    Cannel is the "easiest trail out there"? Really Kap? Guess I've never been to the easy part, just the Plunge. Maybe I have to make do with JO on Greenhorn.

    That's a good story, have another one?
    I agree with Kap. Cannell is easy peasy without a doubt no pucker factor. Just a bunch of nuisance switchbacks. I guess if you're afraid of heights it might be bit intimidating, but absolutely not hard.

    Adam and I rode all the good stuff on the westside today, no cattle, no other motos all day. We went up the creek of deer, across the meadow of puppys, down the lions back, across T creek, and were starving at the end. Next time we will bring a bigger saw to clear some logs in a few spots. There's one nasty bypass that NEEDS to be cleared.

    ADV riders all bailed and were replace by 3 good riders from KTMTalk. Temps in Kernville sky rocketed to 105F Sat. Too much for my virgin Rincon ride so I stayed up top while Ben led the 6 brave souls on at Cedar Cyn Tr.

    Great weekend all a round.

    Yeah, that's what I thought, Rearsteer and Excndez are both "good" ADV riders, get your story straight Jeff. It was you that bailed at the best part of the ride, you missed the all good stuff on Cedar and Rincon.:eek1:rofl
