ok, glad I didn't come.

I think I could have gotten through some of that but I'm not really a big fan of dropping my bike and it seems a necessary evil on this ride.

Your videos are a great lesson in picking the right line. I loved them but my wife watched through her fingers.

Thanks for posting this great ride report and invite me on something half this hard. My wife is working every Saturday for the next few months.

Wow, now that's a rocky road! Loved the "Game over" vid, especially the parking sequence at the end! Nice job, thanks for posting.

Great report as usual Terry.

Back in the day when I first rode this area we called the above pictured section "dead knobby hill". Used to have a little dirt on it....not any more. Looks like perfect traction

I can't decide whether to curse or thank the ear infection that kept me from this ride.

Nightstalker: The panoramas are cool and so are the videos, but you need something that can do those steep sections justice. When are they coming out with a compact 3D camera?

edit: I should have done a little search before I posted... Fuji Beat me to it!

I don't see many cementaries here in AZ but that sure looks like a good trail to die on.

My arms hurt just looking at those pics.

Thanks for posting, especially the vids, I got arm pump like another reader! I really liked the vids with NO music, listening to your revs and other stuff made it more real.
