Good meeting some new faces; Parker, Stunt Heavy and ThomAss. First loop was with myself and first two, second loop with myself and second two. Me and Stunt Heavy got a good workout riding both loops, probably overdid it a little but I have no regrets. These old bones are aching and sore right now but a couple more beers and I won't be feeling any pain, haha.

Let's do it again soon.

You're not the only one who's aching! My bike should be in better condition next time.

Man, what a ride. Don't let SilverBullet fool ya. He'll give you a run for your money on the trails.

I'm beat. I broke my back when I was younger, and after sitting in the truck for 2 hours, I about had to crawl to the house.

Those were some of the most technical trails I've ridden. Will definitely add a few upgrades to the bike before next time. Like handgaurds, wrap the exhaust header, and maybe I need to look into a heavier flywheel and/or Rekluse.

Great meeting you all!

I'm still working on it. There's a lot to go through. Plus I think the humidity messed with it a little bit. I was using the open case so you could hear the sound better. The video goes from regular. To slow mo, to fast forward. The fast forward looks pretty cool tho. Kind of like that episode of star wars when they're flying those scooters through forest. Lol

bark busters are the original aluminum handgaurds.

Man, that makes me want a gopro. I especially like the sound affects! "oops.....ow..oooooh!"

My bike is in the shop getting the carb tuned. So no more BS again. I felt bad about that. It's getting a new clutch as well.

Cycra are pretty badass man. I never felt a hit to my hands. That "owe" was that branch smacking my goggles into my face. lol

I need something. I can think of a few times where a branch (or maybe an entire tree) decided for me that I needed to use the front brake.

Next time I'll have handgaurds, much lower gearing, and maybe a gopro of my own.

don't feel bad about the bike. it could be any one of us next time. Heck, this bike is still new to me, so it could fall apart next go-around. it's all part of riding. If you didn't crash, or have to make a trail-side repair you didnt ride long or hard enough!

Did you manage to get the clip of me shooting off into the woods? I wonder if it looks as scary as it felt.

Yeah but I've always kept my bike strong and right. I don't have the time to take care of it myself anymore tho.

The cycra have an aluminum bar with replaceable plastic. The plastic parts are cheap when you replace them. Plus they're nice and big. The only down side to them is the part that connect them to the inside of the handle bars. For that piece I bought the accerbis one. It's longer and stronger.
