Vid: Big Bear Holcomb Valley Ride

Day 2 of our overnighter in the Big Bear Lake, CA area. LinkIT, Shunka and I ride Holcomb Valley. Caleb shows great skill riding off road with balding street tires. I would have laid it down for sure where he just loses control and flies off the road and back on again:

A link to the historic tour we took. Good info on the area and the sights along the ride.

Nah-as I analyze it a bit closer, its obvious you were showing off your true 'off-road' skills.

Shunka-good link, thanks.

I still have my OEM battle wings sitting in the garage. I should probably sell them off since I put Heidenaus on. If I could only change tires more easily myself I would probably use the battle wings except for real off road dual sport rides.
