QUESTION?

Who has ridden the Hanging Rock event and can give me an idea of the difficulty level for a friend?

If you had, you would have gotten it! Looking forward to seeing Mental on her new Adventure? Did you like the DOHC boxer?

Pretty much like Flint Ridge or Boot Leg as far as terrain and ride goes, but the timing is what makes it a bitch because it's usually always wet and unless you're fast and the first one through some of the crossings or wet spots, it turns into a slogging mud fest. I liked it, but I wouldn't run that on anything less than fresh aggressive knobbies.

It would depend on what your friend usually rides. I thought it was a bit hard because of what I usually ride, and how my bike was set up. As a resident of the northeast part of the state, I'm not used to the real tight woods. In fact, I thought it was the tightest woods I've been in. I had to stop to wiggle the handle bars through a couple of times. You also couldn't see very far ahead, as all the greenery was in full bloom. Since it was a mudfest, and couldn't see ahead very far, I ended up going too slow to clean the knobbies much, and was sliding around the whole day. Some of the creek crossings were tough because the dirt was gone leaving only the muddy slippery roots.

The really tough sections are marked, and have go arounds. I tried 1 or 2 of the optional sections in the first part of the day, and they were not that much harder than the other stuff. In the afternoon,I was too tired from picking my bike up to try any more.

I'm probably going back this year, but I'll have 2 less teeth on the front sprocket. 90% of the bikes I saw were 250cc or less and orange - so think small and light. I had a 450, and it was too much for my abilities. My buddy on his XR250 did much better.

Now you know why I raced a 250 and gave up on big bores. You need to ride in the woods with me a some time and lay off that gravel stuff for a while.

Are you sure that Sheldon and Eastland are connected at the intersection? They weren't this summer.

All plans are vanity, but the plan is for pauley and me to step out of Cambridge at 10 AM for the Cleveland show.

That intersection looks like it was under construction for an overpass recently so...


Get off at Bagley, turn left

Turn right on Rocky River Rd

Turn LEFT on Grayton to dead end

Turn right on Aerospace to IX center.

That will get you around all the traffic and to the head of the line to get in

I'm not ready to abandon it yet, but I did gear it lower. Woods? I keep trying to get out for any ride with you, but our schedule's don't seem to ever align. They way things were the last 1/2 of 2011, I was off of everything, gravel, trails, street, water. I didn't even get my ski boat in the water. I'm hoping to do better this year. Anyone else here water ski?
