Not what I expected. I went slow when I should have gone fast and went fast when I should have gone slow. A sandy area, a large rock in the wrong spot, and sharp turn got the best of me. But with lots of help and babysitting from the guys (thanks orangeheart) I made it. The new bike now has some cool battle scars and I got some good stories and pics.
Full throttle ahead.
See ya latter.
You picked a tough one for your VERY FIRST off road M/C experiance. Ride all the way from Long Beach, do almost 100 miles off road (some tough shit too) and then ride all the way back to Long Beach in the same day, my hats off to you bionicbushwaker!!
