    Just a reminder. The A loops have some seriously difficult single track. If you don't ride single track every weekend, you'll be much happier if you stick to the B loops.

    This trail will show you what your make of for sure.. I'm made of "C" stuff ..:lol3 .

    Note too that all the Saturday loops end up in CrownKing for lunch, So you could run a A loop in the morning and B loop int the afternoon.

    it's just kinda tough to stuff a chain saw into a camelback.

    I've seen specially designed tail racks that are made to carry chain saws on the back of dirt bikes. They look really cool.:thumb

    Or a Pocket Chainsaw ?

    Looks like Prescott & the Bradshaws got a sprinkle today. More in the forecast for mid week.

    Less dust & Tacky trail's perhaps...

    Remember that Prescott ride you did with us... Imagine carrying a chainsaw with you on that, then make the trail 3x harder. Each time I've ridden that section of the A loop has been a struggle to get all the riders down to the bottom.

    I have confirmed from a good Source ( RattleCan) that Prescott got a good rain all day yesterday, and expecting more today and through midweek.

    I think Don Hood must have connections up above to always have Perfect conditions for his Rides !! Good Job Don !!

    There may even be a chance for an occasional "Mud " shower along the route.:evil Don't slow down going into the mud if Uncle MilT is behind you, If you do, you'll know why.:D

    See everyone Friday !

    Funny you should mention that. I got a call just this morning from Helli Kornton who rode his 1200 GS on last years A loop......and he's planning on doing it again this year. I gave him the link to Madman's pics so he had time think about what he is getting himself into. The guys an animal on those 1200's though so I don't he is going to change his mind. Heck, its not like has to pay for the bikes.... :lol3
