Sorry you weren't able to get a beast to bash-up on the Louie Lake Rd...
Here's an idea for a good simulation:
take your DRZ
add about 300 pounds of weight to it (kinda like handicapping a race horse)
put some slick tires on it

lower it about 4"

now; take it up that road and bash it against every boulder and ledge till you finally spin out 30yds from the lake cause you can't get any more traction...

see; you don't need the big bike, you just have to use some imagination and modify the one you've got to get the same experience!!

Even though it doesn't sound like it, I really did enjoy that ride...
