Overnight ride and camp

Recommended Posts

Anyone interested in going on an camp/ride before it gets too hot. I have a few guys at work that want to do it so I figured I would throw it out there.

Are you looking at loading gear on your bike and riding out? or camp/stage somewhere and ride? Curious minds want to know....

If I had a DS I would haul all my stuff on the bike and camp/ride. but since I dont I was thinking of finding a good riding area where you could camp also. Maybe do a whole weekend or just an overnight.

Yea, me too! Had fun last year but need to be with someone who's more familiar with the trails than me.

Was he using a paddle tire on that climb? It didn't look like it? It looks like that dirt would eat up a paddle tire easy? 450 or 250?

Yes on the paddle. Very little dirt up there...it's all cinders and it eats the shit out of a paddle tire. 250 :p ...he goes up it in 3rd gear all the way on my 450. :moon::ride: The key is to carry your speed through the whoops and then know when to shift........or at least have the ponies and cajones to go up it. Pretty sure hi_im_sean took my bike up it.

my drz400 with rs-3 and the 39mm pumper and proper gearing would not make it, started in 3rd was down to 1rst and had to turn around a little after half way. i took exmlb's 450r all the way up in 3rd, front wheel was coming up at the top

I was at the Dunes last month at comp hill and was pulling a wheelie up it on the last 1/4 of the hill in 3rd gear. Fun stuff! Cinders and the surrounding trails sounds fun but I don't know about waisting a paddle tire?

I know the peaks loop! Last time we did a camp ride on that we started with 12 riders and 3 finished.

I have the loop we did on my GPS. CTR has a copy on their web site too.

I was a finisher. Most bailed out due to rainy cold weather. Sad part is right after they broke off the sun came out and the rest of the ride was awesome. Ken bailed out with a dented pipe on the 2t. Another guy bailed out early in with jetting issues making the bike hard to ride in the technical ST.
