DAY ONE As usual the good luck fellows from Washington had epic conditions for their annual SkiMoto trip to Central Oregon. Heavy rain on wednesday night pre-soaked the trails and saturated the few 2 track roads we intended to roost on thursday. Ken toasts the good fortune with Patron that Jim brought for the occasion - 5 bikes ready to roll up into the forest - Ken, Jim, Brad, Dustin and myself. Chocolate love trail. The sun popped out but still no dust and the morning is awesome - Jim giving that throttle a workout. Up in elevation looking for more dust free action - and finding it! Brad on his nice 200. Jim Dustin on a well-earned day off in the forest. We ran into a couple other buddies who joined us for the roosting festival. Ken has a TIMBER SLED for his 530 and just returned it to dirt bike mode. His rear brake quit (and hes still fast) Heres John - And Todd - Myself dropping into the dry canyon section which is perfect this morning! Hey Ken - I think thats ICE not snow - Excellent conditions to the top of a local butte for a break - but it looks like a little spring snow squall is coming our way - Yup its snowing. We enthusiastically roast a bunch of single track and 2 track back down into some warmer weather and Dustin picked up a nasty snake bite on his 19 KX250 rear. Not a problem, he spoons in a 21 front and were back in action. Back in the goods now, we choose Stans sandy ditch trail as it is untracked and still moist. Brad dropping into one of the more fun sections. Took the Tree farm route back up towards more moist dirt as it is starting to dry out down low - Dustin - Jim - Crappy photo but Ken was hauling ass through here and hit a rock which was tossed out of the frame. John took off for home and we rode this awesome ditch back down towards the barn (and beer cooler!) Dustin romping through, just before he pin-balled of a stone and destroyed his chain guide! Closer look - Kenny chargin Brad and Todd in 3rd gear. Once you get to know this trail its really fun - tight in places but fun! The end of day one - tomorrow we SKI!
