 14 too.

    John Hancock was a challenge a few years ago but got scraped.

    I took the LRP out for a nice wYndy dual sport on Monday afternoon up the mountain roads in western Greene county. The Goldentyre Fatty is a revelation. I am going to have some time during the weekdays here and there but b/w Monday's ride and this Friday going down to New River area I'm at my quota. Gotta work some. As for KLR phase 3 clean up I strapped a cloth to a toothbrush and wiped the wet and muddy-ness out of my headlight assembly this afternoon. She still wants to backfire-pop when I start her up but runs good. (SRG):thumb

    Can't do everything, that's for sure.
    Missing out on some fine riding days over this way though.
