    It was definitely a treat! They were cautious but not freaked out by me. They’ve been up there for weeks...up Maxwell rd. I’ve seen their tracks, and finally got to see them!
    Not sure where they belong, but the longhorn watches over the smallest Bison, it’s pretty cool

    I assume the region where you saw them is "Open range"?

    Work wise or ride wise?

    Regardless... you make that Hightower look good!
    JoeMac and I did a race up north a couple of years ago and every bike ended up like that. We were carrying our bikes around the course. I finally broke my RD cable and was never so happy!

    Open range? It’s ANF would that be open range?
    GE needs lots of cleanup work :(

    Thought about heading out to B* but decided to just roll from home and get in my B* numbers without driving.

    same ride through the neighborhood as the last 2 Thursday’s...however I keep adding on.

    this time added in an extra climb up Scout/EastRidge/Big Red at Peters Canyon, then the Puma Loop at IRP before climbing up Chutes before heading home.

    days are getting longer.

    Those exotics would not simply be roaming wild out there. They belong to somebody. The question is, are they roaming where they are allowed to be roaming or did they escape?

    I am in. Do we want to start at Sandberg or Sara do you start at 7N23 fire road off of the top of Pine Canyon Rd, where you would start for Burnt Peak? I am back on SS. I have stripped my Ripley apart because it was making noises that drove me crazy.

    3 SC is now 2 SC.
    The clearance (and the steel... :inlove:) was the biggest deciding factor. If the need arises, I can throw 2.2" mountain tires on the front and back. I'm sure I'll experiment at some point, but I've been pleasantly surprised with the 45s. They roll fast on the pavement, and haven't killed me on single track. The workout potential with this ride is crazy...

    I can’t think of where they would be from around here, the closest ranch with Bison is Leona Valley, near Palmdale

    And I think that is where they came from, or maybe somebody owned them somewhere in the Leona Valley. I have had to wait for a couple of big horns to move off of Lake Elizabeth Rd. for around 10 min. You just gotta wait!

    11.2/1,341’ Barrett Stoddard Paragons. I did it!

    The Dante did it 30 seconds faster but failed to record it. The Dante is what’s up.

    Not me; B* has signs prohibiting. Thanks for the compliment (I'm older - maybe oldest, but not fit looking).

    I showed up at a SART ride with a dropper on a rigid bike.
