From the video, it sounds like you were really lugging it up the steps. Was that 5th gear?

Yeah, when Slayer and myself got to the other side of 5MOH, a phrase often heard was "... and there I was tapped out in 6th gear.... "

It was. Cant wait to see the Coal Wash 500.

Logged 301.4 miles in 7 days on the ol' honda. Only 1.3 were paved, the rest was all dirt, sand, and rocks(and more rocks).

Big thanks to mylsmkj, hellsickle, ridefreak, gordy, and dudley for letting me tag along! I hope I didn't slow anybody down too much.

The weather turned out great, 50s/60s in the day. Of course I wasn't camping, we reserved the Motosuite at the Robbers Roost Resort & Spa

Hats off to Hellsickle and Singletrackslayer, it was in the 20s thursday night, brrr.

Nice vids and nice riding. I love that area. The Devil's Racetrack is one of my favorites. I avoid 5MOH, as I'd like to receive my first social security check next year.

Chris, I love that WW vid with the rearward shot. Awesome!
