Of course it can. I'm still kinda tweeked, so I plan on taking it fairly easy, there are some good hills to climb, but nothing crazy. You thinkin' Alon?

__I__ the one and only Crashymotic did it on the 610, and I think only had one near death experience. My Radiator barely survived but you'll have no prob with the XC.

You really OUGHT to ride it after sinking all that $$ into it, or is it a show piece in your living room now?

But open to anything, me,biggie,vern and xymotic road there a few weeks ago, it was good. I have had my 990 out there plenty of times, it's not too gnarly on the big bike, just lots o' rocks.
I don't mind the rocks so much on the 640, but the woops get old. More rocks or woops on this loop?

he can handle it (Alon). John, there are whoops but always alternatives past them. One of the nice things about Stoddard is there's a lot of open desert. So if the whoops are too much, just parallel the trail.
Look at post #10624 on this thread, it'll give ya an idea of the ride and terrain.
