    Stony Fork is a good idea if your camping, we ran an event out of there a few years ago, try to stay in the back, away from the "residents".
    Theres a good stream crossing close by.

    Scott, Shaggy, And me will hit every mile....JD is getting closer to booking. I can’t speak for how long the other Irish boys will last.

    If they all make it, it’s the full team mystery machine...less Mackey.

    They are open year round, with the exception of some game land and state forest roads that are only open during big game season

    Would this be better ridden on a GS or 350EXC? (I posted on the other thread too)
    I'm leaning towards the GS
