Thanks Kelly , almost had to take my anxiety meds watching that video ! So being an old broke down rider with a weestrom with anakee 2s on it , I shouldn't have any problem going over that pass 2 up while drunk ? The whole crew are way too skilled and crazy ! As always , I have been following along on another "Wan" report and enjoying every post . Not only do you guys take the most awesome rides , but do a ton of work to share it with everyone . Thanks again ! Maybe you guys should tour the country doing bike events and signing autographs ? You guys are the most awesome people I have never met .

What a video, I was holding my breath, Matt does like that outside line
Hope you get to ride Pearl in the daylight. . When we did Pearl (a few years later), I was in a Toyota Tacoma! There's a lot of rock, and some deep snow. Should be some great pics! Hope the rain held off for you.
You all can really ride! Whew, very impressive..
Hard work getting that posted at 4:00AM.. Thanks!,
Thanks, MizzouRider!
Those cliffs were frightening, eh??
Haha, yeah - we did Pearl in daylight - but in the rain, of course.

Aw, it was only 2am, pacific time.

Sorry about the near panic attack
That "never met" line cracked us up!
One of the best things about doing a RR is that our readers/participants are so great!

You all are hilarious!

Hi Brian!
Definitely not the best place to take a 990, right?
You have such good video of Schofield in daylight - I saw all kinds of scary stuff I missed in the dark!



You guys! Go read TLtrial's ride report in Day Trippin' - he did a killer job.

Hi, BcDano!
Thanks for joining us . I'm glad you said "badass" and not "dumbass!"
Hope you're enjoying lots of great riding in Vancouver while you're there for the summer!








OK everyone -
Go out and enjoy some sunshine today, or at least some fresh air!

So, it's better to go up in the dark because then you can't see the really bad stuff. Got it.
That is one spooky video, Kelly. You all are very talented riders.

Wow! That was some pretty hardcore riding!

Way past my skill level, even during the day, in the dry, on my 650 Dakar!

OMG, that looks like some amazing riding,

I was doing good until you got to the hard part then I got a little QUEASY!
Awesome job, . HUGE huevos!!! Creeks crossings in the dark are a little un-nerving also.

Whew! After watching that video, I thought I was going to have to get my wife to bring me some muscle relaxers so I could unpucker the seat springs but eventually...........
You guys are amazing.

Crash Bars, Who needs 'em !

Wow , what a top notch ride report, thanks for sharing it.
I notice most of the 990's are not using crash bars and are on tipped over a lot .
Do they ever damage the under side of there fuel tanks etc. ? I use Crash Bars on my 990 but they are a pain to remove/install for maintenance etc. Not to mention a trail side repair.
Thanks in advance.

Holy mudbath and scary riding batman - - - - The whole group of you are some tough riders! It just keeps getting better and better.

I just made it back from AK last night and had to read this report before I even put away my gear. It's still piled in the middle of my living room. Make Kelly your favorite, she's a bad influence. I'm caught up now.

This picture is cool. I like the foggy appearance and the rider with the the flowers. There is just something about it that speaks to me.


Now about that ADV salute all those pages ago With the big grins on both your faces it sure doesn't look like you are flipping off the camera saying F#$% you, it looks like you are saying - hey look at this we have middle fingers and we see people on ADV showing off their middle fingers so we will too.

Kelly you are so awesome!!! You are such a big piece of these rides and you jump right in there an wallow in the mud with the guys.

Looking forward to more.
