Planning to get up there more this summer and ride the stuff you, Perry and Jungle rave about, even picked up a MT43 so I'll fit in with the cool kids

The trail is not that hard. I'm just old and fat!

Plastic oil-pump drive gears behind the clutch. 302 hours & 7300 miles. New ones arrived today. I'm tempted to order another set with hardware and take 'em to my machine-shop friend. Maybe we just need some custom metal gears.

Oh, I forgot to mention ... there is a downed tree across the trail near the top of Remington. Looked too big for 2 of us to move, so proceeded around the same direction as others. The hillside is REALLY SOFT right there. That tree needs to be cut before the side of the hill gets worse from the detour.

The weather was nice, and maybe a little too warm for winter!

Glad you guys have been enjoying the Remington trail. The only reason that trail is open to trail bikes is due to huge proactive efforts by Stewards of the Sequoia during travel management.

In case you were not aware Stewards of the Sequoia adopted Remington along with eighteen other trails in Sequoia and have performed maintenance on over 2100 miles of Sequoia trails to stop them from being closed since starting our Trail Appreciation Program in 2004.

Thanks for noting the downed tree. We will put it on the list and clear it just as we cleared over 2000 trees last spring.

I am off to do some more work in preparation to ensure motorized and all recreation interests are made a priority in Forest Planning

We're aware.....most everyone on this thread that rides the SNF is a donor to SOS... and we do our own trail maintenance and tree clearing sessions when we find downed ones.

Miss Maven it would be helpful to know who we are talking to when you speak on behalf of SOS since many here feel they are part of SOS.

That's an awfully cute LITTLE saw you got there Scott! Would not have helped us.

The tree Jim & I came across on Remington would have needed this SOS-recommended 21" saw minimum to cut it;


This was the 4th tree last year that was too big to move. I think its time to order one of these saws. Anyone figured out how to attache the scabbard to a fork leg? Photo maybe?
