Depends on your skill level and willingness to drop your bike. It's really not that bad dry like this, the toughest obstacle at this point are just the washed out ruts, they cross back and forth, and if you drop into one, you are committed to stay in it on a big bike.

I made it down Stone Quarry that day with my DL1000 without dropping it, but just to be polite and not make others feel bad I dropped it in a little tiny rut at the end of the Glenmont Trial like I was some complete noob.

There's a ledge that's too big to go over slow (or you'll bottom the engine/skid plate on it), so you have to hit it with enough speed to loft the front wheel. On a dirt bike, no biggie - on a 550lb Strom? Fuuuuuuck. Scared the living shit out of me, but I got down it. I never did it twice, I'll tell ya that. I had Deb jump off the back and walk it cause I was pretty sure I'd eat shit on the way down.

Dry Branch aint no picnic either

I can't remember the one we stopped and looked at from the bottom up. Is that Dry Branch?

If you're going to do it on an SV don't be a pussy and opt of the log crossing.

Lady Run is the one we went up (you fell a couple times) and Dry Branch we looked at but went down along the creek instead

I'd probably try it now with the way I have the WRR setup.

I actually smashed the header of the DL (same setup as the SV) about 1/2 closed, by bottoming it on a rock on Cinnamon Pass. Seems to work just as well as it did before though.

The lower ground clearance of the SV might render that header totally smashed shut, if you hit a rock the right way.

Meef: Not sure if you belong to LocalRidersdotcom, but one of the inmates there was offering up some OEM DL/Wee exhaust parts a few weeks back....free, maybe, or at least cheap? Send a PM to Dave Bannister and check if he's still got 'em.

Didn't we run a pack of V-stroms down Stone Quarry on Swings Ride?

You followed my stumbling noob ass down Stone Quarry and you only don't remember it because every time I dumped my V-Strom was a chance for you to have another smoke.

OTOH; I didn't break anything Meredith couldn't fix, and all in all, it was a very good day on the motorcycle.

Yeah, that's it. I didn't intend on hitting it, I was following my GPS of a track I made with the small bike and had forgotten to take that section out...so by the time I realized what it was turning around was damned near impossible...told Deb to get off and I'd meet her at the bottom.

The creek is fun on a big bike, but that hill sucked. I didn't do it for hero points!

Did it

Kyles new toy.





I got stoped by a cop on 83 south of 71 no tail, brake or turn signals. The cop was real cool. I used his flash light to hook up some wires under the hood that I didnt think I needed when I replaced the battery. One of them was a ground wire and when I hooked it up all the lights started working. I was surprised. So was the cop. I thought for sure he would ask about the $8k bike in the back of a $800 truck but he didnt.
