Exploring

Rick and I went on a little scouting ride last night up in Grand Forks. We went along the Red River on the ND and MN sides. We found some really nice four wheeler trails on the point in EGF that were a lot of fun. Only about a mile of the river bank, but there were at least two or three different off shoots that we didn't explore yet. Hopefully the snowmobiles will be back in there once the snow flies and they will be just as good in the winter. Speaking of winter it had to be at or below 20F along the river last night. The weather channel said it was 23, but it was definitely colder than that when we were riding. My hands got numb at one point. Fun stuff. I'm still waiting for a couple parts to show up before the Pugs is all upgraded. Hopefully this week sometime. The new fork worked great on the river trails and in town. It will be interesting to see how it handles all loaded up for winter though. That's all for now. Here's a few pictures.

Rick in his man cave making room for his new winter bike. I can't wait to see it. It's gonna be a looker.

This picture turned out kind of dark, but I like it. If you look closely under the bridge you can see Rick on the trail.

This one is on the four wheeler trails we found. My camera died while taking it, and there is a weird leaf shape just above and to the left of the trail. Strange.

No rub at all. And I did a couple pretty good jumps on it.

A ghost just in time for Halloween :)

You ever take that Pugs off any sweet jumps?

Simmons said...

Charlie - Good to hear you are in. I think I might register even if I'm not sure I can get work off. I'll just have to get sick in February :) Full on conditions indeed! Let's hope to break the state record for cold and snow this year. Minus 60 with 3-4 feet of snow on the trail would be just right :)

Brian - Any jumps I can find I try and jump. It's not like I can hurt those wheels, and if the frame breaks, I can get one of those ti fatback frames :)
