    It's easy to get caught up in the hooliganism of a big gang of bikers. :lol3



    don't worry, the Shawnee forest service will scrap it off when they go up and paint over the graffiti, I think they do it every couple years or so.

    I rode mostly dirt for a solid three hours yesterday, Sexton Creek was completely new and rough. Everywhere else was perfect dirt but the rain is coming.

    No OCD here dingle berry, I just learn from mistakes I have made in the past, unlike the guy that trashed 2 nice jeeps in the mud in a matter of months. :dhorse

    I have a lot more fun if I'm not all gummed up with mud.

    Last weekend me and the boy (thumper87) rode down to check out the falls, It rained 3 1/2 inches on Thursday night and another 1/2 inch on us while riding down on Friday morning, it had stopped by the time we got there thankfully.


    Burden falls was humping.

    Even some other falls around the bluff that hardly ever have water going over them were rolling.

    Jackson falls was going good also, no pics from the bottom, it's quite a chore to get down there.

    Did we pass each other about 2 or so weeks ago on the road going to Bell Smith Springs--------I was on my 690.

    Didn't know if that was you or not--------I waved and stopped at the rider---but they kept going and disappeared !!

    I hadn't been down there in 25 years--------probably was on an old Harley back then.
