Here's my version of how things went down. Thanks Hellsickle and Crash for riding with me on my 1st time thru 5MOH. My friends ask if I would do it again, hell ya! But not until at least next year. Enjoy!

A test of man and machine . . . 5 Miles of Hell . . .

Nice vid Tyler, you do a good job of keeping the chin mount stable.

Thanks Chris, glad you like the music choices. I think they're the accual tunes that where playin in my head when we were out there. Stable? Its hard to stay stable when rippin(?) thru that kinda terrain.

Wish I had a better computer, about broke it's back tryin to produce the vid. Still not as smooth as I'd like. It messed up a few transitions. Oh well.

Man, I know a lot of you ride 5MOH on a regular dirt bike, but it sure looks like a trials bike would the tool for the job. Great vid, sts.

I've done both Thad and the trials bike is more tiring, but much less dramatic.

I prefer the dirt bike for making time and the trials bike for goofing around. Depends on your goal for the ride.

Being my 1st time thru, my goal was survival. Next time, it'll be purely for entertainment.
