    Hey guys,
    I'm heading south and west of town to the "informal" motocross park to see if I get get the GS airborne. Not 10' like the kids....maybe a foot...want to play around with suspension settings. Lots of little hills, sand, mud, gravel, grass. I'll be at McLeod Trail and Dunbow Road at 6:00 Wed. ps Lots of room for the air ambulance to land.

    Do you have coordinates for this "informal" track? I assume you are not taking the GS to Wildrose at Blackfoot.

    Brian,

    Sorry can't make it this night. Looking forward to explore more unknown gravel roads in AB.
    Have fun.

    Wayne showed up with his African Twin, we did one lap, decided to do the backroads tour to Turner Valley. Coming home at dusk, I looked to my left, there were 6 white tail deer running along beside me 5 feet away, the race was on, luckily I was winning, it was strange hitting the gas when that close to wildlife. Saw 3 other deer later .... and here I thought it was the perfect road.
    I'm thinking about heading back there this Wed at 6:00..... it was kinda busy that night, no organization, 8 year old kids riding around, lots of hills and trees, not the safest place to go fast, but still a great place to practice off-roading. Location - 230 Ave and 16 St.

    I went over to the "track" today. New signs are up - trespassers will be prosecuted. A few kids were still riding in there, but I skipped it.
