    I think @Corradokid135 bike has a case of Covid-19, do your filters work for Covid-19?

    I'll try to see if KTM sells one of those orange power part N95 fuel filters. Hear they've been tough to come by lately though.....

    insert suicide ride? That’s a good ride to do while we wait for snow to melt in the higher ups.

    Thanks once again ADVers, youz allz contributed to another great extended weekend at Barlow! New roads were found, new trails were conquered, new plastic was broken, and lots and lots of good food and drink were consumed.
    Hmmm. Suicide Ride....

    I think another Gifford camp-out should make it's way onto the calendar. When will the snow be gone from elevations like Hamilton Buttes? I'm in Central Oregon -- at Cline currently, which staging area is back open, but it's already extremely dusty -- and the summer heat is moving in.

    So......as of now if someone wanted to ride the Barlow end to end it requires illegally crossing the closed bridge or fording the stream next to it- both options come with a risk of answering questions from Johnny law. BUT- this little gem is buried in the pucker brush not far from the closed bridge. The end opposite where the pic was taken is ride to by hopping a few (a lot) of downed trees off the Barlow. The other side is ridden to through an overgrown but rideable old road. The bridge is unrideable but the stream isn’t that big. I took this pic a few years ago when I had no incentive to cross. Stay tuned. There’ll be a bit of an adventure ride coming soon.:evil A3EDB80C-48D4-4476-97CF-F9C6E7C88452.png

    IN!

    That wasted bridge crossing still looks easier than the White River Crossing at Keeps Mill!

    save yourself some $ and cut someone’s brake likes. Anything’s possible when it’s your only option.
