Yep, typical dirt crash.
The bike seems to be running like crap though, sounds like it needs a main jet change, or a better air filter....

I solo ride all the time, and my wife thinks I may end up dead in the woods.

Nice trail, were bikes allowed on it?

This is at walker valley Orv area north of Seattle.
Had a carb with an over rich needle jet...got a much
leaner one in the mail. Had a crack in the mid pipe
that I just welded up.

Fun old trail bike...

Too bad those trees couldn't have jumped out of the way. I thought the crash was going to come earlier just as the sun was in your eyes, but nope, it was the puddle what done it.

Looked like fun up till the bitter end.

Thanks for the POV.

Looked like you grabbed a handful of throttle there, I'm guessing not intentionally.Those skinny trees still hurt. Ouch!
