I have found MANY Stoddard, JV, and SBNF tracks at gpsexchange. Even a few by those who frequent this thread.

And after Christmas, I plan to ride the FUN parts of every one of them!


Catfish ...

All it takes is one asswipe to "hike the track" instead of riding it. Be very careful when following free tracks. I only get them from trusted sources.

Most of the time I just use my pointer when using the GPS. I'm still more of a dead reckoning, point of reference and landmark type of guy.

I have made a few routes and tracks on my Base Camp program but rarely follow them. The most use my GPS gets is finding gas stations.

Hey that tire has a couple more rides on it, I think a cactus was the culprit. I sure am sick of looking up at that dam 250 of Scott's on top of the hills looking down at me fail.

Arg Arg Arg... you so funny...

Yes I have ridden them... don't like em much... but I do buy 5 or 6 every year from Cycle Smiths and donate them to Chris at Stewards to be given away in their annual raffle to you guys. I am buying trails tire offsets you see... LOL

Yeah I haven't been riding nearly as much as I would like since moving home and business out here last year... BUT got a full week in Ocotilllo next week... and the new year looks to be good for me to get back on the bike a lot more.

But I still have a lot more miles on my bikes than most posers.

Anyway... thanks again for the pics... helps us guys stuck on the computer enjoy the day. Funny, you must not be riding either... since we both have exactly 559 posts as of today. And I have been here 3 years LONGER than you. Maybe I should be posting pictures for you !

I heard a funny line recently- "See you at the Bottom" Yep next time I'll sign my name on your back fender with a marks-a-lot.

12-15? You need to quit that day job! They must be quality rides 'cause you were barking at my fender but then again, I am a noob squid.
What are you doin new years wkend excndez? Think I'll hit up the KOA for Sat and Sunday, everyone else is 'fraid of wet dirt.

Just funnin ya Jungle 10-15 times a year is about right and don't get me started on suspension set up.

Next time I won't have my boy along and we can just keep "exploring" those cow tracks we were following. He is a very good rider but doesn't like that particular stuff.

New years I hope to doing a day trip to Mojave.

I'm not afraid of wet dirt, it's the 12 inches of snow on top of that dirt.

1 thing different between us is that we ride and POST PICS of US RIDING

i cannot recall any pics of him riding though


BUTTTTT , i was just busting his balls

some peeps like trials tire and others dont the ones that dont use them always think we have flats and that they need to be replaced when they get wore down!!

thanks for the donations to the SOS jeff! without them (SOS) most of the stuff we ride would have been closed off by now!

i guess we are lucky that our wives let us ride as often as we do which has been 4-6 days a month as of latley

see u guys new years weekend-is that before or after the new year jungle!???

Well since you asked... I've always thought you were someone to be admired... do more than say... ride better than most... give when something worth while crossed your path.... and back it all up with a smart ass sense of humor in proper doses.

So what was your point ?

My point? I don't have one just about like 99.99% of all this garble on the internet.

I come here to read some funny shiatt and unwind from the real world. I'm never let down BTW. I can't remember the last time I had to go to the ER after an internet ass whoopin" lol

We need to get together and ride Jeff it's been a while. Probably leave that nasty goat out though.

4-6 days per month is for pussies ! I ride almost that much now and I am apologizing for it...

You pick up your life and business and move out here totally off grid to an old horse ranch, build a warehouse... remodel an old house... 3 out of state funerals... time with out of state Dad with the big C... all in 14 months and see how much time you have for picture posting. Just getting on the bike has been a challenge.

Anyway... shin kicking aside... I expect a great year of riding in 2013.. have some fun plans coming for this old horse ranch converted to dirt bike ranch for me and my friends... hopefully you'll come join us for some riding AND after riding fun !
