That is awesome. The ole cb350 isn't quite as stylish as that Triumph, but it should make it. Now the only question is whether or not my brother can handle the massive 3" of suspension travel.

yeah, we followed him in the hero sections. for the love of fellow riders either don't do it, or at least mount a more capable tire. He pushed that thing off the trail a LOT

^ That's a good point. ^

It's important to be able to keep a reasonable pace and not constantly tie up everyone on the trail behind you. Even if you wait to be last, if you're too slow you'll eventually have the sweep riders telling you that you've gotta take the pavement and skip sections.

If you can hang knobbies on it and are able to ride the absolute snot out of it, then more power to you.

The fella last year is a Bucky landowner, so...you could also buy 100 acres in the area and open it up to the event, then you can pretty much do as you please! :-)

Well, just to be clear, I'm planning on going and I'll be on this steed:


It's my brother that wants to go and doesn't have a bike that's capable. I'd let him borrow my CB350. It's already got a decent set of 50/50 knobbies, but if it's especially muddy, I don't know how capable it'll be. I'm really trying to push him to get a decent dual sport by then. We'll see how it all pans out, I guess. FWIW, my brother has been riding bikes all his life and is a skilled rider. Though, I don't think he's done much off road in the past few years.

I'm not trying to discourage, just saying do a big-picture reality check.
It's always cool to see weird stuff out there, especially if it's being properly flogged.

Not in your case.

I'm not discouraged - but am reconsidering. It's not like it's a vintage beauty that needs to be babied to protect it's show room luster.

The bike loves to be flogged. Last time I had it out, I was drag racing an RC car.


It's just a matter of whether my brother is up for a proper flogging!
