    Three Fingers Gulch - Part II Saturday 20 Sept 2014

    Wife has a hair appointment this Saturday, so I decided I'm gonna finish the 3 Finger Gulch ride Ron, Larry and myself rode at the end of this past April (https://tw200forum.com/forum/trails-o...gers-rock.html). Suppose to be Sunny and 86* for a high, so should be great weather!



    I'm going solo, well Georgie's coming, unless someone wants to join me. On our last ride we had to by-pass a couple of side trips and I want to see them before riding season ends.

    I 'm also planning on riding to Leslie Gulch as well. (https://tw200forum.com/forum/trails-o...-heat-one.html)


    If you want to come, meet me at Succor Creek State Park (Oregon) at 8:00 a.m. I have to be back for supper, so this is gonna be an early start. My planned route will be about 75 miles and I need to be back at the start point around 4:00 p.m.

    If I know you're coming and you're running late, I will wait until 8:30 a.m. before I take off. Otherwise it's kickstands up at 8:00 a.m.

    Looks like fun in the gulches. Wish I was closer to join you and Georgie. Your photos do look very inviting. Gonna put a few more miles on the '94-'05 hybred? Let us know if transplanted motor feels different, perhaps the mild weakness here in sierras could have been due to higher elevation when you visited. And what a fun visit it was!

    I think a dirty air filter had more to do with the mild weakness, not that elevation didn't play a minor part as well. Honestly, after we were out on the trail for a while I didn't even notice a difference.

    I'm so stoked to be back riding I made an excuse the last couple days to ride some pavement to a car dealership and DMV. Engine ran, and speeds were just as good as before, so I think power loss is in my head.

    "Gonna put a few more miles on the '94-'05 hybrid" I've never named a motorcycle before, but if I did name this one it would be named "Die FrankenTWstein"

    Sounds good. Heading west out of Homedale on the road to Adrian, there will be a sign to turn left for Succor Creek SP. See you tomorrow.
