Cory,
Nice meeting you, and riding with you. Yes, the "Big Bikes" were a little bit of a handful on some of those trails....Trail 6 was more than I was expecting. But it was a good time, none the less!

Does the mud, make me look fat??? that mud puddle (lake) took me out! i have to figure out my technique....

The only other person we seen was a girl on a yammi, that's it.

Cory, your a good sport man, how did the HP2 do?
The big bikes are great but they wear you out fast in the tighter stuff, the XR650's are great for most of that area.

Hopefully I can catch some of you on the next ride..
Sorry we missed you James. What are you riding?

The HP2 did great its way more capable than I am. The real problem i have is its tall and when its off road conditions footing can be an issue and it gets heavy quick. The 950 super enduro did every thing as well too. I just wish I was taller or the bike was shorter. We did do a fair amount of single track and i got forearm pump and tired hands real fast. Dropping it didnt help my feeling fresh at all either. It took help picking it more than once.

the SE is tall too, and that was an issue as well for some of the single track we did. But that curvy paved road did pose a problem.....but it crashes well!!!

Yeah trail 6 was no joke for any bike really. You rode great on the 950. Nice putting faces to the names tell next time ride safe and keep it rubber side down. You need a motrin?

I was on a 450 Husaberg but had limited fuel range.

The HP2 can be a handfull no doubt, I sold mine before I destroyed it
If you like travel on that bike and want it lowered it can be fixed with suspension work, otherwise a 17/19 combo like on the big GS would get you closer to the ground.

Superhunk, looks like you bought Luca's bike, congrats!

Sunday June 6 Street Ride

I'm in need of a good long stree ride. With summer approaching, Clear lake should be getting a bit more populated with some honey's in bikini's.

I was thinking back roads through wine country to Lake Berryessa, up to clear lake and get some chow. then over to Hopland, then maybe out to the coast and home.

Should take all day.

Maybe Meet up in Rohnert Park somewhere.

Takers? Not sure which bike I'll take

I'll post a pic of the route later

Corey;

Looking pretty pro there man. Nicely done.

Trinity has less single track, smoother jeep trails, but the same sarcastic with.

The mud doesn't make you look fat, but the grind mark on the bark buster tells me you can really lean that thing over in the turns.

erg

p.s. Will weld for turn signals, head light lenses or trail pack sized block and tackle capable of lifting 300 pounds vertically at least 20 feet. . .
