Couple new cuts
« on: March 22, 2009, 06:59:48 PM »
A couple of new cuts were put in on SST yesterday.  Just treat them as you would if you were driving on the road - STAY TO THE RIGHT. 

They were put in on blind curves to help avoid head on crashes.  Also one sandy curve was eliminated and extra vegetation trimmed back here and there to help with line of sight as well.

I thought something looked different out there...
The sand at all the trails used to be mildly annoying, now it's not even funny. I can't believe how dry everything is.  :(

Not if you drive on the wrong side of the road.  ;)
And I lost my common sense the other weekend at Santos when I fell down and went boom and broke my helmet.   ;D

I guess that goes with not riding a one way trail backwards. For some reason I see people do it on Rollercoaster all the time.

I'm amazed that "people" (spelled differently and starting with an M) ride that trail backwards.  It flows better the way that it is MARKED and just goes to show common sense aint so common.
