New Year's Hangover Ride 3.0

A handful of FF's from Tulsa, OK and nearby had our 3rd annual New Year's Day Hangover ride at Camp Gruber OHV Park.

It was the biggest turnout yet. Here are the players-
ADVRdrWannabe - XR400
Dirt2007 - Husky 450
Tomski74 - DR650
Newner - KLR650 (green)
RedDirtjoe - XT225
Throttlemeister - XR200R
DirtyDog - KLR650 (black)
FatBob - TE610
Krabill - Super Tenere
Z50StartedIt - WR250
JumpJet - KTM 400

Pretty casual day. We rode a bit, broke for lunch, and rode some more. My camera was one of several used throughout the day.

Krabill met us at the start of the day, but because he broke his foot the previous day, it was a brief visit on his road bike.


FatBob was gracious enough to allow ADVRdrWannabe to borrow a bike for the day. Bob was enjoying the hangover ride in a special way.




His was called SOB hill. From the bottom, it looks way more difficult than it actually is. Other hills gave us more issue.


Lots of nice views.



Most of the terrain was quad trails, but we had some occasional singletrack.



The trails crossed a creek numerous times. Some places were deeper than others. Some riders (ahem) don't bother to scout deep crossings.





Here is the offending creek. Looks innocent enough?



Way more than 200cc of water came out. No idea where it was storing all that water.

Oil change was necessary. Oil looked like paint.


Cheap ass KLR rider in action. Foamed crankcase oil = free chain lube


Make sure you lube that swingarm too.


Fun day, fellas. Hreat way to ring in 2012.
