    Northern Michigan Trail Riding Adventure!

    The last major ride I had before I really started modding the bike, went out with a friend on an xt225. Did a whole bunch of hard packed and gravel forest roads, lots of deep rutted sandy trails, some rough 2-tracks, high speed dirt road riding, and a little pavement in between. I put a little bit more work into the editing this time, hope you enjoy!

    I have only done MT21, if I had it to do again, it would be a 241 based on lots of feedback. MT21 has been good, just relatively expensive.

    Most excellent video and looked like a fun ride,
    except for that oops fell over part. Was that a death wing toss?

    Hahaha no that was a rider failure. Got myself too far over in the rut and the sand dragged me down lol. Falling isn't bad, certainly doesn't ruin my fun!

    Thanks for watching!
