Yeah, My personal best on the 610 was 104 downhill on the I-5 @ about 1500' of elevation. (I have a 14 front sprocket though, I'm sure it can go faster )

Speed off-road is stoopit. And kinda addictive. but mostly stoopit.

its a very delicate operation to unload those windmills from china. the bases come in sections which they bolt together. but the blades are one piece and are very fragile. we use 12 inch straps to spread the load out. they go straight from the ship onto the company trucks.

Did the OC Dualies Ridgecrest ride last year with Greenstreak, man that was fun. Awesome riding out there.

I swear, there could be a pretty lengthy thread of just lakebed surprise picks.
