    Look for spots where there is alot of dirt/sand next to the tracks.
    A piece of wood pushed into a switch point can be used as a ramp. (remove it after you are done) Pile of rocks also works.(remove them as well).
    If you need lift your bike over the rails lift by holding the wheel so the suspension does not work against you. Lifting the wheel while turning it by hand works really well.
    There were 2 of us so one person could control the bike while the other lifted a wheel.

    My evil twin presented me with a lengthy to-do list before it carries me to the RA rally (via the Smoky Mountains) in two weeks. To punish it, I will let it all go to the last minute.

    And installed a Denali power hub2 with the twisted throttle can-bus adapter

    Scrubbed in some rubber (Karoo 3) on the new 18" rear. With the bigger wheel and 45 tooth sprocket all the twitchiness with the throttle and steering has magically disappeared. Fucking brilliant. :clap

    Installed some BMW pannier racks. Good thing I am not paid to do so. :1drink

    EDIT: Today 5/18 I revived some used aluminum panniers from a 2009 GS to mount. They were not too bad with only a few scrapes here and there. They had a lot tree branch scratches and the like. I used 0000 steel wool and metal polish. Worked great and they look ready to go 5 more years.

    90 degrees and the proper amount of throttle works fine for getting the front wheel in, back wheel is another matter.
    Overall just getting the bike parallel and as close as possible to the rail then lifting the wheel onto the rail and rolling it forward into between the tracks is easy enough and is a failsafe method.

    Reaver, FredRydr and JRWooden get together for a swap meet sponsored by runnin4melife.

    Absent: runnin4melife

    Special thanks to the Ambassador of PA, FredRydr for his extensive knowledge of the local roads and his tolerance of foreigners.

    No animals were harmed tearing through the mountains except possibly a black snake that JRWooden denies the existence of.

    I can't help think that this is in the Gila NF, in NM..... Could be a stretch from Mogollon to Snow lake, or perhaps on the way up in the san mateo mountains, since you just spun The Monticello Box...... :D:D:freaky
