Just shy of 45 miles.



Up and down indeed.

As usual, nice report and pictures Terry. What a great ride. I have not done that much climbing in a long time. Some day I will figure out how to ride that single track fast like you two. I am glad it was only the 3 of us. If we would have had to many more we would not have been able to keep up the pace we had.
Good times guys. Thanks.

I was sporting a brand new Pirelli trials tire on this ride. My initial thoughts were, boy this tire is way bigger in diameter than my old Michelin trials tire and it's so much, much stiffer. I found out why it felt so much stiffer when I borrowed Goner's tire pressure gauge and found I still had a bead popping 50 psi in it!!! It works much better at 10 psi.

Nightstalker, great pics Looks like some very nice singletrack out there. How do you like the crf for dualsporting, looks like it does great single 'trackin.

I completely agree. That was tiring; I need a nap now.

The CRF is an OK dual sport bike. Just stay off long stretches of blacktop or super easy dirt roads.

Good stuff. Wish I could make some of these runs but my weekends are booked. Enjoy the Sycamore singletrack!

I felt pretty cool while riding "singletrack" today here in OK, then Terry goes and posts this...

I'd need panniers for all my diapers.
