Dave's Alta is pretty cool. I foolishly forgot to ask to take it for a ride.

I neglected to take any pics of the brutal trials sections Mike made us ride in the woods.




Here is Wes practicing some log hopping

Last trail of the day for some guys. I'm sure Wes is cursing me right now.







Lots of fun today. I will have to practice quite a bit on the sections Mike laid out. Its fun to hop logs and stuff, but its really the tight turns that are tricky.

That wasn't the only nap my Beta took today but this photo was after a particularly ungraceful over-the-handbars stunt that left me on the ground with the bike on top of me.

Phil, can't thank you enough for having us up there and I never get tired of how beautiful (and tricky) it is to ride there. Thanks for posting up the great photos and video.

It was also great to put a few faces to their forum monikers.

What a fantastic day, thank you bucho!!!

I lost the key to my surron at the gas station on the way up. Ironically, I didnt buy any gas there and I brought only electric motorcycles with me :dry:

Both Sam and I were feeling out new electric bikes so we had some new challenges. I need a skidplate, pronto. I'm not used to dealing with a bike with linkage rear suspension :dirtdog:
