Even if there is not a "trench" on every turn around you want to do.

Im glad that I have started to get the hang of a brake skid to turn around.

=( been way to little riding time this summer been a bit down and hardly any video what so ever.

Shane Watts school? Looks like a blast. I may have to look into this.

Highland Park Hare Scramble race on 950...

Well another hare scramble in the books. Had a great time at the last one or two (or three) and thought I'd give it another go. In spite of posting everywhere trying to drum up riders for the ADV class, it was slim pickings again this time. Only three of us. Myself on my KTM 950 Super Enduro, another guy from ADV on a KLR650 (he also has a 450 but thought it would be fun for a first time to race his 650), and another guy I didn't know on a Honda XR650. Turns out he works in a local (ATL) shop and is a 35+ A hare scramble rider. lol. But it was still fun. Another guy from ADV came up on his XT225 and raced with us, and because of the rows we started on, he started with us (I think there were maybe 3 classes on the same row). I got a decent start in spite of missing my shift into second but the 950 can pull a bit of a hole shot if you are willing to leave it open (I"m not). but then there were 5 or 6 jumps and some whoops to run before we got into the woods. I knew the other guy on the XR was going to beat all of us when he went by me (about head high) over one of the doubles that I rolled. ok, I rolled all of the jumps for the most part. Jumping isn't part of the 950's repetoir if you ask me. At least not with my skill level.

I ended up doing 4 laps, about 2 hours and i was pretty done. first lap is just trying to get into the groove and remembering that 2nd gear is your friend. second lap is smooth and having fun now. third lap was the start of a few arm cramps and trying to be smooth and steady. fourth lap was just kind of survival for me but rode thru it and started to have some fun towards the end again. My GoPro only lasted about 2 laps so I didn't get much good video but enough to post up something. I passed a few folks, didn't get passed too often (leaders went by me the fourth lap at a good clip and I got passed when I fell over (yes it's in the video)) but other than that I did a lot of solo riding. The trails wind around a lot so you hear lots of other bikes in the video but most were on other trails. The guy on the XT225 rode behind and in front of me quite a bit so you hear him. He stopped once or twice to help others and crashed on a jump but still did great. I was impressed with his performance as well as the guy on the KLR as he didn't come in that far behind me, so he was running a good pace, especially for a KLR!! :)

We hung out for a while afterwards for our trophies, and had a good time laughing about the course. Nothing too hard, but a few sections that kept you on your feet. if you have any interest in racing or just having a good time, I can highly recommend the highland park hare scrambles. The courses are fun, plenty of easy passing opportunities, no log jam sections, and just a really good way to get your feet wet. And Paul lets us race in the ADV class (over 650cc street legal).

Anyway here's the video. not very exciting, but worth a watch..

click it up to 1080p and turn the sound up if you like to hear a V-twin! There will be another in the spring if anyone wants to join in the fun!
