I truly wish I had your back yard.

Working on the bikes sucks when your friends are out riding, thanks for the help on the camery door handle had it replaced in about and hour (if my eyes only could see) lucky the fingertip eyes still work.

Looking forward to riding up your way soon.

Peter, I'm ready whenever you are, see ya next week @ WMRS ride!

Ride tomorrow

Martin,

I'm headed up the hill right now and am planning on heading down to the meet spot in the morning. Text me whether or not you are going to make it tonight & I'll check it when I get service so that I won't have to come all the way down if no one is there. Thanks....#...... tree tree won - five tree won oh.

JP

What kind of shape was Thompson Hill in? I was up there a few weeks ago on my 530 with my Sumo Setup, I had never DS the area before, was up there on Vacation near Huntington. I love spending time in the back country and thats why I took the bike, I didnt plan on doing alot of off road stuff and pressed for time I left my 17's on... I come over the pass and see a sign for the Dusy, im like NO WAY! Turn right and start heading up, lol after a mile or so I was getting my ass handed to me and I was crying for knobby and a trials tire lol.... Awesome place to ride! I cant wait to get back up there!!

That's funny! Can't imagine doing the Dusy on 17's...or even a heavy 4-stroke for that matter. I've ridden mine through the gateway and up to the top of Voyager Rock but that was far enough on the big bike. I was just up in the Sierra last weekend riding a jeep trail on my SM610 loaded for a few days of camping. It wasn't quite up to the Dusy's standards but it was rocky nonetheless...big wheels+big rocks=a handful, for sure



I was envious of Eric's dirt wheels and extra ground clearance...







Does anyone know offhand if the Dusy has a definitive closing date or is it still weather-related? I know it has an official August opening date now...which is a shame. I wouldn't mind riding it again this year.
