    Sunday SlickRock Video

    Here is a quick video from last weekend's Group Ride of a few hundred yards of the slick rock trail that we bypassed Saturday on the bikes, but then hiked later that night after both the moonrise and copious quantities of various liquid refreshments. Really nice at night as the moonlight reflecting off the rock illuminated well enough for fun stumbling, wonder if the guys will remember it under daylight? This vid was shot at the tail end of Sunday's Group Ride with Dale hot on my heels his neat XT225

    Ain't it so great to have a tagged dirt bike to ride to those beautiful places. I enjoyed your video. Thanks for sharing your ride.

    What a great mix of surfaces to ride on.
    Thanks for sharing...

    BTW, you look to be crawling up that rocky portion pretty slow. What gearing configuration are you running?

    13 tooth front x 55 tooth rear driving a Duro ATV tire. Net gear ratio is lower by about 10%-15% from stock so I top out at about 55 mph.

    While my avatar may make me look competent in reality I had the throttle twisted just as shut as possible while saying a prayer for my continued survival. Aaaah, Help me Mr Wizard!

    LMAO. Now every time I see that chit I'm going to crack up. I did that on my Mimi bike when I was a kid. I think I was also calling for Mr Wizard as well.
