I'll be up there (first time) this weekend and I'd like to take a crack at it on the 610.
It is part of the normal loop. There is a way around for riders who don't feel up to it.

We call those the Kenny Katchers. They are left there for a reason.

I went to the liquid image goggles shortly after I caught a good one at , i think it was tuxedo ridge, Snapped my head back hard enough to make me thankful I was wearing my neck brace. Its amazing how strong that glue is

That's why under the visor seems to be the best spot for go pro and countour cameras...

I have a side mount for my cheapo xtc720. doesn't seem to get in the way much. just did my valve adjustment/carb teardown yesterday, ready for my first ride this season. got all sorts of new gear over the winter now if only I could afford a "new" bike, maybe I'd drink "the orange cool-ade"

The force of the Orange cool aide is a strong one Luke.

I'd call it more of a 'rock' climb, than a hill climb. You are probably on the trail already, but the 610 will handle Pachaug. Here is mine on 1,1,2012 although we are going down the hill in the opposite direction that most people ride it. https://vimeo.com/34631576

This month's Dirt Rider had a good article on neck braces. I scanned it to a PDF and put it on my server in case anyone is interested in checking it out. The editor's goal was to provide facts based on data, so people could make up their own minds. It's not just one big advertisement.

Thanks for the article Rob. There was a neck brace thread on here somewhere and it was pretty much the same as an oil thread. I wear one all the time I ride, well 99.9%. I think they are like many common safety items. In the overwhelming majority they will help you but just like anything else there is a chance it can result in a negative result.
