Your other video is also pretty gnarly! Did you ever make it up?

Nice trying!

The 950/990's are amazingly tough bikes. I tossed mine half a dozen times on one trip alone, on Nevada sandy/rocky/silt/sagebrush infested roads. (sagebrush hits your panniers and tosses you off the road) Nothing broke except a mirror, ever after being slammed on both sides. The bike always started up and kept on going.

I have those fairing scratches too, always steeper than it looks.

Widowmaker

Cool. Is that the Widowmaker that is a few clicks west of the West Fisher trailhead of Maclean Creek trailhead? That's one big and gnarly hill.

I feel the need to jump in on this...

The demise of 2 950s...



Breaking the ice!



Should have put that new knobby on before the ride...



What were we thinking?







How long can you hold your breath?



Going down is easy, right?



My sentiments exactly!



If you gas it, it will go!



Sure, we can make that.

There was a trail on the map!



This was just before my 7 mile hike to find help to get my 520 pound 950 unstuck in the mud. DON'T RIDE ALONE!



This was a bad idea.



A very, very bad idea!



Really? It's doable...



Big airs!



Narrow bridge.





Rain in Arizona? Nope...

I found more!!



Stuck in the mud again!



Watch out for those KLRs, they got shitty brakes!



Sometimes, I don't even need any help!



1 hour to go 1 mile, that was a bad hill!!



Technically, it's doable! Ha!



I bet BIG-E remembers this hill!



And this ride...







I couldn't believe that Tom kept coming on my rides!



We don't need no stinking kickstands!

Did the impact trigger any seismic readings? Thats no easy feat to fold up a 950 like that!!
