    I know the same secret code. And use it regularly. :deal :lol3

    I've ridden that area a fair amount. Used to leave my dad's place, track through Harrison Hills, then jump on Bryan's NWAT for a bit...through Dunbar...and I'd end up near Pembine. I'd run up and cross the state line and ride the Onta-Iron track back towards Eagle River, the catch some other tracks I have and work my way back down to Tomahawk. Some of the best riding is just winging it. I know Vilas County a bit better, but I've been there a lot more.

    I got my V-Strom really stuck to hell on a sand road just south of US 8 west of Dunbar a couple years ago heading up to Copper Harbor. Goddamn mosquitoes were a bitch. :lol3

    Yeah, let's get him up there. Plebs, too.

    During a stand-up wheelie, you'll likely find that your feet angle up a wee bit from gravity. Also, while it's good practice, it's not as important to cover the rear brake during long wheelies on a four-stroke with lots of compression braking (unless you're attempting perpendicular rear fender draggers)

    South of 8 and West of Dunbar is my stomping grounds. I know that area very well. I know the sand road quite well. Just rode it for our event 2 wks ago, the southern half of it anyways

    Well, there's a slight downhill when heading north. (I was maybe 3-4 miles south of 8) And there's a cut that crossed the road. Almost like for a power line, but there was no power line. Maybe for fire control? Anyway, Anakee 3s were on the bike. I was rocking pretty good up on the pegs on wettish, kinda firm sand. Some rocks here and there...no big deal. Started down this grade and I lost the firm stuff. I was then in some silty dry shit with no bottom. :rofl I tried moving over into some weeds and by then I was D-U-N done up to the swingarm. No way I could get that pig to float at all. Spent the next 30 minutes digging that bitch out. The Anakee 3s were overmatched. :lol3

    Dude that stuff is so good! Not too sweet. It's like you're getting hammered on candy.
