More Teeth More Dirt

So two weekends ago I put on a brand new D606 rear tire and a low range 14 tooth counter sprocket. With my newfound low range I proceeded to drive around all week commuting back and forth to work, and spend time revving 6-7000 rpm achieving 4th gear speeds at a 5th gear level.

Last friday my front D606 tire showed up with a 17 tooth front sprocket, so on Saturday I slap on the front tire and saw carefully into my countershaft cover to apply my efficient new sprocket. Of course, with my new high gearing the first thing I decided to do was seek out some local trails which would have been great for the old sprocket .

Starting out I strapped the gopro to the lower fairing, hoping that when I fell over (two days before my crash bars would be delivered) I would at least get some interesting footage to watch while recuperating. Here's some footage of Sand Road, and later a rocky bit of snowmobile trail near Mill Hill east of Sussex.



The Mill Hill shelter



And the clearing just north of there with a nice view where I sat and wondered why I hadn't stuck with the 14T.

A few pictures from last fall around the same area:


























And a few clips showing some icy sections of road and a water crossing:
