Yes, something to do for money, or if you are young, in shape, and have great medical coverage.
Fall IN the sandy whoops and you go from whatever speed you were doing to zero just like you hit a tree.

One thing I never figured out is why they exist, why does the sand at the top not run down and fill the bottom?

Right after my last desert trip on my DRZe it magiclly disappeared and a 530 showed up in it's place.

I said fine, not great.

What do I know anyways, my DRZ is a big bore with FCR and suspension. I don't really remember what the CV carb was like. It has more throttle response than my 310 Husky but not near the response of my buddy's TE510. That bike just hauls ass on the whoops. And the suspension is better on both Huskys.
