It's been way too long since I've been up Main Divide. Missing the KTM, gotta get a bike again soon... the itch is getting voracious

Think I might pick up a used DRZ400s soon

Thanks for the thouts guys.

Bike is gonna have to be airlifted most likely. Lol.

I will like need to take it apart likely. Probably gonna go camouflage it. Rear brake is locked, front tire bent, gas line got pulled out and dumped 2 gallons of gas on me while I lay there thinking I am going to burn to death. Busted headlight and blinkers. My neck looks like someone slit my throat from branches and stuff. I'll bet I flew 20 feet out, and 30 feet down. Shits fucked and so I mt back.

Thanks man, not trying to be a pussy, but if see where it is.... You will understand. I took out like 3 trees on my way down, while in the air. My glove got caught, and I full throttled in 3rd gear. Probably doing 30 mph. Very happy to be walking. I'll be looking back on this one day and laugh my ass off.

That might work great.. Would be a good investment actually. Do you know how long the cable is?

Youd definitely need more chain or rope. Itll pull about 15 ft before youd need to reposition your chain or rope. Its really designed as an over head pulley but itll work as long as you have something to attach to, car, tree or stake.
