Take some stills, spending too much already on limited data.

Nice work Mitch, I guess you couldn't bleep out the Lantana crash. I think you should put up a crash reel, sir.

LOL!!!! Well done, the beeps were the best part. I don't know how Mitch didn't lay on the ground and die laughing. I really was twisting my knee in that dang bush. I suck, but at least Jasen will be able to tell I am a Sailor.

Re: Oldtlsdoug and MitchnTX Take on Time 2 Ride near Walnut Springs

Just one more thing I need to say. Mitch is very patient, even when his riding buddy is saying bad things. Always go riding with Mitch, he ALWAYS has your back.

OK ... what do you need?


It appears one other DRZ rider will be joining us in the morning.

When do you guys plan to be there? Thinking about it....

Haven't ridden real dirt in ages...

If I brought the GS, are the trails too tight to ride it? Looks like there are some bypass routes for some of the tougher / tighter stuff.

The obvious choice is the WR. But would need to trailer it and to be honest, I'd like the challenge of riding the GS in some hard stuff if possible.

Meeting at Big Cup in Glen Rose at 0630

There are some pretty tight spots.
But they said they've had GSs out there before and were surprised.

And I'd like to eyeball and lay hands on the WR at some point ... cause you just never know ...

Ok. I may meet you. I'd have to leave at 5:30, but I've done it before. Are you eating breakfast? I assume Big Cup is a restaurant.

Likely on the GS if I come for this one. I have a trailer, but the tow vehicle is my wife's so I have to make plans to use it.

The Cup is at the corner of 67 and FM56
Quick bite to eat and then to T2R which opens at 0730.

Great news, Mitch, you hurt me. I don't need anything, I am packed up, ready to go.

450?

Saw this on their FB:

"T2R got 1 1/2” of rain last night! The trails will be perfect for the weekend. We’re expecting a big crowd this weekend, call John for information 214-808-8089."

Re: Oldtlsdoug and MitchnTX Take on Time 2 Ride near Walnut Springs

And the 1.5" of rain made some areas pretty daggum slick ...

I had two off bike excursions ... both mud related.

I didn't realize just how soft 10" of black gumbo mud was till I landed in it.

It was like a big pillow to soften your fall.

I've got a cool video of it, but it's only in my head.

Doug has all the ones we can share with others.

Had a good time, thx for the invitation.

Re: Oldtlsdoug and MitchnTX Take on Time 2 Ride near Walnut Springs

I got some pretty good video of Mitchntx and 2Wheelnut working to extract the XR650L from the pretty gumbo mud. More interesting is the video of me chasing the GS of 2Wheelnut through the place. That was a hoot. I had a blast. Even though they are clean, I will wash my white pants for next time. I got the goggles and jersey and gloves when I got back. So now Mitch can dress just like me. It will be like we are on the same team.....

Did you run your GS through there? How was it?

Doable on an Africa Twin?

Brought both the WR and the GS. I did a lap on the GS on the green trail.

It's doable on the AT but it's challenging.

It is pretty tight and be comfortable going through trees and tight turns. Mostly you just have to be smooth and remember it weighs 500 pounds. I almost over cooked a corner and went down in a slick spot because I forgot.

It was much more fun on the WR.
