    The tires were great, I liked them, along with all the other logs. I stopped and said hi to you, right after the tires.
    My helmet-cam quit working right after it took this shot. :D LOL

    spent saturday scouting an area we havent ridden in 3 or so years, looks like we will have at least a 3 miles hero section before lunch back in the mix. if we get our crap together we may have a second one just around the corner from there too. took some pics, just need to get mrs. lj to help me load them.

    I know people that ride this event but i really don't know that much about it. How much on road riding is there? I don't like riding on the road, i avoid it as much as possible. what is the total distance covered? I'm not getting enough info from the website.

    Not many of us are fans of riding on the road :D That being said, the times we do spend on the road to connect to the off road sections don't seem to matter much since the off road stuff is a blast! Go here to check out some pictures of past events:

    I think I put 140 miles + on Saturday at the ride for research event this year. We bailed on Sunday but I think the route was like 80 miles. The comrade, food, friends, riding, hero's are well worth dealing with some of the connecting road sections. But that's just my .02 cents worth.

    what do you consiter "road" most everything ( everything-except the routes thru private property and single track) we do is consitered open for travel by legaly lisensed vehicals. saturday is in the 150 mile range- total blacktop for the day is 30ish miles. the ballance is gravel, sand roads, 2 track and the like. sunday has more tar roads by % and is only 100 miles - has more hero sections. part of the roady parts can be cut out if you choose to go off the roll chart and cut the day short. we always try and keep the tar roads to a minium because we so strongly suggest that everyone come up with knobbies, but some has to be used to get in and out of towns, to gas, and make connections with out having to add 20 to 30 miles of gravel -running many out of gas and increasing the cases of monkey butt. hope that answerss your question. lj

    :rofl I was waiting for that! I believe it was me who wimped out this time, had to work Monday and rode a bunch of the hero's on Friday. After seeing the pics from your place we both kicked our own ass's for a few days. We PROMISE at some point in time to actually ride on Sunday. :raabia

    I avoid slab as much as possible also. It's just one of the things one has to deal with in order to ride some very nice off-road and single track hero sections. None of these single track areas would be available to ride if it weren't for these dual sport events-so these are areas that you won't see or be able to access other than the events. Sometimes the slab/gravel/two-track is even welcome as it offers a chance to cool off a bit and relax before the next hero section. Give it a try-I'm betting you will like it. I'm an old enduro and hare scrambles guy and I'm totally hooked on these rides.

    I drooled when I saw your trials stuff LJ. Now there is more reason than ever to ride Sunday, (that equates to behaving on Saturday night) even if we just head out to your place and spend the entire morning there.

    i just hate the thought of ruining a trials tire, riding it on the pavement. the damn things are expensive and I hate changing tires.
