The National Forest south of I-44 is more fun. Just to flat up north for me.

You can e-mail me for a gps track log of a neat ride that gets almost up your way. It's an all day ride on great gravel and dirt roads. I've did it a couple times-------------Thumper DRZ on here laid it out.

If you don't do track logs and gps's I can't help you.

The gps thing is a one second click of the mouse---------typing the route out on a post would take all day---or 2.
There are a bazillions turns.

E-mail me if you want me to send you the file.

I still need to take apart the swingarm and grease'er up good like I like to do with my bikes.....plus get the steering stem bearings checked and greased. I have did nothing with the WR since I got it......too many irons in the fire right now but it will happen.

If I only had a garage...

Bikes are under covers outside rusting in the snow. The snow is not bad, but the salt is just hell on em, so drove yesterday and today. Will be riding again next week. Anyone driving down for the 100 acre wood rally tomorrow? They are racing right now, and will be tomorrow as well. Snow and all! See the pics on their facebook

A couple of vids

Was out snowmobiling this past week, had some time today to upload a few videos. One is snowmobiling, the other is chasing ProDirtDale out in Colorado last August. Enjoy!

did not go down

Could not get anyone to ride down with me, or drive as it would have been. Long drive for just to see and head back. Been looking at the video highlights. They get some air on those roads. Good stuff. Must ride down if they have another this year.

Block and Tackle Video

Here is the Block and Tackle trail in CO. It is much steeper than it looks. Can anyone guess why it is called block & tackle?
