Probably going to do a ride behind Pluric's place, out in the grasslands.
I'm actually doing slab 21st-24th. Somewhere in Montana? I didn't do the route. Slave driver is out of
town the week after so I have to get a small fix before the bitch slap.

I'm also in the middle of a cosmetic remodel of my Dads home. Every evening and weekend have been
spent over there. So everyone please keep posting about how much fun they are having. I've run out
of salt to put on the open wounds and the RR are a nice replacement.

Yep. Definitely a "Cadillac" problem.

Had a good evening ride in Snake Creek, Mineral, American Fork. Lots of gigantic, bike swallowing ruts in AF, and tons of deadfall.























We had to cross this twice. Yipee!

Putting in some miles. Is this a work trip, or just for fun?

Nice! Is the Forest Lake Trail finally open? Last I head the Forest Service still had it closed with boulders and signs at trail head and signage at the Tibble Fork kiosk?

No closed signs, but it's a mess. 3 foot deep trench up the middle for long stretches. I can't believe you 4x4 types drive up that stuff. I'll never do that in the Samurai.

Going back in a couple weeks, then everything should be open (single track), dry, and there won't be any controversy. 157 still had lots of snow on the north end, as did many high, north facing aspects.

We went to the top of 198 on Sunday. It was dry and in good condition all the way to the entrance to the single track.

A little help...FCR Fuel Screw O-Ring

Anyone know where I can get a couple replacement 2.5 ID 4.0 OD orings that go on the fuel screw on an FCR carb. Honda/Kawi/KTM/Yamaha only sell it with a new fuel screw and spring. The local hardware store had a small o-ring, but not small enough...

Any ideas?

Yosemite is one of my favorite places to camp/hike... how did you get a site or are you just rolling through?

Yeah, riding the beast takes it's toll. The August ride will be that, but it'll start at 7am and end at dark, for four days in a row. No casual mornings in the cafe sipping coffee and catching up on the internet world. Get up and ride. You'll get your ass handed to you, but it'll be fun, just ask Noah.
