I'm all for innovation and creativity but I'm not sure about this one:

I wonder how much that tire weighs.

For the opposite days, 646, Devil's Slide, Noddle/Logjumper is a nice workout. Give the XR650 her legs. There is a brand new trail, Skeleton, that sounds LUSCIOUS. 100% singletrack. Tight and twisty, hours to go a mile. Might not be ideal for the Nuclear Thunderpig.
Schooled Scotty's last night. Nice lesson on momentum. Actually, going down was more scary than going up for me.

Drove to my parents house after work, rode from my parents house up Jackson Creek, changed a spark plug on a 300EXC at the gate, did 681 Scotty's, did part of 679 Dutch Fred down to old Jackson Creek/Dakan road and then back up to 679.A, crossed Rampart Range Road onto 675 Cabin Ridge, did 653 Roi Tan, had to hand-haul the bikes over a fallen tree on Roi Tan, then back on 674 Flatrock and 673 Bar back to Rampart Range Road at Flat Rocks campground, crossed the road onto 682 Overlook (fun downhill rock slab), then 683 Fern (fun little uphill rock climb), finished on 646 Arrowhead back to Jackson Creek.

4 KTMs (250, 2x300, 530), 3 Yamahas (250, 450, 650). Good stuff.

I'll see if my dad caught a picture of Scotty's on his iphone.

Need to check out that new Skeleton trail.

Oh yeah -

^Trying to squeeze all your fun in before parenthood starts?

FWIW you'll get your life back in about 8-10 years; worse if you keep reproducing.....

slight correction. #2 is squared, not double.

It looks like my laptop is getting used, great. Have you ridden it with the O2 sensor?
