The Saturday after Thanksgiving Coke Oven Ride 2012 Version

We're planning to do it again this year. This is a 55 mile loop, roughly ten miles of pavement, ten miles or so of relatively mild two track, but the remaining 35 miles is interesting with a few well photographed technical spots. This is a small bike ride for all but the exceptional riders. very rocky, remote area's. Last year we had a Roger running chase in his Razor, I'm hoping we get simular support this time. I'll post more details later, but save Saturday Nov. 24th for this ride if your up to it. The scenery is gorgeous & the people that show up for this one have been a blast to ride with.

Last year's event http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...ght=coke+ovens

Staging in the same place, it was pretty cool at 8am last year so let's plan on kickstand up at 9am. Please read the link above before commiting if you have not done this before. Healthy well prepared riders on well maintained/prepared bikes are welcome. This ride has a bit of everything, rocks, deep sand, more rocks, water, rocks stacked on top of rocks, slick decomposed granite & a few rocks. Hopefully you won't but you should plan on having a flat & have what you need to handle it. If we have a chase vehicle, I'll put together some spare tubes & some oil (for the Honda acrobatic team) but plan on being self sufficient. Bring plenty of water & snacks. The plan is to eat lunch at Los Hermanos around 2pm IF we don't have issues.

Looks like we will have not one but TWO chase vehicles Roger in the 4 seater Robby Gordon Razor & My buddy Dave just bought a long arm two seater Razor. If somebody has a decent medical bag we can load that & I'll put together a bag with a couple of tubes & oil. Fuel shouldn't be an issue for anyone.

In list:
4play KTM450XC
Nightstalker Honda 450X
Mike955i Out due to a reading comprehension issue
Refokus KTM450EXC

Mongo, please DON"T refer to doing the route backwards as "thru the back door" you'll scare away the visitors.

I think a pre ride is in order to decide on the route. I personally liked running it backwards last year but I'm open to options.

Hey, How about a big bike crew? Allen, Allyn, Dillon, Brad, Drew, YB, Rick, Spencer, Bob, Charlie, what say you??

Remember a couple years ago when Bill brought out that brand new 690? That was fun.

Maybe we can get Ricklee to come out again this year?? What about that new guy who rides his GS "aggressively"?? That would be fun!

Yea, i like smilely's what about it??

I'd be willing to tackle this on the SE if we're NOT going "through the back door". There are a couple things I don't think I want to try in the reverse direction on a big bike. No need to rename "Honda Hill" to "SE Hill"!

Which direction has less rocks? Doh, nevermind...

I'll try to make it, put me down as "probable."

I'm out. LA2B2LV is the same day and the Baja 1k is the following week. I'm hoping to ride in D37 or chase the 1k with azcagiva and need to save my pennies, parts and bones.

all dirt loop

Hey is there any way to make this an all dirt loop? I want to do this on the TTR125 so it's not street legal. I could always do an in and out but riding alone sucks.

If there's no way then I'll bring the DRZ.

You could stage at the end of the pavement & have somebody haul your little 125 butt back to you vehicle after lunch. If Spencer shows up I'm sure he'd let you ride bitch back to the truck


I'm open to idea's, I would entertain doing an in and back out with some detours that would be all rock (you said dirt, but it;s rock)
Yardstick found a cool alternate on the last pre ride that some of us missed.& I'm sure NS has an alternate trail or two?

So Happy and Sad all at once

I am so SAD that I am going to miss this and so HAPPY all at the same time, because that hill kicked my butt last year

At least I know there will be pictures of the carnage!
