Here's West Texas newest trail... It has no jumps, no hucks, no burms... just one big ass rut and a bunch of fvcked up blown out off camber corners. Anyone is free to ride it... the more you skid and blow it out the better. Brake bumps are soon to come.

Is that the access road to the right (1st pic)? Looks like a m-fer to push up. My calves are burning just looking at it. Looks, potentially, like a fun run.

Your right about the rain. It's getting too dry here in Norcal to build also....almost.

hey Marky!!

Is that the track meet line you practice sprints on? You mentioned you were going to run your moto through it to burn it in. Give me a call and we'll go dig some of it up. You know I wanted to blow some of those berms out anyway to make it more fun and pinned. Give me a call today.

To be honest that looks pretty fun as it is now if that rut is straight down the center with some area on the outside of the turns. Hop the rut, land and make the turn and have to hop over again to line up for the next turn. Bet it would get your cornering a little more honed.

These ruts are hard. If you ride down you're staying in them, there aint no other way. They may look easy since there's a motocycle riding up them, but they're not, In fact I couldn't even come close to riding that motorcycle up them... and I own it! I had to get ex supercross pro Gary "I've spent more time in the air than you've been alive" Sailers to do the job.

Here's another shot of Gary on one of the small jumps left over since the city plowed the place 3 years ago.
