    Might want to try some of the lower 4wd routes first, if you all havent already like coyote lakes and brewer lakes before taking the big bite of the ershim. They will all be easy compared to the ershim. Remember 2-3 DAYS in a jeep, and they arent exagerating about the 3 hr to go 4 miles.

    If anyone has the cajones to take a GS up, I'll match that challenge by riding my 2006 Yamaha FZ1:eek1 . Yes, that's right, let the carnage begin.

    Well I am gonna try again to meet with you guys on the 14th! I think this weekend i will go up behind pine flat and up past balch camp to 11s07 then up past black rock on up to Courtright and maybe behind to slick rock? Not quite Dusy though. I went thru dusy ershim 20 years ago in a toyota, it was rougher that Loon lake and the Rubicon.

    What a disasterously horrible picture. I checked out the link http://dsrider1.googlepages.com/ and the cherry blossoms did their trick and helped ease the pain. Finally something to stop the slow bleeding. Thanks to whoever was responsible for posting; some really good pics. Looking forward to the next ride.

    I'm pretty much sure I'm going, going to put on the 15/45 or maybe 46 back on for the crawlin in the rocks. Pack spare tubes and spare levers wouldnt be a bad idea either.

    Powerman will run circles around us on the 525, but can he get it there, well if he trailered it to the start he could probably get to courtright and back before we could finish.:evil Or will he have the the boys strapped on and bring the little 950.

    How about our long lost friend, whats his name again, Indianapolis driver....no, brickyard drifter....no, arlington assasin....no, miami vice....no, can somebody help me please. Laguna lapper?

    Any word from Coga, where has Coga been....................... (Coga where are you?)
