    Hey was looking at an AirB&B - South of downtown - in Grant Park

    ?

    Not to offend anyone but I've been told south of the city is a bit rough.

    Any info?

    I don't live in that part of town but I'm not concerned about going out to dinner there. Like any large urban area, take normal precautions and pay attention to your surroundings. It definitely isn't Mayberry but i think it's a cool part of the city.

    Good meeting and riding with you today Lee. After y’all headed out and everyone else started loading up, I did the 6d again.


    Loved the new Super Diamond trail.

    Great day!

    Great meeting you too, HiPower90.
    If i had half the energy and stamina you have I'd be impressed with myself. SMH that you braved the heat and went back for more of the new trail, you are hardcore, Sir! It got hot in a hurry out there and that new trail sure was sketchy. It will get better grooved over time.

    We will have to this again with Buildzall, Rob and some others. Sid's Death Valley trail would make some good vids :photog

    Lol Death Valley is a great name!

    Ha I won’t fall for you not being strong and fit. You rode Super Diamond twice! And Sids trail? That’s amazing.

    The creek part of his loop.

    i showed Sid that area last year and i have hardly ventured over there since (I'm not much on the hard enduro scene). Apparently he has made all kinds of stuff over there. A few weeks back i did ride up this rocky wash you show with Chad. I thot that was all Sid had made. WRONG! Somehow Luke and I got onto some trail and came down this wash you show but found a ginormous hill climb excursion that Sid had made. IMO, it may be the longest hill at MM but I'll have to verify on the topo maps. Regardless, it is a beast of a hill and I saw lots of other trails out there. That whole area is near vertical hills and gullies and has become Sid's laboratory of hard enduro stuff :clap

    The garage never looked better now that its packed with a 300, 350 and 1150Gs. Too bad one has to go.

    Who wants a single track weapon (350)? Need to make room for a trials bike in the next year.

    Anyone at MM this Sat? I finally have a chance to sneak away for the day. I’ve only been there once and could use a tour guide.
