If I were to not worry too much about time, how bad would it be with 3 inches of rear travel and 4 inches of fork travel? Back in the day I used to race a 74 CZ in the desert. Wasn't fast then either, but was all about finishing in one piece, mostly.

Sounds hard. Really hard. So I'd say maybe.


Where are you in OR? I can point you to places that are similar in difficulty, try them and find out. Or better, I or someone local to you who's ridden the D100 before could give you a tour of appropriate local trails.

Mostly all about finishing in one piece? or all about finishing mostly in one piece?

As the sweep captain of the Desert 100 I tip my hat to all you guys that raced the Adventure class. That course is tough on a well set up 450 dirt bike let alone a 500lb behemoth!

The sweep crew had to help a lot of people on dirt bikes, get them running again, escort them off the course, etc but I never heard of any of the Adventure riders needing help. Impressive.

Thanks for coming out and thanks to Darryl for instigating this craziness a couple years ago!

Yeah, a friend saw it fly off and retrieved it for me. Funny that in the 50 miles it could have fell off that it happened 20yrd from the finish line!

Great video. The best part was that you edited it!! Not 30 mins of trudging along. I think every small bike I passed I would have yelled You Suck!

Most people including me have a very short attention span so highlights are the only way to go!
