Cool, Still laugh my ass off thinking about it, riding along and there is a nice tire gauge, then a tire iron, an end wrench lol.

I have been riding a lot since last year, I will be bringing the 500 and a 990A. I am looking at riding some of the same stuff we did last year but on the 990 this time.

Will be cool to check out your new bike, looks great in the pictures.

I will say that my new (to me) 690 enduro is TALL. Holy shit it's tall. I think that the extra travel of the Rally Raid suspension makes it even more ridiculous than it is in stock form. I can barely put a toe down on level ground. Hopefully, I will get some practice on it before WARPED, or there will be LOTS of bike nap photo ops.
You only need to reach the foot pegs, no need to touch the ground.

Nice. I have a feeling that you will smoke me, even on your 990. That said, I've been riding quite a bit more dirt, and have improved a bit.

The footpegs, I can reach no problem. On this bike, if I ever have both feet on the ground it means I have crashed.

Speed is relative to others around you. I have improved in speed, physical endurance and being more comfortable over the past year, but am no where near fast. I try to ride with folks that are better than I am that have a little patience, I learn a lot faster than staying with folks at my same or lower skill level. I am the slow guy a lot but I do not ride over my head and have fun.

I am looking at and editing some video now from last year, you had a couple of moments caught on tape lol.

Looks like a rope of oil shot onto her face to me. Maybe we need a higher resolution image, just to be sure....

That's one of the two reasons I ride sweep. The other reason is to take pictures of the people that crash in front of me!

Video from last year to show some of the terrain available for those that have not been out there before, or could not get out of the bottle and ride lol. Not overly exciting.

Your right, that doesn't look at all exciting.
Would/will you ride your big bike on that track? Looks a little, "skinny" in places..

There are a lot of forest roads and two track roads up there that will be fun on the bigger bikes. I would like to ride some of the more open flowing single track on the big bike also.
I do not want to run the bigger bikes threw stuff that will tear up the trail by digging trenches or cause undo damage for the trail or bikes.
Problem is, I don't know the area real well so will be exploring which sometimes leads into a little more adventure than anticipated lol.
