Here's a video that Sam shot on our way back home on Saturday. I decided that we needed to test the integrity of our subframes and see if they were up to the job of hauling our gear on the upcoming Roaming Rally, so we detoured through some whooped out ATV trails:

Nice ride...
It's too bad I didn't check the angle before starting on the hillclimb. . . It was 5:36 to the point of the first drop and another 6-7 minutes to get it turned around for another run, followed by the slippery rock scenario which brought me up to about 16 minutes of footage looking at the ground. Wouldn't have been so bad if I had a helicopter crew for a different angle to cut back and forth to, but I didn't.

I definitely want to go back there with some company and see how far you can take those powerlines. They seemed to go on for miles just straight across the various peaks in the distance.

I've got some more video of the riding I did with Heatmaker, Tslapper, and crew but the best will be of the "dirty bike" ride on Sunday morning that ended up being just me and JW (sorry i never did catch your ADV handle if you have one).

Some asked to see more pics of the plank. I'll just post one, since CJ is out having fun and will not post his RR until later this week.



And, an unrelated incident the next day, on the way home from Jamaica he finally rode the KLX hard enough

Bad camera angle or not, that's the stuff that makes me Jones for a small dirt bike again.
