Why are you guys so against a mix of trail styles?
Agreed. I rode Executioner and Dreamweaver last night. Great mix of trails right there.

"That was when it struck me why primitive trails are not as popular as I think that they should be. They are not instantaneously gratifying. Often they can't be ridden the first time without coming off the bike for a good distance, unless you are practiced in riding those sorts of trails."
I feel the same way about challenging skinnies going the way of the dodo. Falling off a skinny the first time I tried it just made it even more of a personal challenge to clean it on later attempts (or dare I say, session it until I got it).

Ummm... IMO most of the illegal stuff on the Shore is still more shit kicked than the legal stuff up the S2S.
