SCD and LG on March 1st

Initially, the plan was to do Lake Hughes once again. I realized that's a whole day ride, just like last Saturday. Great ride but I will be sore afterwards.

Now, we're thinking of doing SCD this coming Saturday and continue to Lynx Gulch. Hopefully the snow and ice will not be as intimidating.

Others who want to join us, just show up at Ranch Side Mexican Restaurant (next to 7-11) near the Osborne off-ramp. As usual the ride up on Little T will be fun, if you like the twisties. We'll decide where to go for lunch.

We leave at 8:00 AM.

Snow should not be an issue. I think I'm going to go Sat. I plan on doing SCD go about 3/4 of the way then head down the back side and play around on some of the fun tracks back thier. Then I'll hit Lynx's and stop and get Pie at Hidden Valley by 10:30 - 11:00.

This is a fun route lots of fun dirt not just flat fire roads. Should be a nice day for riding

See ya all tomorrow morning.

We need to plan a Johnson Valley ride. I bought a set of Gary Semic's DVD, eight of them. Once I get them in my head, then it's time to put them into actions. A wide open space is all I need.

I remember Sito's tracks before entering a corner, this was on Semic's video.

Made it home with a happy grin on my face. That was another very good ride, that's 2 weekends in a row. No snow, no ice, do dust, a little chilly on the way up, got warm, then cold on the way down.

Thanks to Sito for leading us to a trail, brand new to me. It's more challenging than SCD; it was awesome, but a lot of work needed. I was so tired that I let my bike take a nap 3x from standing still.

Lunch at Don Cuco's at Acton was very good. Thanks to Artboy for picking the place.

The ride home on Little T is always satisfying, lots of tight twisties. Gee, Artboy rode the 400S like a Hayabusa. Doing 50 on my XR400 on the curves still not fast enough to catch up.

Now I realize I need to get in shape. Doing 150 miles today and half of that is dirt, just beat me up. Legs and arms are sore again.
