No that these are a big deal for a lot of the riders on the board but they might be a good visual for those who've never been to Reiter.
Lots of Fun

Glad to see you didn't get any pics of the bike submerged to the air filter!

Hey, we saw one DRZ at the Enduro Saturday. Pretty easy trails, except the places where a thousand snails slimmed the trail. Gotta love them handguards.

Moments? Two interesting ones. One when I was hauling butt up the mountainside in the mist. Came round a corner and found myself in midair. Lets just say there is a rider+bike imprint on some gooey mud up there
No harm done!

The other was when I developed a "natural side stand" when I came round a corner in the trees. The bike skid plate hopped up on a large root and stayed there with the rear tyre buried between two other roots. Took me 15 minutes to get it out of that one.

For the mudholes you almost need a snorkel and periscope. Fun tho!

Yeah, I couldnt get away in time or I would have been there. I had a good street ride with Stosh though.

Im trying to watch the air filter. Luckily I didnt get stuck in any of the deep stuff I went through and kept it going fast enough to not cause a problem. I am planning on a filter cleaning this week though just in case. Im planning on taking good care of that bike!

A guy on a Honda XR400R and I goofed around for a bit playin' chase etc. A lot of fun!

Yeah - he and I started on the same minute. He's got a couple of good stories to tell about the ride! No deep water on the course though - but Capital Forest has some of the slimiest clay you've ever seen. Front wheels just get a mind of their own in that stuff! Helluvalota fun.

oddly enough it does on that cell phone picture. Acutally its absolutely filthy and nasty. Even by my standards ( I think I washed my GS once when I had it and that was to sell it). I did ride those mud holes in the pic and worse.

Maybe its just its shining personality!


(I love that bike!)
