My laughing woke the kids from their sleep. My lungs are sore and my eyes are still tearing. And just to be clear, I was going to swap my parts for yours.

We missed all of that good stuff that was the continuation of Sito Hill from the last ride. (remember that hill you went up by accident)
That is honestly where I thought the adventure of this ride was to begin, but your bike knew better. The video is almost done.
bwahahahahahaha.....Sito forgot to mention that this ride was HIS idea...I was going to spend the day with my wife.....

more sand and woops



Those whoops look manageable after the rain and the sand was more than a foot deep during the KotW. Water does wonders.

Get that video up! Must be hilarious! Rider was smart enough to go AROUND the three Honda's and the sole KTM stuck in the mud...

Good stuff! My palms were sweaty just watching it! And Sito, boy, do I feel ya! I felt much the same way on my "noob, easy ride.." with TheRider914, Rider, Ben99R1, and ThunderDoggie... Same "oh yeah, piece of cake... just a little moisture..." Yeah right! LOL!!

That looked like a sh*t load of fun!

not really, rob. at least not on the big bikes. the front wheel would sink at least 3 or 4" deep into the sand, and you had to avoid anyone's tracks in front of you cause your bike would instantly get sucked into their marks, which made things kind of hairy on a 500+ lb. bike.

i still had fun, though.
