    Hey, I know those pussies riding that easy 2 track. :evil

    It sure is weird to see Shrubitup riding an expensive European bike. His tastes have sure evolved! :lol3

    Some of the trails are a bit overgrown...

    There is this, too, if you want to live on the edge.

    This place is pretty cool too!

    There are a few switchbacks but they always hang out with the cool trails. :evil

    There are still lots of trails around here that I have not tried. I am no expert but I do enjoy pushing my limits. I also tend to crash while pushing those limits as my fellow riders can testify. You might have to help me pick up my bike!

    Drop me a line if you want to go for a ride. :lol3

    I didn't realize those orange bikes could go upsidedown. My plan to just pay cash for skill is torpedoed. :cry

    Rob,
    Langille Ridge and the Rough Trail are definitely :lift :ricky
    Looks like Riceless and his posse are pretty bad-ass! But like my friend Todd says... "The real heroes know who they are." :bow

    Those pictures make my kinda sad. Looks like a blast but I had a previous commitment. It was fun too, just not moto fun.

    Was guns_equals_freedom on this ride? He invited me go out to Walker. Is this Walker? .... Yes I really am this ignorant. :shog

    Walker is near Mt Vernon. Devil's Backbone is west and above Chelan. If someones footpegs are digging in the both side of the trail in any pic it's probably Walker.
    Stick around till next summer and us old guys will get you your fill of single track and yes, you're buying on the way home.

    Thanks for the info brother. Looking forward to riding with you.


    Yeah! The video looked way fun but I work on weekdays and I didn't say I'd be there. I liked your switchback technique. Even more, I like your 5MOH footage. Now that's a trail ride. :clap

    I do have every other Monday off :D Let's Ride.

    I did buy a ktm. The WR300 will be up for sale this week. I just put a brand new piston, cylinder, and reeds in it. It will be an awesome bike for the next owner. I heard you bought a WR125? That would be a fun bike!
