"I wonder if there is a difference in operating philosophies between ranger districts. Colorado Four Wheelers did the gate swing at China Wall with the forest service on the 15th, just don’t know if it was “official” or not. They also were scheduled to do a cleanup run on the 20th.
Brian, if you see this, can you elaborate?"
We definitely had the support of the ranger district on the 15th. They sent us two FS rangers to assist us/unlock the gates, and they rode the entire trail with us just like in years past. The 20th clean up was just a club run without FS support to go back and take care of items we discovered on the 15th. A little litter and some carsonite posts, etc.
I didn't get to go back on the 20th after experiencing either a bad IAC or TPS. Had to hold it above 2500 RPM to keep it running and limped it home. Couldn't get replacement parts in time for the 20th. Someone had replaced the TPS previously and busted the pigtail, but thread-locked the screws! Seriously boogered up the threads trying to remove the TPS, so ordered a new TB which should be here today.
