I hate asking for pointers on how to get better in the sand. The advice I hear all the time is " put ur back in the seat and go faster"

Yep Crossfits, now come out to he SHNF forest and try it at speed thru the 10,000+ two foot high sand whoops with trees 2" from your handlebars, then you know you got it down right....Saw a guy do it once but couldn't hang with him long enough to figure out how he did it. Oh well, probably better off not knowing, been hurt way too many times already anyway.

I have to work up to that, but he thought of hitting a tree scares the out of me
I mean, it looks like a lot of fun, but if something happens, I'm miles from assistance, right? (Not just half a track away)

Of course no pain no gain... now I have to think on it...

put me on that list too.....that fool never calls me to ride.




i like the sand whoops. if you time em right you can ride the rear wheel for most of it or double em. i think people have a hard time using the footpegs to pivot the bike along its horizontal axis and using their legs to kinda 'pogo stick' the suspension. its all about the timing. but dont follow me, im slow

Yep good insurance is a must for me. I'm 66 and have probably collected over 4 times what I've put into insurance policies over the past 40 years. Guess I should have learned about my limits by now, but let me tell you youngun's, age will definately teach you your limits if you don't learn them when you're young.
