W.S.T. (Whining Shirley Trail) Photos

Recommended Posts

:banghead: I had a wonderful time! This trail had it all, cliffs, switchbacks, views, hillclimbs, technical sections, roots, rocks, swinging bridges, cattle crossings, river crossings, everything! 🤣

There are long sections of trail that are on a big cliff with one foot of trail. One wrong move, and it's a long way down. Reminds me of Downieville. :banghead:

I'm beat! I hurt from my toes to the tip of the hair on my head. 🤣

I think I found my new favorite trail at Foresthill! 🤣

On to the pictures:

I took a total of 43 photo's. These are the best ones.

All in all it was a wonderful trip. Thanks Jay for the tip, I'm always happy to learn something on the trail. Jeff, you needed all 3 balls on that trail! :busted: Thanks Johny for showing us a great time.

Thanks for posting up the pics Scott. Good to see you and Geoff again, and to get out for some 2 wheeling with my sledding buddy Jay. I had a great time today. I'm glad you guys enjoyed it too. :banghead:

Post it up bob. Let's do it! :banghead:

:banghead: Now bob & curt,

You know I always incourage you guys to try anthing. I have utmost respect for your skills, but I think this one is just too tough. You're doing the smart thing!

Do not try this ride!

It will kick your ass. The Husky will not survive. :banghead: It's tighter & tougher than the Goat Trail. 🤣

My little KTM boiled over on the "easy" side of the canyon!

There are switchbacks upon switchbacks. Tight nasty turns upon turns, strewn with rocks & roots. No good lines at all. Just hang on and hope you make it! 🤣 curt, you're bikes gotta be able to tractor up at 2 mph. Don't do it! 🤣

I hear ya SuperRambo. The euro Wolf is tucked away in my air conditioned garage with my nana's afagan draped over it and this soon to be 51 year old newbie sits here in my sweats, T shirt and coffee, having no plans of taking on the Wild Stalion Trail.

congrats on making it. did you really over heat?

Unless naked chicks start hanging out in the staging area, cut down on the parking lot pics! That group looked like it shoulda been decked out in orange and pickin up trash! :banghead:

Thanks for the tour Johny. Definately one of my favorite rides now. Awesome views. It amazes me how you know all the names of all the peaks, valleys, ridges, canyons, and mines everywhere.

Had a blast. As far as action shots are concerned, we didn't want to scare the life out of anyone so kept it to a min. The trail is not for the faint of heart.

A helmet cam of the narrow on the side of a cliff section and the devil's staircase at speed would be sweet!

Hey, the mighty 351 can go ANYWHERE a capable rider could take it, it's even gotten me through some stuff I didn't think I could do. :banghead:

Oldedude,

You'd love this trail. That monster you ride would tractor right through this stuff.

I am glad you didn't post any of the nasty trail pics. This way it is a suprise to all of us who havn't ridden it yet... :banghead:

If I am going to get suckered into riding stuff I shouldn't be riding anyway I would much rather not see pictures of the hardest part before hand🤣

SLY if you hurt from your toes to your hair thats good enough for me :banghead:

Slyko only hurts from his toes to his hair because he was hiking up and down these huge mountains in MX gear to take all those great photos!

The ghost of Geoff here....

The ride was awesome until I died🤣 . Strange thing is it wasn't even riding. I saw Deadwood Cemetery and thought I'd take a look. What I saw there was so frightening that my heart exploded 🤣 If ever you chance your way into that neck of the woods, NEVER, and I MEAN EVER go into that cemetery! it is haunted by the most evil of all spirits!!!! Now me too🤣 .

Sorry you all had to die :banghead: too.

:busted: We did take a trek to that haunted cemetery - Deadwood.

Damn place gave me the creeps! :banghead:
