Initial plan was to head up from the old forest road p-lot at Canoncito and meander up to 10k BWO Canoncito, Tree Spring, and finally OSO Corridor. We made up at far as OSO and time became an issus. We climbed, we descended...and of course, we played:thumbsup: Ran into Alex Morgan, an legend around these parts. He said that he went as far as 10k/ski area and wished he had stopped back at the forest boundary. Trail is good to that point, but beyond is still very sloppy. Anyway, that be the story. Now go ride!


Starting with just a little climb up Canoncito:p





and climbed








We played...









But thing just weren't the same without RCC, Jo Busta, and Rickmeister. I think we all
sensed it in Knob and afjoey



Luckily we had a pinch hitter. And he fit the bill nicely!



We played some more!
...and a few strategically place rocks and deadfall netted this little gem:D







...and "the man without a face (drum roll, please).......our very own Dropin%Dug:thumbsup:






A little scenery..









We descended.














Great ride fellas, and much respect Doug!:cool:

First out and back i've ever done that was truly UPHILL both ways!! Still a great time, though. Props to doug and brian for keeping us humble.

And I thought Bruce WAS a tranny...:confused:

Thanks guys, but like Supra, I'm still a Bandolero in training. I've got more Huevos than skill at this point.

Sure wish I wore the leg armour after that second attempt. Did you guys hit it again on the way back???

Fun time guys building the stunts and riding. I definitely got a workout. Let's do it again!!!

Oh...and I don't think Bruce is a tranny, but he does have log roll written all over him...;)

Hittin' the dirt....

That's too funny Bry...looking at the pictures you can see on both of ours first jumps we had lower entry speed but we had the front wheel straight...we were tentative but cautious and maintained form.

Then on the second attempt, we got over confident. We both carried higher speed and we both chocked the front wheel. You had a bobble that you gracefully recovered...and me, well just jump up, dust yourself off.....AND DO IT AGAIN!!! :thumbsup:

Kind of had to be there to know the degree of difficulty but every dog has his day (got lucky).

What jump? :confused: You must be thinking of someone else

EDIT:
:lol: I see what you mean now :lol:

The line I picked was the harder line, check out Bryan and this was the same line I did (just no other camera out).

:lol: Its all good Bryan I know Doug is fooling around. When it comes to "bike" training have tons to learn still. I would love more practice this season on AM/FR as well so trying to build a suitable bike for that. Every time I ride I learn something new so can not wait to get back out on the trails.

Now as far as Bandolero training, got that sh-- down bro :thumbsup:
