    That's a good story, have another one?
    Those whoops look manageable after the rain and the sand was more than a foot deep during the KotW. Water does wonders.

    not really, rob. at least not on the big bikes. the front wheel would sink at least 3 or 4" deep into the sand, and you had to avoid anyone's tracks in front of you cause your bike would instantly get sucked into their marks, which made things kind of hairy on a 500+ lb. bike.

    i still had fun, though.
