Great photo! Brilliant timing! We've all been in this o-shit moment, and what a great capture of it, especially on the big beast!
You look so relaxed!!!

Might as well throw a little Colombian mud in the mix. I got too slow and sunk it to the rear axle and bottom of the pegs so I had to get off and push. This wasnt the worst of the day but close.

Gracias amigo. Yeah, I was 2 up for a couple of weeks there. I taught my passenger to stand up and hold onto me when I stood up, and let the bike move beneath her. With that technique it was actually pretty easy to get through mud, rocks and deep ruts 2up. You just cant get too slow in the mud. She was cold, soaked, covered in mud, and was hooting and hollering every time we went through a big mud pit. That was a really fun day of riding in Colombia.

Yeah Martyn, this is good stuff, reminds me of the Glamis dunes here in SoCal.

Hope all is well with you hermano! When you coming to ride Baja with me?

Commuting in Iowa

Well, it's not as impressive as all the other pictures, but commuting in December in Iowa can be interesting:
