    TW200 ride

    Wow, been a very long time since I dropped in here. My TW200 is still going strong. My wife learned to ride on it and now rides it , or her Harley. My son learned to ride on it and now rides a KLR650. I still love to ride it.
    Every two years I ride the desert powerline to the owyhee dam:

    Few weeks ago a few of us TW'ers were out in your neck of the powerlines as well. Big country that's for sure.

    Indeed. You get up on top and look around to see we are indeed fortunate to have lots of "nothing" to explore. I found it very dry. A couple roads were inpassable for larger vehicles due to erosion. Over all the trails were better than 2 years ago though. Heavy precipitation had washed deep cuts and ruts. Some of those have softened.

    My last ride out there we basically started up the canyon at the last campground and rode south around 3 Finger Rock then down the fun trail to Succor Creek CG. The plan was to ride north past Antelope Springs and then back to the staging area but I got a flat front tire. Had that not happened I believe I would have ridden or been close to riding some of the roads/trails you did.

    For the longest time, I thought the bridge/trail out of the campground was non-motorized but I came down from Antelope Springs earlier this year and see they put in a new bridge. Or at least it looks newer and wider to accommodate utv's. I could have sworn a few years ago there was a sign at the bridge say non-motorized and plenty of web traffic indicating it was or would be but not now.

    There is a lot to explore out there and find cool places if you know where to look and I'm sure you know some pretty secret places yourself...on both sides of the lake.

    I was NW of where you were. North from the Owyhee dam to Adrian.









    We have rode the area from the cave through succor cr. campground to leslie gulch. Beautiful country! Some of our adventures here : BLT Offroad
