yeah- same here. I'm thinking anything will probably boil over at +10k elevation.

My son, on his KTM 450, does part of a celebratory wheelie at the end of trail ride before his tired hand slipped off the throttle. I'm bringing up the rear on my Suzuki DR200. Footage makes me cringe. That was too close on the cedar tree. Luckily he landed in soft, leafy peat like dirt. Really fast on the kill switch!

I used to ride a 450. I could not imagine trying to bull dog one of those things for any length of time now. just seems nuts.

Nice^ that you on the 777 right?



Last Sunday we did a all-day epic ride from our neighborhood. 65 miles of mostly trail, all dirt.

Yeah- it's super fun on a dirt bike... they plowed a cool section of trail because of some endangered fish in a creek and this is the replacement trail. It's worse for pedal bikes but now having a dirt bike I can't complain too much.

Gahd! Ya'll are flyin'. I hadn't ridden in 30 years until just recently and I flat couldn't process info fast enough- even at my slower speed. Kind of a reality check.

Link Fixed! Follow me through the trees! This is from the end of last season. I was on the Blue #7 then, stole the lead in turn 1.

probably 30 min flat out/no stops to do the loop. you can do it both directions and add in a bunch of other stuff. there's probably 15 hours of trail just in Eagle (3 good zones within 30 min driving)
