Good ride. I ducked off to head back home right away, I thought something was wrong with my tire, but it actually was fine. I just need to get used to this tire I guess... Or it sucks.

This is how the day ended:



And this is how it got that way.



EXTREME POWER BOX OFF ROAD DUAL SPORT CHALLENGE



I was on the right side of the gate, this guy was trespassing however.

There were some colors





... And then a few of us broke off and got ourselves into some muddy trouble, but I don't have any pics of that stuff.

Looks like you all had a good ride. I was the guy going the other way in the orange coat.

Hahaha, figures.

A lot of the gates up there are unlocked right now. Some neat riding.

Great ride! And great job Matizzle and miah66 on keeping it upright, with the tires you had, in the few sloppy sections we hit. The weather actually turned out not bad at all, even though this pic looks a little bit ominous.

Fun.

Thanks! I had a great time out there. Learned a lot of new skills.

Still not sure how I made it through that mud
At one point I lost both feet and the clutch and my balls we resting on the tank. It must have been my balls that kept the bike up!

Here are a few of my picts. No action shots, I was too busy holding on.

Thumb Thx

Thanks to WD-PDX and matloik for organizing the ride and navigating and for taking pics, it was a cool ride. Glad the weather held out (for the most part)! When I left the house this morning, there was a huge mud spot in my driveway from where I hosed the bike off yesterday evening! The overspray even left mud spots on the side of my house! Need to be more careful w/ that...

Thanks for the pics mattizle.

Now that explains why I have such a difficult time keeping my bike upright - I'm missing important parts.

Looks like you guys had a good time, thanks for taking the time to snap a few pictures and share them with the rest of us.

Definitely. Found some great, fast fire roads.

Those water-bar erosion control things sure are a bitch though. I saw Erik's rear tire 3ft+ off the ground at one point. I suppose if I had enough power to lift the front end those things would be a different affair...

It was fun chasing matloik and Erik around... It was like I was riding with Hugo, except it only took 5 minutes to catch up instead of 10.

The ride wore me out. Here are my pics:







No need to obscure license numbers!

+1 on good chase games!
