    Yeah and I have been looking at a way to incorporate the hill on Hwy 22. It's the only loop on the ranch ! ! ! :eek1

    Simple, we can scout a loop no problem.

    I need to see these named hills. Sounds like a good place for some tricks.

    Can you put a back gate & talk to a neighbor about the epic annual event.

    The Kel and I had a great time, really looking forward to next year. Here are some of the highlights from the boat. This is mainly Steiner Valley Ranch and another road I am not sure of the name....

    What route is this you're on?
    That all looks fun but doable on a bigger bike.

    Those clips are from Steiner Valley Ranch and one of the roads leading to it. We did the first half of the rally raid before I got beat up too much. The 1150GS did well, but I was riding in the boat so I was taking a beating.

    Dave. Did that other road start out just a bit sandy ? lol If so I know which one. One of our abandoned public roads. ;) But both of the roads were on the Rally Raid and the Dirty Raid.

    The Rally Raid was written for big bikes. The Dirty Raid? Not so much. ;)

    In the Video it didn't look to bad going down some of the dirt roads. I actually thought it looked smooth for a sidecar offroad, but then only your butt knows how smooth it was ! ! ! :lol3

    We really went all out on the suspension on that beast. The big thing is that Kel can stand up on the pegs, I am stuck sitting down with my feet in front of me. She has gotten a lot more confidence on that terrain so she tends to go faster now, that has also cut down on the amount I get thrown around.

    Yeah, I saw in the video that she was standing on the peg alot more. Looks like she is handling the rig much better this year. Also it was good to see you two at the motorcycle show there in Dallas.

    Used to go on at Balcones Country Club when my cousin was the golf pro there. Never heard of shots fired but I do like your humor. :D
