It sucks for the skiers and snowboarders, but this warm winter has made some of the best trail riding conditions ever. Spent yesterday at the local spot, which is just big enough for me to get lost, find a new trail, and discover something weird every time I ride here. Yesterday's weird find was this Lawnmower Cemetery. These six dead mowers were parked in a row next to the trail, miles from any road. An outdoor museum of small engine workhorses perhaps?

A bit of brush on the trail, and a few puddles...

Got a little damp on that one! Had to make sure the puddle depth was sub-airbox. 8)

This is always so true.

I can lift it up with tremendous energy, but I usually climax too soon and it goes back down. Then I have trouble getting it up again for awhile. :oops:

That is the TE250. He also has the SM510 and a SMR450 race bike. Dude loves him some Husky.

Welp, entered my first timekeeper enduro on Sunday and got my ass severely kicked. It rained about four inches in two days and the course was a swamp! Never ridden in more challenging conditions. Quite a few sections were incredibly slow and a few were unrideable to most of us; in one spot I ended up stopping to help several guys drag their bikes through a mud pit because they were blocking the course.. :x

All in all, a super fun and well organized event- timekeeping is rather complicated when you're soaked, bleeding and physically destroyed! The best riders were simply amazing to watch, hammering out the long course. Dougfir's 300 two smoker was the weapon of choice out there, my thumper was feeling a bit bulky! Probably should pull the turn signals off... :roll:
