Thanks for the video Ricardo. We had to do something adventurous while we were out there.

I was wondering what happened to you. Didn't know you were banned. Welcome back.

Must have been steeper than it looks. I don't remember a hill that was that silty and hard to get up the last time I did that ride.

The forest service did us all a nice favor by doing some "road maintenance". As you can see from the jeep and our bikes in the video, they really made some huge improvements to traction Probably won't be back to normal until we get some nice rain to wash away their work, it's loose grainy stuff that won't pack down well and will just get shredded by any vehicle that passes that way.

Dang! I wouldn't want to be to close behind you on that 690 going up that hill.

Any local interest in my '08 KTM 530 EXC-R or '04 XR650L? Shoot me a PM...
I've got it bad for a 690 and would need to sell those to finance the dream





Ya, I know slowred just posted a 690 for sale that is not helping....

I know I am just chit chatting that's all, I still love that DRZ, for now, I got to sell my DR650SE first I don't need all that hardware in my garage plus I got 2 mountain bikes as well got to stay in shape. Michhub's EXC-R has nice features.

HERESY, PURE UNADULTRADED HERESY !!!!! Punishably by inquisition of the faithful and a decision of death by fire at the stake or drawing & quartering.

Painting of the sacred orange is a path I would not choose lightly, nor even in jest, as repercussion for even the mere thought of such travesty could being about the wrath of the gods.

Do not make this assertion with the belief that "its funny" as you will release a shit storm unlike anything known to mere mortals & a curse upon your own that will make Moses's Egyptian plagues but mere child's play.

I beseech you my friend , DO NOT anger the ORANGE GODS of all that is great & good in the world of motorcycles.
