Cove tomorrow (1-25) - January 24, 2015, 04:18 PM

Going to the Cove tomorrow. I called them just now and they said they more or less just got rain.

I have plans for 4pm, so early start. Like to be kickstands up by 9.

Shoot, too short notice for me this time around. I haven't done any maintenance on the bike and still haven't swapped out the bars...

Yea, I thought the weather was going to be much worse so I wasn't even planning on riding at first.

I've got parts to try out, so kinda itching to get out, even if by myself. (MotoZ mountain hybrid and magura hydro clutch)

No. I took it and the lhrb off. I like riding without the aids occasionally when I feel like I've gotten too lazy with my riding. Plus it isn't a race so if I stall 1000 times it's fine

The motoZ hybrid tire worked well today. Good traction and you don't end up on your ass as soon as you see an off-camber bit of trail

Hydro clutch was nice too. With the midwest lever it was easy enough to use 1 finger most of the time.


For those that have been to the cove, here are a couple quick clips of the hill on the blue trail.

Been a while since I've been to the cove. I forgot how rocky it is.

Looks like you had the place to yourself.


Then again... That's just me.

I was the only person there until about 12:30 when a group of 3 showed up (didn't know them).

Looks like the new tire is working well. I may just have to build an 18" wheel (or try out the equilibrium tire in a 19" - I keep thinking I'll go to an 18" though).

We were out at the cove this past weekend. Took the quads out. We did the entire orange trail. Holy rocks Batman. The 4x4 quad wasn't bad. But the 2x4 was a ton of work. I don't think I'd want to ride the dirtbike on that. Some sections were pure rock.

But the quads were a good time.

The rocks at the cove aren't bad on a dirtbike. A little momentum, some trust in your suspension, and protective gear on the bike (on yourself too, just in case) go a long way.

lol. You hate the rocks until you learn how to ride them, then you kind of look forward to them (but only a little).

I wouldn't want to ride anything other than a dirtbike there. Rocks are easy as long as you go with some speed. the slower you go the worse the ride.
