    AtomicXRer, still have all the bikes. You need to come down this weekend and ride, the sand is awesome right now. We stayed away from the whoops areas.

    Ridefreak, I sent Dion a message that we were going to ride Rainbow instead, maybe too late. Sorry if you were waiting for us. Looks like you had a pretty good ride and as all ways another great video. I'm not sure where "Gordys hill" is.

    I have the track if you want it. Some new to me trail anyway.

    Nice Wendell. I always like hitting the single track out at Rainbow. Alot of that looks very familiar. :D

    Soo what is this I hear about fences up at Rainbow?

    Hi Wendell. I'll ride slowly with you. I'm backed up for a couple of weeks, but hopefully soon.

    Great vids. That guys in front has such fine form!

    Man that was some of the best conditions we've has out there. I Even got a little ride on the blue bike, really fine iron, might have buy that from Ditch when he's tired of it.

    I think Ditch was just stalking me waiting for the crash. He is more patient than some other GoPro guys I've ridden with (RF).

    Now i have to go check out what you other guys did.

    Hope there is some more moisture for next weekend.

    I rode out the north end of Rainbow the weekend before last, and ran into new fenceline after the whoops, just before the downhill that kicks you out north towards the Badlands.......

    someone told me you can skirt around just past the gun range, I don't like riding too close to that area----we headed south to the whoops at the end of Southern instead. :ricky

    Hmmm, sounds like the same fence I ran into a couple of months ago. It has been that long since I have been out there. There are couple areas you can go to avoid the fence line near the shooting range. Need to ride out there to
    have a look see. :D

    Nice bike Wendel, It's great to see some deep blue on the trails. Blue is such a comforting color. I was thinking of heading over to Texas and picking up a 390 myself, when my old 625 came back on the market. I guess now that I will be DSing for a few years. Which is ok by me. :D

    I saw a new to me gate with nice new signs "Alamo Ranch, JL King prop., no trespassing, etc." at the northeast corner of the gun range on the road to the badlands area. We found a go around (more sweet singletrack), but it does cross a fence so probably not a good area to be caught in.

    Not Retroones bike, he sold his before I bought this one from Arizona.

    Come on down Tim. I've ridden nearly all this with my Husky so the 625 should do just fine.

    Jake, you need a dirt vacation. Try to make it up here sometime before it dries out.

    I need to come down and ride with you. But but it's going to be a little while. I need to get the suspension sorted first. And while I am at it I plan on giving that old bike a good once over.

    We rode Rainbow Monday. I think I saw a new fence, but it did not impact any of the trails we normally ride.

    Another guy reported that there is a new fence that cuts off "everything north and west of the shooting range". We are planning to go check it out sometime, maybe on DS bikes.

    I think the biggest impact is that it would probably eliminate the bypass around the gates on the pipeline road going towards to Cabezon.

    Anyway trail conditions were fantastic after the rain. Unfortunately we had to ride in the rain some.

    Monday I had to go back out and backtrack due to losing my tool kit from the rear fender, didn't notice it missing until I got home. Didn't have to go back too far before finding it. I was there pretty early and missed you wbbnm. Had to work that night so didn't spend any extra time out.
