Steve: Hahah. I don't know how to explain it but MMA for me, needs more. I currently lean away from Brock and more towards the penny arcade comic's description. Now I have to dig out my Venture Bros. cd and watch em again. Thanks.

Mission Failed

We're back safe but tired. We didn't make it to MD. I had bike issues. I'll have a report tomorrow after much needed rest.

I have a new toy and time. Anyone game for a light overnighter, get above this freakin heat? Maybe hooper diversion then the bear creek ohv then camp at or near Mono Hot Springs (I might be able to get a free site there), mount tom lookout the next day. I've already done brewer and part of the dusy on this bike so I'm pretty comfortable with it already.

Or just a day trip? Red Lake? Bald Mountain? Swamp Lake?

Nice bike! How do you like those tires (IRC GP110's)? Great on the street, horrible on the dirt & wear pretty fast too in my opinion. Various online vendors have the shinko 244's for about $45 rear $30 front, which are just as good on the street, 10 times better in the dirt & last much longer......

I'm up for a ride this weekend (day trip), sat or sun let me know.....

Good eye! I'd have to agree with your assessment. Although I haven't had them long enough to comment on the wear rate. They are definitely a bit loose in the dirt though. And I had a difficult time climbing back up from deer lake ... but I was two up at the time and it was way looser and rutted than I remember it being last year.

I think I'm gonna head up to Mono tomorrow am and come back down Thursday evening. I'll hit you up this weekend for a day trip.

Hey mudpig, you might be closer to the truth than you realize. I hosted a CT camp and ride this past June and there was a fellow with that exact bike. He's a 350 pounder and it hauled him just fine. Check it out:

Thumb CT90 for rough trails

I was only half-kidding about that CT90. They were very good in slow terrain, had automatic clutch and reduction gearbox, could climb about anything just very slowly. Their low seat height made it easy to use your feet to help paddle through rough terrain and they only weighed 188 pounds. Top speed was only about 55, but for slow-going, ease of operation, and comfort they are terrific. I could see the guys having fun on one of these on the Rubicon...Would make that ride a whole lot easier...
