Oh, I'll probably be on my side more than on the wheels but it will be exciting either way! If I could only convince the wife that two bikes are better than one I wouldn't have that issue; there would be a new 500 next to the 990. I have seriously been considering downsizing. I just can't figure out the perfect smaller bike.

I've run the 990 down Dictum Ridge from 2nd Mt road to where the ATV road turns to trail and back while getting a DStag. But going from rt33 up to that point on a 990 will be worth putting on youtube. We will need at least 4 committed people on this ride...and rope/straps.

Edit: 5 people, one to film.

It is a bit steep. Over 30% grade in a couple of spots.


Almost 500ft elevation gain in less then a half mile.

If it ain't wet, I'm willing to give it a try.

edit pictures: If you look at the album, only the last couple are from the ledges on dictum ridge. The rest are from rough run and another road I forget the name of.

From sept. 2009 ds ride with george
This route looks BADASS!!! (Am I allowed to say that on here? Nevermind, I don't care) If we are taking these roads then I just might leave the guns at home.

Thats why I was saying just your concealed carry and a box of ammo. It shouldn't take up much room or add to much weight. Keep it simple.

As soon as you get off rt 33 your are going straight the cuss up through off camber rutted baby heads. If it's wet, I'm not going either.

Well, I'm game as long as I have friends to film (and also to help pick up that pig when I crash)!

Will anyone be free that thursday? We could do a scouting run with a gopro so an informed decision could be made.




Anyone have a gopro.

Ahh, what the hell, I'm game; looks like there might a good group of us attempting this so when I break myself and my bike at least I'll have help!


Oh, and of course there'll be someone video-documenting it too!
