kx100,
My wife & I will be up there on Sunday (17th). Not sure if we'll park at Middle Creek or make the drive up to Deer Valley.

You gonna have a new rear tire? Not sure a slick will work anymore:p

oh yea!
I'll attempt to do my first jetting job tonight and change the rear tire tomorrow night and probably stick a thicker tube in the rear.
yay! :)

KX100,

I've never been to Middle Creek and the ride sounds great! I will try to put the bike back together since its a bit mangled from the Pole Cat Enduro. I may need to muzzle my wife as well as shes gettin' a bit snarly from all this riding.:scream: Anyone got some directions?;)

Dave,
I think I've got the muzzlin' thing down finally after 4 years of scar tissue,:scream: but if you've got a smoothe tecnique I'm all ears. The pain usually only lasts till I get on the bike though:p Directions to Middle Creek would be most excellent!!

Kali,
Tell Kevin that you must go to Middle Creek on Sunday - you have a date with a tree root on #29:p

Just get him there...

Kali,
After riding at Middle Creek Kevin will A) Love you even more for making him go B) Be to darn tired to lay a hand on you:p C) Want to kill me for causing him to scratch his pretty, new bike.

I'm thinking a easy warm up in the morning - similar to what we rode before lunch - with the whole group & then splitting up into a fast & slow group after lunch. It's your job to get Kevin there - and it better be early enough to get a good ride in after 'lunch'.....

I hope I'll fall under the 'fast' category after all the riding I'll be doing saturday :p

my bike was running pretty weird out there last weekend.. should I rejet it to run richer or leaner with the altitude out there? I'm guessing its between 3000'-5000' feet..

kx100,
Altitude ranges from ~2000ft down at Middle Creek CG to ~6000ft at Elk Mtn & Goat Mtn (Stonyford side). You were running rich - assuming you run clean at Metcalf & Hollister. I'd say drop the pilot & main 1 size - Fremontguy or dirt bike dave have suggestions? I don't mess with the XR or my WR when we ride up there & I'm lousy at jetting 2smokes so don't take what I said as gospel.
