You know me Coasty. Gentle! OK, maybe not so gentle for a loaded Buel. But its only really the first trail that will cause issues. The rest should be OK. So bypass the first trail (Ill point you where to go so we meet up). Will be good to see you again.

No vids, but theres a few photos on this thread.

The first trail may be an issue on bigger loaded bikes. So the choice is to ride around or we man handle the bikes up. Ive done them on a loaded 950 adv in the past with no probs, but a Buel or GSA may be another story. After this first trail the rest should be OK assuming you have some off road experience.

This is the start of the first trail. This will be the hardest. Continue along the road to the farm. Pass through some gates into the farm courtyard. You want the gates on the left. The trail is then a rocky climb. On a GS Id say go round but you know your own abilities.

NY309015

The rest of the trails should be OK on a GS. Some rocky decents but were all done by a GSA last year.
