    Thanks Brainless, if things look good I am planning a bit of a scouting mission for trials riding. I've driven back to the camping area and it looks nice. The wife wouldn't have to use a bush (or a bucket in the van) LOL. I'll probably bring my trials bike and my 350.

    There hasn't been very many folks in the area riding. I usually have the mesa to myself.

    Rode twice this week. Once in the pinion area. Second ride was near the motocross track. Did not see a single person either day.

    56247182-4BDA-4F33-8036-F1581CC7E190.jpeg I am aiming for a ducked up version of this without the spoked wheels and a stock tank. But definitely with the raised wheel lettering on the tires.


    Brainless_1 is going to teach me how to weld.

    Now I understand the welder’s cap. My 11 year old and I were trying to figure out what that smell was when we discovered we melted our hair.


    Of note, his welds were better than mine.
