    Have you ever went down into a canyon only to think "Will this bike get back out?" That's what happened to me in this video. Its the return trip home from Three Forks. I could not believe how easy the stock tires made that hill climb.

    Damn pushing triple digits on the dirt, don't show that one to the wife!

    You had 2 different yellow lights bitching in the video, one traction control I assume as you brought that up, what was the other? Looked like maybe a check engine light or something.

    You did well going down and up. It's kind of a long way out there. My wife and I unloaded our bikes at the Juniper rd junction. We tried to get to 3 Forks from the top of Juniper Mtn. but we started running into no trespassing signs or should I say private property, so we did this on our way home from camping. We didn't go all the way to the hot springs either and there were campers all over the canyon so we turned around not too far from the bridge in your video.

    I heard at one time you could ford the river and keep riding south but BLM may (I don't know for sure) have closed the ford. I could see the road on the other side.

    We thought this road was rough going down into the canyon and back but not as bad as the Buffalo Hump road from Orogrande Summit to the Hump up in the Elk City area. That road was horrible and we had two riders quit about halfway. I guess any road that has a section called "Devil's Staircase" or something like that, has to be bad. It was.

    Was your ride in the snow video on this ride or a different day?

    Here is a little video of three of us heading down Billy Goat Bluff at night.
    It's quite an iconic track in Victoria, Australia. Goes up 1200m in just under 7 kilometres. Well known for its rocks and ledges.
    Was in fairly good condition after recent grading though.

    I posted this in the Trials section for technical purposes, but thought it would be worthy of a look here as the Fall colors and literal leaf falling scenes are noteworthy. It is a test of the OSET 24 on the hiking/biking trails next to my house.

    Nice video . As a fellow X 300 rider , those roads were perfect for the bike . I have found the stock tires go many places better than I thought they would . Wish I could drop down and go for a ride with you , beautiful area .

    Having travelled extensively through the Himalayas, this trip with friends from across the globe brought together by the love of motorcycling was a great experience.

    Love to share the first part with all here.

    Awesome, congratulations on successful surgery and really fast healing!

    Soon as I finish the last book I picked up from this thread, it will be time to check yours out. :beer

    We got into a bit of a thing during our trip back in June. The Scrambler did pretty amazing though all considered.
