I'm thinking about a slow ride party at my place in August. I need to make some more advanced obstacles first.

Can I watch you test out the advanced sections?

I'm making them for guys like you - maybe I should say everyone but me! :lol2:

But just being there is motivation to get good enough to ride them. :thumbup:

Is there any mechanical alternative to walking along with a chainsaw when trying to establish a single track? I'm dealing with this wierd broad leaf stuff that covers the woods at about 2 feet thick. Its easy to ride trhough but it hides all the fallen logs that lurk beneath. this is keeping me from establishing a goat trail by freeriding the bike.

The fallen trees are too big to drive over with my little tracker. :dirtdog:

bushog and backhoe have been pretty good to re-establish the jeep roads back there but I made some pretty good ruts today. I think the area is still woods because it is swampy soil.

It is weird because it looks like you can find a path between all the trees and see pretty far ahead but the vegetation is up to your handlebars in some places. It gives no resistance to riding through but you are totally blind to all the fallen trees on the floor.

I was thinking of this machine but I have read that they have no power and there are only 2wd:

I borrowed this off a buddy and it worked quite well. At times it was like freestyle riding through the woods in slow motion. Best part was the airconditioning blowing full blast

I'm around for the next five days if anyone wants to slowride, look what awaits you at the end of the rainbow :lol2:
