    What kind of tires are you running? It makes a huge difference you know.

    And what's this powerline trail I hear everyone talk about? Sounds pretty cool, is it off of Green Slick?

    It's the trail being policed by the new PAS "mountain bike dog patrol". Don't get caught on this trail when it's wet.......OR ELSE!

    Hey guys, this really isn't the type of thing that you should joke around about. Can you all please try and be a little more serious?

    Wow I can't believe you post on here and post that you rode at Bentcreek today:thumbsup: So ahh sidehill was muddy?? You got big brass balls Harryonaspot as most of the pa-trollers of this forum would usually like to form a lynch party and round up all riders of wet/muddy trails. Not that any of them have the balls to do so !

    Hey Motobutane
    The trails were fine. If they were muddy we wouldn't have ridden. We covered the whole place and didn't need to wash the bikes after. So chill the **** out!

    OK......whatever. I'm riding today at 12:45 in BC. Rice-P parking lot to where-ever for 2 hours. Not fast, not slow......just fun. I'll be the one with the stupid grin on my face saying hello to every one I meet weather you like it or not. It really is all about the ride.......:thumbsup:

    Everyone back away from the keyboard and go ride or wrench on your bike.

    Typical MTBr Mod smack - always jumping in when the excitement has quelled.

    :yawn:

    Aren't you over-due for a WNC trip? I know gas/lodging are not part of the volunteer budget, but there's probably someone who'd let you sleep in their basement.

    Way overdue for a WNC trip!!!

    If all this wet weather would stop ( i do have a nice set of prototype maxxis mud tires to test) I'll get the HSV group to head that way. Unless the basement offer comes with a microwavable breakfast in a bag I'll be at the Hampton. ;)

    You used the "T-Word"!!! Prototype? I think a hormone just kicked in.

    :yikes:

    Due to religious issues, pancakes are only on Sunday.

    Did 2+ hours of riding in BC this evening. Wolf Creek, Deer Lake (Powerline), Ingles Connector/Ingles, Green's Lick, Explorer Connector/Explorer, Pine Tree, Hard Times Connector all very dry except for the usual spots. Lower Sidehill Connector was a little soft.

    Water crossings are deeper than normal, as would be expected.

    Damn.. somebody needs to make me some pancakes!

    I'm pretty sure Moto has a new stick, he cut it on Corn-hole Shoals the other day.:thumbsup:

    Jay, can't make it that weekend. Going camping down at Oak Mtn with the family. My oldest has some proto Maxxis 24" MTB tires to test.


    I also need to get my fork to Mike at SEX for a mod.
