desert trail ride doomed to damage

Video with some cool trails and gnarly hills:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YPstG2P32g4

2 lay-down Husabergs, Suzuki DRZ400S, Kawsaki 250 Sherpa, KTM 300, Yamaha YZ250

This was my first full ride on my Rekluse Z-Start Pro, and one of the Husaberg riders also had a brand-new Rekluse EXP. When he met me atop that gnarly hill (@4:00 in the video) he proclaimed, "So that's why I spent five hundred bucks on that clutch!"







This dead end peak bordered a dual steel cable fence of some kind of religulous retreat.



One of the Husabergs had a standard tube and the valve stem base rippped from the tube. You can't patch that.



The ride leader on the hardest-ridden Kawasaki Sherpa in Nevada threw its chain on a hill. The rider behind him heard a bad noise, which must have been the transmission, because the Sherpa only had 1st and 2nd gears after that.

On limping back to the truck, I was able to get it into 3rd, then 4th, and then 5th. I think I bent the shifting forks. Going to tear into it this week and split the case. She runs great, shifting is just a bit of a chore.

Great ride anyway, would have had more if the sherpa wouldn't have had the issue.
