Went to Middle Creek on Saturday to meet Monty, Howard & Mike - I woke up Sat. morning looked out my window and decided NOT to take the bike. Figured I'd go hang out and let my dog run her self into the ground.

Here's the conditions they rode in:

What trails did you end up riding? That picture was taken at about 3400 ft per GPS - what was the top like? Did you go up Sled Ridge or the road to the top?

Man, middlecreek is my all-time favorite...
How long do they expect it to be snowed in?
How much snow was on the trails?
Did you ride 38?
Have you checked out that new piece of 37/25 yet?

Man, I guess I need to suck it up. I have been using my California origin to not ride here in Pa due to the cold :). You guys go out a rip it up!

Of course, I have been taking some ribbing from sbohanon and mike68. I think they are related to Nanuck from the north :D

Where the hell are those tire studs........

Mike 68, you are right what a blast!!!
That was my first trip riding in snow like that what a hoot. Big broadslides and monster roost was the order for the day. Man is thet snow soft to land on not that i landed on any :) Bill, you get to ride on that stuff everyday you are truly fortunate, brother. Hopefully Silicon Mike will post some of his pics for all to see.

Frosted, Huge

I have roosted 500 miles this winter in the frozen woods of NH. I am glad to hear you went out. It is a lot of fun. I am on a new 426 and crashed it every ride but 1. Crashing in the snow is less damaging than the dirt and rocks. My bike still looks new, but the snow is going guick. I am looking forward to seeing some more pics on the ride.
