Ran Swift Rapids rd yesterday along with some other fun trails. Spent 45 minutes getting unstuck from a 2' mud hole, fun times!

Completely disagree. That's what they are there for.

@Iceman - Pictures please, or it didn't happen.
I agree. That bike is WAY too clean.

That was the before shot. After I got it out of the mud hole I was too sweaty and had attracted to many blackflies and mosquitos to even think of pics lol. If I had one of of my friends with me I would've had help getting it out and to laugh at me while they took the pictures.

It's too bad you live in the opposite end of the GTA. I would have loved to laugh and take pictures.

I should have messaged you today so we can do this together.

You were in the same shape I was lol. I just assumed you'd be out on the new yamaha again. We'll have to set something up soon.

Nope. He still insists on riding street bikes too.

I've been in a similar situation, but got rescued. Buddy and I were riding the fire road from his cottage to the trails. A torrential storm the night before had left some of the low areas flooded. Were running a submerged section a hundred yards long up to the cases, and sucked some water into the airbox. Pulled out the tools to pull the plug and get the motor dried out......then the mosquitos came. Was frantically try to swat and wrench to get going and get the hell out of there, then saw a squadron of a couple of dozen dragonflies coming down the access road about a foot off the deck like out of the beach scene in Apocalypse Now (queue Ride of the Valkyrie). They split up and buzzed us, wiping out the swarm of mosquitos in a matter of minutes, then left. Spent the next 5 minutes or so in peace getting the bike going, and we were off and running.

That's what happens when you use the wrong hole on the "backroad"

Bumping an old thread. Can anyone tell me how rough is swift rapids road? Could it be done with a stock CB500X? Hoping to get out there this weekend.

It is totally doable. However they closed the road to public access last week. Too many people leaving garbage everywhere.

Too many Pigs leaving garbage everywhere.

I put a 2$ bag tag on my bike once to go riding in the local township landfill site, the dump attendant just laughed and said go for it.

What a shame. I've been looking at this road for years. Hopefully it's still open.

Thanks Iceman.

Another member posted saying that it would be closed as of June 10. Did they close it off early?

Swift Rapids Road
I just checked on Fb, it is June 10. However they have organized a volunteer clean up on June 15, trying to convince the county to keep access open.
The County has responded by providing three large dumpsters to allow for removal. That's promising.

You'd like Pit Road off the Arden/Tamworth Road, that goes for miles and has serious backwoods trails & sand pits.
Sounds interesting. Where abouts is this road? I searched Pit Road, Arden Road and Tamworth Road with no results.
