    hey!

    it's only plastic

    though after my last failed attempts at climbing that rock wall

    plastic does get cut-up by repeated backward rock-slides

    next time am thinking traction control

    in the form of rain mode may help

    or playing the clutch like a dirt-biker

    Last trip up there, the track was in awesome nick - way better than when I took the Vee up there.

    Apparently it got airborne going up over the top of the rock face...

    No Vee anymore and I'm not taking the 10 through there. Older and wiser now - the 250 is the right tool for it.
