Hurricane is a blast

Nice video, that area has really rutted out, should be fun on the big GS bikes now.

If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there.

Great video thanks for sharing would like to try it. Do you think less knobby tires would make it my bike just has the 90/10 tires only 10 for off road. Thinking about getting little more off road tire next.

I'd say it depends when you go, as well as you and what bike you ride. I've done it on my KLR, up and down, with Pirelli Scorpions, MT90's (prolly a 70/30 tire) and no problem, but it wasn't as wet as in this video. I've done it on the DRZ, both with Scorpions, as well as D606's. When it's muddy, the knobbies are nice. Downhill is probably a little easier, ESP up at the top.
