    Yes it's a canyon and only way through.
    But it's a side picture. I find it easier to go up on the left side (and down in the middle). Bigger steps but with momentum it's doable.

    You are right about that. I chose the wrong line and got stuck there, had to walk it down. :lol3
    Loose rocks on the other side, where water runs is the way to go. Middle is though because of that big drop, about 2 feet.

    ...local ORV area has been shut down :cry

    ...spent quite a bit of time pulling over and changing the geometry of the bike trying to get the handling where I want it

    Mine have been extended front and rear.. 55mm more in the forks and here's the difference in spring length (amplify whatever this is by the length of the swingarm axle arc):

    The bike sits significantly higher. I'm 6' and I'm tippy toes (or if one foot is on the ground, the other is 8 inches in the air)

    Hope this helps :freaky

    Diek: Nice pics! I've run the (paved) River Road on an MV Agusta F4S and a GSXR1000.. but have never been to Big Bend offroad.

    I need to! :ricky

    Next time you are going let me know and I'll meet you down there.. I'm not that much further from there than you are :freaky

    Sweet! Ya man, let's do it. I had a blast. This was my 4th time to BB but my first on the dirt backcountry. It's made for the 950s. :deal

    Had to do the paved River Road too:
