    Crown King Trip

    Mostly a lurker but member for a year and a half. I have a 91 Tw200 that I got to get back into motorcycling. I got an invite for a ride to Crown King this past Saturday. We met at the Boulders OHV area and left around 10 on Saturday. 3 motorcycles and a Honda 1000 UTV.

    It took about 4 hours to get to Crown King.

    After a beer and a burger. It was back down towards Lake Pleasant.

    The road went along and through the stream several times. One section was about a quarter mile long. Anywhere from a couple to 12 inches of water. Amazed that I did not go down. It was easier coming down from CK as opposed to the climb up.

    We got back to the staging are a little after dark.
    Sorry I don't have more photos, but I had a blast. A bit sore here on Sunday as I have not done a long ride like that for a while. But went out today and got some more gear so I don't have to borrow next time.

    I did ride my buddies Husaberg for about a half hour, but it was a tad tall for me. I think the TW's suspension was a little soft for the trip, but it handled it like a champ. I do plan to put some 2 inch risers on it soon.

    I need to work on the formatting of the pics. Two display instream and two do not.

    That is just awesome. I'm glad you un-lurked for a day. It's so great to start seeing other peoples rides. Thanks so much for posting!!!!
    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?

    I think you'll be riding more after a fun day like that.

    Was watching the newest Dirt Every Day video yesterday when at 8:52 I noticed something familiar.
