Probably less of a scolding and more of a friendly warning.

I think it was after I pulled a 3 wheel move twice within about 20 feet. I think I was trying to go around rocks thinking I couldn't drive over them and got a little tippy.

I wheeled mine 2-3 times before getting a lift with disconnects. I had a couple close calls. I got scolded by turdhurdler for one of them.

This is why the "easy" label on Cleghorn makes me nervous. Fire roads are easy. You can't just take a bypass in the middle of the v-notch. I know; I looked for one.

Yeah, that was an interesting day on Holcomb. Our guy is stuck then the guy flops doing something stupid, then throw in the motorcycles not wanting to wait for a complete clusterf*ck!

I remember he almost flopped a second time. NOT AGAIN!

I think the reason people call it easy is because you can do all of the off shoots (in dry conditions) with few mods.

Most would say Holcomb is medium difficulty and John Bull is medium to hard. However, I would say less flop potential on both of those.

I've done JB only once and it made me less nervous than some of the spots on Cleghorn that I've done around 10 times. Similar with Holcomb.

The difference is you need a more advanced build (lockers) to make Holcomb and JB easier. Whereas with Cleghorn and the many off camber sections, a locker might not help you. Take the wrong line on a steep hill and you might flop or roll.

Since I mentioned Holcomb. Here's a flop from about a year ago. He flopped while in reverse. Oops! ha ha

Gunner My last time was my first time on Cleghorn. Big Vic had XJPhil lead us. We took a ton of offshoots. It still has snow on the ground which was melting. Was very slick in spots. Lots of V notches and a couple of steep slippery downhills. I was having a blast. I'm still too green to know better. If the leader makes it thru then I oughta be able to. Right?
