For those in the area, this is the M5 crossing of the NF Cache Creek near Hough Springs.
If he came all the way down M5 from Goat Mountain then my guess is he got himself stuck by going to slow in the crossing. He was then unable to muscle the bike out of the mud and rock. A come-along is a good tool to carry, but there's usually a Jeep with a winch in the area (within 30 miles!)

Most all of those roads are of the 2 to 3 daily passersby type. I believe your best bet is to wait with the bike. The first passerby can help you out of the situation-or get help if that is in the cards. Enloe Hospital in Chico sells Helicopter Evac insurance for about $40 a year if you ride this area.

Seems to be about 1 Med Evac each weekend in my casual observation...though if this rider walked away I suppose they were not injured...

Toward Clear Lake south of Bartlett Springs:


I've never been stuck in a creek before, but the Bear Creek crossing has threatened to swallow me on more than one occaision. Frozen water crossings out there seem to be my nemesis on a bad day...

The bike was facing the opposite direction, towards Goat Mtn. Just 100 feet up the hill behind the bike in the first photo is Bartlett Springs Rd. That was his best bet for help. This was late on a Sunday afternoon and the forest is getting pretty empty then.

Only because I was a relative noob to riding in the dirt, traveling solo, it was 5:00 in the afternoon and I had a bit of backtracking to do.

How is this?

Not me but I took the pic and then took my turn.

[IMG][/IMG]

I crossed this one first and the rest for some dumb reason followed me.

[IMG][/IMG]

Didn't do this one this slad took a pick up truck a few years ago and one of the guys didn't make it.....the slab is very slick when it's wet

[IMG]

My son and I were out for a ride and came up on this one he snapped the pic but didn't feel like giving it a try......wise young boy.....I would have tried it

I don't understand, none of the pictures posted so far have a Ford in them! He said Ford, not motorcycles!


DUH! Like this!
