This is not the place to bring to wrong tool for the job.
This is one of the sections I mentioned earlier.

Of note is the fact that SR took this pic after the ATV boys had their way with "engineering" the landslide.

The landslide, BTW, caused a great many of the ATVs to turn around and head back upmountain to catch the paved Espinazo to Mazatlán.

Only a downhill section of about 200m, but photos don't do justice to landscapes/gnarly stuff.

KEY POINT:

If the ATV boys can band together to get each other through tough sections, so, can the moto boys.

And we did.

Pushing, helping, ghost riding, river crossings. It took a group effort to bridge the gap, to speak.

The section in this photo was one of the toughest.

I hired a consulting firm/helicoper/moving company to get my (SRs) DRZ down this stretch.

Full Disclosure: Hector, SRs friend, took the DRZ through this section for me.

If I had tried it, I would have been on my butt with a broken DRZ and a possible broken me.

Neither of which me, SR, or anyone else wanted in the Sierra.

Just downhill from this shot, both SR and Hector dumped their bikes trying to get through a rocky gap.

If you do this ride in 2014, be prepared to go down. Even if you are Enduro Champ of the World.
