Taylor Park Ride 9-1-10

Another fantastic week of riding in Taylor Park.
Started out by parking at the trading post and riding Timberline from the trailhead near Mirror Lake. The dry conditions made for some very technical riding through the rocks of this epic trail. All of our KTM’s answered the call and didn’t let us down. We are all using Kenda’s K270 dual sport tire. It has an excellent grip that doesn’t impact the trail as much as a full on knobby. The cost is very reasonable at about $60.
I was riding my 450 XCW while everyone else chose 300 XC’s. Slaven’s Racing in Colorado Springs has the jetting dialed in on the 300’s. It was a simple task to install his kit. No other adjustment was needed.

Unfortunately for off road motorcyclists we have lost several amazing trails. Mountain bike enthusiasts have gained the most from this by gaining hundreds of miles of trail that will be designated as hiking and bicycling only.
If you have a favorite trail that is on the chopping block, this summer may be your last chance to enjoy it. A few of my favorites are Eerie Basin, Doctor Park Trail, Strand and Strand Bonus. I am not certain the exact date the trail head signs or designation will change.
