    More crazy log rides in the Black Hills of SD

    Okay, this is a bad idea. 60' long Cottonwood tree fell over some years ago, all the bark peeled, the trunk in white, hard as a rock and slick. The very tall point is 10' to the ground, and the trunk is weirdly veined and pointy and odd at the highest point. Some clean up got done today, some traction chicken wire applied, most of the debris in the fall out zone is gone. Gulp. It must be ridden soon. Hope these pictures do it justice. Hope they work.....

    I agree about the whole no talent thing, but the picture appears to slope up, so I would guess it was close to 10 ft., maybe 8+?

    Hey Zach

    You left the Black Hills a little early. Me and a couple of buddies are in the process of developing at least 2 dedicated downhill trails. Obviously you were too lazy to find your own rocks to drop because we have no problem there just aren't too many trails yet.
    As for that log ride what the f*ck you think that there is only cross country around here and well there will be if you keep f*cking dissing there guys for trying to build stuff. I've seen a couple of your pics there impressive but throw in 10 trees around it then some mud and granite and you will have the BLack Hills in a little while.

    Hey sparrow where is that and where is the one you posted a while ago. I'll go ride them for ya.

    No Worries

    I just hate when people think that all of South Dakota is flat and the black hills are just easy cross country trails. We are working on some gnarly **** so hopefully when or if you come back you will be suprised.

    As for you gonzo thats low the rally sucks balls and I ain't from sturgis

    sanitized?

    gonzo, did you say 'sanitized trails and carpentry sucks' . Better tell some of the folks in the woods of the Pacific Northwest. I think they've used a nail and hatchet here and there.

    and lighten up, 'dank' I don't feel offended, neither should you. Now here is another log that is 700 feet long and sits almost 75 feet up in the air, and is only 2 inches wide. Over 400 people have died trying, but it has never been ridden.

    Rough Rider, drop me a line, we can do some riding sometime. We've got loads of stuff at St Martin's, M Hill, Bone Collector (by Johnson Siding) and some at Storm Mt. We've been doing plenty of group rides out of Rapid.

    Labor Day weekend is the Ridge Rider's big epic ride....

    50 miler or so of trail riding, "the Dakota Five-0" P.J. is the instigator of this one. I think they've got a website somewhere out there on the www, but I'll be darned if I know it......but it is a fine ride (some folks 'race' it, but not me) to check out. Pray for no forest fires while your gang is out here, really been dry.....

    I'm not trying to start any s*it, but that pic of the second log, there's no way that log is only two inches wide. I started laughing when I read that. Sorry, but it just looks like too big of a log to be only 2 inches wide, maybe 4. Cuz there's no way your feet are that narrow with them inside of shoes. Why is it that people feel the need to embellish the measurements of things on their trails??? It looks like a fun ride though Sparrow.

    Sorry to make you sound like a dork but it was a joke. Because people said he exagurated the hight of the first log he made a joke about the second one being huge. He wan't serious.

    rough rider, you don't make me sound like a dork. I do a good enough job of that myself. Sorry if I don't spend all of my time actually reading all of your posts thoroughly. Some of us actually get to RIDE during the winter and don't have time to read all of the s*it you guys talk to each other cuz you live in crappy winter states. I know I lived in So Dak. So thanks for calling me on it, it's actually pretty funny once I read the whole post, but don't you have something better to do than be negative to everyone on here?? And still my point is: everyone always is embellishing their trail measurements...why???
