I tried and failed this afternoon...

They have renewed the berm since last time I was here and bottomed out on my belly pan. Was kind of tough getting a running start with all the brush piles in front of the berm and how slick the berm was after the rains.
This was as close as I got:


Y'all must know a different way in... or are braver than I was trying it solo.



Here is a pic I took at the redlight (after failing) of the Yellow Montezuma's Revenge...


Anyone else want to try?

Figured that but didn't see any tracks after the rain, so wasn't sure. There was pretty heavy traffic through there for a Sunday night and I tried twice and the second time I almost dumped it going over, so I rolled back and gave up since no one knew where I was if I wrecked or got hurt... Maybe someone with better skills will go get it soon...

no berm at the other end of the trail. just a curb, or what's left of it.

At the end of Laurel Street, under the Waterworks Curve? Last time I was down there, there they had 8 foot chainlink fence and concrete median barriers stacked up where I couldn't walk in, much less ride in... Maybe someone will go get it soon and keep the game moving.

I think you should get credit for it, you made the ride to the correct place but just couldn't get all the way in. Place a new one and get it moving again.

D'oh! My bad then BWs. I didn't go to the street this time, just glanced that way while in a power slide getting out of the trail. (not that the KLR does that very often, it was raining and muddy)
Last time I was there it was clear and you could ride in.

I just happened to take a new tag pic last night in case y'all wanted to move on!

So if that is okay with everyone, here is the new tag:

I passed it twice Sunday. I actually forgot it was the current tag location.

I finally got around to going for the tag, can't believe it lasted this long. Bridgepointe subdivision on North Shore Parkway.
