Sorry I couldn't make it out today. My wife passed on a nasty cold to me and I took a hot shower when I got home and slept until noon. Looks like you guys had a good time, though.

Same rock garden. 50 yards of pain

Could you imagine NOT wearing any armor or helmet?




Awesome job Kevin. Hope you don't think I'm picking on you w/ pics of crashes. Honestly, you did great!
Hahaha, totally fine with it. That was pretty brutal for me at that point in the day. I did luck out and buy some pretty affordable armor from Rocky Mountain that made my day pretty awesome in hindsite. Took a few spills that would have really sucked with just a roost guard.
Kevin,

Thats a tough ride on that trail. I have seen many people go down there, so do not feel bad. Really hard to keep momentum up which will prevent you from tip overs.

LOL, one of my many flame outs of the day! But yes momentum was the key to many of my crashes. I'll get the clutch work down a little better with some practice.

What general area of the property is that trail? That looks perfect for me to work with my nephew on picking a line and holding pressure. Been a couple years since at the Cove

There is one of the Jeep trails that Jed and I rode last year had some long sections like that. Parts were harder

Need to get you a proper bike and then you will be looking for those rock gardens to play on. :cheers:
