We talked about it. Didn't look like there was an easy way out of there.

The water was cold....and deep too!

When Ben and I got there we met a few fellow dirt bike riders. One guy had a YZ250f and the other had a 1999 or so 250exc two stroke. After hanging out with the KTM rider it turns out that he and his Dad until his passing where huge Japanese Motorcycle collectors.
It was really cool talking to him about all his projects and favorite bikes. In 1991 my brother had a 1969 DT250 which is the oldest bike I have ridden but it was fun to ride.



We used to ride it down in ST Pete and just had a blast spinning the wheels in the sandy alleys.

Here is a link to my ride video

Does anyone wanna ride the forest roads around Springer Mtn on New Year's Day?

We have 2 people going so far meeting here (LINK) probably around 11:00 or so.

Tibbs Trail

I believe this little section of a rocky trail is called Tibbs Trail in the Cohutta, is it always this rocky or is it because of the rain washing it down the mountain?
We had a helluva time making it up yesterday. The mist, clouds, and fog did not help matters.
My friend Mike took us on this ride yesterday on his 640, and he danced his way up the rocks, making this look so easy. It was awesome.

That looks more rocky than I remembered but the fog is heavy this time of year up there. That whole mountain is filled with rock gardens. Rock Creek, Milma, Tibbs, and Windy Gap are rocky!

Windy Gap is a bit tougher than Tibbs, but those stair steps near the top of Tibbs are a little tricky.

So it is

Yea, that Tibbs was pretty challenging, I only fell over three times...
Throw in the fog and the wet slippery rocks, I almost did call for Chinook air support.

Mike mentioned Windy Gap and I remember all the posts here, and said, maybe another day my friend.

We are going back when it's a bit drier and traction might improve.

I think we did Milna and it was awesome except for the traction on some of the downhill sections and visibility. We were hoping for better but oh well, just smile and ride!
