Viburnam Back To Lesterville
On different Trails Than Yesterday
We had a really nice
breakfast at the in house restaurante---I mean restuarant
Buzzez hit the starter
button on his XT and
Rut--Row !!!! ????
We rode for a bit in some sand flats where the sand was very wet---but solid.
OK --My favorite Picture--well maybe.
Staring at this picturejust makes
me want to quit
This is where the 520 really shined.
This is the finest dirtbike I
I'm not going to pig this bike
out like some of my other
We made a pact before we left the
We road a lot of single
track this day--more than I've ridden in a long time.
So much of it was spent in 1st and 2nd gear--with an occasional 3rd
and my bike is geared down already.
Buzzez is having a ball !!!
It was hear that I thought Buzzez
After a long cool down the clutch
Part of the trail we had to ride right
down the creek for quite a ways.
For a minute I wondered where the trail went---we were right in it !!
GasPipe and the Husqvarna were
now pretty well aquainted.
I think GasPipe at first cussed me for me talking him
into bringing the Husky instead of his XR650R,
as he had ask me what bike would be
right for this ride.
I think he finally realized that the light Husky was
just right for this ride.
This hill was straight up with not much of a run.
I just clicked it into 2nd and hammered it at the bottom
and let off the throttle as soon as it started moving
and let my momentum carry me over the top.
WhaaaPPPppppp--and it was over.
For Buzzez it was different technic.
As his bike was geared so low he
The trail eased up quite a bit
The weather was great--tho very
The 3 of us made a very good team
The next few pictures are Cooks Spring
We had ridden all different trails back to Sutton's Bluff
Once there we took off again on
totally different trails than
The first picture is the same hill that
was the first hill on our ride yesterday.
A little easier going down--the leaves and rocks were so loose and
it was so steep---I went down with a dead engine.
This picture is the best picture
showing the nastiness
However it is 5 times taller than
what you see and just keeps
The ride is about over
Once again we cross the beautiful Black River just Southwest of Lesterville.
Man were we hungry---but my regular cafe
had closed at 2PM.
Just down the road in Lesterville we struck gold.
Not only did they have ice cream--they had food--good ole' American hamburgers.
God it was good--- with big thick strawberry shake and homemade french fries..
We gobbled down our food and between swallows
shared the good times of the ride.
Me and Gaspipe sure enjoyed Buzzes company--he never gave up--and when I thought his
clutch had went South--he just wasn't ready to quit.
So other than a flat tire, a loose battery cable and a hot clutch---no bike problems.
Thanks so much GasPipe and Buzzez
