I've been glued to the RR.

You guys rock..... Thank you so much for sharing the trip with us. It made me feel as if I was riding along.
Please don't stop sharing your trips. Once I am back in the Bay Area, I hope I get a chance to meet all of you guys and help out when you get another flat.



thanks again. Terrific. And really impressive riding skills.

Hi guys!

I am kicking myself for not thinking of doing a poll last night!

It took me a while to figure out how to add one to an existing report...
So, I want to address comments, but can't do it without ruining the poll




Thanks everyone, glad you're enjoying the report!



oh yeah, here's the flow chart again:





I think the poll is up there ^ at the top of this page?

Go VOTE!!
(oh yeah, you can vote for more than one)

Great idea!

Yeah a poll. I think you guys are the best when it comes to this kinda situation but, how would you fix that? I'm just glad Lica stayed out from under it. Can't wait to find out. Just looking at the poll stats suggests I'm gonna be BLOWN away...............AGAIN!


The vids are incredible. Thank you.

OK, I totally screwed myself by doing that poll.
I thought it was going to be funny, but...who knows?





In the meantime,
I only had to skip a few comments, the rest are fine. YAY!

You guys rule!

Thank you, davidbrundage!
Matt actually had his own water pack, too - but sometimes we just share mine.
I can hand him the tube, you're right!

I never would have been able to ride my own bike to Hell's Gate!

My buddy Jeff tried to make himself two dimensional in the spot where Lica took out his handlebars. He looped out his 450 and the bike landed right on top of him... all on video as well. You guys are using some seriously fine throttle control through that point... steep, insane traction, new tires, shit-ton of power....
Hi Justin!
Ack! Poor Jeff!
That's so awful. Hope he was okay!


It was hard to watch these guys on that section, I was worried.
500lb bikes are so dangerous. Leg breakers for sure.


haha, I love it when you guys use "monkey fighter!"
thanks!

haha, RRR -
more "monkey fighter!"
Yeah, the sun is evil at that time of day!
And after reading about all the "hot tubs" and giant holes on the Hell's Revenge trail...yikes

Thank You Very Much
Thanks, bigdon!
They really do take you there, don't they?
I know. Matt and I were talking about it.
We'll keep doing video if it needs to be done (i.e., we can make it interesting enough)

It was so great having additional video from Radek's camera and Lica's phone -
they did an awesome job of filming, didn't they? Thanks, guys!
We got Lica's footage just in the nick of time.


And Matt did the editing for that video - he also did a really good job!
It was brutal watching Lica's hit, over and over.
I still cringe each time it makes that snapping noise.

hi bikyto!
So happy to hear it - thanks!
My goal is to make it feel like you guys are right there with us, I'm so pleased that it's working!
Aw, I don't know if I can keep doing it.
So much work, so much pressure...
But, for now - we still have almost 5 more days of riding
Enjoy!
