The FS road just sort of ends in this wash. Deep sand one way, loose cobbles the other. Time to turn around!
The closest I came to dumping the bike was coming down this hill, so I thought I'd stop for a pic on my way back up. In real life it's steeper than it looks in the picture!
And that's when my camera ran out of memory!
I had no idea that I'd piled up close to 500 pics on that thing. There was some other interesting stuff, gnarly rocks and more hill climbs and the like, but you get the idea.
Looking at the pics I have to say that the terrain looks way more intimidating in person, but also after tackling it today I'm a lot more confident in both the TW's and my own ability to handle this kind of stuff. The TW is ready to keep going, all I have to do is keep on the throttle and point it towards the smaller rocks!
I wouldn't have tried to ride this trail without some beefed up protection, but as it turns out I never clipped the engine guards or plate on any of those rocks, even towards the end when I was definitely pushing it in terms of clearance. That TW has proven itself again to be capable of more than I've given it credit for.
