I have this video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vvatXSnXNME That video you posted was great. That rider is way way better than me. What he rode seems doable on a 690 but would be slower. Some of the stuff in my video was challenging on the 690, due both to my lack of talent, the weight of the bike, and the too high gearing for the terrain. BTW I was riding by myself so I ride nice and easy. Can't take the chance of a big off. A 500 EXC would have been a lot easier to ride no question. I am keeping my 690 because I rode 50 miles back home on the highway!
