Just a quick reminder not to ride the trails when wet. I understand that sometimes you just want to ride but the damage requires a lot of work to fix. It will eventually dry out and be available everyday for our pleasure. Until then....get the skinny tires out or find some gravel roads.

I don't know... I got the skinny tires out like you said, but I think they just made deeper ruts in the trail than the fat tires. They did shed mud better than the knobbies though! Razz

Not funny! Some riders, of course none of ours, would do just that. Get the skinnies out for tire clearance and go hit the trails.

That was a different time and era. We hope to continue to educate riders to stay off the trails when conditions are wet. We know that those little ruts soon become rivers and lakes when the big rains come.

And you really have to ask the question, "Is riding in the mud fun anyway?" Anyone that has had to replace a drivetrain lately knows that the cost of replacement parts isn't fun!

There is a reason to own different kinds of bikes for different kinds of roads/trails.

Pappy is officially off his soap box now!
