An adventure ride in CNF

Oh yes, last night was an adventure! Plans changed right from the beginning and my little enchanted forest had some surprises for us....
Met Jerry and Steve at the peak. They came from the east, me from the west. Nice easy ride to the top. Fire road was fun and the jimmy trail, grinch cut off and blazer trail were a blast. Shared some salutations at the top with Jerry and Steve. Kyle (?) showed up shortly after. We decided to take blazer down and head to old camp. Boy did it get interesting then! Without getting into too much detail, Steve took a NARLY tumble and ended up in a deep ravine. Luckily he and the bike were ok. The thick brush breaking his fall. Somehow, through sheer dogged determination we were able to push, lift, carry and just let tumble, his bike through the ravine and back to the trail. It seemed impossible at first, but we did it! We made it to old camp, beat, dirty and sweaty! Didnt stay long and rode the trail gingerly out to live oak and to Cooks by about 1am!
What a fuckin adventure we had. Yeah , CNF SUCKS!
Im beat this morning!

CNF-A night above the fog

Well it started out with plans to be home by 11pm!

We were burning a fast pace with plans to meet Michael at Cook's
I was rolling with two new guys one determined to succeed to other not so much. One turned back during one steep, long, rocky uphill in the back basin of CL. Steve and I picked up the pace and made it to the top of El Carriso TT at 7PM. Cook's was no longer an option... Called Michael... meet us at the peak!!

We got ot the peak just after sunset... An awesome red/orange sunset!

We hung out for a while then it was time to ride!!

We headed down Blazer trail... Steve was on an Infamous XR650R AKA "The BRP" and it is a pig/bitch!!

But Steve was game!! lets roll... the trail is steep and twisty, rocky, Oh and drops down to one side along most of the length of the trail.
Long story short Steve lost his balance on a little step up and was falling to the right with nothing but slope...
Down to a creek bed about 20-30 feet below. He was ok and seeing this happen right in my headlight in front of me it was a little scary.

I thought for sure his bike was unretrievable!! But Steve lead the charge in finding a way out with Michael down in the shit pushing through the rocks, tree trunks and bushes.
THIS IS WHERE YOU FIND OUT WHAT YOUR REALLY MADE OF!!
We were still about five miles from the nearest road and it was almost midnight. Our biggest concern was for retrieving his bike but after using my phone for a flashlight I thought... Shit I need to get a picture of this!!
So I got two and then my phone battery died.





We got it out!!
Just three guys out riding together helping each other out.

We ended up in OC a long way from home!!
We regrouped at Cook's it was now about 1:30AM!!
We rolled into MV for gas and then turned around and back up the mountain to the otherside!!
I walked in the door just after 4AM to a worried wife and a warm shower!!

Another great memory to be remembered around future campfires!!

Until next time boys!!!

It's alive!

The Husky locked up on me last weekend. I was just putting along and I hear a pop and then my bike stops running. Hit the start button and just a single thud. OK, pull the kick starter out and try to kick it over....nothing, it won't budge.

Put her in neutral and I'm lucky enough that I'm able to let gravity get me down to the power-line road. My buddies take off to get a truck and I took a nice nap for about an hour and a half. I had nightmares of $1500 repair bills followed by dreams of a 2013 350exc which were followed immediately by nightmares of telling my wife I'll need to drop 9K on a new scooter.

This past Saturday was the autopsy. Pulled the clutch cover and all looks good. Pulled the clutch and basket and all looks good but still locked up. Pull the sprag clutch gear and it seem OK and looks good. With the sprag gear off everything freed up. Put the sprag back on and everything everything still working properly. Re-assemble and the bike fires right up.

So now the big mind fuck is what the hell was wrong? Is it good to go? Will it happen again? Will I be by myself in the bottom of a canyon as the sun sets when it locks up again?

Thoughts?
