Not the same Honda 4. The guy I met was British and not in the group at all. It was a beautiful bike :)

Guess I haven't met/ridden with Dao yet, hope to someday. Wish I could make the ride on the 14th, but I am out of town on work. Hopping to ride HF on Sunday...

Within first mile or so, main loop, left turn down one ledge, hard right, sandy, under the overhanging tree, up the ledge, hard left.

Who cut the tree and why? If a reasonable answer why wasn’t it taken down to the ground?

Hope folks aren’t just cutting up the trail to make things easier. That’s why Emma is fun; it’s challenging.

yea, i was hoping you were wrong, but yep, you're right... someone took a saw to that overhung branch...
That u turn with the overhung branch there forces you to set up your line just right in order to ride up the smooth ledge on right side.
If you didn't then you had to ride up sharp edges, no big deal, really.

furthermore, i just don't get it...

if a fat 690 can snake around that branch .. yes, that bike ...where KTM reduced the lock to lock turning aperture by about 10-20%...
shirley....a normal dirt bike should/could snake around that branch as well??

I'll ask around to find out why this got cut...assuming that it's a legit cut, and not some rambo who took it upon himself to cut it just for his own benefit.

Great day of riding yesterday. Lots of electric bikes (8 or 10) around.

--:eek2:... ? 8-10?

that's awesome to see all those riders (a gal too!) out there.
so what's the story w/ the silver ebike? is it home-made?
doesn't look like a surron w/ an aero set of panels bolted on:lol2:
