One of my favorites from just a couple of months after I bought my new to me Adventure. A friend got me to this dirt ride. My first and this loaded up and on sand for hours on end. No training and no tip overs. We'll call it beginners luck and a little help of just watching and doing what I see.
Worn street tires, full pressure. No need to air down. just ride it. The mud runs of a hundred yards each were not welcome. I found myself slithering to a stop a couple of times. The steep crap, with ruts running off the edge into space.
Deep sand of Jawbone sucked. Somehow I managed to ride through it. Must have been the soundtrack to LWR that did it. it sure has heck wasn't skill.
