My post was not intended to chastise you, only to avoid sucking other riders into situations that could be detrimental to all of us.
The first time I went to Moab I started riding the Slickrock Trail on my R100GS, solo. I got to the top of the first hill and decided that my clutch probably wouldn't survive much more, so I turned around.
Now that I've ridden the trail numerous times on a dirtbike I wouldn't even consider it on a big bike.
