Another view of that one...

Yeah, that was a good one... it was steeper and knarlier than it looks, but still: "uh, can I find a MORE dangerous place to just tip her over... " LOL!

This is thread belogs to all of us, so feel free to write the RR... My fingers are still a bit cramped... LOL!!

It seems like a wonderful and fun ride. But definitely not for a offroad virgin. :) I am glad i have listened to your advice for the ride...
I'll be practicing in my back yard for the next big adventure... Next time you are not getting away that easy guys...

We hit sand, whoops, washed-out washes (uh, yes, I know, redundant--but you had to be there...), knarly brush-busting single track (yup--ask the guys), deep rutted-out muddy drops, solid climbs, dangerous narrow bridge crossings (enhanced by Rider914 psycha-ma-logical branch placing...), failed deep water surfing, mud bog digging action, high-speed gravel, highway blizting, decent mexican food and Dos-XX beer (ok, ok, I had a Corona! lol), and just generally a great time that I will never forget!

After lunch, Rider and Rider14 told us they would take us down a more relaxed path... Wow! That's when we hit the whoops, then the knarly single track! Man, was it fun!!!!!

Towards the end of the ride, after dropping my bike a couple times from sheer fatigue, i rode up to Rider914 and told him that I was cramping up.... I mean, I had cramps where I didn't even know I had muscles! I soldiered through to the end, and was relieved and sad to hit the JitBox parking lot... Relieved because I could change into dry clothes and rest my weary body, but sad that such an awesome (and epic, to me) ride was over...

Thank goodness that Ben was kind enough to let me follow him or I don't know how I would have got across some of the craziness. Thunderdoggie was a great riding partner and it was fun to follow him through some of the stuff...

Rider914 and Rider are just awesome riders--it put me at ease to know that these guys were scouting the trail and looking out for us (even if they were filming some of the carnage.... LOL!).

Thanks, guys! And we have to do this again very soon!

Ok so since I'm a father this year and prob won't get all fucked up new years eve, how about we ride the other side and go up to arrowhead on new years day. Trust me it will be easier and just as epic.

define "easier and epic". I thought this ride was suppose to be easy. Looking at the pics, I am glad I stayed home.
I was thinking about going before all the rain. Then I remembered how well my tires do in the mud with a ride with Ben and Fishyhead.

great pictures and videos. "Rider914" and "The rider" surely deserve a not only did they lead the ride and came to this noobs rescue time and again, but also did the RR on an epic day. I'd like to do it again just as soon as I fix the clutch on my BRP and get some life back in my right leg which is still not fully functional from kick starting pig about a 1000 times
