Be advised, you do need to obtain permits in advance before crossing El Camino Del Diablo. The Barry Goldwater range requires watching a movie and signing a stack of hold harmless forms.

Not only is the road impassible when wet, they may close sections. There is a section that crosses a dry lake bed, which would be a problem if it is not dry.

I need to do a little research. I want to have time to do a little exploring along the way. It's for sure an overnighter.

First I have to do something about my 650s oil consumption.

I want a cool hat like Terry's.

Did the Crown King ride yesterday...

First time working on Travis's bike. (Stuck carb float)

Second time working on Travis's bike. (Snagged throttle cable)

Thumbs up while soaking wet...

Snow is getting deeper...



Snow is really coming down now...


At this point we cried uncle and turned around. We were soaking wet and the trail was getting covered. Goggles were useless and we couldn't see the rock, ditches or ruts in the trail anymore. Great ride though!

That looks like a fantastic ride!

Anyone want to go out for a ride tomorrow? I have off and don't want to spend it sleeping on the couch.

EZ300 IS the ride to crown king big bike friendly? I rode 4peaks on sunday it was like riding in la traffic no fun too many people out there but was worth it to see the mtn covered in snow. I have been wanting to do the crown king ride for a while just dont know if it is F800 friendly or YZF friendly looks like a fun ride

CK backway

Since they graded most of the rough stuff out it is big bike friendly and is a B route.

Is anybody a Bridgestone tire fan? I have a brand new set of the medium-hard terrain tires M603 & M604 that I'm not going to use. $110 for the set. I also have used M403 and M404 tires if anybody wants those to try. I didn't like them, but I'm picky like that.

Size

What are the sizes? I will take first dibs if they are the right sizes I need. I can't tell a good tire from a bad one....
