Holy Shit Rob!

Robs got the right idea. Once you get the first scratch on it, you don't care anymore and start to have real fun on your big adv bike. I followed a guy on a 950 up a easy, but rough fast hero section and he was riding the friggin' wheels off that thing like he was on a 250 2S. He was having a blast!

All priceless. Thanks for posting Ed!


And Joe, you (as well as Brian and Ed) beat me on the first section too. That's what lit the fire under my ass. I wasn't try to win anything. I was just trying to keep from being passed by you guys again.

At 2:25 the guy is pointing to the left and you kept going straight. Was that him yelling at you?

I don't take anyone too seriously out in the woods. Not sure if that guy was associated with the event or a forest hermit. I did eventually turn left to stay on course.
He had a funny yodel type of yell. (:
