did a ride up that way on Sun, it was marketed as a dual sport ride and did fit the bill, mostly dirt roads and a couple of trails. The guys knew where they were, I sure didnt.
Got a flat front where there had been a fold in the tube since mounting at the rim lock. Finally wore a hole thru it. Put on a patch and with help it got pinched going back together. So took the wheel off and put a new tube in and off we went.
The dust was REAL BAD. If only 2-3 it would have been tolerable, but we had 12 of us along. If it is wet the next time Im invited I would try it again, but I dont think I would other wise.

MikeinFresno-
Recognize the handle from another site. Nice area and in my "backyard". If you want another go with 2-3 riders let me know. There's lots after Hume that I have yet to really explore (south and east of there, just outside park boundaries).

I'm on a 2005 Husaberg 550; should keep up with KTM:D.

Cheers-

Tanner - this wasn't us was it? I am cornfused. I think this was a different ride, unless this was the guy that was Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay out front. I don't remember anyone pinch flatting.

Sounds like a fun ride (minus the flat).

Mike - I will have that exhaust tonight for sure. You want to pick it up for the weekend? Gimmie a holler - PM sent with phone #.

Hell no I'm not mad. Let's ride. I still need some minor work on the Berg, but have the XR and the big 1000cc sumo:D in the meantime.

I like single track with some difficulty, doesnt have to be gnarly, but not just dirt roads. Are you saying there is some of that up there?

Some but mostly FS roads. Some was doubletrack that's not seen four wheels fro a while. 80% is FS roads.
