Hey Christian! I am planning a soft ride in early june and want to head up long run and down rough run. Do you see any problems with gates at that time?

All - I am taking two non-adv'rs. One on a vstrom and one on a klr. Ya'll are welcome to come, but like I said, it'll be pretty soft. You might get bored.

Thoughts on somewhere out by Skidmore Fork/Switzer Dam / Rt33 anyone? PSUCanary may know

I haven't seen anything of that particular style at any of these latter places so I suspect based on your prior logic that your first conclusion is most likely although "within a certain distance" indicates a region not a distance.

My CSI skills suck though :P
Is that a typo or have you really found that moss grows on the south side of objects in the northern hemisphere north of the tropics?

Hey, I wouldn't get bored if I took my street bike hauling a trailer with my dirt bike in it.

That stretch is open year-round, Dave. You should have no problems unless something happens between now and then that makes them think it should be closed, and they'll be forthright with the reason. Although I wish they'd make the closings motorcycle passable becuase in the majority of cases we can get through where a larger vehicle wouldn't, and we should have judgement sufficient to recognize what we can navigate and what we can't, and be willing to accept the responsibility of the consequences ourselves without passing any blame onto anyone else.

I hope that's not a recent picture because there's no snow here yet and we're what, 50 miles up the road?

I don't mean to complain but I'm looking forward to finding a way to spend winters at the equator.

Huh! That's the first I've ever seen a set of ape hangers on a snow blower. Did Skippi build that for you?

That is not a typo, it's a brain fart. Had my sides mixed up. North side would be more damp, hence the growth. Looks like I need to brush up on my biology
