Anybody up for a Ride?

Planning a ride Thu or Fri of this week (20th or 21st) covering some or all of Python's great tracks in TN.

We'll be coming from Ellijay trying to hit as much off-road as possible and probably starting out at Witt Rd, either near Farner or Tellico Plains (suggestions from those who have done it ?)

I'm on a KTM 690 but my friend is on a wee-strom, with new Tourance tires and good skill. Will the Wee make all the trails (we'd like to do 81 and 82)?

Thanks for suggestions, adivce and anybody who'd like to join us please chime in. We're pretty flexible on day if the weather looks like it will hold, although right now Thu looks like the last decent day this week

Walkabout (Drew).

I would not recommend a WEE on either of the trails 81 or 82. A really good rider probably could do it. 81 is the more technical one. I have not ridden it but I have hiked the hard part of it and watched other do it. There are a few sections on it that if there was a mishap I do not believe that two people could get a WEE back to to trail.

I have done 82 a few times. There is a steep section on the northern end of the trail that is difficult. All of the rest is pretty narrow side of a mountain trail.

Others please chime in.

A few pics of trail 81:



There is a trail there.

I don't ride a wee but I probably wouldn't take one on the single track. THere was one section that the DRs had a little trouble with:


go to 6:25

Thanks for all the info. The wee may stay at home, but then again maybe not. I'll let you know what happens !

And the Wee stayed home

So my neighbor bailed and after riding it I would agree. Either I'm the first one to ride FS81 this season or it grows VERY quickly but there were many areas where I couldn't see the trail for the growth.

Cool ride though. Smith Mtn Rd is also very cool. Couldn't find the elusive Witt Rd on my maps or would have tried that too.

Thanks to Python for making the routes.

Thanks for posting the GPX files! I'm heading up there Wednesday to ride for a week, and want to be able to use some of this info, but for some reason, mapsource won't send any of this info to my Zumo 450. Any ideas??


Thanks.

Anyone going to be around June 12-16? I'll be up from FL and am looking for some dirt. Thinking solo could be tuff.

Where will you be?

I should be around for at least one ride during that time. Where will you be staying and what do you ride?

What types of trails - gravel, ST, DT?

Check out some of the Nth GA threads for good places.

Drew.

Some pics from today







On trail 82, Rocker tried to miss a muddy part and ended up falling. He bent the piss out of the shifter and rode to the end of the trail where he tried to give it another adjustment.........AND SNAPPED THE DAMN SHIFTER SHAFT :(
The only good part was, it was stuck in third gear and he rode it all the way back to the truck.







Thanks for the info Python423

Thanks for the tracks! Excellent ride!

Trails 81 & 82 were fun. Even on the F800! Wish there were more of those trails around!

Thanks for the track/waypoints!

I'll be up next week snooping around... Did you really take the F8 on that stuff?
Not on the stock tires I'm guessing?
