Yes, get one at Bill's Place $30 if he for some reason doesn't have them it's only a $5 ticket if you get one at all.
Expect everything from fire road to the top easy to "we're going up that? Oh shit" trails. great place for a practice day getting used to the bike to let's see what this thing can do now.
9.1 miles from Sand Canyon off the 14, 20min. or so.
See map below.
See you Fri.
Your welcome,

Ride Report May 11, 2012

clouds burning off



man and machine



i get there a little early to beat the heat.
i knew TuffEnuff was going to show up later so i just rode the lower trails in view of Staging area 1.

after riding Scorpion's 990 the weekend/week prior, it took a few minutes to get used to the mighty 525.

Rattle snake chillin in the sun



then TuffEnuff showed up



TuffEnuff



Tuffy on Silver King




Tuffy on Flat




look at this guy. he rules.



Rowher




Tuffy on Buffer Loop



tearin it up




the authorities showed up to do a sobriety test on Tuffy and i, we were gone so fast.....



(totally kidding, the Forest Service person had some VIP guests and they needed a pee pee break. not on my bike.


Tuffy has an oops moment when he thought his kickstand was down.





we were just talking about quads and our distaste for them and on the first trail after our break we run into this...



[honk honk] "get outta the way"



look at that stance




yup, let's go ride THAT!





nature break







Break




look what the cat dragged in!?!?!








nothing changes...





Jamin_Mathis on his Honda 600




action shot on Buffer Loop



TuffEnuff



TrplBiscuit











Jamin_Mathis chasing TrplBiscuit











Jamin_Mathis rippin











Jamin riding TripBiscuit's mighty DR200







on my way home i stopped off at In N' Out for a delicious Grilled Cheese Animal Style. yummm!






thank you to Tuff Enuff for riding around Rowher with me!

and it was great to see Jamin after being MIA.


and i FINALLY got to ride with TrplBiscuit. get dirty!
