I always enjoy watching the racing TW's, especially from a POV camera. That looks like some tough riding, for sure. Thanks for sharing the video.

OMM, there were some really fast technical riders on that ride. They were so good, it just felt awesome being out there with them. Guys that do the national enduro circuit and such. But there were also a TON of wanna-bees, with expensive, powerful tricked out bikes (KTMs) who had very little off-road skills. They were also the snootiest of the bunch. It was extremely satisfying to pass those guys and the pieces of orange plastic all over the trail lol!



Thanks everybody! I hope to have new one when I ride the Martin's Mayhem Hare Scramble on 2013-06-30 in Union CT. TW's Rule!

Thanks for the cool video. That reminded me of an enduro I entered many many years ago on a CT70. I figured I would cut down on weight by removing a few "unnecessary pieces", such as the kick start lever. It stalled in the middle of a mud hole and I immediately realized my mistake!



Nice edit job on the video.

great job riding, i loved the quick jump up and back in the saddle after your fall.

did you find the stock front fender to be gumming up? we have some real sticky mud out here and i have problems with a raised fender!



btw was that song written for this enduro? cool how it mentions hancock ride by name.

That looked so fun. I am jealous simply of all the greenery. I forget what trees are living in AZ...ugh.

I wrote it a year earlier, shortly after the 2010 Quarry Run.....Where I managed to crash my BMW R1200GS off a 300' Ravine
http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=608029.....The low fender definitely sucks in the thick sloppy mud. It's actually what brought me back to the forums; The MR Bracket high fender kit. I'll be installing it today!!

glad all turned out ok.



interesting debate and info regarding the SPOT. mr bracket took one on our sheetiron, and had good things to say about it... though didn't have to use it for a 911.
