Last There and Back's lunch break spot. We burned 45 minutes here. You could easily cut that to 25 minutes.

You call them "minutes", the guy in the grey helmet calls them "ciggys", the guy in the white helmet was burning something else altogether..

Haven't used Knobs for years Mate .

Bring cameras guys , there are some shitty tricky spots in this ride and it's always good to see how different folks approach them.
Myself I usually just fall down a lot , Ray has hours of footage with me upside down.

A non rider placed just up the Rowdy section would I'm sure get some fantastic footage.

Pack contains 5 gallons of gas, a bivy bag, spare DRZ cases, and a case of beer. When you take into account that White Helmet is something like 7' tall, that really puts perspective on the enormity of that thing.

Looks like I'm in. GSL is going to borrow a bike that he's storing for a friend of mine. We'll trailer up to Moody Hill. I'm gonna get one more ride out of my thrashed sticky trials tire.

If we have excess daylight, we should ride Kelly Flats to cut out most of the highway 14 pavement.

Why not get some more miles out of the top end before the rebuild? Get medicated & go ride.
