    That was very fun to watch. Guessing alot more fun riding it than watching. I can't believe how firm the snow was! Also helps alot the logging road snow hasn't been packed down and made to look like sheet ice. Sucks to ride on that stuff. Thanks for this. I love the blue sky and snow.:clap

    duuuuuude! fucking rad riding!!!
    being from Tacoma/Seattle and only getting into dirtbike/dual sport riding since moving to Los Angeles, you're making me want to move back for the great riding you're posting. :D
    well, I met Don 'turn_one' down here and I've made plans to be up there riding this summer.

    I'm always looking for new people to ride with but I can safely say I have no desire to ride with you.... You and your riding buddies are nuts. Keep up the amazing ride report so I can live vicariously through you while safely riding mission ridge and the like.

    btw, how do you like the berg compared to the wr? Not looking to start a brand war here, just interested in your personal (and dare I say professional) opinions

    ride on!

    Just PM me around June when the snow thaws :evil.

    The Berg is just a better all around bike.. better gearing, better power delivery, better suspension... its a great bike

    still lots of snow up there...

    that thing looks awesome.

    excuse my ignorance but where do you ride that? do the ski resorts allow snowmobiles on the runs ? or are there riding parks for them?

    Basically anywhere that isn't wilderness you can ride :wink:, except for some designated areas. You can ride the backside of the ski area, but not the front, and only after it closes for the season. Took it up to Mt Baker on Monday for a real ride.. awesome. It's like a whole new class of riding.

    Wanted to keep riding up to the summit crater at 10,000ft but my friend was overheating so he had to stop a ways down. I did not want to risk riding into a crevasse with no one around to pull me out.
