Since your front wheel is high and dry, am I to assume you were riding a wheelie down the beach?

Rocks -- not so bad (except for the changes in elevation make them worse). Mud -- hate it. Up, down, level-- whatever.

Memory is fine - I was only talking about the Divide ride though Terry T saved our butts many times on that one, lifting KLR's and having every tool known to man along (including a full Motion Pro chain breaker kit).

Black Hills '09 was great - except for the sheared subframe bolts and Denis and I's miserable ride home in cold rain.

Yeah, rocks usually don't bother me. That was the infamous Fleecer Ridge in Montana though. ATV trail just goes straight down, and it's made up of lots of loose shale. We had way too much gear on the bikes behind us on our seats to allow proper riding position for a slope that steep. I managed to get stopped when Terry went down in front of me, but couldn't do anything but step off and let the bike fall over. Even unloaded, with both wheels locked, the damn thing stil wanted to take off down the hill when stood up. Once we got off the bikes and started messing around with gear, trying to push Frank back UP the hill, etc, the elevation (8000 ft at the top, 7000 at the bottom) started really kicking our flatland butts.
That mud in New Mexico was worse though. Had to stop every few hundred feet and clean out the wheels or they would both lock solid. We finally figured out to stay off the "road", where the vegetation held the soil together a little.

This was earlier on the day we hit Fleecer (July 4, 2007) on the Lava Mountain Trail.

Going uphill isn't much better.

Has anyone heard of School Creek ORV near Milford, KS?
I was just chatting with my wife's cousin about dirt bikes and 4wheelers, and he said it's some of the best riding within several hours.

One of the mechanics that used to work with me was from Milford, Kansas. He said the trails were alot of fun, but said you didn't want to ride there on the weekends. Too many people and too many of them were drunk.
