Angeles Forest Ride

Toby, Cathy, John, Paul and I met at the usual spot at 7:30AM. I rode the XR400 just to give it a little shakedown for next week's Kennedy Meadows camping and riding, today's ride ended up like a 145 mile loop with a half gallon left in the tank when I got home at 4:30 PM.



We hit the road right away knowing that the regular riders will be doing the Big Bear ride tomorrow.


If you like canyon riding, Little T is one of the tightest twisties out there...lots of fun












We didn't have a trail leader today....so we were all over the place



at the start of SCD from the west...trid



John on his 640A

the first several miles of scd is unmaintained pavement...good practice run for dodging potholes and rocks littered everywhere.

eventually we found dirt


i had a feeling that today will be cathy's biggest ride here in angeles forest









Toby is another GS rider prowling this place




trid's brp was sick today....too lean, back fires, misfires, chocking...etc


the 640a really looks good in orange


just after several riding days with the FFs, cathy made big progress



the dirt road we just did



nice view from above



the orange doesn't blend well in the landscape

Talking BPL loves Cathy

john talked to cathy in coming with us down to BPL



BPL is probably the worst, mixed of loose dirt, thick powdery sand, dust, rocks, etc...

there goes cathy



she made it halfway with no problem, then all of the sudden.....



got up...........




and kept going......



then we got to the bottom near the mines.........



you can see how nasty the road is...powdery dust and deep. i would think that those tire will just simply float...


took a short break at sito's trail


john gave that hill a shot...



made it to the top , so far only a handfull of guys made this hill, and i'm not one of them



john, next time i'll have the same coffee you got from 7-11...it makes wonders



sito's trail is one of my favorite, nice hard pack dirt and rolling terrain





the familiar water crossing, cathy is undeterred



trid makes a splash



the 640A has good water dynamics



this nOOb just graduated from noob 101

Buddies wife went from TW to CRF and hasn't looked back. Maybe an XT like Quiksys would be good too.

4N24 is fun

going up on 4N24, i noticed that cathy's bike is a little too small for her, or maybe it needs a taller bar....



john is telling me he drank 2 cups of coffee from 7-11



it was a beautiful day



that bike looks awfully small





we don't see this mighty big drop when we do the full mood ride...





good following john, i get reminded to stand up




back on pavement on mt. gleason



i love hauling ass on this road






across in the parking lot they heard NOWWHAT is coming and they came prepared for a "rematch"

add big panniers and the derrier may appear comparatively smaller!
