    ...says the man with the new Husky TE300
    You and Ms Griffiths have better equipment but the idea of commitment and method #2 might carry the day on our TWs on not too high suspended logs.

    She's real good.
    I could get over that first log with my XR.

    Not the TW though... it would be like a turtle on it's back.
    TW common-sense is to go around the log, HaHa

    I use the "slow roll over the top break the log in the middle" riding technique.


    But I made it!

    Good video. Of course the TW200 won't do any of that except perhaps the lowest of logs, but that's o.k.

    That young lady has some serious skills.

    I however, would never even THINK of scarring my skidplate as such.

    What is this wheelie thing?

    I was on board till half way through...I've used the 2nd method but then shes steps it up a little high for our little bikes. I did use the last method only a week or two into riding with good instruction and I fluked my way through it. Amazing considering she can't be taller then 5'8" and has vidoes doing much more difficult logs. Her seat height is well above her waist!

    Some of us at the NE Oregon ride last June ran into a similar "log across trail" situation, but ours was complicated by the trail being only 12 inches wide and on a 45 degree side hill. We did not attempt option 1 or 2. Some went down the hillside to go around the log, resulting in tipped bikes and pushing of bikes back up the steep hill to get back to the trail. A couple of us slowly rolled and pushed our bikes over the log. The log and one tip over can be seen in Larry's video at around 2:15.

    I remember the log being bigger and the hill steeper than the video shows.
