This is where I realized I was not prepared for what would lie in front of me. A snow, mud, rock hill climb.

You are looking at the beginning of my greatest challenge...

50 degree hill climbs through loose rock. Something I've never done before.

Remember the line from Top Gun... "There is no time to think. If you think... you're dead"?
That is so true.

You just have to grit your teeth and go. If I would have known, I would have psych'd myself out and I would not have tried it.

There is no room for error. If you over-power, or slip, or hit a rock wrong... gravity will get paid.

The 360's tractor power is INVALUABLE. I would not try a high-reving engine on these rock climbs.


I would not trade the experience for ANYTHING.

Here is another line from Top Gun: You never leave your wingman.

You don't want to get separated out here. Stay together.

I guess you heard about this next one...

We are zipping along when we reach deep, soft sand.

I try the classic remedy... full power... lighten the front wheel and hold on tight.

I pass Vance who has become stuck and now it's time for me to fly...



The front wheel digs in, turns hard right and I am ejected from the seat. I am still hanging on to the right hand grip as my right shoulder hits the sand first. The bike continues over me and points the opposite way.

Vance pulls it off of me, and I get up and assess the damage. The PCV on my rear catch tank has separated. Nothing else. No bent forks, no broken levers, and just a sore shoulder.

I provided a great show for the boys and kept on riding. (Thank God!)
