I ran up sheep creek switch backs on my WR250R--------packed with camping and cooking gear---food for 4 days like it was nothing. I never even stopped--------it was a long climb as you guys remember------piece of cake for me and my WR250R------and the motor is stock------------my buddy was packed heavier than me and he had no problems either--------he probably weighs 250 lbs.--------me 200.

I ran up it a few days before you guys did.
Anyway--------peoples mileages vary on riding.

Wish I could have went on your guys group ride--------but I had another bigger ride in the books that conflicted with going on the official ride.
My buddy and his bike are in this picture---and you can see my track in front of him in the moist dirt as I went before him.

And yep------we made it too the cabin.

If your bike weighs more than 400lbs. You might not make it.
