Random news and thoughts about various two-wheeled projects and music, especially my band, Skull Full Of Blues.

I Love To Ride The Scrambler Off-Road

Tom and I went down to the Devil's head area, in Rampart Range, today.  We rode up Jackson Creek Road, and turned north on Rampart Range Road.

Soon after hitting RRR, we jumped off onto the singletrack and rode along on the trail.  Eventually, we came to one of the many "rock piles" in the area, and played around on the exposed granite for a while.

 After a bit of that, we continued on down the trail.  The trail became a bit more technical, and I did bottom the suspension a couple of times, both front and rear, before I backed off a bit and just let Tom pull away.  The Scrambler is fun, off-road, but it is certainly no match for a Honda XR-650...

 Eventually, we made our way back to town and stopped for a couple of beers and some chili cheese fries (green chili - delicious!).

The Scram is a bit dusty, but no worse for the wear.  The ride did reinforce my desire to get a real skid plate for the bike (not the cosmetic version that Triumph sells), though.

Love the left hand turn photo.

What a freaking blast! Yeah, I agree with Pondero, that turn makes for a great image.
