Damned if you do, damned if you don't. If he never goes offroad it'll be people bitching about him being a poser wasting his money trying to look cool. If he does go offroad its people bitching about him taking a bike like that offroad.

Oh hell no... not this guy. LOL.

The fact that they are part of the GS Trophy Challenge team would make practicing on easy stuff pretty pointless. To be competitive they need to be able to take these machines through hell and back.

As to why these guys do it? I imagine it's sort of like climbing Mt. Everest. Costs a TON of money, high risk to life, and at the end of the day you might get a photo for your effort and expense.


There's bold riders and old riders, but damn few bold old riders.

Ooh, a photo! Yeah, still just not getting it. Looks like it would take forever to get through that trail.

I can respect the satisfaction in conquering a challenge, but it just looks frustrating to me. Too slow.

Ever led a .net dirtride at someplace technical? If not you have no idea of frustration on two.wheels in the dirt!

I haven't ever understood the whining on this issue. Go at your own pace and let others do the same. It's not like you're heading across country. Is there some reason to stay packed together? Heck the fast guys can always run extra laps if they want to check on the progress of the slower riders. How does it affect your ride? Nobody rides at the pace of the slowest rider and if a fast rider bins it the slower guys will be along eventually to help them out.

Now if you're actually traveling somewhere I get the desire to ride with folks with a similar pace but around here anything technical means you're riding in a confined area unless you head down to Hatfield McCoy. It's not hard to check and make sure everyone got back to their trucks at the end of the day.

I am more talking about the clusterfuck that is usually a .net ride. Bikes not being anywhere near ready/safe to ride, riders showing up late, having to lend gear to people who didn't bring any, bikes that wont start, run right, etc. Not really talking about from a speed standpoint as myself and others have stopped waiting for everyone and just meet them at any intersections. If a rider is missing for longer than his ability should allow I/we go find them and help them. Hell ask Rob (slider) about me riding at the back to help out when people may be struggling. I used to worry about the pace and being frustrated having to wait on people, not anymore. It is expected and I now enjoy the couple min breaks I and others get waiting on people to catch up. I am not getting any skinnier nor younger so I appreciate the breaks.
