It was time to find out how I might do racing a DRZ in a hare-scramble type event…Continue reading “2021/11/07 – Whiskey Creek / Bonzai Brapp”
Another quick trip for sunset pix. Cold and windy.Continue reading “2021/10/30-31 Sunset Dash (4th?) Solo”
I recently got a used GoPro 7 black, and it works quite well, except that it occassionally shifts into time-lapse mode and I get hundreds of jpegs instead of my cool action video :(Continue reading “GoPro and accidental timelapse videos”
Mostly just a place holder. A darn good ride despite being a long day in the drizzle.
I had some “unknown” wheels to “pass along”, and got to measuring them. I also had a spare set of OEM DRZ wheels handy, so I measured them too.Continue reading “DRZ wheel hub specs”
Just a place holder for now. Great ride, but long! Out over Todd, looked for Maid lake bypass, but had to run the moat, down to Lens via my original (KLR) track, looked for the high camp at Fairy Creek but couldn’t get all the way in. Gordon River Rd back to Cowichan. hard climb up BFH and raced daylight back to Shawnigan.
A run out through west sooke and back via Cowichan, sticking our noses into a few places I hadn’t been for a while.Continue reading “2021/09/25 Diversion and J40 with Rob”
A quick run up to Oliphant to see how things might have changed over the summer when it was too dry to ride. Some of the less common trails NEED to be ridden, they are getting overgrown (e.g. A-frame). A good ride, took a while to warm/loosen up.
Both Greg and I had cause to be out in the West Sooke direction, so we met up for another ride at Tansky. I forgot the GPS and didn’t take many pictures (newer GoPro should arrive soon!). But Greg apparently logged the track and took a few shots which he has published in Relive … https://www.relive.cc/view/v1Ow3KWy4XO
As you can see from the track, we did get a little lost in the loops and short cuts of Top Gun, and then I couldn’t remember exactly where the FM trail was. It was a good ride, we rode hard, and I am sore the day after. (just some pix in the extras).Continue reading “2021/09/05 – Tansky with Greg”
Chris organized a few guys to head back out to Tansky. Some good technical riding. The highlight was probably Greg and I running up “FM” to meet Colin and Chris who wanted to ride down it. Tansky is always technical, and I haven’t had a chance to ride like that for a long time — lots of rear wheel sliding through turns, lots of go big or go home, oh, and lots of yellow jackets too :(Continue reading “2021/08/22 – Return to Tansky”
