But overrall it didnt go as planned and we spent the night trying to dig ourselevs out of the mess I got us into. 2 burnt clutches, 2 broken low front fenders and mud that was like playdough.
I know exactly where you were. We hit it after a little rain. Immediately it was like we were sliding across a few inches of soft butter. The guy in front of me had on new Dunlop 606s and when I saw him suddenly with no control I knew we were in trouble.

My brother barely missed hitting me from behind. Other guys piled up. One broken rib, one cracked, and a handful of broken things on bikes. The guy on the green KLR said he bent his frame.
