Looks like you're having a ball. Good for you!

Thanks JD! Yeah, it was a blast, but I am with you. I would have felt alot better about the inside line for sure!

Sounds cool, I will be gone to work, and I try not to drive out of town for anything since I do so much of it for work.

Albie you shouldn't post videos of horses running in the road, it gives me flashbacks.

all it would take would be a bump from the jeep mirror and there is no place on the right to set your foot on, and then you and your bike would be at the bottom, and probably not in fair shape either!

ALWAYS pass on the uphill side, as JD said!

Great vid, I haven't been on either of the passes you had videos of so was good to be able to "ride" them with ya. Good job riding too. I bet you'll get your full measure of rocks before you get done with the passes though. And here we thought Ark was rocky!

Charlie,

this post reminded me of something.

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=825188


I would have liked to have stopped and put that smoldering fire out that we all rode past on sunday.

it looked safe, or I would have stopped obviously, but it was smoking, I had forgotten about until I saw the above linked post.


thoughts?
