[QUOTE=silverspurs;21958913]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
My DRZ is way used to having nearly 300 lbs on it, and for the record I used to race the Clydsdale class in MTB races
