Lake Wateree Fun Ride

This was a spur of the moment ride instigated by boybrushedplad and PeeDeeRider.
We started out at Cedar Creek Store - a bike friendly joint with an owner that provided free pizza and coffee.
After a few miles of pavement we hit the dirt.



And took care of business...


The road quickly turned into red clay. For those that don't know red clay is just axle grease with a different color...
To protect the pride of the fallen no names will be released.



After a few miles a quick trail fix for a broken starter switch.



And we were back on the road..

We took a scenic detour and found some whoop de whoops but it was over to soon.



We decided that it was getting late and it would be best if we headed towards the main road before dark.
Wet red clay and night time are not a good mix.

We made a final check of out bikes and went our seperate directions.



I want to thank PeeDeeRider, JALnSC, and boybrushedplad for riding with me. It was a nice outing and I look forward to doing it again.
Hopefully they have some other pics to add..

Laugh Home safe and cold

Has a really good time today getting the XR covered in clay. Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos
if you ride in mud you get muddy, right. What do out get if you ride in clay? Those street bike tires are actually d606 with 1/2 inch tread.
After going through this we came upon this sign facing the other way, we had to pass it to see the road was closed.

yes it was orange wheel bearing grease.

a closing photo of four tired bikes. One with almost no gas. I had to go to reserve on the way to Camden. Home safe and sound used alot of gas and very little oil, good day.

yup

It was a great ride today. That area is wealth of good DS riding. We need to go back and find some more.

As usual... I was having way too much fun to stop and take alot of pictures. I did manage to get a few though.
