Standard tires and mud don't play well together...

How does over 300 miles of dirt roads and trails on street tires rate?

Just skip to about 3:40...that is where one is reminded just how big these bikes are.

So Jim, were you the guy who hit the mud fast or the guy who hit it slow?

Sonoran, its at Walker Valley up here in Washington. That day I was having sprag issues, so I was rolling down that hill at about 35, clutched in third gear trying to bump start, it caught at about half throttle. Now earlier I tried hitting the case with a rock and didnt know I loosened the banjo fitting on the clutch slave, just enough. So panic grab the clutch, I got nothing. Had to lock up the back wheel and shut it down, good times.

I've been picking my 990 up by getting the front tire pointing up, get both hands on the bar end, lift with the legs and then walk into the bike. Having that leverage really helps. Sorry, I don't have any footage of me wrastling this beast up out of the sand.
