I should have texted Chris, was a better day for riding than popping rounds at hot wells. Next time.

May turn out to be the best riding weather of 2016. Air was fairly dry

I had to add some oil to my ktm..it burns a little when I keep it pinned at 80 to 90 mph for a while... I also had a broken air screw..but, it didn't affect the performance much at higher speeds. The Little ktm did breath in the tight back roads. Not so great for slabbing though.

He meant the KTM did great in the tight turns. Now tell everyone how many free hotdogs we ate

That KTM jumps those cattle guards like a bause! Weather was like Bevo said, perfect. I'm not sure it can get any better. No traffic on Lime Creek, but the times I've gone there has never been much traffic. Most of them time we run it late afternoon on Saturday. We did however run into a large group of motorcyclists who had run it in-between the 2 times we ran it. I hope we have video of that one water crossing where it looked like I parted the Red--Sea.... Lol

I'm already planning the next trip. Probably a 2 day'er.

I've never seen a lot of traffic on Lime Creek. 1431 is a different story, though. Last time I was out there I got behind an RV caravan.

For brief moments in the hills it felt like I was in a different state..
Absolutely a blast .. yes I got so video..but videos from a action cam don't do justice..it's something you have to go experience in person.. this trip cost us less than $100 each...all inclusive.

Average speed was a little low. Was the honda slowing you down?

Of course it was. I could have used a tow from you. Maybe you'll make the next ride. Do you have a problem with cattle guards?

I think it was the Yamaha that was leading. The guy is a douchebag.

When we were riding you could watch us on google maps live. Basically a blue dot moving along a map. It displays out speeds as well. Which were, slow.
