Fun time everywhere

Madhouse - glad you guys had fun and made it out safely... I dont love single track near as much as I use to...

Now what we rode was a blast as you know... Thanks for the tracks.

With just three KTMs were did pretty good making it around. Rode about 130 miles of it anyway...

A few pics to show we were there...









BTW - My ASS hurts....

Hope everyone made it home safe!

Vic, glad yawwl liked that route.
I gotta different (slightly more technical) route that I hope you'll be able to go on when turkey season is over. Sometime in early april.

The Rattlesnake trail ride was fun in a way. It was immediatly clear that a heavy/unwieldy DRZ with stock gearing is not the right tool for the job.
Robin had the right idea with his 200cc Gas Gas.

We talked to Ron Pruitt (say's he's 65 years old) and he said the right bike would be something (a KTM two stroke) less than 300cc's with a Recluse clutch. Friendly fella!

Ahh Ron Pruitt is an old friend. I used to ride two rows behind him in the enduros.

N30 29.858 W86 55.708 should get your pretty close. There is also an APC at the other end of the field. That area is freshly clear cut and they must have just dropped em off because there were still green ferns growing underneath.
