Looks like fun!
Maybe in future years I'll be to host a larger DAMN ride outing. But the property doesn't belong to me and I'm being careful to stay on very good terms with the owners.
If you don't do that in next 7 months I consider you failed! :lol2:

In the meantime I'll keep working on trails. Some really easy for wife, kids, (and Ken). Others more challenging!

That's a very good idea. More riders just leads to more problems. Enjoy it.

Phil invited me back out when our scheduled time off actually aligned. His friend Adam also came out a little later in the day.



Starting the trail we cut last time I was out there:

And me having traction issues starting to go up the steep hill that is the exit of this trail:

At one point, my shifter lever decided to strip a little bit where it's knurled for the shaft. That meant when I downshifted, the lever just hit the frame instead of shifting. I got stuck in 3rd until I took it apart and added a washer to help it hold. That didn't last long, but at least I got stuck in 2nd for the rest of the day.

Nice. 2nd is all you really need.
Adam still on that 230.

I almost wish it was a 230. It would have to be lighter weight than the CRF250L. Thing is shockingly heavy.
He had trouble in a couple spots and it was wearing him out.


Good times though. Still working on more trails. Place is coming together
