I have a clue, but no idea about the road and I'll by a vowel...Besides, THAT is a terrible twisty road that would be terrible for a new set of tires....

Re: Hey ... Mosquito ridge open yet ?

I like this…. Motorhead asked the question for a ride plan last Sunday and everyone chimes in today…a short bus is missing a few somewhere

Well I guess some sort of ride report would be nice. At the last minute I joined Halzee and Motorhead on a little tire-buffing journey. Started off in Granite Bay (Thanks Uncle Mark for the shoe changes!) and made our way up to Forest Hill for lunch. Dropped down Mosquito ridge ( F*ck those tar snakes were a be’och!) a bit and then off on some no name (at least to me) roads. All I knew is I liked the nice parts which were most of the way and Motorhead kept us going in the right direction with the “stay to the right at the split” at almost every intersection. Ended up on Wentworth Springs Road back out to Georgetown then on home. All in all it was a great time on some roads that I would never have found if not for Motorhead. And almost no cage traffic!!!!

Mental note to self: Even with the Ohlins tight, you can still bottom out the beast!!! HARD!

Funny, I ran it on my Harley last week and never had a problem. Of course, I did not hit the pot holes
