So says the voice of experience?
I learned very quickly that in the desert you don’t cut the corner and brush the bushes. The shrubbery fights back.
To this day, my arms bear many scars from this lesson.... bloody arms were a thing back in the day of the Wickenburg enduro...
Anybody ridden Rampart lately? Was out two weeks ago and the single track was too snowed in to really be any fun. The ATV trails on the western part (Noddles) doing any better right now?
Yesterday at the entrance. No idea what the trails were like but I would guess there is a fair amount of snow on them.
I would suggest a different bike when riding Rampart.
That one is much to pretty to throw down in the dirt.
I agree with Assfault, but if you ever want to part with that April is let me know. She's a beaut!
I will keep that in mind. So far I have only ridden it about 150 miles. It now has a whopping 850 miles on it.
let me know when you want to ride out to see a couple of vintage motorcycle museums in Kansas
Is it bad that I thought that Aprilia was a V-strom while scrolling by? Is this how normal people see motorcycles?
This should be a wake up call telling me to ride on the street more. My poor V-Strom... I think I rode it 3 times this year. That damn KTM Blake sold me and my godforsaken trials bike take up all my time.
I took my 16 year old and 11 year old (Honda XR250 and XR100) on Saturday. The main road was in the best shape I've ever seen it in, but there were quite a few people at the North entrance parking lot. Since it was Zack's first trail ride after moving up to 100 from the 70 we went further down around Dutch Fred thinking it would get him away from others. The main trail that parallels the road was good, but if you got off the main and onto anything north facing there was snow and packed ice. I spent a lot of time picking up his bike and getting him started. Some of those trails have deep sides and no way to turn around and if they got icy on a descent it was a nightmare for him. Once I stopped to help there was zero traction to get going again. I had to ride that little 100 up nasty hills for him a couple of times (Still amazes me what that little bike is capable of!)
My verdict would be do it if you don't mind; needing to backtrack, picking up the bike, going slow to scout ahead, then go. If you want a warm, carefree ride then you might want to choose another destination. I'm glad we went, but it was "adventurous"
I recently heard that Colorado has some of the most convoluted tax laws in the country with 607 separate tax zones. Rock Auto won’t be the only online source not willing to deal with it.
It is so bad several small business IN Colorado are not selling to CO addresses.
Saw that yesterday and LMAO
Sitting in my hotel room after a long day of briefings in NY. Downing some Lebkuchen from Trader Joe’s and watching “Mile 22” with Mark Wahlberg. Now why does that matter?
51+33 mins into the movie a handful of bad guys are in pursuit of the good guys. The bad guys are riding 2nd gen KLR650s. This is fun. ADV bikes in a 2018 action movie.
What's the good guys riding?
Partying' with Wahlberg...good times!
