This is the first short video I'm posting of the ride I did with Mistervelocity and Oldworld124 last week. It's related to this thread started by Oldworld124: Platinum ride by Admiral in his territory

All my troubles on the day were on just this one short singletrack trail. Bent my shifter, little crash, and then I forgot I had a kickstarter when my electric started didn't engage. After this trail was done my electric starter worked just fine the rest of the day. Weird I tell ya!

I would have kept your secrets but apparently your TW privilege compelled you to confess and repent. My whole world is upside down.

I would blame the new red, white & blue riding gear.

Those are some rather good looking trails to play on. I do like the healthy green foliage even if some gets collected by the shifter.

I seen that shifter. Yamaha does provide a folding tip shifter on the TW. How many went n bought a special folding one? Leave it to theAdmiral. I have had rides where I forgot I had electric start, lights, brakes but that was back when I were drinking. Strange times stressing us all. Motorbikes have a way of making sure you keep your head in the game.

I think you were right about hitting the front brake too much when you went down. Too much front brake will make you wash out and too much back brake will make the back tire slide around. ABS anyone? Ha ha

I'm just glad it was on one of Fred's "easy type trails" and there was no cliffy kind of thing. I really should pack a pair of depends...just in case!

Yes they are. They will even offer to help pick up your TW if you lay there long enough!

I've been trying to perfect the stock shifter folding tip. I've run into a few complications though!:giggle:

I'm glad the grass hidden stump was found by the shifter and not my foot. I don't need a bent shifter foot!:oops:

I've always found it beneficial, to tell the truth when a lie just won't do the trick!

You may need a lasso attached near your tank like the cowboys have on the saddle for Fred's advanced rides. If you fall down a hill you can lasso a limb or big rock and hang on for dear life, your bike too if it is attached to the other end.
