    no linky but here are the locations:

    6/15 & 6/16: New York: Dave Reed's place near Cayuta NY
    6/22 & 6/23: Vermont: Carmen Brook farm and dairy near Highgate VT
    7/27 & 7/28: Arizona: Kingman AZ at a state park or BLM or some gov't type land
    8/3 & 8/4: New Mexico: Sipapu Ski Resort (some lodging there) near Taos NM
    8/24 & 8/25: Minnesota: Spirit Mtn in Duluth MN (trial is same weekend as Aerostich's 30th anniversary rally)

    of course, these are trial sites so "near" a town is sometimes a relative term :D

    cheers

    The Arizona round is at Hualapai Peak County Park, twenty miles or so southeast of and about a mile higher than Kingman. Paved access off
    I-40; camping, cabins, some facilities.

    Very cool place, rugged steep mountains. Camped there one night, got woke up by a herd of raccoon-sized critters scuffling around.

    That looks like Mike Mclanahan`s back yard when he lived in Los Alamos. Sorry you guys missed out!! Famous rocks like El Grande or one some will remember `bannana peel`behind the cemetary. Way too smooth of rock for BT.

    X-post.

    This is more dual sport than trials but we *are* asking for trials areas! And I know lots of NMTA folks also ride dual sport too so please help!

    The Carson National Forest, Camino Real Ranger District (south and east-ish of Taos NM neighborhood) has released (very quietly during the holidays) a “Preliminary Environmental Assessment…” that essentially closes all trails and roads in the entire district unless they already have a Forest Service designated number. This means closure of hundreds of miles of undocumented trails to motorized use.

    Here's a map of the Camino Real district.
    [​IMG]

    As I'm sure we all know, trails aren't documented because the area used to be "open unless marked closed" so nobody worried about marking a route as a trail but now FS is going "closed unless marked open".

    If you have or know anyone who has GPS trail files for ANY trails within this area that you or they don’t want closed, can you please either post in my thread over on the "GPS Tracks Rockies" subforum (linky here) or email directly to Mark Werkmeister for NMOHVA mark.r.werkmeister@intel.com.

    Or if you have an ancient 1986 FS map with the cover like this below, can you possibly scan it? Or let me know that you have it and I'll see what else might work.

    NMOHVA is thankfully stepping in with their experience on these matters and I'll be forwarding the track files and map (if available) to them.

    Comments to the FS are due January 12th so PLEASE post your tracks right away.

    Thank you so much for your help!

    while everyone was off having lunch I decided to go try this rock, I got up it a few times and came off of it backwards once. About than Lineaway came over and told me where everyone was headed
    [​IMG]
    so I started to follow him a few hundred yards after we left that rock I was shifting from second to third and it didn’t want to go into third so I was screwing with the shifter with my foot and the bike started making “metal slapping niose” so I shut the bike off and put it into neutral but the shifter didn’t have that spring feel that holds it in the center position so I cranked the bike with the kick starter it didn’t feel bad so I started it and it had that same Bad noise so I shut it off and pushed it back to camp.
    One I got home I pulled the side cover on the clutch side and found this spring part in the oil.

    The oil did have a good amount of fine metal flakes in it

    Gallup's event is being moved from March to April. That means that SY will be moved from April to March.
    This is due to concerns about the weather being too sketchy in Gallup in the first of March and having to set the event up in February. :vardy

    I have removed the flyer from post one for now so that we don't get anyone confused.

    Well awrighty then. CAT will have a trials at Valentine (on Rt 66 east of Kingman) on March 10, with the viking and me setting. Back to back travel weekends are hard to pull off, so good onyer for moving Gallup back a month.
