Today's ride

Met up with Tazs over at the Hernando area, and i must say that this is THE BEST riding i ever done, this place has everything, up hill climbs, downhill, single track, double track, hard pack, soft pack, whoops. it has it all.
I felt like i was riding a roller coaster at six flags! so much fun.

hill climbs are not too bad, just select the climbs very cautiously, some of them are almost vertical, and some are quite doable. at times i was standing there and looking at these crazy almost vertical hill climbs and saw motorcycle tracks burnt in them, so some one out there did climb these crazy verticals, and i stand and just stare and just think this is impossible.

The area is super fun, we had a DRZ400S (Tazs) and a Husky TE510, and the bikes handled everything just fine, but i personally would not take anything bigger than a DRZ400S there.

anyhow here are the pics, i dont have that many pics as we were too busy riding.

Look closely at the top left corner of the photo, at the vertical hill, there is a motorcycle wheel track there, so some one was crazy enough to go up there.


and again the same tire rut between the trees

Fun Ride Hernando

Thanks for coming BoRkA .... Was a great ride ! We saw two other atv's on the southside and also as crazy as it may sound, we saw four jeeps on the north side that had made a jeep trail around and through a huge rough and very overgrown pit, was very tight for them.

Looking forward to riding again soon at Hernando, Tazs

Hey I thought to be a Wanker the sling had to be optional.

Sorry, but from the perspective of someone who's lived in the west, that looks hideous. Axle-deep sand is just not fun, although I understand why Flatistaners convince themselves otherwise. I used to be one.

Feh! That's primo Flatistan terrain d00d!

Just look at those nosebleed type elevation changes... the soft, cushy sand that averts nasty dirt naps... and the beautiful old growth that provides plenty of shade on a mild November day!


That's an all around... WIN!

Not being a proficient sand flea, how would one tackle/approach the decline in the fourth photo in post 9416?

Is this taken at WOT and a prayer or do most guys gear down and engine brake it down? Outside / Inside?

that downhill in the 4th pic was steep, Tazs tried going down, but he had to stop mid way and i had to help him out.
We usually took slightly less steep hills, and those you just ride all the way down with the clutch pulled in and ride the rear brake, there is enough traction on the back wheel to slow you down with the rear brake

You needed to do this hill at least once.... thanks for the tip. I'd love to do that ride. Next time someone heads out there, send me a pm. I'm game.
