    Got a call from Slowred last night, "Hey, we're doing Wildcat tomorrow, interested?" Well, hell yes!!

    It was just Slowred on his Honda 450x, 4play on his KTM 600, and my on my Honda 450x.

    Slowred.

    Slowred on the first big down hill. Brakes are pretty much useless.

    I was trying to convince 4play that this is an actual trail.

    No worries!

    I talked the guys into a run up MAD CRASHER HILL. I went first and caught Slowred on his first attempt.

    Getting turned around and heading back down is no easy task.

    4play walked that 600 right up the hill.

    Slowred's second attempt.

    No problem!

    While on the top, we saw OldtimerTC and his buddy on the trails below.

    If getting to the top looked tough, getting back to the bottom is worse!!

    How about a nasty, rocky hill with a switchback in the middle of it?
