    I must have been somewhere near by a couple months ago. Did not know these were called "The Needles" but I thought they were noteworthy! Very cool!

    Had a great time with Scott John and Razor! You guys rock :freaky

    Too bad I got left there by a so called friend :huh

    But thanks for stepping up John and driving me to Victorville. Riding my bike home was a good time. Ended up taking the back side of Cajon Pass to Cleghorn. Damn that trail was whooped out.

    Cant wait to ride with these guys again :clap

    Great pics and even better stories from the SNF. Those tracks look amazing. We had a big bike crew up there at the same time based at Camp Nelson. Although our tracks were much tamer and wider than what you guys were doing, much, much wider. Like at least 3 bike wide.

    Will be spending more time in SNF for sure. Just not anywhere near those dear tracks you guys are riding.
