    Just a video of the second half of a Turkey Run I did last weekend. Every time I ride with these guys the poor TW ends up taking a beating. People are always surprised what the TW can out there.

    Wow!!! That was fun to watch, but man talk about rough. You certainly titled the video appropriately. I'll bet you were worn out when you got done. How many miles?

    "WOW" is right!!!! That was painful to watch. I would be in traction for months if I rode that. Very surprized you did as well as you did as the TW suspension is not a good match for that kind of terrain at that speed. You must be one of our 'younger' members . Boy, I need to take a couple of Ibuprofen from just watching. Thanks. Gerry

    First of all, you clearly were kind to the KTM rider. He must have been your ride home or had something you wanted, but you were much faster than him and you let him lead the way. You are a kind TW-er. That was a cool video. It makes us all out here in the desert only wish for cool woods-like trails even more. Very cool ride.

    The run is about 70 miles. The loop passes within a mile of my house so I've been down the trail a lot. I run a trackmaster up front with 12 psi and a Duro in the rear at about 11-12. Over 3000 miles on that trail and only one flat from a nail. The guy on the KTM can fly through the trails. I can keep up in the tight stuff but when the trails open up the suspension pays for it. I did break two rear spokes and had to change them out on this ride. I think when I changed the rear shoes out,just before I left,I had the chain too tight and was in a running late. The olny that hurts fron that ride is my foot. I smashed it last year and it still reminds my to keep my toes pointed up. I try not to hold the bars too tight, just let the bike go where it wants to and hold on.

    That's one of the best video's I've seen that shows what our little bikes can do... and you were riding it like you stole it. so I bow my helmet to your ridership - Good job! Rock ride indeed, but you had rocks, water, tree limbs... you and the bike were killing it! You do seem a little less risk adverse that me, for sure, but that took some skill because, as has been pointed out, we don't have that kind of suspension.



    Good rule - Toe's up!
    Something witty...

    Another clip from a ride a few weeks ago. The TW went for a little swim but came out alright. Had to show the guys how to do it at the end.
