Got excited, but this is not human powered riding. :-)

Yeah, haven't dusted the mtb off yet this year. Need to soon.

This may work

Damn - that would be fun but it's a haul to get down there from the Northside on a weekday....

Jacket 06-18-2013 03:47 PM

I'm going to try to make this happen. I haven't been down to Rampart in years.

Sweet! I think I have a loop worked out that's loads of fun...we did it last year and I happened to write it down!

In. I'll chill or MTB or 4x4 and my friend Jason will ride with y'all. He got his OHV sticker today (actually just a receipt)

Had a great ride last night! Me (250 XCF-W), my dad (530 EXC-R), Jacket (450 EXC) and Daniel's friend Jason (Husaberg FE570) enjoyed the late light of the summer solstice and endured the dry, dusty conditions of Rampart. Went a little less than 30 miles in about 2 1/2 hours. Thanks all for coming down!

I adjusted my clickers to the "comfort" setting from the "standard" setting as per the manual (meaning I reduced the compression and rebound damping both), and wow what a difference! Feels like a whole different bike! It was great! Definitely going to play with that more depending on riding conditions!
