    I'm booked 4/6, but available the following weekend (4/13). The hot springs & that trail look COOL!

    Mmmm ... cool creek crossings! :clap There should be more creek-crossing photos out there. I've never seen so many cameras pointed at me, waiting for that kodak-carnage moment. Sorry to disappoint! :evil

    Catfish ...

    Guess he needs to try Rincon :evil My bike took a beating; ripped seat, banged pipe, squashed throttle tube and scratched plastic. I only went off the trail once.....

    4/6 it is Happy! I heard the hotsprings are for meth heads and nudists :eek1
    Might be more drownings this year? :deal

    That shit happens when U ride the good stuff...
    Lots of new scars on my bike too.
    I liked the trials tire after getting used to it, have to go easy on the gas, those things are sticky. At the BR creek crossing the bike launched into the air and did a 180 backflip, too bad no one got a picture of that.

    You boys have fun at the hot springs with the meth heads.
