For the rock trail, so the left at the WF right, you are referring to the large 5-way intersection on the main rd (we call the main rd Casca-Del)? So you are turning left onto 8S28, right onto 8S28X and then merging onto 7S94? I need to explore that area more. I've only ever rode down 23E284 to 7S68 and up Plank Trail to Brown's Creek Trail (7S83) which is pretty fun.

I don't see any rock faces in that area, so are you riding 7S94 all the way to the rock just below Brown's Creek Trail (7S83)?

We need to ride this area sometime together...too bad this weekend is already booked.

Yep, we just found that out on Monday. We went in the same way as the week before, but ended up coming out at about the mid point on the browns creek trail. So you can connect the 7S94 to the 7S83 by going out onto that granite spot Find something new every time I ride up there

This is after we left our lunch stop out on the rocks & then I somehow found the single track out to the Browns creek trail.

Right on then, I was bummed that I hadn't ordered the wolfman daytripper saddle bags I've been drooling over. I want a tail bag from them too.

Now all I have to decide is bring the dual sport or the Honda. Just put a new headlight on the Husky and it would be a good chance to check it out so I'm leaning that way?? Night ride sounds like fun. :

Lemme know if I can truck up any supplies or other crap for ya guys on Sat.

Talking Yes, I still ride.....

Took a nice 127 mile afternoon run yesterday to try out the new taillights, turn signals, tail bag and throttle tube. Met the wife for lunch in Shaver Lake then stopped by Courtright Reservoir to Black Rock and out past Pine Flat. Everything worked great. The previous sticking throttle is now gone. I just had to get the right size throttle tube.

Getting ready for motorcycle camping. Ordered a sleeping bag and pad. Might get a new tent as well. I got a little wet in DV last trip.

Have fun camping this weekend. I will be working.

Yeah seriously...I find something new everytime I'm up there! Have you ever been up Plank Trail? I've only been up once but it comes in somewhere around the 3:00 mark of your video. You take a right off 7S94, probably before the point where you went up. You know it's plank when you start seeing 2x4s in the trail...not for the faint of heart!

Whiskey Falls camping

Had a great time this weekend, got to ride some new trails...and I've probably still only covered half of them

We got to Whiskey Falls CG around 10:30am, set up camp & then headed out to ride some awesome single track! Funny how 30 miles of single track will kick your ass when your bike weighs 350+ pounds

All single track & such on day one then we went to Shuteye & back on Sunday taking the fun connector trails over to central camp rd & back home between 5:30 & 6pm.

It sucked coming home in the 100+ weather with my waterproof jacket on...need to get something more meshy ASAP
