    That's a good story, have another one?
    No, they were wide open, no one was there at all. We had it all to ourselves. Oh wait a minute, we did see 3-4 others up there enjoying the Sunny Sequoias while it was easily in the mid 80's. :jkam

    As you can see in this pic Jungle took of me, I'm wearing my summer desert apparel. And it was so sunny that the sand glistened like snow in the winter...............

    Honestly, the riding was epic, the dirt was super sticky and adventure was to be had......Jimmy's bike is still enjoying it.

    On another note Lior will be fixing my husky....

    I'm gunna get my 650R back that fucker never let mee doon!!!!

    In spite of the bike taking a shit on me I had a great day riding

    Even if Rob was doing some of the driving... Two up is better for traction in snow....

    When the 500 Was running it was great.... Love the gearbox 13/50 perfect for second gear pretty much the whole time in the tight stuff could lug it great if you had to.. Monster power. Handles awesome turns much more precise than my husky....

    I would not get something else. I want my 500....

    Shit happens....

    Nothing to do with muscle.

    It's under a foot or more of snow............
    The muscle was riding the good shit. Anyone can rescue a bike when the weathers great and the snow is non existent.

    I am heading up Saturday morning. Meet Nate at his house. He said he would come along with his son..he's going to be up there working on the cabin. But if someone else wants to come well hey you would get lunch and some gas money for your trouble. But I don't think it's nothing Nate and I and his son can't handle(famous last words).....but hey it's a adventure.
