    I’ve been using slime without issue. Not to messy when swapping tires. They have exelent support. I got a nail my first ride it punctured tire, bladder and inner tube . Bladder is pretty much self sealing.they sent me replacement tube plus spares for front and rear.

    I would but this is the state of my bike as of today...

    I had no luck starting it, even with 100% fresh gas. I only got a few pops and sputters. A quick carb clean is in order.

    Tomorrow looks like it'll be a sweet day for anyone that has some studs to roll on. I really wish I could say yes.

    I was out there a couple weeks back. When you come out of the misery trail and head towards Mary's they did some logging on the left by the fork in the road and gate. Then when you take a right back onto the trail (just before the house) and come to the end they have down a ton of logging along that main road. Headed towards the next trail head (down on the right) it is all opened up.

    can only hope it's just logging. The state said they were gonna log it because of Gypsy Moth damage. Most likely they are logging it because the gun range would forever prevent that after it gets built. I just wonder how a "broke-ass" state can justify spending 25 mil on a gun range when there is one that's usable 99.95% of the time. Hasn't flooded in years and a few dikes would solve that.

    I never regret going riding even when it’s crappy. I regret when I’m heading back to work on Monday thinking damn I should have went riding.

    I was thinking that too. I know these guys are never right but one thing is for sure it will be muddy. 937D41B4-E299-4161-935B-68886DA9A516.png

    I managed to knock off 90% of the mud and get the jets out and cleaned. Hopefully I'll get it back to 100% by the end of the week.

    Is there any talk of a route around the gun range if built ?

    If parks open is there going to be a camp and ride ?

    the only thing I've read is they want a 1 mile radius safety zone. That would eliminate Mt Misery and Babyhead Hill.
