It doesn't seem to matter what you ride, Red Rock can be a problem. Whether your bike is a Husky TR650 or a lighter KTM, it seems like you can be passed by the best of them.
I remember this funny LA-B-to-V quote I put in the Jan/Feb 2012 newsletter a year ago:
Greg from Visalia: Talking to a fellow DRZ rider at the finish, I asked how he did through Red Rock Canyon at the rock crossing. He said, "Went through it, no problem. Must have gone by about $100,000 worth of KTM's.”
See what I mean?
