Loved it! I liked the 1st music best, rumba? I attempted Lolo last summer, but had a biff about 30 miles in in some wet clay ruts, Thanks for showing me what I missed.

Cumbia....so my Latin dancing daughter tells me. Wet clay ruts are still there.

That was very enjoyable. Thanks.

I have two questions:

1. What happened to the two women in the Suburu?

2. Were you pleased with the performance of the Super Tenere in those conditions? Were there times you wished you were riding something a bit lighter?

#1 The 2 women, turned out to be man and wife in their late 60's, I passed them withing 10 mins. of videoing the intro, dont know after that.

#2 I love the bike, I like the weight and size of it when I have 1000 kms to get to a trail like this one and then I wish it was a 200 lb dirt bike with full on knobbies when I get there. I have done a lot of this sort of thing on my DR 650 and all though its great on the trail, its nasty on the hiway and cant handle all the weight of the camping gear etc. I hate chain maint. on the trail so the shaft was a big factor for me. I am one that has had a rear drive fail on the other brand and am leery of a single sided swing arm for the beating I regularly dole out to my bikes. I have not ridden my DR since I got this bike if that tells you anything. When in the muddy slime the weight and girth of the bike is on your mind for sure but if you can get over that its a keeper. On the trail my speeds ranged between 10 mph and as high as 65 mph about the same as I would do on the DR, I bottomed the front suspension once only on the trail and thanks to the ABS I didnt kill the bike or myself. I also have the Hedeneus K60 tires on it which make a bike difference off road.

I'm from Idaho and haven't done the Lolo yet, and you've come from Canada to do it. I've done the Magruder Rd and this one is high on my to-do list. From your video, the road looks really fun. Trail question, are there any established forest service campsites along the way or unofficial campsites?

Thanks for sharing

Great trip and (as always) super video production!
I'd love to pick your brain some time on equipment and production technique.

Love The Video

Hi Dave, that was a great video! Thank you for making it. Was it wet when you rode the Lolo? It looks a bit wet in the video, and if it was, was it more helpful, or did it make it more difficult.

I am going to be riding Lolo this September with a buddy, but he has a tougher time on nastier streches. Is the trail doable for relatively new dirt riders, assuming they go slowly and take a couple of days? I do not want to put my buddy in a bad situation, but I also want to do this road.

Thanks, Brian
