Scotty's rock, awesome

As a fellow nova inhabitant formerly of colorado, I couldn't stop reading the RR. Great job. There was so much ground covered but I wanted to focus on Scotty's rock. You didn't call it that but I immediately recognized it. It is way steeper in real life for sure. The first time I climbed it was on a CR250 as well, albeit 1982 vintage. There used to be broken plastics and levers strewn at the bottom. Most of my riding buds wouldn't go near it, electing to take the trail to the right instead. It used to be impossible to ride a 125 up it as the approch was so deeply rutted ther was no chance to get momentum before hitting 100% traction on steep granite. The step at the top could cause problems as well for the less-than-equilibrated jockey.

Homesick for Rampart Range CO.

It was a fun rock indeed. I'd be willing to ride a 125cc MX'er up it on a bet next time I'm in CO

That's pretty wild, too

Looks like a good trip.

hey bp, i'm sure you can scale the rock on a yz80, i've seen your mx pics. i also see that you're in dc over the summer. lets get together for some singletrack. you can ride one of my rat-rides if your dr has better things to do. i'm assuming your cr is still in CO.

That would be great! You are right, the CR is in CO. I might have the DR with me in DC this summer, not completely sure on that yet.

Great pictures! Great scenery! You pick the best of each bike. That´s the best past of having 9 bikes I particulary enjoyed the off road part.

Glad you liked it, was a very fun trip. I do find that having several bikes for different purposes works well. Even old and inexpensive bikes work much better for their intended use than a fancy, newer, less specialized machine.
