When ya gotto ride, ya gotta ride.
Going fast on KaTy M is fun and kinda scary, because it is so fast.
Going fast on Shadow requires skill, you must always think ahead, not just twist.

But if you get to high you hit snow, have to stay on the lower stuff.

I was mostly wondering if it has dried out there much... I took the R1200 out on single track when it was a bit muddy. I guess I wanted to practice picking the pig up, but it was still fun.

There are still a few greasy spots so as you ride you'll get lulled into total comfort. Then the back end will want to check out the flowers on one side of the trail while and the front end checks out other line options while you brain is thinking !!! So, the R1200 could still be a party on some of the single track ..... A couple more days of dry weather and that will change. Also, there are still some very deep pools of brown stuff. Comes up to about my boots on my 640 in spots.

May be better ATV riding conditions for a bit yet, then. I don't wanna rip things up. At least we are finally getting some warmer days.

I found myself stopped at a few spots looking at how to get though with out making a bigger mess out of it. Most people up there did not though!

Our, are you thinking of the bike!

I've run across this in the Tillamook Burn: some fireroads where I used to be able to gas it hard, and really fly, I now have to take at a slower pace because the encroaching greenery blocks the view around the corners.

So much for the theory that motorcycles are destroying the forests.

As for the road in the photo, the Cedars are the easy part and it's not even on the maps anymore. Luckily the few people that still use it have taken care not to leave much of a track. It's a first gear trail all the way and it stopped me a couple of times on the 640! Plus I did not want to leave a track...

The good news is snow level is rising slowly. On Sat I almost made it to mill creek ridge road from john mills/ketchum rd, elevation was about 3700ft. This was a 500ft improvement from a couple weeks ago. The thin layer from the week prior had all but melted.

Witnessed the AJ and the Hawk in action on Sunday up on John Mills rd. We turned around at the NF boundary. Sorry no pics. One could almost classify the Hawk as a dual-sport bike with the AJ at the helm.

I was talking about not ripping up the trails (mud on the bike is a badge of honor). That is a nice facility, and I do what I can to not rip it up, or annoy other users (hikers, mtn bikers).

I'm the same way with Post Canyon. Funny thing though, Sunday cars were parked all over the place and I thought I'd see tons of people but only met one Honda 4X4, one Mt bike and a woman walking her two dogs! I have no idea where everyone went but I sure did miss the party...

It looked like to the West of us (we are just South of the airport) and Post Canyon had a fair amount of rain again today, so it's back to mud again up there.
