    Another collection of clips riding big bikes at Moto Supreme. I was on bald tires and this was the first time my buddy had had his 990 off road, so we didn't go too insade, but there are still some good bits in there.

    From a couple of years ago riding with some smaller bikes around Lytle Creek area. I'm real slow.
    I'd been through this area back years before with a Malcolm Smith No Wimps Ride on my 1150 Adventure. I never really knew exactly where it was. After this I did.
    Only one real moment near the end where the wind blows dust forward past me as I start a small climb. The dust cloud all but obscures a washout. I managed to just see it and move to the left.

    Very slow and lots of wind noise.

    I've watched it 5 times... But what happened? I can't figure it out in slow mo. The bike was going all over the place.

    Thats the problem with 175 deg lens. It distorts the surface so much. The road actually has 30-40 cm deep whoops on it. I go there to test out the suspension.
    Well - this time after rebuild - the valves were too open and it bottomed out 2-3 times in a row and just started flying. The last deflection was caused by me though - You see the big rock on the right - I really- really wanted to avoid that.

    the bike lost a mirror but was totally fine after that. But I broke the left boot and fibula.

    Ouch, hope you have a speedy recovery. Yes, glad you got around that rock.

    Not a lot of height on the rear tire but the front comes up great!

    @05magmn - where is this? Liked the second vid and @9:50 that sucks... Been there done that. The other 1,000 bikes in the first vid would scare the heck out of me out on the trail. Yikes.

    Both videos are in south east Minnesota about 15 or so miles from each other. At 9:50 I had my line picked out, but my riding partner was just up the trail pointing me to take the right rut instead of the left. I should just stuck with what I had planed. In the first video, that's a dept. of natural resources horse riding area, that the dnr allows a local mc club to hold rides at twice a year, in exchange for taking care of the trails. There are a lot of bikes, but the club does are really good job, and all the trails are one way trails. So you don't have to worry about bikes coming at you.
