Spanish Lakes 4x4 trail Part I

Video 1, from the beginning to about 1.5 miles in on the 5 mile trail.

I need to edit the rest & break it up, my files are too large and there is a lot of really slow riding (fighting the trail) on 1 loose uphill grade in particular

Does it end with a nice sweep up and to the right before going left on a relaxing straight away?

Nice riding with you guys yesterday. Glad we all made it up to Spanish lakes. Justin hasn't posted the video yet but it takes both of us to get the DR up the hill! Also I hit reserve on the XT at Wishon on the way out and was able to make it all the way to shaver (35 miles) nursing it. Put 2.3 gallons in the 2.2 gal tank on the XT! The one advantage of a small bike.

Damm, I wanted to go. Had things to do Sunday as I am heading up to Redding Thurs. Nice video JP. That was me on Academy in front of you guys bwt 180 and Belmont. Was trying to go slow enough for Jp to pass me, but he wouldn't. Plan on riding the weekend after next, any takers?

That was a great ride again, Thank's to our trail guide JP.. That hill he is talking about was dry powdery dirt with plenty of those rock things in it. Not many people would be able to make it up that with HWY tires !!. 175 miles is what I stopped at and that was from the meeting point. http://s3.amazonaws.com/advrider/jive.gifhttp://d26ya5yqg8yyvs.cloudfront.net/DramaLlama.gif
