A bit of gnarly single track on the 500lb beast

First time out in the dirt with the new Rekluse clutch on my 2013 F800GS. Bike suspension is totally stock. Friend Mike let me know about a "Most Difficult" section of single track in Pipi Valley here in the CA Sierra foothills so decided to give it a shot.

This video is of a downhill portion of the single track. It got reasonably steep on spots with deep undulations and some crazy tight switch backs. Once I dropped into second gear just before the trail narrows, I didnt need to touch the clutch. Got a bit sketchy there a few times Fun stuff…

Im really impressed with how this bike handles this type of terrain... The Rekluse makes it that much better.

Looked like a good bit of riding. Good job! Maybe loose the mirrors before takeoff though next time.

Our most recent trip finished last week. Very remote for the lower 48. Was originally going to go with 2 wr250r due to the nature of the trails. One of the bikes broke right before we were to leave so I rode my f800gs. Took it on some seriously sketchy trails. Fun times. Recommend HD

Thank you. We do these trips for the scenery and to find the most remote places we can. No fancy hotels or food eating on our trips. All dehydrated food and only the basic tent camping. I have over 400 pictures from this trip. Only a very few made the short movie clip.
