We tried to bump start, I tried to take any opportunity to run some higher speed laps to juice up the battery, and plugged in to a trickle charger when we took a longer break and overnight.
Other than the power problems the scrambler did everything that the smaller dirt bikes and the larger gs's did, with the only limitation being the operator .

A small sample of the company...

There were 18 of us, all women, more pics to follow.

The good news: I fell at least 4 times, 2 on each side, and didn't break anything! The sliders, folding shifter, and oberon pegs all held up. I am very pleased!
Do you have any more pictures? Part of motorcycling is testing your limits. Stepping out of your own comfort zone sometimes. Sounds like you accomplished that for sure. Well done.
If you get far enough away, you'll be on your way home.
Piss off, I'm in my Happy place.
